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'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.

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.

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

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

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

I see what you are saying but I wouldn't be able to hit a girl, its just
me. I was raised to never hit a girl and I will always be like that.

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
is BS!
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.

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?

Now, when I watched a video to the end(sorry), you are completely right. I
remembered, from a report some years back, when a male safe house was
opened in Belgrade, about man, normal guy, who was frequently beaten upon
by his wife. Then they interviewed his wife, an it was huge, mountain of a
woman, who worked as a butcher. Everybody laughed and practicaly no steps
were taken. If it was other way around man would end up in jail.

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

a physically hostile woman has as much right to be punched in the face as a
physically hostile man
