Almost all the time, no. Only if you are threatened beyond that initial hit is it justified to hit back. So generally speaking it doesn't, but in some situations it is justified to do so.

When you think about it as a adult, We live in Civilized World and its look weird if someone come out and start hitting someone.. We'll view them as Barbarian or Retarded people lol.

But if we live in Samurai era, its norm for us to see the fighting like that! XD

But nowdays its expected to see fighting in the ring, scheduled fight but in public places.. we see them as mental ill people!

You all feel this way now as a Adult? But when we were kids or Teenager we thought about ruling the world as Martial Artist! lol >.<

Ehh.. I dunno dude, I guess it depends on the reason and how hard they hit. I'm usually a chill dude and rarely gets mad. If I did something wrong, I guess I deserve to get hit. If it's a soft punch, i take it as a joke. If its a hard punch, then I'll punch back. Gender does not apply. If you hit hard, expect to get hit hard back.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Assault is illegal, I'll just have you charged for it to cover the costs of any bills I might have, they should learn to control themselves. What do you gain by hitting them back? You've just lost all moral high ground you'd otherwise have.

I haven't been in a physical altercation in 20 years. I honestly wouldn't know how I would react since it would take a lot to push me to throw a swing. I guess it would just depend on the situation.

Example: If I'm at work and someone throws a punch at me, I might just let them hit me so they could get them fired. My work has zero tolerance for that stuff.

An altercation if I'm out with my family, you better believe I'll fight like a wild animal.

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:


Not true. I'll knock a bitch out if she hits first. IDAF

Physical blows don't last as long as financial blows.

now a day the chance of being on video is pretty high-- that will be your evidence--gather all the evidences to support your case and then sue them!

they can't really put a cap on "pain and suffering" lawsuits so also tack on "lost wages and medical bill, expenses,etc.." and sue for the maximum amount

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).


Yeah, it really depends on the circumstances. 90% of the time fighting is pointless and it's some shithead trying to start it because its literally the only thing they have left to feel "bigger" than you. If someone takes a swing over something you said or something they heard it's usually an admission of weakness really and it may even just be as you say, one or two swings as an impulse and that's all they're really interested in.

The other 10% of the time someone is actually trying to consciously seriously hurt you or someone else. In which case, have at them.

But I mean, it's sort of the difference between a fight and an attack. A fight is two people throwing punches / wrestling that don't actually have any real intent to kill or maim each other. An attack is one person actively trying to really hurt or kill the other person, and that person defending themselves.

I'll avoid a fight, as it's pointless for me to sink to that level. But I'll obviously respond to an attack.

All that said, people have zero right to put their hands on anyone else uninvited so to speak.
