Okay, I am not even sure if this is thread worthy but I was hijacking the hitting women thread.
It has been mentioned that some women today seem to be okay with hitting men. They will shove, slap, punch and even spit on men and either think the guy won't and shouldn't do anything, or they think they can go toe-to-toe with a man.
I don't agree with any of that.
What I am asking is what is the cause of this violent behavior from some women? I don't know if it is the media, I wonder if it is that some men seem less manly. Is the combination of this less than manly male and the media causing women to take advantage and become aggressive and violent, or is it that the women are frustrated and are pushing these men to step up and be men?
I do not mean to equate violence with manliness. I love a strong man but I would not put up with a man who hit me.
Men are frustrated and women are frustrated as things seem so unclear in regards to behavior.
I hear the message from some men that they feel as if women are taking advantage of the "do not hit women" and then going to the legal system to punish men.
I also know of women who encounter men who treat them badly and abuse them and then will also use the legal system and the social system to get back. Many of these men are great at emotional and mental abuse.
So what is the cause and is there a way to change what is happening?
