It is ok for a man to hit a woman.
Debate Rounds (3)
When a girl hits a guy, everyone thinks that the guy did something bad. But when a guy hits a girl, everyone thinks that the guy is a "horrible, mysogynistic, sexist jerk." Say Alice hits Bob, then Bob hits Alice back. Everyone will think that Bob is evil. But what if Bob is defending himself? What if Bob is trying to save his own life? If Alice hit Bob repeatedly, but Bob followed society's rule of "A man should never hit a woman," then Alice could kill Bob! That is why I think that men should have the right to defend themselves from women. Con, your move.
First off, pro, the title is misleading. I realized that AFTER I posted the debate. Mistake on my part. Sorry. The topic should be if it is ok to hit a woman IN SELF DEFENSE. Second off, this isn't about "women should be abused ." This is about if a man has a right to defend himself if he is attacked by a woman. Again, title mistake on my part. A man has the right to defend himself from a woman if the woman is assaulting the man. Lots of people believe that men have no right to defend themselves from women. In the Declaration of Sentiments, there is a line saying, “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal.” Basically, men and women are equal. Yet, society's rule saying that "Men cannot hit women no matter what" basically gives women the upper hand. Not so equal now, is it?
Challenge Accepted. 40% of domestic violence is suffered by men. Now, that might seem relatively miniscule. DareLondon did a social experiment to see how the public reacted to domestic abuse, both man-hitting-woman and woman-hitting-man. How the public reacted to a man hitting a woman? Intervention and warnings to call the police. How the public reacted to a woman hitting a man? SMILES, LAUGHTER, AND ENCOURAGEMENT. That's right, folks, my argument of women having the upper hand is proven! According to society, if a woman hits a man, then it is okay, without any regards to the man!
