    Shouldn't be acceptable for either, only time it's OK to hit another person is in self defense or protecting someone else
    This.

    I'm not going to hit a woman if she hurts my feelings because it's a ridiculous and emotional knee-jerk action to take, but if she hit me twice (everyone gets a free one) with any intent of causing me pain then I'd hit her back. No doubt she'd have a shocked look on her face and be incredulous at my actions, but what do you expect? For me to roll over and accept physical violence from someone simply because they have a vagina? How absurd..
    And this. If women want equal rights, be prepared to be treated with the same protocol as other men.

    Exactly! Nobody should slap anybody, ever! End of story, assault is assault no mater who does it and it is always wrong, both moraly and legaly!!

    Let's be honest here: if a man slapped me, it would hurt much much more than if I slapped him.
    He's said slap though not hit. When you slap someone you aren't using full force, so the fact that a man probably does have a greater absolute strength than you doesn't mean he's going to us it, like would be implied with a punch.


    Meh, I'd say you can as much as you can slap a man or a child. The problem is you've introduced violence into a situation in which is was not previously present against someone.

    I don't think it's acceptable any way around, whether girl-to-girl, guy-to-girl, girl-to-guy, or guy-to-guy.

    In my eyes, if she hits you then you can hit back. But seeing as though it looks like everyone's following the gender roles I'll say: the man is supposed to be strong and able to cope with emotions so he shouldn't be overcome with emotions.

    This is one of my problems with society, and no, I don't think it should be acceptable, it spreads a pretty toxic message to young girls who grow up into young women who believe they can slap people with no consequences. Nobody should be slapping each other. That said I don't know any women in real life who slap men for hurting their feelings

    Depends on what woman your hitting, if she is generally touchy-feeling and very emotional, just let her slap you because it will make her feel better. Even if it does 'hurt'.
    You want me to entertain physical abuse because it'll make her feel better? Interesting. And you would feel exactly the same way if a touchy-feely man was hitting a woman? After all, it'd make him feel better so it's totally condonable, right?

    Utter bull****.

    Your assuming they would do it as hard as they can. They probably wouldn't.

    Your utter bull for reading my statement incorrectly. I said, if she hits you and you know she is weak and you are strong, you should not hit her back. I personally wouldn't hit back a touchy-feely man because I've got to be the bigger person. How hard is that to understand? I'm not saying people should hit each other, I'm saying people should control themselves. Including women. That's a childish thing to say 'if she can hit, I can hit'.
    Or do you think hitting her back will solve the problem?

    But that's sexist against women. It implies women are dominated by their emotions and can't help themselves and that they are weaker than men so they can't handle being hit by one (both false, stereotypical and patronizing views obviously that shouldn't still be around in this day and age).
    Yes, but that's not going to convince an opportunistic little madam to abstain from benefitting from such an arrangement, while simultaneously wanting equality when (and only when) it benefits her, and claiming anyone who sees through her is a misogynist pig. Yes, I've seen that in action.

    Also, put it this way: The kind of woman who really is dominated by her emotions and lacks self-control is likely to personally benefit from views which negatively stereotype all other women like that. Rather than having herself singled out for being obnoxious, she gets to claim that she's just a typical woman and if you have a problem with it you're an evil woman-hating pig. Yes, I've seen that as well, and people generally fall for the woman's lies and manipulations every time.

    Slapping a woman is generally disproportionately punished by society. If a woman really deserves to be punished (such as the kind of madam I described), there are more efficient methods which carry less negative consequences. One effective method is simply to draw her close and pretend you like her, sizing up her insecurities to calibrate your false flattery, before concisely and bluntly telling her exactly what you think of her, poking her insecurities as hard as you can, then completely cutting her off. That hurts much more than a slap and is much less likely to get the man demonised than resorting to (even mild) physical force.

    That is like trying to justify the player/**** double standard by saying a woman on a night out can get sex much easier than a man.

    if I'm not allowed to hit a woman for hitting me, then I'm sorry, but what exactly is the difference between a woman and an oversized child? if women are supposed to be *this* pathetic then that's honestly great for my self-esteem as a man in this society - I feel very respected for being above women in that sense :lol: I'll be telling the females on this website that it's their bed time in a few minutes too in this case

    It isn't acceptable for man a to do it. But is for a woman. Just one of those things.
    Who cares what's acceptable or not? If it's right just do it. If a woman cheats she deserves a slap.
