I dont agree with you.
Almost on a daily basis I see,in my doctors office, women beaten up by their hubs or boyfriends.They are mostly women with elementary school,very seldom high school,colledge education extremely rare.
Today the power is self control.
A mature man,self confident and strong will never hit the woman.
Do not confuse "nice" with weak.
My wu-shu teacher is able to beat up a half dozen punks in a blink.
Another nite after training we went for a drink in a bar.
While at a table,an drunk,dirty man approaches and asked us to live his table.
Our teacher apologize and we went to another table.
Later we asked him why he didnt knock him down.
Our teacher said that he didnt touched him.
And that a man who can conquer himself is stronger than a man who can beat up a thousand man!
