Is it ever ok for a man to hit a woman? If yes please give example.

Self defense. Or if she's been naughty ;)

in the matter of reasonable and appropriate self defense.

Self defense! Just because she's a woman doesn't mean she has the right to beat a man. It doesn't matter. If she's going bat shit crazy and you can't stop her with words, put her in her place! I'm not saying to beat her, but stop her. Seriously.

Only when he is defending himself or another innocent person from harm

Only if the woman is hitting the man, then you should be able to defend yourself.

No, but it's not fair for her to hit HIM if he can't hit back‼️

Let's say he's 5'5" and she's 5'10" and has 75 lbs on him. She attacks him. Is he supposed to sit there defenseless? He would have to defend himself.

When she hits him first, when she has a knife and is swinging it like a crazy person.

If a woman is hurting my family and I can get her to stop no other way, I'm putting her down.

Equality. It is as ok for a man to hit a woman as it is for a man to hit a man

Though I have not found reason to hit another person since high school.

For the same reason it's okay for a woman to hit a man, if she is attacking him

Never say never. On average, its really unacceptable to hit anyone. But, I can conceive of situations where it might be necessary to defend against or attack another person regardless of gender.

If your a feminist then I guess men should be able to hit women as much as women are able to hit men. We are equal right?

I have never had to follow through.

I have always said if you hit me like a man I will respond in kind.

Self defense, physical arrests, only when it is really your last line of defense tho

If the woman is the aggressor and you can subdue her that is completely acceptable.

Nemacyst - many comments in other polls defend the police for killing various people in every instance - even holding a screwdriver. Why didn't you just shoot the "armed" woman.
BTW, kudos to you for not shooting and finding a way to preserve life.

When she's coming at you a 2nd or 3rd time and you are legit trying to defend yourself. Reality is: guys are purdy much always bigger &stronger than a girl.Males are also much more likely to have experience, or more info on fighting than a female.

-that puts a females at a big time disadvantage going up against any guy. I think most guys do or should factor that in before "defending" their self against a woman.

Self defense, that's it. Otherwise, no.

Self-defense, or the defense of others. Just as would be the case for men, too.
