  • I think if anyone hits anyone else, regardless of their sex, it's okay to hit back if you are defending yourself.

  • Of course, in a perfect world, no one would hit anyone else. :-)

  • depends on why she hit him, if she hit him out of self defense or defending her children then no i don't think its okay for him to hit her right back

  • yes, if a woman is man enough to hit a man then she needs to be treated like one, and get whats coming to her but only in equal force. doesnt mean if woman slaps man then man beats her till she is bruised and/or broken, thats wrong

  • No. Its never okay for a man to hit a woman. Unless he's trying to save his life or the life of someone else. And on that same hand, a woman shouldn't hit a man either.

  • No...I don't think its ok to hit anyone even if they hit you. In terms of it being a man he could easily defend himself and use his strength to prevent further violence instead of hitting her. I think it would be wrong of him to hit her back.
