If a girl hits a guy, should he or should he not hit her back?

if a girl were to be bold enough to try and fight a guy, and tried to harm him, is he wrong for hitting her back? like if they got in a serious fight is he wrong if he ends up beating her up? btw I'm talking about 2 kids at my school.

If a girl hit me I would just say "Oh yeah, I like when you're rough with me".

Girl can't hurt a guy as bad as he can hurt her. He should just restrain her. I wouldn't call trying to fight someone "bold". More "inappropriate" or "childish".

In most cases even at full force, a girl could never do the same damage as a boy. It wouldn't be a fair fight. So, he shouldn't let her bait him.

But wow, what in the world would cause her to call him out in the first place? I feel old for saying this, but maybe the school counselor should be informed.

The girl could give all the power she can give and the boy can give that amount. Like a push or something.

Nobody should be hitting anybody but if she were attacking, id be defending myseof even if that ment hitting back. If you want to play rough, expect to get hurt.

A girl shouldn't hit a guy and a guy shouldn't hit a girl , but you better believe if a girl has a knife or a gun pointed at me she is going to get clocked . As for girls being in football I'm not going to take it easy on her if she can't take it then there's the door equal rights for women right therefore I will treat her as an equal and not like a helpless damsel in distress .(ok I might be a little gentle (; . To answer the fighting part if she's whaling on me I will grab her , but I defiantly would not hit her .

Hi truckerlady. I missed the part in the description that these are children. I usually do miss some details because the type is so small. The world is entirely different then when U was growing up and I was disturbed by the first member's post (Ask needs to revise app so you can see answers while typing a comment - wishful thinking. With all the bullying and 'hate' in this world, let's teach children to beat each other up to a pulp. Shaking my head. Thanks for your comment. I always appreciate you and your feedback.

No a man should defend himself but should not fight back in my opinion anyway.

Are we talking about during school, or in the zombie apocalypse? Because if laws are still being enforced, I go with NOT retaliating, but hauling her asterisk up on battery charges.

Yes he is very wrong for hitting her back. Whether it be a male or female who attacked him, it's wrong to retaliate. You're supposed to be the bigger person, remember? They can do what it takes to defend themselves, but hitting them back (and if they have no weapons) is definitely leaning towards being offensive.

I say if it isn't your wife/girlfriend or family member and they are hitting you/trying to cause you harm defend yourself and hit back. Regardless of what gender they are. Nobody should have to be a defenseless victim who just takes a beating. If a woman is man enough to punch a guy she's man enough to be punched back. I for one won't stand there and get attacked without defending myself.

I'm of the mindset that if a girl has a big enough pair to throw the first punch, then she opened herself up to receive one. That's just my motto though. I know a lot of guys who just couldn't bring themselves to do it, and I understand that. Course, I don't go around throwing punches...first.

Everyone is forgetting the golden rule too, "Treat others the way you want to be treated". She gives a punch, the victim has the right to give a punch too.

If you hit someone, you open yourself up to get hit back. Reflex can kick in before common sense has a chance to.

If somebody hits me with intent to do harm, I'm swinging back. At that point, courtesy is out the window. Gender is now irrelevant.

I think if a girl attacks a guy then she's open to whatever she gets. Having said that though - I think that if he knows that he is stronger than she is, then he should only use as much force as necessary to defend himself. So it should never be a matter of him beating her senseless or anything.

In reality though, the best course of action would be to just walk away (this is true for any fight... guys or girls). Fighting rarely solves anything, and from a legal standpoint, both could end up getting in trouble.

I beat up a guy once, he was several years older than me. It was so much fun!!!! He did something before though, which got me mad. And good thing his friends didn't let him get his hands on me afterwarrds or else he would have like, ouch, yeah.

Anyway, point is, I think that if a girl is seriously trying to harm him and he is getting harmed than he should react in someway, maybe a bit more gently. But if she's just fooling around and messin with him he shoud just let it go.

I am a gentleman, I will never fight a lady, however the moment she hits me she is no longer a lady. Thus I will end the fight as I would normally, quickly and only using blows as a last resort, with the end-goal being a non permanent result.

Everyone has the right to defend themselves from violence with reasonable force. The gender of the attacker is irrelevant. However, reasonable force is dependant on the amount of force required to prevent harm to yourself. Often, this will be less if the attacker is female, but not in all cases. Lots of women are more capable of doing harm than the average male.

If it's clear that the boy could easily have avoided harm without hitting the girl, then to hit her was wrong. Otherwise, it's justifiable.

Those that say hitting a girl is categorically wrong are seeing only black and white. What if the boy in question was severely disabled and physically vulnerable, and the girl was a 200 pound violent sociopath?

I will go along with the law on this one: He can hit her back. If you're man enough to hit a man, then you're man enough to get hit by a man.
