This is my commentary on the "bus driver uppercuts female passenger" story. The common norm that you may never hit a women no matter what may seem positive at first glance, but if we take a closer look it's just another form of sexism.
In fact it discriminates against both men and women: Men are portrayed as the aggressive, dangerous gender which must restrain its violent tendencies, while women are portrayed as weak and vulnerable.
Doesn't it make more sense to judge the individual situation and the actual people involved? What if a strongly built woman beats up a skinny guy? Shouldn't he be allowed to defend himself, or at least try to? Or what if the man and woman involved are about the same build and likely equally strong and fit?
Over-generalizing rules and categories just don't always work. Sexism and fanatical feminism are definitely not the right answer. True equality of all genders is what we need.
Yeah, but that's an issue of culture and socialization. I've often heard
people claim women are weaker and/or cannot fight because of inherent
biological differences, but it's mostly the societal gender roles.

Skall, do you agree that in sports many conditions are different for men
and women (for example weights of used equipment); based on the bullshit
fact that women are weaker, slower etc.? Or do you think it's a sexism
against men, disadvantiging men? Do you think in sports should be equal
conditions for both genders?

I'd say it is funny especially when women can just point at guy and just
say "rapist, child molester" and screw that man life. Here we go, feminism
is just one big lie.

What about romantic roles? Is it immoral to expect the male to propose
marriage or pay for the date? Genders shouldn't really be treated as
exactly the same.however, this whole "Don't hit women!" thing is very

Thing that irritates me is when people use statistics for singular events.
I am not the amorphous male, and the girl next to me is not the amorphous
female. If someone punches someone, it is not the
demographic punching the
demographic; it's Jack punching Paul.
People seem to ask in demographics, which is fine. It is easy to recognize
the the people by apparent traits, like "Why did the blondie punch the
black hair guy?' ease of communication. But when answering the question you
don't use statistics on hair colour to make a judgement. People dont hold
up banners about all the people with light hair being oppressed. Why did
Jack punch Paul? Who cares, it's they're problem. Does the punch become
worse if Jack was the taller one? or better if Paul cheats in videogames?
The question should be "Was Jack's punch a measured response?" and "Was
Paul being an arse?

Ive always been disappointed with this particular sexist dilemma , but if
they attack you , go ahead , fuck em up. But if you just get into an
argument with a weaker person , man or woman , try not to hit them but if
you need to go ahead. But nobody needs to have a fight unless someone
REAAAALLY has it coming and needs a bashing to sort them straight then go

well heres the problem with looking at strength lets say a man is huge like
300 pounds of pure muscle and a small 100 pound woman punches him. of
course hes at a advantage but she should have thought of that before she
attacked him. this also goes both ways if a small 100 pound man attacks a
300 pound pure muscle woman he should have thought of that before he
attacked her. it should be a simple matter of who started it . and whoever
started it is basically the one in the wrong and deserves what comes to
them. and let me clarify that started it means first to make contact in a
threatening or offensive manner such as a slap or again other form of
offensive contact. including sexually harrassing actions .

My only problem with this entire video is actually just something that I
had wished that you added. That would be the fact that physical strength
has little to do with fighting, being physically fit IS important, strength
arguably is not. My point is that saying that a woman (or women in general)
cannot defend themselves simply because they are not strong, or as strong
as a man, is sheer idiocy. Just because you are strong doesn't mean that
you can hold your own in a fight, by these peoples logic a woman can beat
me near to death and just because statistically men are supposedly stronger
than women I cannot retaliate? I agree with you Skallagrim, 100 percent.

In general I agree with you that resolving physical confrontations between
men and women should take into account any exceptions to the rule of men
generally being "stronger" than women, but the stereotype holds out pretty
well, and not only for extreme body builders (steroids actually often
lessens the difference there). The body design/composition of men and women
is different; women bruise more easily for example, due to having more
subcutaneous fat and less dense collagen in their skin than a similar male.
There are reasons for this from an anatomical design standpoint and there
are exceptions to this rule, but even a slim woman will generally bruise
easier than an overweight man. As far as muscle building, women have to
work a lot harder to get similar gains to a similarly aged male, but strong
is a subjective term to an extent (like you said). If a woman is trained to
defend herself, whether by means of a weapon, bodybuilding or martial arts,
or if she is facing a weaker male (perhaps unfit, younger, unsuspecting),
she can be "stronger" than a male. Thus the generalization does not always
hold true, and should be addressed in such cases.

Does it even matter if she is smaller and therefore "disadvantaged" in a
fight. It's irrelevant that would mean small people could get away with
hitting large people by virtue of the fact that if the large person fought
back that they would have the advantage. If someone tries to inflict
bodily harm on you then you should have the right to use reasonable
physical force to defend yourself regardless of how strong they are OR what
gender they are THEY are ultimately in the wrong and you shouldn't have to
suffer an assault simply because of your physical advantages

Sorry but if she deserved it, she deserved it. Bones are bones regardless
of gender they can take a pounding especially the skull.

will never punch a lady, but will kick a bitches if it needed. BTW equality
normal people don't want to be treated equally, they want to be treated
better than others. why do you think we need friends and families? BECAUSE
they treated us different than they treat others! Bias makes people to be
people. It is a sin to treated different people the same.equality is not
fair, giving what people deserve to have is fair. like the situation you
have here. Female or not , if she or he deserve that punch, then she or he
should be punched.There should not be any focus on the gender.

My girlfriend is around 120 pound 5,9 I'm 210 pounds in muscle 6 foot.
Hitting woman should always be the last opinion. Unless of course she has a
knife or a gun. Or she a female body builder if she's doesn't have a weapon
or above avg female strength then I won't punch her. I'll hold her down but
I won't fight. Men are strong that's a scientific fact

You're right that women and men should be treated based on their individual
characteristics, rather than the gender group they're assigned to, but you
have to be purposely ignorant to believe culture is the main factor which
causes physical differences between the genders. I mean, look at any top
athletes in any sport... the women can barely compete with the men and that
it's not just strength...men are more agile and have quicker reaction times
too. Then there's the shape/frame of the body... men are lankier, have
thicker bones and muscle and fat are structured for physical labour. This
should all be pretty obvious to anyone with eyes and common sense.
Do you also think silverback gorilla male are 3 times heavier than the
females because of cultural influences? Men and women are
different...shit, so are human races/ethnicities... so are people of one
gender within a race group... this should have no impact in whether or not
we have rights. Everyone's equal... a bigger person shouldn't abstain from
defending themselves when attacked... any blunt object or fighting skill
can swing the advantage towards the smaller person.
Groups can be inherently different...it doesn't imply we should treat them
