How come it's the case when a Women hits a man it's respected and considered justice in the right context, yet say if the man hits the Woman back not only will other Men likely beat him up, he will be called a 'Women Beater' and lose his social reputation? The same if a Man hits a Woman first yet in an extreme case. Also why is it if a man commits Assault on a Woman he is likely to serve a longer sentence then a Woman counterpart.

Some days I feel like I'm the only real 'Feminist', I believe in equal rights between Men and Women yet it seems Feminists focus entirely on Women's rights rather then Men's too, also why is it called 'Feminism', is that not biased to 'Fe' - males? Surely it should just be called Gender Equality?

The above happens because women are more valuable on an evolutionary level than men are therefore people hold them in higher esteem and try to appease them. It's why you barely ever hear about the incredibly high male suicide rate (4:1 compared to women) and yet you can be certain that if 4 women killed themselves for every man it would be a national emergency.

What idiotic thing to say.
I practice Krav Maga twice a week and train with female partners.I can tell you right know a woman hitting a man can cause lots of damage.The idea it doesn't is a idiotic sexist comment.
For example,a punch to your throat can easily kill you,even from a small woman.

A person hitting anyone can do lots of damage.

I am a man and would barely be able to hurt a fly and there are plenty of women who could hit me and do a great deal of damage.

But hitting nobody would be the best.

perhaps there are exceptions.

but its much easier for an 80kg man to defend himself against an angry 55kg woman vs the other way around.

most domestic abuse is carried out by men

i am a feminist and i know lots of feminists. i've never heard of anyone approving hitting anyone, so where are we getting these statistics? :confused: i've also never heard that sentencing was based on sex, i mean besides hearsay on TSR.

I don't approve of it either, I never said that. Btw here's a whole study full of statistics: http://www.parity-uk.org/Briefing/Me...SfComplete.pdf

Only by not much of a margin. 60/40%
and worth noting that in nonreciprocal violence where the partner doesn't hit back , 70% of the time it is the woman doing the hitting.

simple: its sexist. the same left wing dicks who lecture us about equality of the sexes also expect women to be treated favourably in such circumstances.

Asymmetries of power, and therefore more must be done to protect the less powerful.

I must let my friend know. He spent a week in a high dependency unit after a woman half his weight hit him on the head with a high heel shoe in a taxi rank.

Yep. There are some girls in my Muay Thai classes, I'm 6'2'' 200+lbs and there are a couple of girls who can knock me back when I'm holding a kickpad for them.
