Girl Throws Drink At Guy, Guy Knocks Girl On Her Butt | Gender Equality In 2009

So there's this little video that has been doing the rounds on social networking sites, long story short, girl throws a drink in a guy's face, guy sweeps her legs and dumps her on the ground. It's been greeted with general hilarity because both parties are clearly idiots and nobody actually gets hurt. However, it has inspired great discussion on one of my favorite social networking sites of all time, Reddit, and I thought it would be highly relevant to the interests of my readers as well.

Let's watch this video, then have a chat!

(Would have loved to embed this, but YouTube keeps removing the video, so we're stuck with the Live Leak version which can't be hosted here, so be a dear, pop over and watch it, then come and join us back here :) )

Girl Throws Beer, Gets Ass Kicked

A great deal of posters, male and female felt that women still feel a sense of entitlement when it comes to being violent towards the male gender, and believe that it is okay to slap, hit, or otherwise assault a guy whilst he has no real recourse. Most of them felt that it was an unfair rule and that although the guy should not have taken the action he did, it was none the less refreshing to see a woman experience some consequences for an aggressive action.

It challenges the old rule of 'men shouldn't hit women,' which is personally never a rule I subscribed to anyway. Fortunately I've never had to hit anyone, male or female, (aside from my younger brother and I who were about the same size and the same age growing up and those fights were always fair and equal and even then actual punching was fairly rare, though stuffing heads under car seats was considered an admissible technique.)

Now in this particular video, racist southern girl from the good ol' US of A is having a wild time down in Mexico when she gets into a fracas with some guy who speaks French. (He's a French Moroccan guy, apparently, and he's unfamiliar with the celebrated tradition of women being able to throw drinks on men.) We don't know what happened before they started their little verbal scrap, but we do hear him call her a bitch and we do see her throw beer in his face (which apparently hurts,) and we then see him walk up to her whilst she squeals 'don't you touch me!' and sweep her onto her ass. The whole time she manages to keep a hold of her sunglasses, which could mean that they are glued to her head and her hand is glued to them, or it could mean that she's a little bit retarded when it comes to her priorities.

Now of course, had this gone wrong it could have gone very wrong. The sweep was risky, she could have hit her silly head on something and killed herself. But the real question here is, was this a gender equal action? If he had swept a guy onto his ass, would anyone care? If yes, why? If no, why? If it is an issue of her being smaller than him, would it matter if it was a little weedy guy who decided to throw beer in a bigger guy's face? Or are women inherently less equal than men and therefore exempt from the consequences of their actions?

Right or wrong, I'm pretty sure Miss USA there won't be throwing a drink at a guy any time soon.

LOL That was fun :D

Not sure I have an opinion on your question though :)

Oh I know you have an opinion Misha, but you're right, probably safest not to express it if you want to retain good guy status :D

Total equality is one of those really bad ideas. One-size-fits-all solutions usually are. Still if you want to hang with the big dogs, you'd better be able to play with them. If you don't like the consequences, don't do the action.

I didn't watch the video - I've seen enough of drunken children making fools of themselves live on the streets here anytime there is a public gathering of any kind. Most recently, the Independence Day fireworks.

Is it just me, or others saddened by how some women seem to be lowering themselves and acting like traditional stupid men when we might have hoped that men might have learned to act in a more restrained, traditionally female fashion?

LOL OK, if you charge me with avoiding battle, here you go - I do think that women are better wired for home tasks, and men for providing. And yes, I still open doors and I never hit a women. I've been known to kiss a hand, and to get up when woman enters the room, but this was a while ago, and USA spoiled me :)

If we cannot laugh at drunk teens, then what can we laugh at? Women have an aggressive side just as men do, and some suffer from the same sorts of lack of self control.

Oh what a pity Misha that the USA has spoiled your native chivalry. (But not your ability to rise to a challenge ;)

Regarding your other comment, it's a sad reality of the modern world that most households will require two providers, whether or not the woman is wired for home tasks...

Well being unfamiliar with the whole story, it's hard to judge, but it was funny and I wish he'd just pulled her bikini down around her knees to see if she could chase him hobbled with her own bikini bottoms........

Scenario 1 he took the liberty of copping a feel and ar a verbal advance on her and she crawls his butt verbally for it, he calls her a bitch and gets the drink in the face. Game over, he had it coming.

Scenario 2 she comes at him and he says no thanks and she dog cusses him he calls her a bitch she douses him. He drops her by sweeping her feet out.

She asked for it and it could have been way worse for her than a sore butt in the morning had he chosen to punch her out. In the U.S. both would have gone to jail if law enforcement was called.

Throwing a drink in some ones face just as spitting on them is considered assault. Now days more often than not in domestic violence calls, both parties go to jail if there is evidence to show both invoked strikes or other assault to each other.

In all my years I've hit 2 women, both were well aware of my stance on "If you don't want to fight the bull, don't get in the ring with him." I held back both times and when I say "hit" it was more a bitch slap to one after she bounced an ashtray made of heavy glass off my face during a verbal confrontation. She did something that surprised me, and hurt me and I reacted in an instance, a reflex action if you will, I did not have to walk to her and get her, she was in my face holding the ashtray and surprised me with the first strike.

If I had to walk 15 feet to her I would have not reacted the same way.

The second time was in a Biker bar and this drunk chick slapped me 1 time I told her to back off she slapped me again that's 2 I told her to back off and walked away she pursued and when I turned I got a long-neck beer bottle upside the head. That was 3 and I put her to sleep with a palm strike to her forehead. I consider the palm an act of kindness as it and the strike zone left no marks or caused any major injury. The fact that she fell out I attribute to her drunken state.

I served in the USMC for 2 enlistments, we had Female Marines, WMs if you will and they could get drunk and fight with the best of them at the enlisted club on the bases I was stationed.

I say give them fair warning and after that it's really their own decision as to whether or not they will get struck. Fair warning practice has served me well over the years, the majority were smart enough to choose the highroad and attempt to insult me to death and that does not, in my book, warrant physical retribution. Don't laugh or smile either because you'll just have to endure the shrill shrew that much longer. Just say "I understand" when appropriate and finally she will go away and if your in a descent pub the bouncer will remove her.

In my opinion and from what I can see in the video, he overreacted. He should have gotten a drink and thrown it in her face too.

Very funny - and I reckon no-oen should be hitting anyone, and that includes her throwing the drink at him.

In my opinion, if a woman hits a man, then she should get it right back, but in this case, she threw a drink on him, and he took it way to far, and could have killed her. But in his defense, if he was pretty high on booze, who's to say. I know many times when I was drinking I didn't know my own strength or what I was capable of.

Those who say that the guy took it "way too far," picture this:

Swap the girl for another guy. What would the French dude do? I doubt that he would have stayed still.


sneakorocksolid 7 years ago

I guess i'm old fashioned but if a girl was rude to me I would go find a different girl and let her be rude to me. As far as fighting when I was younger I never minded until I woke up after a night of sucessful fighting and I looked at my self in the mirror and I looked like crap! Not to mention it hurt to eat for a week. I learned to shut-up and walk away.

Had that been another guy, likely a very interesting fight would have taken place. Woman scream for equal rights, and I support that, but, along with equal rights should come equal obligations and consequences. A man, being the recipient of that beer from another man, is more or less obligated by a million years of evolution to respond with enough force to ensure the thrower couldn't, or at least wouldn't want to, do it again. This woman was lucky most men still hold that women don't rate a full out male response to aggression or insult. Though I don't know what started this fracas, the woman did throw the first "punch".

Funny, so what i am hearing is, if guy would throw drink on girl, its ok to kick him in the balls? I will remember that the next time, any of you guys that think it was an equal fight. cheers

What are we? Toddlers? What's the point of turning petty verbal quarrels into physical fights in the first place?? Men are generally stronger than woman as a whole so they really should avoid hitting... however! I have met a great many women who I swear ask for it, partially because they feel entitled to ask for it without consequence. In that case if you get struck it's your own stupid fault. If people were smarter there'd be no need for violence period. It suggests a massive lack of intellect to think people are incapable of TALKING things out like the civilized things I know they can be!

That was just disgusting to watch. A man does not touch a woman NEVER!!! Disgusting!!!!


Mikk 7 years ago

I tend to think had that been another guy tossing the drink, some names-calling, gestures, or comments which question his sexual preferences might have been thrown about. Still, people fail to realize that, as with most conflicts, things can be settled without violent outrages. Respect goes along way for men and women.


Howard McGinthy 7 years ago

As far as I can see, he touched her first, which is what provoked her to throw the drink at him in the first place. Up to that point the situation was purely verbal. For all you guys speaking of situations where women were hitting you and such, this is clearly not the same thing. He was provoking her as much as she him, there's no sign of him trying to back off or just stay away - in fact, he walks AFTER her. To me it looks like he was picking a fight with this girl - essentially the same as picking a fight with someone much weaker, which, in my opinion, is cowardly. And plain ugly, whether it's a boy or a girl. Neither of them behave very well, but he has more responsibility, because he could potentially seriously have hurt her.

The lesson to take from this is that we are all people and we should all be taking care of each other. No one is in the right when it comes to starting a fight!

Should have knocked her out with a straight punch to the jaw, that's what I would have done lol
