This has no relevance to my life, I just want to know what my fellow PGers think.

I know most situations the response relies mainly on the circumstance. But lets just say it's no one you know, and the female starts assaulting the male with deadly intent. Do you believe it's ok for him to fight back just as hard? Or as a male, is it his prerogative to protect the "weaker" sex from harm?

Ah, no. I am not a woman beater, but if someone punches me in the face or pulls a weapon with intent on doing me harm, It makes no difference if it is a man or a woman. I will fight back with equal force.

Just as you said if the female is assaulting the male with deadly intent all bets are off.

If a girl came at me with absolute deadly intent without a weapon and I just plain couldnt just leave the situation I would use just enough force to restrain her.


I would just hold her down until she agreed to calm down. No hitting just restraining.


Now with a deadly weapon that changes the ball game. This person is trying to END your life. I will treat it as such and come at her guns ablazing metaphorically speaking of course

I'm actually against violence, outside of sports. I think people should just do what they need to do to restrain someone and self-defend in a 'reasonable way'.

If a girl goes nuts and slaps or punches some guy, it doesn't give him automatic license to KO her in the street. Obviously (in most cases), a guy can do a lot more damage in a physical fight, unless maybe your girlfriend is Ronda Roussey.

I just believe in settling the violence down rather than escalating it, where possible.

If you need to defend yourself though and we're talking weapons and life-threatening situations, then all bets are off - a guy should just what he needs to do to feel safe and get things under control again.

If you think about things from a legal standpoint, if you end up disarming a 100lb female with a knife and then proceed to beat her senseless, things probably aren't going to end up in your favour anyway. The key should just be to do what's necessary to disarm and restrain her and then call the cops.

I think every situation will allow a certain element of 'reasonable force' as long as it doesn't descend into 'gratuitous violence' and as long as people generally stick to that, there shouldn't be any problems - legally or morally.

in the TS example, the bitch needs to learn her place. If she is some drunk belligerent wackjob hitting and kicking you, then just restraining her will suffice. I don't condone hitting a woman, but there are specific examples where I'm a little more lenient.

But of course the other side of the coin is that they want to be treated as equals, so have at her

I am a violent shit head....hit me once, I will hit you twice....attempt to assault me with a deadly weapon and I will kill you.....race, religion, and gender makes absolutely no difference to me. I always escalate it a step to ensure victoey over my opponents.

I don't think being weak gives you license to physically assault someone with impunity, and frankly I think women who believe they have the right to attack men, slap them, whatever, just because they're women, should probably be taught a lesson.

Would I actually cold cock a chick who attacked me? Almost definitely not, I would most likely restrain her, but I would have no moral qualms with a man who decided that if a woman can punch them in the face, that they are allowed to return the favour.

Like I said I would probably exercise restraint and just get her under control, but if we're talking legality, I think it should be completely allowed to hit a woman who attacks you, even if you could just restrain her. You didn't ask to be put into a situation where you have to defend yourself, it shouldn't be incumbent upon you to show restraint in self-defense.

This female wanted to kill me once. Can I tell you about it? OK.

I was in the LBC, about 9 years ago. Just played a show with some friends. This girl was hanging out with us afterwards, asking us questions and shit. Things were cool, but she kept spitting uncomfortably close to my feet though. I said something to bring it to her attention. I forget what, because it was so long ago. Anyhow, I must have pissed her off, because next thing I know, she is going Wanderlei on my ass, coming forward just windmilling shots.

I'm blocking everything, one handed, just kind of having fun. Think Silva-Griffin, except I wasn't offering any offense. My head movement was on point. She got really frustrated by her inability to punch me in the face. Naturally, she went for the nut shot. I'm quick to check the leg kicks though, so I bring my knee up in front of my crotch, and the top of her foot just cracks on my knee. She limped away after that, and I just kind of felt bad. I don't know why, I guess it's just because I really do believe men shouldn't hit women. And even though she hurt herself attacking me, I still felt bad for her.... If she was actually landing on me though, I might go for the take down, a "Calm down woman!" bear hug, or just some form of restraint.

If we're talking about getting attacked with knives or other weaponry though, I will curbstomp a bitch.

Some women take advantage of the "guy code." They think they can get away with hitting a man because most men won't hit back.

With that said, I've had a female come at me back in high school but all I did was restrain her until someone stepped in but I wouldn't hesitate to defend myself if I feel she's trying to cause me serious harm.

I won't hit a woman but I have no problem taking her back and locking a body triangle in to let her know what's up. If she is attacking with a weapon though P$ said it best.

The only thing remotely close for me to hit a girl,Would be to spit in my face,I just find that to be one of the most disgusting and disrespectful things a person can do to another.

I'm not about hitting women but I will absolutely get the birch off me. I had a girl at a party sock me in the face and I pushed her so hard she did a flip. No punches were thrown by me but I got her away. I'm not gonna beat a girl down.....ever but you do need to protect yourself

No it's not. MMA is far from being representative of real life violence. It's a sport. When I see a fight in real life and someone is getting beat down, it makes me sick to my stomach. It's not the same thing at all. I completely agree with Rabi here.

The other day, a woman brushed up against me and startled me on the subway. Needless to say, she got a punch to the face. I think if we all try and little harder to punch more women in the face, they'll be less mouthy in the future with their feminist agenda. We get paid a dollar more an hour because its difficult to not pop a woman in the face in the workplace. You put enough makeup on anyway, who cares if you have a black eye.

I tried letting a chick hit me before and eventually I cracked her in the tit....she dropped and started crying.....I left her be and through the grape vine heard that she lactated for days. Serves her right IMO, and it's mad funny.

when i go to muay thai class, sometimes you get paired up with a woman to do some light sparring. Im always uncomfortable in these situations and i just dont have the heart to hit them in the face not even lightly. (even if they are legit kickboxers)
I usually just move around a bit and cop light punches in the face, if im feeling mean that day then i might kick her in the boob or something.

Whether woman like to hear this or not but they are the weaker gender... Majority of men are more powerful and stronger then woman. How can it be right to hit them, they shouldn't be hitting neither but if it does come down to it. Be the bigger person and walk away or hold her down and control her... Why would you want to get into a slugfest with a woman.. Some answers will Definitly define who some people truly are.

There's a distinct difference between two athletes mutually agreeing to test their skills against one another under a set of rules with dozens of safety protocols from medical clearance, to referees, to medics sitting cageside ready to examine anything as small as a cut to make sure it's not bleeding too much, and someone attacking an unwilling victim in the street out of anger.

In my experience, when most people refer to violence, they're usually referring to this definition:

"an unjust or unwarranted exertion of force or power, as against rights or laws"

Which is more than likely what Rabi meant.

There's a reason why in proffessional sports woman and men dont compete against one another. Different gender different strength different pain tolerance. It's just the way we evolved. And I agree I've been in many street fights in my life but I can stand doing them. I've only defended myself when I see others fighting it to
Makes me sick to my stomach, im always stepping in and stopping it. I love to compete in combat sports but that's a whole different world. One, where your chances of gettin killed are slim to none compare to fighting on concrete with no one there to stop someone from kicking their head in.

I'm sure all of us follow you man

But were talking about if a girl came at you with the intention to kill you with a weapon
