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.

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.

this video made me like you :)
not because the guy hit a woman, but because you aren't blinded by the cpt
saveahoe culture, and you are a fair person.

Eh scientifically it is true that by default men have more muscle mass than
women.
Men are born with much more testosterone than women, and women are born
with much more estrogen than testosterone. Testosterone naturally builds
muscle.

I like the point you bring up that it is BS that a skinny office male is
stronger (more muscly I suppose) than a woman who works on a farm or other
demanding labor job everyday. But, if you take a man and a woman and they
are the same height, width, basically the same physiology, the same job,
etc.., the man will always have more muscle mass than the woman because men
are born with much more testosterone.

I'm not being sexist, intentionally. I believe that men and women should be
born and treated equal. Men and women are physiologically different, but
yeah.

I love the point and the summary at the end. Its so true.

4.38 now and what you are saying is that a Scientific fact is annoying to
you and you disagree with it. sigh! women are weaker then men! get over
it. in this case it was a Young hoodrat woman, vs a old man driveing a
bus, and he still one punched her! what that video actually shows is
equality in action, if a man talks that way to another man and slaps him,
he would expect those fists any time. but women think equality is them
talking like that,treating others like shit, and then hideing behind "but
im a weak woman" when someone puts them in their place!

i think what Skallagrim meant by what he said was he thinks that men and
women in this situation and others like it should be treated on the same
"playing field" so to speak. regardless if its a man and woman arguing, if
a woman is being unreasonable, rude or endangering your life do what is
necessary. And by necessary i mean reasonable action, not punching her in
the face cause she looked at u the wrong way(this goes both ways btw). TBH
the argument of strength can only go up to a certain point..can a woman
gouge out eyeballs? can she kik a guys balls ofc she can, a 10 year old can
do it, the way people put the strength difference is as if both people are
gonna have a fight to the death, fighting tooth and claw..sry for the brick

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

I'm pretty sure women are physically less strong than males, genetically.
But i still think the point remains the same, if you are going to hit
someone the victim has every right to self defense and hit back. Man or
woman weak or strong (although if a tiny 50kg girl was punching a huge
bodybuilder i would hope that he would hold back his full force but that is
the same reguardless of gender)

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.

Women dont want equality, they want equal opportunities without equal
responsibilities.

I think you may be missing the point, but again that may be me missing the
pint (I don't know). In my opinion (about your story) the woman had it
coming, the man is DRIVING a vehicle filled with people, IF he lost control
and hit a car a punch to the face might have been the best situation all
the people could have gone for. About the thing that we should look for the
"stronger one", I'd say don't fight in the first place unless you are ready
for the consequences don't fight in the first place. I prefer if no one
fights normally but I guess its not everyone's "Ideal way" of dealing with
a situation....

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.

If it's true at all, the very, very utmost limit of physical strength for
everyone leans toward men very insignificantly. That's just genetics
though. Just a stupid little useless fact. :D

I will admit that it pisses wen the situation arises were a female is
beating on a male then the male strikes back and the female reacts with the
mentality that im a woman u cant hit me like realy wat do they think will
happen now i also think every situation has a different way to absolve it
but seriously are men just expected to be beat on just cuz its a female yea
u could walk away but lets face it its not always that simple idk if this
makes sense
Chr12k6 (9 дн. назад)
well, evwen if he is much stonger, whats the point? if you see that someone
could beat the hell out of you and you still try to hurt that person and
expect that he does nothing about it you shhould in my opinion learn the
lesson the hard way

i always hated how people said it is against the law to hit a woman. its
illegal to assault anyone, no matter the race, gender, etc. the only thing
that says anything about respecting women and treating them better is the
knight's code of chivalry and the oaths of the Knights Templar. i do
believe that you shouldn't attack a woman, but i also believe in having a
sense of self-preservation and defending your well-being.

Fighting ability is not just about strength. For example I was much
stronger than my exgf but she had two black belts and could still toss me
around.
