First, I want to clear this out of the way
Under no circumstances do I condone a man hitting a woman, unless life threatening.
Under no circumstances should a woman not use common sense.
I was reluctant to write this, but with this year having all the controversies like Ray Rice and his fiance and Jay Z and Beyonce’s sister, I thought I should write this post.
1.) A woman should use common sense
This is for the women: Just because you believe a man shouldn’t hit a woman, doesn’t mean that every man believes that. If you hit a man, and he hits you back–well, you asked for it!
Feminism will lie to you say that there are no differences between men and women, but here is a reality check–>there are!
On average, men are stronger than women and even the strongest woman cannot compare to the strongest man.
Take that for what it is and use wise judgement when you start an altercation with someone.
2.) Don’t act like a child
Both parties should always keep their hands to themselves and the “I didn’t know better” excuse doesn’t work.
3.) It’s Disrespectful
Men, don’t hit women…You are strong, it hurts, it does emotional and physical damage.
Women, don’t hit men, it is extremely disrespectful, especially if he is your husband or close relative.
Violence should only be used for extreme cases of self defense.
4.) It is not as one-sided
While there are abusive cases, and I am not dismissing those; more often than not, especially if the man had no abusive patterns or behaviors in the past, there is normally something that drove him to that point.
It is not normal for a woman to be just sitting there and having her husband beat her to a pulpit. There was something that that lead him to that.
It doesn’t justify it, but it does clear up the automatic women=helpless, innocent, didn’t do a thing, victim scenario.
5.) Men can be abused with physical violence too
Except they have no legal backing like women do. Men are just expected to stand there and take it. How would you like that?
Think before you hit a man.
P.S. My next post will be a lot more lighter and I’ll provide a link to the new blog I am working on, but it will probably not appear until the next week or so, since this is my last week of school and I have finals. The following post after that will be an update on my Japanese Language improvement.
