So when is it acceptable to punch a woman in the face?
Reason #1: When the woman isn't acting like a woman.
Let me save you the trouble
"Blah Blah, she is weak, you are strong"
"Yada, Yada, there is never any reason for a man to hit a woman"
"Hurr Blur, if you were a real man you could walk away inside the elevator"
For the record, I don't advocate hitting women. I think in a vast majority of the cases if you would just leave the problems won't happen. But the thing that causes me to respond to these post are people who deal in absolutes.
No man should hit a woman, and no woman should hit a man. Period end of. Every man that hits a woman isn't Ike Turner. Every woman that hits a man isn't (insert small woman name whom I can't think of right now).
This is not a black and white issue. I don't know why you guys keep trying to make it one. The reason Goodell gave him a 2 game suspension was because he saw the "complete picture". The reason he changed his stance is because of the "public outrage".
If a guy 110lbs came up to a 220lb guys face...started talking smack, starting getting in his way. Started finger pointing, slapping, biting and kicking him then the bigger guy knocks him out everyone here would say that's what should have happened. He should have know better than to start something like that with someone who could kick his ass. It's the same for women. They should be respected, cherished and protected. However they should not be given absolute freedom to do whatever to the man. They needle is starting to go to far the other way.
