WAYYY OT: Curiosity Strikes
For the record, just so I can point it out as the first thing I said in this thread. Under normal circumstances I do not believe in ever striking a woman, unless you're another woman, of course. So that said, I have a question about when is it okay for a man to strike a woman? And I mean, lay her out.
I was watching one of my favorite old Westerns, the Wild Wild West, and if you've ever seen the Intros to the show you know that early on, the Cartoon version of West would go through several situations. One of them included a woman, who would kiss him, and then you see her raise a Knife and just as she is about to stab him to death, West bops her one and lays her out. That got changed over time where she would still be about to stab him. but instead of hitting her, West would kiss her and she'd just sort of forget all about killing him. That also reminded me of shows like the Honeymooners, where Ralph would get upset with Alice and tell her "One of these Days, Pow! To the moon, Alice."!
Well, that got me to wondering, if it is ever permissable for a man to hit a woman? As I said, for me, under normal circumstances, I say no, but then again, if a woman is coming after me with a knife or a gun trying to kill me, then I gotta say knock her @$$ out and deal with the consequences when it's all over.
Some of you know I love to ask these questions, so what's your answer?
