    You really searched for something to justify your anger at women.
    It`s time for you to grow up. This is i-am-bored, not i-am-a-sociopath

    danari. no. I am presenting this as a serious question. I really want to know if anyone thinks it is okay to hit women ever. The title was just a joke really.

    And I didn`t search for it. Why do you think I have anger at women? Can I have it at just this one deserving girl?

    Men should never hit women. In a situation like this, he should have taken the abuse, or walked away. In a less crowded environment, it would be acceptable to use his superior size and strength to subdue her, and prevent her from attacking again. If she is bigger and stronger than the man, then he should just walk away.

    I know, it`s weird, and whatever, but men just don`t hit or fight women like that. It`s not done.

    It is absolutely ok to defend yourself against anyone that attacks you regardless of gender, race, age, or whatever.

    In fact, if someone thinks they can get away with violence because they think someone can`t or won`t retaliate because they`re female, black, 70, etc., they probably deserve an extra lesson.

    But I do believe as a general rule things should be proportional.

    Actually, I feel that if a woman is bold enough to throw a swing at a man`s face, she should be prepared for retaliation. Women can`t demand equality and at the same time demand special treatment and allowances. Don`t demand equality if you`re not willing to accept the downfalls of equality as well.

    1234 Don`t try to make a sexism argument.
    If you wanted an open discussion you could have asked was this justified? Which was no, on both sides.
    Because realistically you shouldn`t be resorting to violence against anyone, opposite gender or not.

    Clearly you`re pushing for this to be some "hurr double standard" thing because in you`re two comments you mention the aggressor`s gender more than 5 times.

    Of course this is a gender issue or question. I wouldn`t have even asked the question if it would have been two guys. Derp.

    It is an interesting question. At the fundamental level, the "never hit a girl" view is extremely sexist. Granted it is true that generally, men have higher muscle mass than women, the loathing to hit a woman is based on the perception that women are the "weaker sex."

    In this situation, I don`t know. Physical violence should be the absolute last resort, and defensive in nature. A person does have every right to defend themselves against physical aggression.

    I wouldn`t have hit her after the first kick, probably not even after the second punch. Hitting her after the third would be self defense, regardless of the gender.

    Some Americans are rather keen to have guns to protect themselves, right? I imagine they`d be perfectly willing to shoot an armed female intruder on their property. Self defence, and all that. Surely hitting someone in self defence who happens to be female is a less extreme example of the same principle?

    She totally deserves what she got. She kicked first, he hit back. She threw a punch, he hit back. I think he showed great restraint to limit it to one. I`m damn sure it would have been more had she been a guy behaving that way. So many young women/girls think they can act like men so don`t complain when you are treated like one.
    The `don`t hit women rule` you are all bleating about applies to women who behave like women. PC brigade wanting it all ways again.

    I don`t know, I kind of feel like it`s really stupid to try to pick a fight with a man who is obviously superior in strength and size than you. I`m really not sure who had it coming, but I think he was justified in hitting her back, perhaps not so hard to destroy the glass window, but she did have it coming.
    In most other circumstances, hitting women is just not okay. Sure, that`s sexist, but we`re generally physically weaker and emotionally sensitive (before some derp chimes in with, `MY FRIENDS SISTER`S COUSIN`S STEPMOM CAN TOTALLY BENCH PRESS 800 LBS WITHOUT BEING SPOTTED,` yes, I said GENERALLY).

    @Gerry,
    I don`t thoroughly agree since I can think of no reason why he should simply tolerate having been assaulted. Would have been best if he just walked away, yes, but, as drawman noted, she got what she deserved. There`s also no reason to allow her to think it`s okay to hit guys in the future and expect to continue being treated like she`s a lady. Having said that I also have to note that we have a very limited clip. It`s quite possible that this episode was caused by something he did and he actually deserved what he got.

    The reason we say that it is wrong to hit a woman is that generally speaking men are bigger and stronger, but specific cases vary. Sometimes people should be punched back... male or female, no one should ever punch first!

    Any human is capable of destroying another human, by punch, weapon, etc. Yes, most men have a weight, height, reach advantage, but that does not imply all men - this man, for instance - instigate the fight. It`s first come, last served. She picked the fight but was unable to end it. She got only what she asked for. Threat neutralized, the instigator will not continue the fight. Next.

    This is were feminist "equality" fails miserably. Women say that want to be treated like men, but when it comes down to it, they`ll retreat behind the "weaker sex" stereotype and cry when their violent actions result in an equally violent reaction.

    To those women that assume that men won`t retaliate, for fear of the law, I suggest you not tempt fate. This chick could`ve been severely lacerated by that broken glass and died.

    Just as I wouldn`t try and punch Brock Lesnar, you violent women should have some damn common sense and realize the repercussions of your actions could be deadly.

    This woman got exactly what she deserved. She not only attempted to pick the fight by kicking first, but she fought dirty. The man in the green sweatshirt was preoccupied with his "discussion" with one of the men outside the door. It is clear that she meant to "sucker punch" him with a kick to the groin. She missed and kicked his thigh. He showed restraint. If it had been me, I would have laid that t w a t out so that she could no longer fight me at that time.

    If it`s in genuine self defense I would say it could be justified to hit a woman. This situation however was in no way self defense, as a man he should have taken control of the situation long before it got to that stage and got out of it. The first stage of self defense is not getting into a physical confrontation in the first place.

    #1- Never. Got it?
    #2- There is no way to tell what, if any, conversation passed between the two- he may have said something offensive to her.
    But a real man would have made the herculean effort to... take a freaking step back- out of range. But this douche merely escalated the situation.
    He`d make a great American cop.

    So what the hell do you want? Chivalry and be treated like a lady or equality and be treated like an equal? One way or the other. Can`t have benefits of both.

    I agree that we did not see enough and maybe that guy started it all with god knows what, but if she`d try to start poo by sucker punching or especially kicking my groin and thinking she can get away with it because she is a woman (or even that the other blokes will protect her when poo hits the fan) then I`d b!tchslap that idiot without a second thought. You just don`t do that, if a guy did that he would be picking up his teeth from the floor with his broken arms. You start poo you pay the price, that simple.

    @Origin Such a classic and moronic use of that argument! Chivalry vs being `treated like an equal` - I see what you are trying to say, but as an example about hitting women? Are you serious?

    Equality is about morality, rights, status and opportunity. But guess what - Women and men (with exception, but especially this case) are not physiologically the same in terms of size and strength, and that simple fact means you can`t go around shoving them through windows as if they were a dude who stood a chance..

    Of course, this line of reasoning also comes with the expectation that a physically weaker person should be wise enough to refrain from attacking a physically stronger person.

    In this situation, assuming she initiated the physical aspect of the confrontation, there are really only two possibilities: either she was attempting to exploit the social expectation that he would not hit her back, or, she is stupid enough to believe that she could win against him.

    Take your pick.

    @Jowsh: So where`s your personal line? Do you have to analyze the situation in depth before responding appropriately. Let`s see... It`s a woman.. She weighs less than me... Maybe she`s younger... White... Blonde... Drunk? Mad??

    Or just meet force with force if that`s what you`re inclined to do (within his rights to do so but certainly not obligated).

    What if it were a guy the same size as the woman and same circumstances? Same answer?

    Too many variables to make absolute rules...

    How about it`s just not ok to hit someone, but if you do you should expect to get proportional force back?

    @HumanAction See what you are saying there! I feel like I don`t, and that `line of reasoning` doesn`t expect people to be "wise enough to restrain themselves" - People are morons. I have no idea what her motive was, but two birds with one stone,

    @nettech98, not sure if I would class myself as having a line as such (thanks for asking) but, only acting in self defence is probably a good rule of thumb for me or dare I say anyone, which addresses your multiple scenarios which seem to focus on some kind of eye for an eye system - force for force, proportionally. Since you asked my opinion I think that might be a youtube worthy formula for a fight! ;D

    She deserved it.

    I love to see vids of women getting punched in the face. Chances are very very very good they have had it coming for a long long time...plus, I am not the guy about to be hauled off to jail.

    It`s a win-win. Mouthy broad gets what she has had coming, and meat-head gets sent to jail.

    Equality bitches. Don`t get physical if you can`t take it.
    Also: at some point, if you run your mouth long enough, you deserve some physical punishment because it`s the only way a mouthy new age "empowered" "woman" will learn.

    She was being a little bitch, you`re having a verbal argument why would you kick somebody in their testicles? what if she had seriously injured him? What if something ruptured and he couldn`t have kids?

    That being said, doesn`t mean I didn`t gasp in horror when she went through the window. I think it`s sexy if a guy doesn`t hit a girl back, just because it shows his restraint and a cooler head in heated situations. It makes HIM the better person. It has nothing to do with shouldn`t, I just like when they won`t.

    Very well said, Swaywithme. Nutshots are "funny" in America`s Funniest Home Videos (to some, I guess), but are actually a pretty serious damn injury. She was the first to make it physical, you can tell she was watching for his attention to be away and his nads to be in range and then took her cheap shot ... I`m very much against men hitting women ... but she asked for it.

    The second time when she went through the glass though ... wow.

    Was expecting that i`d flinch but no. That was straight up reaction and she deserved it. I personally have met few women that hide behind "guys never hit girls", fortunately when i`ve received such treatment i`ve been able to bearhug them after first punch. That usually gets the message thru that if poo really starts flying, they have no chance. I do agree that even if you get hit, the right responses is not to hit back but i interpret this video as straight up reaction to anyone hitting that dude in that moment.

    And for women: save that nutshot for when you really need it for self defense....Anywhere else it`s as cheap as a guy suckerpunching you in the face.

    @Jowsh: Exactly, but it`s not a free pass to act like an aggressive b!tch above any and all repercussions. If anything, she should have been aware she was picking a fight with somebody stronger and bigger and she should have predicted the consequences. Yet she threw the first punch. A dirty one to boot. He put her in her place with a single hit and did not beat her - at least a modicum of restraint on his part. And a few moments afterwards she tried to sucker punch him again. Either she is that stupid or knew well what she was doing and thus knew the consequences.

    If you want to be treated like a lady, act like a lady. If you`re acting like douche brawler from a pub expect to be treated as such.

    I would have stood up for her and punched him if it were the other way around, this way she pretty much provoked it.

    A real man would punch her for the simpel fact that she believes she is equal to him and does not hestitate to take him on, how sexsist is it then to say: oh i can`t hit the little woman, becuase i`ve been brought up to think that women are helpless creatures who don`t know what they are doing and need protection.
    She knows he`s two feet taller. she knew where his balls were. and after that first punch she had an idea of how hard he could hit, she thought she could take him. So stop your chauvenistic BS and treat the lady as an equal and teach her that she is responsible for her actions as men are for theirs.

    just out of curiousity, if a female soldier fires at you, do you refuse to fire back becuase she`s a woman? Idjits...

    I think it`s typical of todays youth. They have no concept of consequences, teacher gives them a bad grade becuase they are to lazy to do their homework? parents will kick a fuss. Omg i get paid so little to work? parents will buy them what they need. the list goes on. it`s a sign of the times when managers write books for other managers how to deal with young employees that call you up to say the missed the bus, can someone come and get them?

    "Women say that want to be treated like men, but when it comes down to it, they`ll retreat behind the "weaker sex" stereotype and cry when their violent actions result in an equally violent reaction."

    Some women say that they want to be treated like men, and some women retreat behind the weaker sex defence. They are not necessarily the same women.

    Do you have any evidence that they are the same women saying both things? Can you name one actual specific woman who you know has done this?

    Neither are men all the same in size and strength, and you don`t see uproar when a small guy picks a fight with a big guy and gets his arse handed to him.

    Take the gender out of this and you`ve just got a small person foolishly picking a fight with a bigger person and losing.

    But guess what - Women and men (with exception, but especially this case) are not physiologically the same in terms of size and strength, and that simple fact means you can`t go around shoving them through windows as if they were a dude who stood a chance..

    You`re rationalising your sexism, and that`s both ugly and irrational.

    If an adult attacks another adult in a way that`s intended to incapacitate them and which might cause permanent injury or death, they are a serious and immediate threat and it is reasonable to use significant force to stop them being so. Someone who kicks a man in the balls is someone who might kill him, either from the kicj itself or from further attack when he`s incapacitated. His life is threatened - it is appropriate for him to defend himself with some leeway on the amount of force he uses.

    Women are neither children nor superior beings and shouldn`t be treated as either.

    I think it`s sexy if a guy doesn`t hit a girl back, just because it shows his restraint and a cooler head in heated situations. It makes HIM the better person. It has nothing to do with shouldn`t, I just like when they won`t.

    Your approval wouldn`t help a man in the hospital or the morgue because he didn`t defend himself.

    Restraint and a cool head results in the use of reasonable force, not accepting potentially fatal attacks without responding because the person attacking you is in the "right" biological group.

    Try re-reading your post with different biological groups. I suggest "black" for "man" and "white" for "woman", since there are some common stereotypes.

    It`s disturbing that culture has pushed us to ask this question in the first place. Let`s get back to reason, everyone. Supposing that a woman has some special status "not to harmed" in any circumstance is stupid, unrealistic, and degrading to gender relations. Women have a very real potential to hurt men, just as men have a very real potential to hurt women. Neither are exempt from defending themselves appropriately.

    Yes, it is.

    I think this definition sums it up nicely:

    "To devise self-satisfying but incorrect reasons for (one`s behavior)"

    Find a selection of definitions here:

    Some definitions

    Rationalising is a way to cover up your reason (or lack thereof) for something by constructing a rational reason for it that is false, either because it isn`t rational at all or because it`s not your real reason, or both.

    Supposing that a woman has some special status "not to harmed" in any circumstance is stupid, unrealistic, and degrading to gender relations.

    But it`s perfect feminism, so it`s unlikely to change given the dominance feminism has over sex and gender issues.

    Its roots go way back, though, and used to make sense. For most of the existence of humanity and for pre-human hominids, people lived in small groups. Dozens, not even hundreds let alone thousands or millions. In those circumstances, the harsh realities of procreation hold sway - a man can breed dozens of children in the time that a woman can breed one - so the survival of the tribe depends on protecting women far more than men.

    We don`t live that way now, but that`s a relatively recent change and social norms haven`t changed to match. Feminism has leveraged that in its endless quest for one-way sexism in all things, but that`s not the only way or the best way.
