Is it ever okay for a man to hit a woman?

So I saw a post in another group about how people are all up in arms over Whoopi Goldberg saying that if a woman hits a man, she shouldn't be surprised if he hits her back. Now, she didn't say it's okay for a man to hit a woman, but just that she shouldn't be too surprised if he does if she hit him first, but people are taking it completely wrong and saying that even if a woman hits a man, he should NEVER hit her back.

I disagree. I think if you, male or female, decide to hit someone, you should be prepared for them to hit you back. Gender is irrelevant. You shouldn't hit people, but if you do, well, be ready for the consequences.

What do you think? Is it ever okay for a man to hit a woman?

Umm.. I'm raising my son not to get girls. Today it's so many people who feel if the girl hits first, he can hit her back. I think it's unfair because they're so much stronger.

I have seen women going after men like wild animals. Yeah it is ok to DEFEND yourself so you can get away and not be injured. To go past that is wrong. But you are not a punching bag just because you have a penis. Women use the excuse of men should never hit women to abuse men. It has to stop.

I agree. It's ridiculous to think that to some it's okay for a woman to hit a man but not for a man to hit a woman.

Quoting Anonymous: No one should hit anyone ever.

That's not necessarily true, though. There are plenty of females who are as physically strong as males or stronger. That's a very old-fashioned idea to think that it's okay for her to hit him but he can't hit her because she's weaker. Instead, she should be taught not to hit him, either.

Yep. I saw a girl jump a guy a foot taller than her and just beat the crap out of him. And he just took it, for the longest time, letting her claw at his face and punch and kick and bite him, until finally, after about 10min, he had enough, and shoved her off him. She called the cops and claimed he hit her and was horrified when the cops took HER to jail instead because she didn't have a mark on her but he had a black eye, a busted lip, and scratch marks all over. Nobody should be a punching bag, male or female, but everyone has a right to defend themselves - not taking it too far, but to defend themselves against attack.

Completely agree
