There is great condemnation of Ray Rice because he hit a woman. A man should never hit a woman, even if attacked by one. Women are smaller and physically inferior and therefore protected by society. Women are qualified for combat, as police officers, fire fighters, boxing and the marshal arts. Women are equal to men. Women are not equal to men, Women are protected. How do we protect women in combat against such male aggression?

JT--If women are equal to men than what would be the difference in striking a woman?
That is something that just should be a part of a man's morals CJ.
Equality is equality--.or not? Is equality equal, but held to a lower standard by convenience? Should women be held to the same degree of moral conduct?
Read my last sentence CJ. Equality is separate from down right violence. Where would we be if everyone who disagrees hit one another? This is apples and oranges.
peeples-- Disregard anything you like. If Rice had hit a man the size of his wife, would there be this outrage?
Not likely. No because our society teaches don't hit women instead of just don't hit, which is the more appropriate to be taught. I'm not disagreeing with you on that aspect, just that it isn't logical to defend someone hitting someone half the size.
peeples--That is not the issue, is it? We, as a society, are promoting an equality of convenience. This is hypocritical, a contradiction and enormously harmful to young men, who are posed w/ the problem of equal only upon convenience of the woman.
No one says that equality means identical people. Men are in many ways discriminated against now in favor of superiority to women, but how is saying not to hit someone smaller than you harmful to a man? Smaller shouldn't equal less equality.
peeples--Nothing was said about identical people, but rather identical equality. Are you saying that women are superior to men? I would be interested in hearing that. I, think overall you have missed the point or avoiding it.
I wasn't saying women were superior, I was agreeing with you. In many ways women are treated superior to men. However you are failing to answer my ?, How is telling men they shouldn't hit someone half their size wrong?
peeples--Your question, in my life of 70years+, is a given for males, except when the smaller has a small man syndrome.
Sometimes stupid people can't be reasoned with. Where is this superior mindset going & effect on society?
