I was about to post the same thing. It's the fact that Tauriel is the token female guard that gets me. Why not have every, I don't know...5th Elven guard a female if you are trying to show that it's not that unusual for a female Elf to be a soldier? It's the giving of Tauriel a prominent talking role that makes her look shoe-horned in as a token gesture to this "feminine energy" they suppose that women viewers need. I for one certainly don't!
