I was taught that no one is allowed to put their hands on you in a way that can harm you. And if they do, you have to fight that person back.
Sure they can talk smack about you and stuff. But hurting you is a big NO. Or are you so much of a pacifist that you won't budge an inch if a person hits you or insults you?

What do you think? Would you find the courage to hit someone that hit you back or walk away from it all? What about your loved ones? If someone hurt a loved one, would you fight back or do nothing?



What are your thoughts?

No shit. Personally I hit people before they even get the chance to hit me. If i sense there is gonna be a fight ill always swing first. dont give the opponent an opportunity to swing first

In my opinion if someone violated the NAP, you have every right to annihilate them.

My philosophy is simple: You throw the first punch, it probably won't land, then you get the crap beat out of you because I won't take crap from others.

Duh you hit back and you hit back harder. Even animals know to do this. No one hunts tigers because tigers fight back, you hunt caribou.

See, this is another thing.

What if their female, females you probably already know this xD

But us males have been taught to NEVER EVER EVER HIT A FEMALE.

...

But if she's coming at me fists swinging or with a weapon? Do I just take said knife to the stomach and be all oh noez, I'm sorry, I'm sure you'll calm down sooner or later!

This isn't taking into account the obvious strength differences.

My motto is if you're going to hit me, prepared to get hit back, doesn't matter who you are...unless you're like 7 foot tall and have muscles on top of your muscles...why are you picking on me? D:

^it's 2017 it's equal rights, dont you know? Not hitting a woman is sexist. That would imply that she is inferior.

Anywas, yes if someone hits you you should hit them back. But there probably are some circumstances where you shouldn't.

I do remember once someone hit me and i didn't hit them back. These guys that were beefing with us well, me and one of them were in each others faces both talking shit but not doing anything and his mate smacked me in the face rom the side. It blurred my vision for a moment and then i blocked his attempted kick to the side of my head. He stormed of to get his old man that was in the shop apparently (we were teenagers) so i got the fuck outta there..(lol this thread just made me remember that).

If someone is going to take the first swing, then it would be in their best interest to end it in one swing because thats all they will get

A) If you have to fight, hit first and hit hard
B) It really all depends. I think to One Piece (I can't remember exactly when in the series) where Luffy and Zoro got beat on and didn't do anything. They would be fine and there was no particular reason to fight.

I don't like fighting and it would probably take a lot to push me.
But in a situation where I know it won't be one hit or I know the intent is there; fuck the motherfucker.

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

I got in more scuffles than I could count as a kid, but as an adult I probably wouldn't hit back unless they managed to deal some actual damage to me, in which case it becomes a self-defense thing and I don't care what their age or gender is - I'll defend myself.

If they don't actually hurt me, hitting back just seems like pointless escalation.

In my plenty of bar fights in the backwater countryside (when I was in my early to mid-20's), I've never swung first and I was usually the last man standing. I was usually the guy that was drunk and would be talking to his friends about science, religion, and how horrible America is/was. My opinions would stir the locals until they'd get offended and start a fight. I normally let them get a few good hits in before I got to the point where I'd swing back - many cases, one or two punches was all they were looking to do anyways. Only one guy was smart enough to lay me out flat in that first punch.

The bar (and the local police) focused heavily on the "equal exchanged" scenario. As long as you're not hurting them much more than they're hurting you, then they're not going to lock you up or kick you out. The moment that balance is clearly (visibly) disturbed is the moment you're going to get a night in prison and potential assault charges against you (though, to be fair, most of the fellow locals wouldn't press charges, knowing they were drunk off their asses when it started). If you broke someone's nose or bone, expect to pay whatever their insurance didn't cover (and in that area - until Obamacare, most people didn't have insurance).

Most fights are people knee-jerking from the first punch. They get pissed off, throw a punch. I'll block it normally or make sure it hits somewhere that won't bother me too much. It takes a clear intent of serious harm to make me throw a punch back. If you can block punches and kicks, it's not going to cause too much damage to you as long as they're not in it for the long-haul. Some people just need to let out their anger for that one or two punch and that's the end of it. The moment you return a punch you're just fueling more aggression and the fight will carry on regardless (both people will continue as their rage/anger grows from being hit).

If someone insults me, I just laugh at them. Insults are usually someone's pathetic attempt at getting someone riled up to throw the first punch or do something irrationally. Laughing does the same thing to them that they expected to do to you - so it's all good. I do tend to stop people from insulting my girlfriend, family members are fair game (they can handle themselves and don't need me to defend them).
