Feministing.com approves of violence against men

Hit Men Poster

This may be my favorite feminist Flickr to date. A translation:

Careful! Women answer back

If you stupidly stare at a woman, talk rubbish or touch her, you have to be aware that she might insult you loudly, a glass of beer is emptied over you or you might be hit in the face. We strongly advise you to refrain from this kind of harrassments.

Women, migrants, homeless people, transgender people, gays and lesbians are often victims of assaults. Don’t look away, interfere!

”Violence is never funny.” — A common quote from feminists when violence against women is ‘comical-ized’. It seems however, violence against men can potentially be funny, as in: if he deserves it. The reverse, however, does not seem to hold true; violence against women is never funny.

The only time hitting someone is acceptable is if they touch, assault, or ask you to hit them. However, they also think hitting a man for staring or ”talking rubbish” is OK. Hitting a man, especially for such trivial reasons as the two mentioned above, is a bad idea; most likely, he’ll punch you back and it will hurt you more than it did him. Furthermore, hitting someone for staring or ”talking rubbish” at you is assault, not self-defense since self-defense is: ”the act of defending one’s person when physically attacked” as defined by dictionary.com. Assault is a punishable offense by law.

Is going out of your way to slap a man really worth getting punched back in the face or going to jail? Feministing.com seems to think so, as well as approving of violence against men.
