If people are unable to defend themselves, no matter who they are, one group will become the slaves of the other.
I'm a women, I can throw a punch, It would be almost insulting for the other person not to fight back.
equality..the name speaks for itself
If a women is the primary aggressor in any argument then yes a man should be able to hit a women but if there is no other option to escape the conflict then i believe force is needed for ones safety.
EQUALITY! It's all any woman wants so this would be giving it to them.
"Men are stronger by nature" well if women know this they shouldn't hit men in the first place. Don't dish what you can't take.
In certain situations it is necessary. Nobody should just walk around backhanding people, but if your being harassed it is justifiable.
People these days want equality, they will sure get equality...
Because we shouldn't have to expect to accept abuse
Lol, women shouldn't get to be treated nicer just because they're women.
Equality. Gender doesn't matter so if someone hits you, hit them back.
An eye for an eye.
Only if the woman is attacking (IE: attempted murder)
If a woman seriously hits a man then the man should be able to hit back. No question.
It's illegal for anyone to hit anyone. If men hit women or women hit men. They should be charged accordingly.
I picked no because no one should be hitting each other in the first place and if you (any gender) retaliates they are at just as much fault as the person who started it. It's better to just walk away.
that is not a gentleman to hit a woman back!
Do the appropriate thing and call the authorities. Don't continue the chain. Chances are when you hit her it will leave a mark. So, she could spin the story and say you hit her first, which they are more inclined to believe...even if you both have marks. However, if you are the only one with a mark, it's obvious that she hit you and that you didn't retaliate. The police will always believe the women because you are the more perceived threat and men have a harder time controlling their emotions (hence the results of this debate).
Physically women are weaker so its best not to hit them..
It isn't right just for men to hit women. But if you mean 'If a woman hits a man she shouldn't be arrested but a man should' than I don't support it. Both genders should be arrested if they hit anyone.
Hitting back is not self-defense. It's a form of revenge of the weak-minded person. Turn the other cheek and let the woman who hit first get the punishment.
david cook, my owner thinks men cannot hit women back.
