When is it ok to hit a woman? Most people would say never, but why? Why is it not ok to hit a woman, ever?
This is something I have been thinking a lot about recently, and just cannot come up with a rational or intellectually honest argument where I could make such a blanket statement that states is never ok to hit a woman. Realistically, there are times when it is ok to hit a woman, but of course no one wants to come out and admit it because we've been so programmed to think that hitting a woman is one of the biggest 'sins' a person could ever commit. But if we are going to be honest, there are times when hitting a woman is justifiable.
Before I proceed let's be clear, I don't think anyone hitting anyone else, regardless of gender is an appropriate way to handle things. But we have to be honest and admit that, at the end of the day, we are animals who experience intense emotions that override the logical part(s) of our brains on many occasions.
If one is going to say that it is never ok for a man to hit a woman, then one also has to say that it is never ok for a woman to hit a man. But we see women getting away with hitting men all the time. Just do a search on the internet and you'll get tons of examples of women hitting men and getting away with it:
So why are women allowed to get away with abusing men? The primary reasons are that women are portrayed as less threatening, weaker, delicate, and incapable of causing any serious harm to a man. This is, of course, completely false. Women have shown that they are quite capable of causing serious injury to men when they attack them. And don't pretend that women can't be vicious fighters, because they damned sure can be.
Women are also usually excused for their violent actions, as was demonstrated in the video. If the man cheated, lied, or did some other bad thing, then the violence is justified, and even seen as comical in many instances. A woman hitting a man is not a big deal to most people.
So when is it ok to hit a woman? When a woman hits a man is he allowed to defend himself? If it were a woman being hit by a man we'd shout out a loud YES! So, if this is the case then these women better toughen up and expect to be on the receiving end of a swift palm or fist.
Look ladies, if you throw the first punch you are not guaranteed immunity from a retaliatory punch just because you are a woman. You want to be a badass bitch and hit a man? Then you need to be prepared to take the same thing you just dished out. And if that's a fist to the face, well too fucking bad. You can't go around hitting men and then whip out the gender card as a shield. It doesn't work that way... Or, sadly, maybe it does.
