    Tricky situation. Sure the girl may deserve it but it's still ethically wrong for a male to hit a female. She may have been having a random outburst and physical violence was something that just popped into her head at the heated point in the argument. Of course i am not saying that what she did was right or acceptable but maybe putting yourself in her shoes and what the fight was actually about, could change your outlook on the situation.
    I guess my bottom line is, that a male hitting a female is not ok in any situation.
    So again, a lack of emotional control should be excused?

    No I didn't.
    Yes, yes, very philosophical. Unfortunately that doesn't really work on a practical everyday basis such as this. Also, if you really believed that you wouldn't have pounced on the "implication" of it being ok for people who can't control themselves to hit others.
    Yes it does. Right and wrong don't exist in life, everybody knows that.

    There is a difference between guys and girls though.
    If I hit my boyfriend, I doubt he'd even flinch, if he hit me I'd probably fall to the ground.

    Anyway I don't think it would be acceptable, I don't think it would be acceptable if it was a guy that hit him either. An eye for an eye isn't the way to go.
    So why is self-defence bad? You and others in this thread ungentlemanly, but it's you who lack humanity if you think that people should not have dignity.

    I presume all of you in real life don't control your emotions well, and lash out whenever something bothers you. It's probably just projection.

    Call me old fashioned but a man should NEVER hit a woman regardless of the situation. by all means complain, prosicute or whatever but its not right to hit a female regardless of what they've done.
    Agree with this completely, I just think it's morally wrong :/

    A "large" girl once punched me outside a club (Pozition in "Hullywood"). How we laughed.

    I'd just push her so hard that she'd fall over, especially if she was tottering around in high heels... or maybe kick her in the shins. Spitting in her face could be an alternative.

    If I was having an argument with someone though I wouldn't stand inches away from their face (seems stupid, no?) - so the likelihood of me being slapped/punched would be pretty low. If they kept approaching me with the intention of slapping me, the chances are they would receive a nice tight slap back in the same region of the body which they hit me.

    I think that seems fair.

    Nothing wrong with slapping a ***** about a bit if she deserves it.

    Unless she's actually a physical threat to his life, it's not right for a man to hit a woman.

    It's not really self defence though, the OP said she ran away after (I think I haven't read it since yesterday) Fair enough if you actually have to defend yourself!

    Also that's totally true, if someone hit me I'd hit them right back, but I don't think it's right
