    Question Women of DP - I ask you

    If you haul off and hit a person (female OR male) do you expect to be hit back?

    If you push and shove a person, do you expect to be pushed and/or shoved back?

    These ^ are extreme cases, but I want to know AS A WOMAN, if you take part is what I'd call 'risky aggressive behavior' do you expect to be met with the same... or do you believe your gender excuses you from consequences?

    Neither. I don't think a female should escape consequences, but since it isn't possible for women to have the upper body strength that men have, men should not shove, push or hit back because the chances of causing injury to the woman are so much higher. And no, a man is not a wimp for not hitting a woman who has hit him, he's a man who chooses brain over brawn. It really is one of those lifestyle choices.

    And if she rightly gets arrested for assault, she'll have earned those consequences.

    I find it funny that there are a handful of people who are women here, yet we already have a vote of 7 'gender' excuses.

    Not a woman, but I personally believe in the concept of proportionate response. If someone gets physical with me, my reaction depends on the threat the person represents. Strength, training, presence of weapon and aggressiveness are all important factors. I see no moral difference between a man or a woman of equal danger to me.

    The results of the poll do not shock me. I've always said that if you step up like a man and throw a punch like a man, you should take a punch like a man.

    Those 7 people that TGND referenced to in the poll as to why any concept of "gender equality" is bull. People who vote yes are the true proponents of equality.

    Re: Women of DP - I ask you

    I voted yes and I'm having a hard time believing that other women here are the ones voting "no". I'm sure some are.. but 7? Gimme a break.

    If I ball up my fist and dot some guys eye, I fully do that with the thought that he may very well ball up his fist and lay me out. Sorry, but that's how it goes.

    Just interjecting -- the rule is that a man should never strike a lady. Not all women are ladies. Men should assume that a woman is a lady, but if she shows that she is not, all bets are off.

    Yeah, I'm not talking about a guy walking up to a woman and beating the holy hell out of her.. I'm talking about a woman who starts an aggressive action against a male (OR female, for that matter).

    A friend of mine (male) had his girlfriend beat the living tar out of him and he didn't raise a finger.. I don't think I'd make a very good man, because I would have laid her out.

    I'll let my friend who is a female professional boxer, heavyweight, know that it's not possible for her to be able to kick a man's ass.
