older lotr illustrations sometimes depict éowyn wearing ridiculously small armour. apart from the problem of general sexualisation of the only female character (who really does anything), there’s another hilarious thought:
éowyn pretended to be dernhelm, a man. to fit in, she must have worn men’s armor. so the armor in the illustrations is normal for rohirrim.
therefore, all the rohirrim rode to war just like that:

“But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him.”

And he looked at the slain, recalling their names. Then suddenly he beheld his sister Éowyn as she lay, and he knew her. He stood a moment as a man who is pierced in the midst of a cry by an arrow through the heart; and then his face went deathly white; and a cold fury rose in him, so that all speech failed him for a while. A fey mood took him.
'Éowyn, Éowyn!' he cried at last: 'Éowyn, how come you here? What madness or devilry is this? Death, death, death! Death take us all!' . The Return of the King, J. R. R. Tolkien.

The purest expression of Love in Tolkien’s works is following
Sam follows Frodo into Mordor. Arwen chooses to follow Aragorn’s fate instead of the one she was born to. Amroth will not leave Middle-earth when Nimrodel cannot follow. Sam, Merry, and Pippin will not let Frodo leave the Shire alone. Beren and Lúthien follow each other into the darkest places in the world, or rather Beren goes, alone, repeatedly, and Lúthien pursues him with the same fervor that he once used to pursue her.
Tom Bombadil follows the river to find Goldberry and once he finds her he’s always following the path home to her; the only paths in the Old Forest that are dependable and constant are the ones that lead to his home and to Goldberry’s pool. “I have my house to mind, and Goldberry is waiting,” for him to follow her home at last.
Gimli follows Legolas and Galadriel into the West, and bears a love so powerful that he is the one exception to the rule; he bore no ring and yet is welcomed for the sake of his love for them. Sam swears to return to where he thinks Frodo died after the duty is done, but in that moment, the hardest thing is not the weight of the Ring or the fear of Sauron, but the burden of leaving him. Éowyn and Faramir stand together on the walls of Minas Tirith as they wait for the end. The Three Hunters push themselves to near impossible feats of endurance pursuing their friends when they are in danger. The ents constantly followed the entwives to their gardens, even though they didn’t care for them much, and the story goes that one day they will follow them and find “a land where both our hearts may rest”, a place where they can both be happy.
They go only because they would not be parted from thee -- because they love thee, Éowyn whispers.
You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin -- to the bitter end.... But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word, Merry scolds.
Don’t go where I can’t follow, Sam weeps.

Gimli: Let's play two truths and a lie!
Aragorn: Oh, I'll go first!
Aragorn: I'm tall, my eyes are green, and I'm 87 years old.
Éowyn: Um, that's the right idea, but it's gotta be a bit more challenging for everyone-
Legolas: His eyes are blue.
Éowyn: ....
Éowyn: He's how maNY YEARS OLD???

Recently I've been having a fun time thinking about a group of adventurers going up against some sort of kingdom-threatening bad guy that nobody can stop (as one does), only when they finally reach him the bad guy starts monologuing! Yes, he is protected by a Prophecy that No Man of Woman Borne can kill him! (macbeth is a classic for a reason and if jirt can steal the line so can I. no regrets.)
Cue the party huddling up to plan like 'ok, is this man-as-in-male meaning the ladies can go Éowyn on his ass? or is it Man as in mankind as in human? Do we go get some attack dogs somewhere? An attack cow? What? Cows are way more dangerous than sharks, there's statistics about it! Whatever, we don't have time to go get an attack animal! What if it's about identifying as human? Quick, is anyone in the party a furry? C'mon, don't be shy, the kingdom is at stake!'
Meanwhile the quiet one (it's always the quiet ones) sort of hanging in the background of this panicky planning sesh goes 'huh', and then he just walks straight up to the still-chortling big bad and slays him dead.
Stunned silence.
Then of course there is a lot to do in the aftermath and everybody's busy, but later the rest of the party is like 'ok, really, how did he do that'. They are trying to figure out what's up with their bro. Let's call him Brian. Brian the Baneslayer, that's got a ring to it.
So the party's trying to figure out what's up with Brian and how he managed to kill the big bad despite the prophecy. They're like 'is Brian a trans woman, have we been misgendering Brian this whole time!? Is Brian somehow secretly not human? We definitely need to ask Brian. What, no! You can't ask directly, Brian is like the most private person ever! We've just got to make sure Brian knows we're cool and accepting no matter what so Brian can tell us how the flip the prophecy was eluded.'
Mission: We Affirm All Identities is go! Various party members, with various levels of awkwardness, 'casually' bring up stories of their own queer identities, or that of their beloved friends and family and... Brian smiles and nods and makes quietly supportive noises and that's it, no sharing of stories. They have semi-staged arguments concluding that 'people are definitely people and deserving of all support even if they were somehow not a human people' and Brian just sort of nods along and still nothing.
(the quiet ones, man, their secrets are too powerful)
Anyway, this goes on for several weeks before one of the more straighforward of the party members breaks down like 'Brian, Brian, we all love you so much no matter what your whole deal is and how you got around the prophecy. we just love you, ok?' (yes, alcohol was involved)
And Brian cracks up, as he finally puts together what the team's been trying to do. "Oh my gods, you nerds. I forgot you didn't know. I'm not trans or anything, my parents are. I wasn't borne by a woman. My dad had me!"

“Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. ‘But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund’s daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him.”
“The winged creature screamed at her, but the Ringwraith made no answer, and was silent, as if in sudden doubt. Very amazement for a moment conquered Merry’s fear. He opened his eyes and the blackness was lifted from them. There some paces from him sat the great beast, and all seemed dark about it, and above it loomed the Nazgûl Lord like a shadow of despair. A little to the left facing them stood she whom he had called Dernhelm. But the helm of her secrecy, had fallen from her, and her bright hair, released from its bonds, gleamed with pale gold upon her shoulders. Her eyes grey as the sea were hard and fell, and yet tears were on her cheek. A sword was in her hand, and she raised her shield against the horror of her enemy’s eyes”
