“If a Woman Hits You, You Have The Right to Hit Her Back – Whoopi Goldberg


I don’t get how some people think we have to repay every evil. Violence no matter the cause is completely wrong. Men should on no account hit women. Women also should never hit men, because they know they won’t fight back.

Due to the recent leaked video of Jay Z and Solange Knowles elevator fight, people are beginning to share their views on the matter.

Actress and co-host Whoopi Goldberg ensured she isn’t left out but her statement didn’t sit well with so many.

She says: “I think Solange was quite ready for him to do whatever he was going to do,” she said. “This is the thing: If anybody hits you, you have the right – I know that many people are raised in a different way – but if a woman hits you, to me, you have the right to hit her back.”

When asked if she believed it is okay for a man to hit a woman, she added: “If I slap a man, he has every right to slap me back.”

Seriously? An eye for an eye in this civilized world?

      You are right. This is one of the incentives some men get for being violent. Violence irrespective of your gender should never be encouraged!

        What about the men who aren’t violent? You are trying to focus only on the ones who are getting a dose of their own medicine. You think all men should pay for the violent men? You should share those ideals with every man you know and they’d probably run away from you.

        Self defense is something used to ensure that a person can protect themselves against an attacker. It doesn’t matter if the attacker is a man or a woman, the self defense is used for self preservation, and you are against it if it has anything to do with a man protecting himself against a woman. There are some very small men out there, and there are some very athletic and big women out there who can easily beat a man to death, but that’s okay with you.

        Too bad what you desire is not going to become a reality for the people who prefer making wise decision.

      Shut up with all the “Men should’nt hit women” GARBAGE. Self defense all the way, and just like there are men out there who don’t have the mental capacity to keep their hands to themselves, there are also women out there with the same stupid violent logic. There are people that protect these women even in the event that a man is trapped and is being stabbed to death by a woman who doesn’t want him to break up with her because she is violent. That has happened before, but he shouldn’t be able to fight for his life because society feels that she is weaker than him? F*ck that sh*t. You support violence against men.

      You losers are part of the problem and force abused men to feel ashamed about being abused.

      I’m a firm believer of self defense, you put your hands on me and I will protect myself from being harmed. I don’t care if you are a woman, a man, or an animal because my life is way more important than someone releasing their tension by using someone as a punching bag.

      Violent women and men deserve each other and no one else.

    I agree with Whoopi. Defend yourselves people, and leave the violent people lonely or at a mandatory anger management class.
