Depends very much on the circumstances, but I'm not opposed to a fight.

I knew a girl in uni I fought with, physically, on a couple of occasions. We argued a lot, and just kind of agreed to dish it out physically after we started to get mad with each other over nothing, like just passing each other on campus. Worked for us, even if we both ended up at the doctor's at some point. And we became friends after we got over our differences.

I very rarely fight, otherwise. The times that I get close to it, I am dealing with someone being racist or transphobic to a friend of mine. But they aren't generally eager to punch a cis, white woman, so they tend to just call me a cunt and leave. I try to de-escalate before it comes to screaming at someone, but some people are very persistent and a little aggression is necessary to put things in perspective.

No. Unless I have to. I could walk away from aggression, but if it turns physical then I have to defend myself, and the people around me from harm.

I will never fight anyone for name calling or anything, but the second someone makes a threat against my family I will give them no mercy and damn the consequences.

Only got in one fight in my life, kid attacked my brother on the bus while in elementary school, I took care of him.

A few other close calls though, but when I was ready to throw down, the other guys chickened out. You know what they say about all bark and no bite

It's normal for someone to get emotional when people get violent, and especially when the offending party is in the wrong. However, that's also when most people lose their heads and put themselves in situations that leave them with consequences making the whole thing pernicious. Instead of following the ebb of anger, evaluating your situation and options allows you to expand on possible outcomes. If you are in a situation where you are in the right but fighting could damage your reputation or standing at work yet the offending target appears vulnerable to breakdown with some calculated words, then problem resolved without affecting your lifestyle negatively. You might find yourself in a situation where you are "called out" into a fight, and willing, but striking first could set you up for ostracization, so egging on your target to strike first on with a dignified, logical, and non-violent choice of words will allow you to keep a righteous standing and enter a desired fight. Like H_Guderian was saying, don't get boxed in and end up the guy who was in the right but everyone else thinks is "the guy in the skeleton suit beating on the new kid".

We talkin' physical? I find a lot of people crumble like wet tissues just through talking loudly at them. If not they become enraged and you can lead them around by the nose. Ruling out solutions is a good way to force yourself into a box.

Hear me out a little, if you've never been in a fight, one day you might see someone else in an unfair brawl, and not intervene because 'I've never fought before.' The world isn't as nice as we'd like it to be, but if a coworker gets violent, or there's injustice in my neighborhood, I want to know I am willing and capable to intervene.

And on the smaller side of things you'd be amazed how often you see people who avoid even verbal disputes get backed into a metaphorical corner in my office, and then they hold it in for years until they explode. And that explosion is often violent. Fight a little for your own rights today, to avoid a bigger fight later. Life is a struggle, not an after school special.
Wise words.

Fighting is for ferals. Don't seek out confrontation and avoid it whenever possible.

If I'm backed into a corner, however, expect 10+1 of my buddies to help me.

I'm lazy, weak and allergic to pain. the chance of me fighting is proportional to how likely I am to die anyway if I don't.

Well it's about a matter of confrontation too. We agree that we don't confront with gangsters, but we need to confront our boss

Yes, I would get into a fight if I really had to. But I will try to avoid it as much as I can, fighting is only my last resort. I think the last time I fought someone was about four years ago. She was mad cause the guy that she liked, liked me. Wouldn't stop harassing me and was pushing me around, wouldn't stop following me. Then she told me to come at her and started saying shit about my mom. So I came at her. She came out with a black eye. Apparently her head was bleeding a bit and her stomach hurt. I was kneeing her in the stomach and hitting her head against the side walk. We're friends now and then my brother was yelling at me cause he said I should have never done that and he raised me better TT-TT

I was taught if someone hits you, turn the other cheek...if they hit that one too beat the living hell outta them. That said, if someone attacks anyone I care about, there will be no cheek-turning.
