    I'd intervene, but at the same time, I want to keep the hair on my head. Maybe wear a helmet before I do so

    Unless she has a good reason to be hitting him, I'd stop it

    I'd intervene. I think men deserve not to get abused in the same sense women deserve not to.

    I'd live stream the event worldwide and make sure that ***** is hounded for the rest of her life, wherever she goes.
    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?

    Yes but a man should exercise some restraint depending on the situation at hand. If a female is hitting and abusing a male then only the force needed for defence and to fend them off should be used. If a female is firing a live weapon at a male (not by any case saying it happens regularly) then clearly more force is required to neutralise the threat.

    Furthermore I tend to take Whoopi Goldbergs stance on things; if a woman hits a man they cannot be expected to not receive some kind of backlash from it. The full opinion on the matter can be seen here

    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.

    It would honestly depend on where I was and the time, if it was a popular area where someone could come and help me out. I'd probably watch for a while from a distance to see if it died down or escalated to make sure that I'd be safe. I'd probably have my phone recording or ready to call 999 too just in case anything happened to me. I'd try to calm the situation down. I wouldn't want to step in to try and help and then be attacked by one or both of them.
