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.

Yes, judge people by merit, but take a look at this video on Youtube.

I'm far from one who thinks women cannot be dangerous. The worst beatings
I've ever seen were done by women. Not to mention two of the toughest and
most dangerous martial arts teachers were women, both of whom would get
annoyed with me holding back against them and kicked the shit out of me
until I started fighting like I meant it. As a rule, I won't attack someone
unless they're a threat to me or bystanders, but once that line is crossed,
gender falls below the level of threat they pose when it comes to my
calculus on how much violence I employ.

You can't just say, in a debate of logic, that we have to seriously set
aside facts and statistics for the sake of what YOU specifically perceive
and "feel" is wrong. When you are debating logic and reason you don't "set
aside" the facts and rationalize with emotion. And with your argument of
"equality" between men and women, it simply doesn't work. Just as you say
you can't generalize everyone, YOU can't just generalize men and women as
the same assets in the work place. For example, lets say you hire a woman
and a man to be bricklayers. A physical job laying bricks and pouring
concrete. The women who apply for the job cannot lift the bricks while the
men could. But the employer has to hire the women because not doing so
would be "sexist". So the employer is forced to put all the men on bricks
and all women on concrete because the women could not physically handle the
bricks. Ultimately, the men were handed the hard work and the women, the
easier work. But the employer then pays both the men and women equal pay.
Because doing otherwise would be "sexist" according to you right? But is
this really fair and equal? No...no its not. Its bullshit but THAT is the
kind of shit people and employers have to put up with all over the country.
You want to talk about playing the victim card? Nonwhites and women take
the grand prize. You can't even call a prostitute a slut anymore without
being called a misogynist and you can't criticize a black president's
policies because you'll be called a racist.

Women are either equal or they're not. People can't say "Women must be
equal to men, but a man can never lay his hands on a woman in any
circumstance" That's not equality. That's special treatment.

I think saying you can't punch women is sexist. Assault on females is
weird. I think both are equal and I punch them equally as hard either way

What you're advocating is a sort of feminism though.

Sexual dimorphism. Its why the physical requirements in the US armed
forces are different according to gender. Its fact. Men have by default
higher muscle mass, efficiency, and density. I do however believe in equal
rights. Do not hit someone unless you are defending yourself from assault.
Gender should not be part of the issue.

While I don't strictly agree in just dismissing statistics.. I do agree
that not all cases are created equal and statistics are easily
misrepresented or manipulated. Your point that the "average" woman being
weaker than the "average" man clearly does not mean that all women are
weaker then all men is exactly right.

Also this whole notion that "you can't hit women because they are weaker"
is inherently flawed. All men are not equally strong either. I'm probably a
little bit stronger than "average", would it be inherently wrong for me to
*ever* hit a below "average" guy? If I sufficiently provoked some
Scandinavian Strongman would he be morally bankrupt to pummel me into the
dirt? Most people would probably say those scenarios would perfectly fine
if their standard for "provocation" was met. At most they would probably
say it depends on the situation. But when you talk about women, very few
will even make that concession of "it depends." At least in theory, what
people say and what they actually do when placed in a situation is not
always the same.

Personally, I was raised to never strike a woman. And I don't disagree with
that. But I believe there are some cases where a woman deserves it. Though
typically I would place this line where the woman is being physically
aggressive to a point where she has become a threat to yourself or someone
around you.

Though honestly some women really like to test a man's patience, and if
push comes to shove I might argue that someone screaming in your ear as
loud as possible can be physically painful, too. lol

I disagree with the way you argue things. You attempt to dispute the fact
that men and women are different, and they obviously are, or you wouldn't
have gender-separate Olympics. The proper argument is that if a physically
weaker person uses force against a physically stronger person, it is
perfectly fine for the physically stronger person to retaliate, regardless
of the fact that the weaker person happens to be female. If she's manly
enough to attack, she's manly enough to be punched in the face.

Very good video. For the record, I'm an office worker and I'm pretty damn
muscly. I love the gym :)
Interestingly, several of the ladies in my team at work have recently
started getting into the gym and exercising and whatnot. And a couple of
them have talked to me about how they actually really enjoy lifting weights
and love how they look when their muscles are good and pumped. I think
that's awesome (I lend them all my books on bodybuilding). I think muscle
can be incredibly sexy on a woman. I like a woman who looks strong and
sturdy, who could handle herself with anything physical.

Muscular women not seen as attractive? Pfft screw biological imperatives,
it must be "society" that brainwashes people. Btw, does it work the same
way for men? Have women been "socialised" into believing Ryan Gosling to be
more attractive than you're hairy uncle with his beer belly and his arms
that can only lift a remote control?

Think muscular women aren't feminine or beautiful?

Another problem is that if a women were to pick on a man people would just
laugh at him but the other way round people would be protecting the women
and having a go at the man.

I have personally seen women knockout men fortunately these women I know
and are friends of mine and to my own disbelief I have witnessed with my
own eyes watch them knockout dudes at bars. So sorry but if any females
want to talk like a man walk like a man fight like a man they deserve to be
hit like a man. I don't believe in hitting women but I am NOT about to
allow women to hit me

Completely agree Skal. I prefer to just go with the standard that I will do
my best not to fight anyone who is significantly weaker than me. I'm not a
big guy or anything so this doesn't actually encompass many people, but
still I find it to be a much better moral ground to take than "I don't hit
women ever I am a gentleman".

I of course would prefer never to harm anyone, but that's not always

If a woman punches you, punch her back.

Muscular women ugly? Bull. I tend to never condone to societal norms in
regards to beauty standards and I say that muscular women can too be very
beautiful. Same with chubby women, or just the average body type. Hell, I
like high fantasy so much is since there are loads of female characters who
are actively taking part in frontline combat, and to get into that kind of
shape these women HAVE to have some degrees of above average musculature.
And you know what? A woman's beauty doesn't just stem from how smooth their
legs are of how big their breasts are and how long their hair is.
