I personally think that if someone deserves to be hit, they should be hit, regardless of gender. The fact that that they're not male shouldn't deter that. What is defined as deserving probably differs between people. Please tell what you think about this issue, and explain your reasoning or quote someone else's. Mods: If you think this belongs in PRSI, please move it, as this could possibly be considered a Social Issue. Edit: I guess you don't understand what I'm saying. I do not mean serious physical violence. By hitting I mean casually and lightly.
