Hitting a girl in self defence, wrong or justifiable? Well I had a discussion with friends about girls and hitting them. Haha. Anyways, we were talkin about said scenario where a girl of equal size as me lets say(I know kind of out there) starts swinging, lands a couple, and you crack her back in the face and put her in her place. Has never happened to me but it seems my friends seem reluctant and would just take it, because its a girl. What is this ? You always hear about women fighting for equality and all that, if they want to be treated equal, they're gonna be treated equal. Wouldn't you all this a double standard? " We want to be treated equally, BUT, we can hit you but you can't hit us back ! ". I'm not sayin anyones ever said this just kind of trying to put it into... an examplke? heh . Anyways, what are peoples thought on this ?
