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!

How about giving 'him' a slap?
I know some people see male hits female abuse as worse than female hits male, but they're equally wrong in my eyes.
It always stuns me when people pass over comments about members slapping their husbands, biting their husbands... and there's a lack of outrage.

I am well aware that it is wrong. But I started this thread to address abuse of women. I agree whole heartedly with you.

I made it a point of always telling my son, that no matter what a women does him he is never to hit a woman. I taught him that as a man he normal stronger than a woman and that his hand are made for loving not hurting.

Dam straight it's not right any person that hits me again will be going down.
One little slap and getting away with it tells them it's ok.
I really think most people believe it and I think that everyone should stand up to any kind of abuse be it man to woman woman to man and say no!
Your the best man for putting this out

It sickens me when I hear of this stuff, and it's defended by calling it a 'love tap.'
Sorry, no, it's not. It's abuse, no matter what you want to call it.

Love u for saying this- gives me faith that there r good men out there

Thanks glutton it's nice to know there''s men out there that have zero tolerance for DV.
DV - man on woman, woman on man, man on man, woman on woman makes me sick
I'm raising my son to know real men don't hurt girls/women. It's my belief men that hit women are spineless cowards.
