Remember I think you're cool & a good person. I just have serious background where battered women are concerned.
It will never get to be an easy going topic for me.
And I know my emotionalism doesn't help.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

When the wife begins hitting their daughter over the head with a rolling pin?

*smack*
"That's how it feels, mother of the year !"

A good solid jab to stun her just long enough to grab up the baby girl, and a cell phone, and walk to the car to call the cops on your way out of the house, without her being lucid enough to chase after the 2 of you with a melee weapon, or worse?

Monsters aren't exclusively male, and there's probably 1 or 2 female ones that should feel lucky to have gotten away with just a hard slap to the face!

The only time I hit women is in the bedroom. Blush

My rule of violence is this: "Use of physical force is warranted to the extent necessary to neutralize a threat."

Gender is irrelevant. If a chick comes at me with a knife held high, she's gonna hit the fuckin' floor.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.

Looking back it did not come across as I had intended.

My only experience was with the parents of a girl I dated in high school. The step-dad would beat the mom from time to time. It was not a good situation, cops got call just about every time and they did not do much. She hid out in the battered women's shelter while the kids would disperse to friends houses. Eventually they would all go home. It did suck. Eventually she got him kicked out and they got divorcer, but that was actually over him getting some other woman pregnant and not over the beatings. I think we have made some progress since the 1980's (when I was in high school) but still not where it should be.

If a woman goes and hits a man she better be ready for him to hit back. I find it absurd that women get a pass on this.

When she takes her pants off in front of other men to get laid, but only does it with you to shit on your face.

RE: When is it OK for a man to hit a woman?
I will never advocate hitting a woman. There are other ways to defend yourself without resorting to violence. My father always told me to always maintain my self control and he did everything he could to make sure I did (this includes a lifetime a study in different martial arts disciplines).

This teaching has served me very well. At one point I was assaulted by my now ex-wife with a skillet. I took the skillet away from her after she hit me with it and walked out of the house. Called the police and they took her into custody. if I would have done anything aggressive even after being hit I am almost positive I would have ended up behind bars.

RE: When is it OK for a man to hit a woman?
It is never okay to hit anyone! Self defence is one thing, but beating the shit out of someone who swatted you is a barbaric move. I agree, women and smaller men should own up to their own actions, but if they hit a much bigger person and that big person beats them up, that is animalistic. It scares the hell out of me how lightly people treat domestic violence here... I thought only bigots did that.

I wonder who has treated domestic violence lightly? Consider

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: When is it OK for a man to hit a woman?
I really hate the title to this thread. Instead of making it about gender it should be about teaching good conflict resolution skills without either hitting the other. This should also apply between parents and children, and same sex couples.

It should apply to even boy on boy fighting. If you are bigger than someone and you know they cannot hurt you, even if they attempt to hit you, you never do anything more than you have to to stop it. No different than expecting a cop to stop when they have something contained.

Knocking someone out when you know you are bigger, has nothing to do with gender and everything to do with your own insecure ego.
