☆  gutsy  根性のある


Someone who is gutsy shows courage and determination. Last month, there was the tragedy in New Zealand, with the mass-shooting at a mosque. The NZ prime minister took a gutsy approach, and refused to use the terrorist’s name. She called him a criminal and a terrorist, but said she would never call him by his name. She gave a gutsy and emotional speech that day, and even the people that voted against her agreed the speech was powerful.

I think New Zealand is lucky to have such a tough, gutsy prime minister. I’m not sure I could use the word gutsy to describe Australia’s prime minister!! Would you describe the Japanese prime minister as gutsy?
