    Physical violence is never acceptable.

    Lol @ everyone saying they'd intervene when in real life they wouldn't do ****. To be honest, I wouldn't do anything because men are stronger than women. Gender equality has gone so far that we've forgotten to apply our own common sense.

    Someone with a past of being abused might not be emotionally capable to defend themselves
    I can understand that, if you were being abused by your mother, or sister, or aunt. But if you're willing to take abuse from your girlfriend, there's something wrong there - I can't restore some poor man's self esteem by intervening on the streets on one occasion.

    Then again, I feel largely the same about women who stay in abusive relationships, I don't see why they can't just leave. Maybe I'm a prick after all.

    **** yeah I'd step in.

    My cousin is gay and not long after she came out (and half the family cut her off) her girlfriend began abusing her. Barely anyone believed her because ten years ago domestic abuse amongst LGBT couples was something no one has ever heard of or was sure existed. I remember people saying "women aren't capable of domestic abuse." Whenever it was brought up and it scared me so much because so many men are bound to be keeping quiet about domestic abuse from female partners out of fear of being called "pussies".

    The patriarchy hurts us all at the end of the day

    Lesbian relationships have the highest incidence of domestic abuse per couple, yet that's somehow the fault of the patriachy?!

    no i'd take out my feminism flag and chant UGO GIRL
    Just because she's a woman? Even as a girl I am disgusted by the double standards people have. If a man were to act in that way towards a woman, it's considered atrocious, but if a woman does that to a man then it's acceptable to cheer her on? Even if he turns out to be an awful person, she should not be beating him up and threatening him.

    The problem is that they would actually do that then campaign for shelters for women and portraying all men as abusive.

    I would rush in and try to incapacitate the man as quickly as possible. A pre mediated defence of the matriarchy

    I mean the stereotype that a women "isn't capable" of hurting anyone (Male or female) because we are seen as "loving" and "gentle" when of course some women are the total opposite of that. I mean that the patriarchy is responsible for that stereotype (and many, many others)
