Do you agree with this?

I was talking to this guy the other night and he informed me that if some girl punched him (not in a playful way), he would punch her back... even knock her out if she hit him hard enough or wouldn't quit trying to fight him.

  • My SO says the same thing. I think I do agree, if a girl think she is tough enough to punch a man, not joking, then she should be tough enough to get hit by a man. I don't mean a woman who is being abused, then fights back. I mean the women who have never been hit by a man and think because they are "girls" they should be able to hit a man without him hitting her back. Which is why I don't think it's ok for anyone to hit someone else, man or woman.

  • Even if a women hit a man. It is never right for a man to hit a women. We are not as strong as men. It is easy for a man to stop a women from hitting him with out hitting back.  Unless the guy is a really small man and the women is really tall or big.

  • Well, speaking from experience as someone's "punching bag", no it isn't okay! I was in an abusive relationship with someone before I met DH, and it took every ounce of courage to leave. My DH would NEVER hit a woman! He was raised to treat a woman as you would treat your mother.

  • Yes and No. I came from an abusive home and I don't think that beating a woman is right. A man is a lot stronger than a woman, and even when SO and I are 'play wrestling" he sometimes hurts me with out realizing it. They don't know there own strength. But i have seen cases where even I think that a woman should he put in her place. SO had a friend and we went over to pick him up one time and his wife (who was a total bitch) was throwing a fit and punching him in the face and chest as hard as she could and even kicking him!!! But he never even defended himself. I don't think a woman should be abused but i also don't think a man should have to stand there and take that kind of abuse, if i had been him i would have punched the crap out of her!!

  • LEGALLY a man does not have the right. Period. Tell your friend he will go to jail.

  • I think that if a woman hits a man without provocation (meaning she is not defending herself from him hitting her), then he has the right to stop her. Do I think he should do that by hitting her? Not necessarily. I think he should try to get away from her, or restrain her first. But if those do not work, then hitting as a last resort to defend himself and get her to stop hitting him, I guess would be ok. But I can't see any man not being able to simply restrain her or get away. I don't agree with men hitting women, but I also really hate women who use the fact that they are women and that men shouldn't hit women to try to get away with crap like that.

  • This is something I never get..... It isnt an abusive situation....if they are not together....if a woman hits a man, he should beable to hit her back...even though it does seem to be weird and disgusting...if you really think about is unfair.... and the OP who said men are stronger.... I have seen plenty of Big girls hit little guys.....and especially when a woman can talk sh*t and then cries and complains afterward...
