If a woman attacks a man, how far can he go to protect himself?
This is a no win situation for a man to be in. If he does nothing, he gets beat, stabbed or worst. If he attempts to defend himself or even restrain her, he will leave bruises on her and will end up in jail and court. I was confronted by an angry woman. I raised my hands as if I was being held up to show I would not respond to her. This woman spat on me and then called the police saying I hit her.
Even though she had no bumps or bruises, I was taken to court and threatened with 3 years in jail if I didn’t go to anger management class. I am still trying to figure out how I was the one angry.
This is a tough one. October is domestic violence awareness month. People do not realize that men get battered too. Often by the time things turn, it is too late. Many men who are abused, become abusers. So it is the retaliation that gets caught.
Take for instance this situation that happened here. A young lady shot and killed her EX boyfriend and then killed herself. http://www.examiner.com/women-s-relationship-advice-in-charlotte/edris-msundastood-dickson-murder-suicide
To think that it is reasonable for a woman to assault a man without reprecussions is ridiculous. Everyone should keep their hands to themselves. PERIOD.
And DeDe you are wrong. Jennifer did in fact throw the drink and hit eric with it first. It did land on him. He came back and put a drink in her face. Don’t dish that type of drink throwing foolishness, if you can’t take it. It was dumb and childish.
Well how much should we take from a woman who thinks it’s ok to hit a man. A Scratch, punch, bite, stab, bullet!! Get real. Wanna be treated like a woman then act like one. And that includes your mouth. Yeah, you “Uber Men” can say what you want because I know females who will flatten most of ya’s. Stop when told to stop, let us walk away when we walk away. If I can’t walk away or talk you down then you are going down. And if you fighting my wife, I will not stand around for that either.
A man should let it go unless she keeps running up, than wait until you see the police than knock the hell out of her, your going to jail anyway.
Be like celie when she told Harpo “Beat her” Eye for an Eye growing up I was told treat those how you wanted to be treated.
I have a son who is in his 3 year of college and I have taught him not to hit women. He understands most women are no competition for him and he can walk away. In high school a girl came charging at him swinging, the teacher said he never hit her back but he did grab her to restrain her until security came. I was very proud that he didn’t hit her. He knows if it is a life or death situation to do what he has to protect himself.
Men deserve the same amout of respect we as women demand, some of us as women should have been tought to keep our hands to ourselves
Men deserve the same amount of respect we as women demand, some of us as women should have been tought to keep our hands to ourselves, I don’t believe in domestic violence be it man or woman
I truly feel that if a woman hits and beats like a man on a man she needs to be hit like a man. I like the caller who said he will never hit first but he will hit back. I don’t case how frustrated with a man we still don’t need to put our hands on anyone. Learn how to open your mouth and communicate.
I never condone a man hitting a woman or being physical in any way. I have a 19 year old son and he was raised to not even think about calling a girl out of her name. It’s never ok for a man to be violent towards women, but women have to stop justifying their bad behavior. I work with teens everyday and we are raising a generation of girls who believe that it is ok to be out of control – it isn’t. Girls can’t act violent and then expect men or anybody else to be the bigger person. We all have to learn to be in control of our emotions and that’s the bottom line.
Doug I lived through this one being married to a woman that had man issues and liked to fight litterally. I have never fought with a woman before or since we broke up. I have been cut hit in the face with brooms needing stitches and just living through hell. I dont think you should ever hit a woman but I dont think you should ever let someone hurt you either thats just against laws of survival and instinct. i say if you cant get away dont puch her instead choke her out she wont be hurt you will be able to leave and if your smart never come back to a woman like this. One quick story she was fighting me I called the cops I managed to egt her out of my apartment and hold her down until they arrived I was on top the police stepped off the elevator and saw me on top they pulled out there clubs and told me to get off her i told them if i let her go she will fight me they insisted I let go she kicked me square in the face busting my lips and nose only good thing was they arrested her. BTW she’s a Chicago Police Officer now and has had fights with every man she’s been with I know this because we had kids together and yes they live with me and now that our oldest is a young man she has threatened to shoot him a fighting womans issues are deep rooted and should not be taken lightly.
Save yourself always no matter who or what… Mike
My mother always told me no a man should ever hit a woman and a woman should never hit a man because he can’t hit back she stressed that as much as the first she said everybody should justt walk away when it gets to the physical stage.
Supposedly women are acclaimed to be the weaker vessel and the society do everything to protect their weakness, in which they hide under this protection to become confrontational and the first to hit. Nobody has the right to hit anyone no matter what the reason or excuse is. We all need to know our place and respect one another. If you truly love them you will never hit them.
Hitting a man is wrong and disrespectful… If you treat your man this way, you deserve to be smacked and dumped… Being a white woman with a black man, i think this is another reason some black men prefer a white woman because most white women do not behave this way. It is sad to say, but in my experiences, the majority of the women that you see acting aggressive, loud, and disrespectful toward their men are black women. Most men do not like the drama, especially in public. No class…
hey man i have 6 sisters and they can hit harder than some men my thing is if u hit me i hit back so if don’t want 2 get hit don’t start. i beleive in lady’s fiirst and all that but there’s a limit 2 how much a man is sopose 2 take .
I would never disrespect my man like that anyway by putting my hands on him. I can’t do that and command respect in return.
Last time I checked, both men and women are murdred. Now, I’m not saying murder is right, but neither gender is above that, so I don’t know what world some people leave in. In the real world, no is above violence. Keep your hands to yourself.
If a woman slaps me opened handed once, that’s her “free” swing. If she reaches back to swing at me again, I’m going to stop her, and it’s going to be painful. You want to be treated like a lady, act like one. You come at me, squared up, I’m going to treat you like you just grew a certain male appendage and defend myself. If that means placing an elbow in the solar plexes, that’s what you’re going to get. My mother didn’t raise me to hit women, but she also didn’t raise me to be anyone’s punching bag…
