I was raised to believe that the man is the absolute power and authority in the household. If we as woman do something wrong then it is acceptable to hit us, even if its for the smallest of things like leaving the toilet seat down. The bible states that we are property and we are to treat our husbands and boyfriends as our owners and or master which means that if we do something wrong we are to be punished.
I'm a guy and i would definitely kick a woman's ass under a number of circumstances. And I'm not against being e gentleman, i didn't grow up in the ghetto and i must have hit women once or twice in my life. I wasn't proud of it but it was the only way i could avoid being kicked and insulted. A woman is genetically weaker than a man, so any harm you want to inflict you should consider that before you fight back. So say this: if i insult a woman and she slaps me over the face that's OK. I was an ass i deserved it. Other than that i see no reason why a girl should hit a guy period. If you hit me like a woman i understand and i move off. But if you hit me with an ash tray... Or throw a blunt object at me, or hit me with your fist. Than i will take you head on like a man. I will kick your ass all over the place. I never EVER hit a girl that didn't hit me first, no matter how pissed i was. And yes, the dude who said don't throw stones from your glass house was absolutely correct in his statement. If you see a guy that's like twice your size, maybe you think he's an idiot right, but you respect his power and either make friends or let him be. But if you're out there making smart remarks and insulting the dude than you're asking for it. Especially if he didn't provoke you. So beware ladies, you might think you can get away with everything just because you're women, but 76 percent of people don't agree. ;)
If you say that a woman is physically inferior, you're being sexist. What if a bodybuilder woman came up to an obese, nonathletic male and assaulted him? Would the situation still be worse if the genders were reversed? I thought people wanted equal rights, not a matriarchy. I thought that's what feminism was all about.
The only way I would hit a girl is that, or if they start the fight. Unless it's my girl. But if they cheat on me I might walk away. But if they're going to cheat on their husband or boyfriend that loves them to pieces they deserve to get punched or smacked across the face because it is just so hurtful. That or if they're trying to get me from my girlfriend or wife.
If a girl is in my face screaming at me, even for a dumb reason, I would want nothing more than to smack her. However, I probably wouldn't even do that to a guy. But if there was a situation where a lady would go crazy on me and begin assaulting me in front of my kid or assaulting my loved one, I wouldn't hesitate to teach her some manners. Realize that part of equality comes with a price. You wanna act like a man, then I'll treat you like a man.
Is it EVER acceptable? Yes, especially if you HIT me.
1. If a man is stronger, than DON'T TOUCH HIM. Would I go hit a UFC fighter and say, you can't touch me, I am weaker?
2. Sometimes violence is necessary. You want proof? Some women get annoyed at you, and keep hitting you if you walk away.
3. You are still a "man." Who cares about what some random white knight thinks? Do you wake up in the morning to please them? No. Let them think they can snap a man's neck when they want to. Yes because they will just stand there and let you do that. Typing it in a keyboard and doing it are different.
4. Just use common sense. I am not saying decking the women, I am saying using enough force.
We live a in a stupid society. The tolerance that the a lot of people preach is only one-sided. Violence is wrong. Why are we so divided? Men are human as well. When women hit men, it is not right either and it is not fair. Why are people so quick to tell what a real man should and should not do? Yet, they never talk about what a real woman should and should not do. When a woman attacks a man physically first, she has no right to become a victim. We live in a society that promotes violence to men. It is not right. Women need to held accountable, if you cannot articulate how you feel without resorting to violence then you have a serious problem. Women need to be taught about self-control.
Women are so quick to scream for equal rights and equal treatment, and if we are truly to be equal it must be in all ways. I am 26, I wasn't raised with any antiquated ideas that it is alright for a man to beat a woman just because. But I have come to the decision that some women deserved to be hit, just like some men deserved to be hit. If a woman can hit a man because she is being pissy then why shouldn't it be acceptable for a man to either defend himself or slap a woman when she deserves it? As a woman, as an adult, and as a person I accept that what I say and do effects the person I'm with and if I do something worthy of a slap then I am fine with that. My mom did it when I deserved it as a kid, and I don't see any difference for a significant other to do it now that I’m an adult. I know that men tend to be stronger than women so there has to be some sort of restraint, but considering women never use restraint, I think that this is the only compromise. It is disgusting to see women who cheat, lie, and destroy a man and when he snaps and grabs her, he is the one going to jail…he is the demon. People need to grow up and take responsibility for their actions, and not be so damn surprised that when (she) is a horrible person he might just lay hands on her.
My parents both instilled in me the great sense of honour in how men treat women. Because most domestic violence incidents involve the male partner as the aggressor, my mother made it very clear to me that hitting a girl/woman was never acceptable. My father shares my mothers sentiments. In almost forty years of marriage, he has never once struck her. But, in saying this, the debate did come up on time in college while at lunch with my classmates, and one guy shared my opinion, but added that one had to be cautious, because such a value potentially weakens or endangers a man if he ever found himself dating or marrying a conniving woman. He stated, and I agree'd with him, that for the most part "it is unacceptable for a man to hit a woman. The ONLY times when it is allowed are, 1. After she has struck him 3 times across the face during the same dispute. 2. After she has struck him once in the genitals. 3. If neglecting to do so endangers his life."
Simply, the idea that women are somehow 'just different' to men with regards to how physical violence should be construed is pathetic. First of all, a lot of women are more than strong enough to beat a man senseless, and take a decent hit. A lot of men aren't strong enough to seriously hurt anyone by hitting them. Nobody should ever initiate physical force on another person, but in cases of self-defense the genders of the victim and the perpetrator really do not matter one bit. Adult women are just as mature as adult men, and are just as capable of threatening, attacking and injuring others as men are. They should face the exact same consequences for their actions as men do, and the idea that they should get a 'free pass' from being hit when a man in the exact same situation would be, simply because of their gender, is pathetic and sexist.
It really breaks my heart seeing it's ok for 71% of people it's ok to hit a woman ... Some of you are talking about self defense, are you serious or is joke ? YOu men know perfectly than you could prevent a woman from moving and hurting you since you are phyically superior ! Using self defense is beeing a coward !
I have read all of the blogs, I'm a 30 year old female, I don't agree that it is acceptable for men to hit women, if a man were to hit a woman the power ratio is very unequal. Many of you mentioned that there are women weighing 200 pounds plus. There are trials that prove no matter how much a woman weighs it has no relevance on her strength. If a man hits a woman (no matter her size) it is the equivalent of a woman hitting a 10 year old child. The guys trying to justify hitting a woman and hiding behind the "SELF DEFENSE" act. Rubbish. If I were ever to consider hitting a man it would be in self defense. But his power would probably render me unconscious. So guys, man up and stop the abuse.
And equal rights is mentioned constantly not even understanding what women want with equal rights. We want equal rights in pay, as statistically women doing the same work as men get paid a percentage less. That is what we are fighting for, not so you can use that as a green flag to justify your aggression!!
He is stronger...point blank period....I don't even understand how someone people think a male has the right to EVER put hands on another female. NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER should a male hit a woman.... I am disappointed to look and see that 74% is totally okay with a male putting his hands on a female. It just breaks my heart.
Haven't you people learned anything in school? It doesn't matter who starts what, you're both in trouble for fighting period. Its never right for anyone to hit anybody. Its against the law! Nine times out of ten the man goes to jail even when the woman started it; you know why? Because she is all beat up and he isn't! Just because a woman hits you automatically there is your excuse to beat her up. She couldn't do that to you if she tried! Believe me I've tried! You men make me sick with your egos. If you can't love women for what they are and embrace them then do us a favor and be gay! Go beat on your boyfriends you sissies!
It is not ignorant to say men are stronger than women. It is a scientific fact that men have greater strength on a whole than women. Men are brought up to be more physical and to wrestle and fight. Generally, most cultures including America do not as a society promote women to learn fighting skill like boys do at an early age. I actually believe that would be better to train boys and girls how to defend themselves early on. But that is not the case. There is absolutely no reason that a man should hit a woman. People have confused equal treatment under the law to mean all are equal. A law does not change the fact that most incidence of domestic abuse are caused by the men being the aggressor. And also, defending yourself does not require you to hit someone else. You can block, grab, and push someone aside in order to remove yourself from a violent situation. All of you who say that it's ok to hit a woman should feel very bad...and you are the reason why their is still such a high amount of abuse in this country.
No man has the right to put his hands on a woman. I don't care if she's a bodybuilder and he's skinny and anorexic. I can't believe so many people think it is okay. You people are crazy. I don't care what a woman does, no male should put his hands on her.
And men wonder why women are bitches! True story, I grew up with a mother that was an EXTREME man-hater. So rather than follow her lead, I decided, “You know what. I will not be like my mother. I am going to enter teen-hood and, subsequently, adulthood with no preformed delusions about men.” And I TRULY entered into the world with an extreme optimism regarding men and their intentions. Years later, I have become jaded, cold and callous as a direct result from men like these, those who are clicking YES, and having some smart*** comment about women deserving to be hit and whatever other demeaning comment your simple brains can muster up. Get with the program guys. I don’t mean to be the one to break it to you, but we have surpassed the 1950’s. Women are outdoing, outperforming, and outsmarting men. Point blank. And if you’d like to challenge that, I’d urge you to do your research first. So the next time a woman is “going crazy on you”, let us think about how your selfish, ignorant, simple-minded behavior may have contributed to her behavior. Like Newton so beautifully put: “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Just physics. Have wonderful lives! Thank-you.
This is from a guys point of view, it is never ever ok to hit a women ever. Doesn't matter what the circumstance or reason is never. They will always be a girl I don't care if there in a bad mood or not there still a girl. If you say yes it's ok that's not right ignorance. A girl is a girl
Things will be lost like your trust in men, hearing, or even a bit of your tongue. It's usually not a fair fight by any means. I'm taller and stronger than most women and my brother can still toss me around the room like a plastic bag. The excuse he uses is that I push him first and equal rights, even if hes the one provoking. I would say its okay to pin down someone who's trying to cause you great harm or maybe even slap a person who really needs it, but beating the daylights out of a woman is never okay.
A man doesnt really know his strength and when he uses it that one time when he's hitting a woman he might end up killing her. Think about this, would you ever hit your mother. The answer should already be no so that already indicates that you shuold not hit a woman. Women are like red apples soft, sweet and easily brused. Don't you EVER lay your hand on a woman you should have enough sence where you can do a self defease move and not hurt her. A woman was hit by her husband and she fell and hit her head on the edge of the counter and died, do you think thats ok. The husband went to jail because of that do you want to do the same? Think about it.
