Okay, so first of all I'm not talking about drunk guys beating on their wives for no particular reason because that's clearly not right. Also I'm talking about all ages, including girls and boys. I'm just wondering what all of you think about this sort of thing. I hear alot of stuff about "Oh it's never okay to hit a girl" but I don't agree. If a girl is physically attacking you, in my opinion she should be hit back. Now I'm not talking about if she slaps you across the face but if she like goes off on you and seriously tries to hurt you. I've never punched a girl in the face but when I was in elementary school, this girl attacked me and started scratching up my face. I wasn't going to do anything but no one was stopping it so I grabbed her by the wrist and threw her on the ground. Suprisingly, I wasn't criticized much about this. Another experience I had was in middle school where this huge girl punched me in the back of the head twice because she thought I was talking about her behind her back. I wanted to hit her but my friends held me back. I mean, women pushed for equal rights and yet we still can't hit them if they attack us? What?
