In light of a recent post, I felt the need to put this out there.
It is NEVER ok to hit a woman. Never, ever, ever. We tend to be stronger than women usually. This, guys, is a responsibility. We were designed that way to be supporters and protectors. To use that strength against your partner is incredibly wrong. There is no excuse, no justification. EVER. Get it into your head fellas - it's not on.
Ladies, if you find yourself in a situation where your partner has felt the need to "give you a bit of a slap," you ARE NOT TO BLAME. No matter what you said, no matter what you did, do not justify your partner's actions by blaming yourself. If they have done so, THEY have a problem and you need to acknowledge that. Get out of the situation as quickly as you can.
Spousal abuse in all it's forms is wrong. Emotional, sexual, physical. Man abusing woman. Woman abusing man. I know this, I'm just paying particular attention right now to the physical aspect. Just wanted to get in before people replied reminding me of this! Lol.
If you are in an abusive relationship, I am putting my hand up right now to PM me. I will offer whatever help and support I can. There needs to be a stand taken against this attitude that seems to still exist out there.
Thanks for reading. Rant over!
