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 agree with the above comments, I dont like violence, but if somebody attacks me then I will defend myself.

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.

I think this sums things up pretty well.

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'm disappointed in the Playground at the moment. Eleven posts...Eleven posts and not one donkey punch reference?

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.
