Guys, If hitting women back was more socially acceptable would you do it?

Okay so i DO NOT think hitting anyone is okay or ideal, but if a guy hit you and you hit him back people probably wouldn't hate on you for it because it wouldn't be so socially frowned on, what i'm asking is IF people didn't find it bad for a man to hit a woman back would you do it?

  • Option A, if she's going to hit like a man, she's going to be treated like a man, i don't care what people thinks, if a girl lay a hand on me, there is a possibility that i might break her hand...

    If any male douchebags wanna play the hero, he might risk to get seriously hurt, especially that i'm armed most of the times...

    If a girl raise her voice, i'll ask her politely to shut up and respect a man, if i did something wrong, i'll appologize, but if i went away and she followed me to attack me physically, this is were i will lose my temper...

    • Thank you sir

    • @Wowgirl10q your welcome miss wowgirl 🙂

  • I wouldn't hit a woman in anger because I could do a lot of damage in a moment of stupidity that I would immediately regret.

    Women aren't weak but they are much smaller and they aren't built to give and take a punch like men are (heavier jaws, higher bone density, heavier hands/fists) so our capacity for harm far exceeds all but the most exceptional women.

    to be fair I also wouldn't hit a man half my size, I don't have to hit them in order to eliminate any threat they pose.

    As with many things, weapons change everything, if a woman has a knife I will break her arm and jaw like anyone else.

  • I dont see why anyone should hit anyone unless they are in danger.
    And your average woman probably can't hit your average man so bad that she destroys him unless she uses an object. So I don't understand why a man would beat up someone he knows is weaker than him, unless that person had a weapon or something.
    I personally wouldn't hit anyone unless I'm in danger.

  • I might bitch slap her, if she attacked me. I couldn't hit her with a fist, though. I mean. I'm a bodybuilder. And women's bones are half as dense as men's bones. One punch, and I would shatter her face. I couldn't do that to a woman.

    Like, there have been some complete cunts I've known in my life, though. This one girl drove me close to suicide, when I was young, by systematically spreading awful and vicious rumors about me and turning most of my acquaintances against me until I felt entirely alone, isolated, and felt I had nothing more to lose: this was at a point where I had already lost almost everything, so losing that last bit was... brutal.

    So her? ... I'm not sure if I would be capable of doing it, still. But boy the fantasies I had about hurting her. Luckily, a couple guys befriended me and stayed on my side and didn't believe her lies, and that kept me stable enough to resist and keep to my morals. But I'm still not sure I could bring myself to do it. Like. I won't even fight guys who are smaller than me. It makes me feel like a bully. It makes me feel cowardly and weak.

    No. I don't think I could, even if it was socially acceptable. Unless it was a slap.

    Not just because women are weak, though, but also because I just like them. I think it's a natural instinct for men to want to protect women. I think for most of us, it's just innate. Like it is for children. Most people have that innate instinct to protect children. I think we do for women, as well. I can say I feel I do, at least.

  • Probably not.
    I smack and toss my girlfriend around and choke and spank her. But that's just in the bedroom and was all her idea for kinky fun (well, the choking was kinda me). I still feel bad about it on occasion and would never actually do it in public.

  • What a fucked up question.
    Yes, I would hit a woman back, frankly, I would gladly kill a person in response to non-lethal force.

    Instigators of violence are scum, and they deserve to be treated as scum.

  • A guy hitting me would be a genuine threat so that’s why I’d hit back. A woman hitting me bare handed is unlikely to be, so I’d just grab her arms.

    A woman with a weapon or good enough to land strikes with a closed fist *is* a threat so yes an elbow to the chin will settle her down.

  • Around here (the part of Norway I'm in) it's *not* socially acceptable to hit *anyone* even in self defence.
    It is *legally* acceptable though.

    As for what I would...
    Hum...
    I wouldn't hurt someone without their consent.
    But possibly yes depending on the context...

  • Well, if you look at the comment section on YouTube videos of men supposedly defending themselves and hitting a woman back, you’d see that people don’t really find it bad for a man to hit a woman back. I personally don’t care if anyone finds it bad to hit a woman back, if I’m trying to defend myself and think that I will suffer harm or death, I’m going to do what’s necessary. If that means running away, sure, but if that also means throwing a haymaker and a sidekick to the face, sure.

  • Putting the "equality" argument aside, women are more fragile than men when it comes to punishment so unless she's using a weapon or trying to claw your eyes out you really shouldn't hit her. What could be a black eye on a men could end up as an orbital fracture, a broken jaw or worse on a women. Bone density is a bitch.

    • @up_64 clearly a deep desire...

    • What do you mean by that. let me clarify I've never (maybe as a kid dunno) and hopefully will never hit a women. but i think its cheap that women can act that way without repercussion

  • Largely no. Yes equality etc bla bla. But fact is a man hitting will do more damage then a women hitting. Which is why the only exception to hitting a girl I will make is spanking you can’t do any real damage there besides bruising and that’s a last resort.

  • I dont really think it's wrong in all cases and it's a fine line between protecting yourself by restraining or push away and hitting. I personally would not strike a woman but I would restrain her with whatever force is necessary to not get hit anymore.

  • If you're not my mom or grandma you better not put your hands on me.

    I'll probably let her get away with the first hit but if she hits me again especially on my face she most likely will get hit back by me.

  • I have been hit from behind on the back of my head by a woman with a stiletto heel , totally unprovoked , yet I did not hit back , but I did threaten to , she backed off really quick... then was really apologetic , claiming " mistaken identity " ... I just told her to stay the fuck away from me... or suffer the consequences.

  • I don't care if it's socially acceptable, if she attacks me, she can expect that I defend myself, with full force if necessary. I wouldn't treat a woman differently than a man, attack me and I'll fight back.

  • I'd hit a woman no problem. Some of them really deserve it. And if they are feminist, SJW, or man hater they get a full force closed fist punch if they ever hit me to start something. Same with any mangina that tries to defend those kinds of people.

  • No way! I would feel horrible about myself for doing something like that. I despise 3 things more then anything else: animal cruelty, child abuse, and violence against women. I think men are naturally inclined to protect and care for women and I feel that men who do harm women are either mentally ill, or witnessed that stuff growing up and therefore learned that it was normal.

  • I'm so uncomfortable hitting women it's damn near physically impossible. But women hitting men is just as unexceptable and all bets are off once someone raises their hand. Not for me but like, whoever hits first is at fault. Not automatically the man

  • If I feel like I'm in actual danger, then I'll fight back.

    But I've been hit before by people (men and women) who didn't have the physical capability to seriously harm me, and I feel like hitting them back would have been an excessive response.

  • No, because I've been hit as a kid and I know that it is so heartbreaking and so saddening, it cracks your soul in half. Especially if it's by someone you love.

    I wish it was socially acceptable though, especially in self defence, because when you are the exception, you get a very strong point across and you'd teach people not to hurt loved ones in general.

  • The bottom line is that I'm going to use the minimum amount of force I feel is necessary for my safety. In an extreme circumstance, that could be deadly force - but, again, only what I need for my own defense.

    I have never gone on the offensive and hit a woman (I've spanked them, etc. in a BDSM relationship, but that's entirely different), and I doubt I ever will. If I had to get into a fistfight with a woman because she was capable of hurting me, I'd do it without hesitation, but realistically, MOST women aren't capable of seriously hurting me with just bare hands, and so I'm more likely to restrain or push away rather than punch - and that assumes that I can't simply back away.

  • I'm not really a violent person, but I don't see gender as a reason not to hit someone back, especially if they laid hands on you first.

    'Men who hit women are weak', lol, wouldn't that make women weak, by default, which itself is also sexist. Not every man is stronger than every woman and being stronger doesn't mean you'll win in a fight. If a small guy started a fight with a much bigger and stronger guy and hit first, then surely the big guy shouldn't hit back, as he's bigger and stronger?

    I don't agree with this 'real men' and 'real women' bullshit, like how the fuck does that even determine whether or not someone is a man or woman, just because they don't fit someone's ideal description of what they want.

  • Uh, this isn't why I don't hit women. And I don't think "hitting someone back" after they hit you for revenge or whatever is a good idea anyway. I only use physical violence if it's the only way I can see to protect myself or the people or things I care about. I don't "hit people back" because of some misguided sense of "justice."

    If I'm ever forced to hurt someone, I won't be throwing a punch. I'll be ending them, or at least their ability to threaten the people I care about, swiftly and with extreme violence.

    In that regard, I don't care whether you're a woman or a man. If you're hurting the people I love, I'm ending you without hesitation.

  • Well this is where is tricky, hitting women not to punish but hitting women the same way I would want them to hit me, to knock some sense into me, if a woman is on a selfish rant and is being a female dog "slap" that's your family in there! Pull yourself together, something like that but I'd also expect that in return from her in a similar situation that I would struggle with. But for punishment never!! And I'd say when men get a slap they probably got it coming and that should be saved for times when he really deserves it to have the most effect. But the goal is to never have slapping in a relationship if you can help it

    Restrain them yes.
    My son then 10 a big ten being almost my size was having a temper tantrum in his room and throwing things around. I entered his room and tried to settle him down he tried to hit me so I ended up holding him in a way in which he couldn't.
    I did this until he calmed down.

      He does have a mother or a sister or a girlfriend, right? Does he like it if a man came and did this to them...

      If your a man and physically strong, you can't just go to touch a woman's private parts or unbutton tops... etc

      Your strong to take good care of a lady and to protect her...

  • I read your description.. I hate when people think a woman hitting a man is equal to a man hitting a woman.
    The weights aren't equal at all. Females will scratch him with her nails at most, while he will make her visit the hospital.
