    Call the police first and try to intervene. Doesn't matter what's the reasoning behind but violence is an idiot's solution.

    Unless she has a good reason to be hitting him, I'd stop it
    What exaclty would count as good reason to initiate violence? Of course self-defense is another deal but this thread was about women abusing men.

    I'd intervene. I think men deserve not to get abused in the same sense women deserve not to.
    (Original post by arfah)
    Would intervene and try and stop the woman. But I'd call the police if she looked stronger than the guy/if she seemed mental or dangerous.

    if i knew the person then i would intervene, but if not i would call the police. its a two way thing
    happened to me recently on a bus. did nothing. I dont wana get hit. the two were clearly a crazy pair who were volatile..and I stuck opposite them.

    In reality its one of these things yeh just leave especially when its a girl hitting. no one in the bus did anything either

    If they were a couple she'd just found out he'd been banging her sister or beating their kids or something like that, I'd say he had it coming tbh

    I think the saddest part about this poll is how, at the time of me posting this, more women have said they don't/won't intervene with such a negative event in public. It's relatively saddenning because I am firnly against the use of violence anywhere and believe action should be taken to stop it, especially domestic violence. If a man hit a woman, I'm sure everyone would intervene and a few bystanders may call the police... But females hitting males is still a concern hidden under a blanket. Many people don't recognise it as a real issue, and it should be tackled at face value - regardless of gender...

    if it unlikely, it is also unlikely for me to worry what I would do !!
    Seeing the opposite is also rather unlikely. What would you do if a man was attacking a woman in public?

    But perhaps her anger was justified?



    But don't you think, even if it were abuse, the woman does less damage than a man would?
    If a man attacks a woman, it's the man's fault, if a woman attacks a man, it's the man's fault too. Seems fair.

    Untrue really, you can get weakling males (like me) and rather strong females and anyone can be trained to do damage in close combat. Depends on the individuals.

    As much as I think I'd like to help, I'd probably run away - I don't like seeing people fight.

    depends. if the women is obviously battering the man or if the man is clearly showing signs of pain then sure. in an opposite scenario ill probably help the woman no matter what,but thats because of the way the patriarchy has wired me

    yes the patriarchy both benefits and works against men

    down with the patriarchy

    The idea of patriarchy is male created and upheld by feminists, more so, in modern times. As we further our progress into a more equal society, certain kinds of feminism fight harder to try and enforce the idea of patriarchy, despite the fact that patriarchal societies are slowly dissolving as men and women are brought onto a more equal playing field. Ideally, patriarchy should not come into play in the issue of domestic violence. All domestic violence should be intervened with and prevented instead of it being conditional for one sex and unconditional for the other. That promotes inequality, and I seemed to think feminism was about gender equality :/

    female on male violence is a taboo subject. it is estimated that at least 40% of domestic violence is ladies attacking gentlemen ?

    Well I'd honestly wouldn't do anything unless it gets really bad then I'll defo call the police,
    but then again, a man is a lot stronger than a women, so he should be able to defend himself [NOT HIT HER BACK] but restrain her!

    Restrain is defend. It is well documented that men are regularly arrested for defending themselves from women.
