Stephen A. Smith: Men Shouldn’t Hit Women and Women Shouldn’t Provoke Men
My father once told me, “You should never put your hands on a woman. If you are dating a woman that makes you feel angry enough to hit her, than she isn’t the woman for you.” Basically he meant, it’s up to you to be a man and never blow your cool. He also meant you should be a good judge of character and never entertain a woman that would insist on picking fights where either of you get angry to that point of no return.
What I want to know is how do we as men respect women completely and treat our mothers/sister as equals, if we(men and women) constantly justify reasons to which women shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions., rather it’s with phrases like:
“women aren’t as strong as men physically”
which from a physiological standpoint is true.
“women are emotional and irrational”
which is a case by case basis, but we do know that men and women think differently than one another.
“a man is suppose to be the bigger person”
so men are suppose to be more mature than women?
Stephen A. Smith’s view on domestic abuse and men hitting women.
That moment when Whoopi Goldberg said she supports equal ass-whoopins.
This post is meant to start dialogue on the topic of physical abuse between men and women. I definitely don’t have all the answers.
