His response needed to be enough to make her stop, and he clearly did more than that, but NO ONE, man or woman, should have to allow themselves to be assaulted without defending themselves.
I’m really really tired of this presumption that women can hit men without consequences. Watch TV and you’ll see it three times a night. Played for comedy value. Ha ha ha. Look at the poor sap. He got beat by a woman.
She left the house eventually. When an angry man tells you to leave, you get out and then go get the cops.
Notice again the double standard. How many times do men just get thrown out of the bedroom or house by the woman and are just expected to meekly go sleep on the sofa or at the Y.
Attacking a woman for recording him with a cell phone video is not “self-defense”.
He is not responsible for her behavior. He is responsible for his own. His own behavior was criminal and reprehensible.
This is a boy who kicked in a door after his girlfriend locked herself in the bathroom to disengage from the fight. That is not the mindset of a man defending himself.
This is a boy who grabbed his girlfriend by the leg with intent to pull her off the bed because she was recording him on a cell phone video. (A wise man would be on his *best* behavior in such circumstances; not his *worst*).
This is a boy who beat his girlfriend before:
“The girlfriend said that she had photographs of her injuries from past abuse and beatings.”
This is not a man who was attacked by a crazy, abusive girlfriend.
This is a boy whom no conservative man should defend, because conservatives respect women. Liberals despise them.
