Most Helpful Girl
It's kind of one of those fine lines- I would agree that if I hit someone I should be prepared for them to hit me back. That being said, I don't generally go around hitting guys except playfully (they often playfully hit back) and if I ever accidentally hurt one I'd be upset (the few times a guy even acted hurt I was upset and apologized immediately). I do hate girls who think they can go around hitting guys with impunity- that's just ridiculous. The only time I would ever hit a guy in order to hurt him would be if he was physically hurting me or someone I loved. Then it's justified.
But let's go out on a limb and say you're in a relationship with a girl and you get into one of those really intense fights, she just clocks you one. Are allowed to hit her back? Well, honestly my gut reaction is no, don't hit her back, but definitely restrain her so she doesn't do it again and then end things because obviously you don't want to date a girl who's going to hit you to hurt you. But I suppose I can't logically argue it's wrong since if our positions were reversed, I'd feel a girl was justified in hitting a guy back.
The one difference being is that while I consider myself fairly fit and strong (I'm not jacked or anything but I'm not a weakling), the facts are that being a 5ft nothing fairly thin woman, I simply cannot hit as hard as most men and thus would not do near the amount of damage if I hit someone as if a guy did...So I lean towards no, but I can see where your buddy is coming from and wouldn't argue with him as long as it was ONE hit, not actually continuing hitting the girl after she hit him once.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
