I imagine female to male violence has always been around. You see lot of it on social media ,where a female or females will taunt a male and hit him . Random men on the subway to Bus drivers. Females slapping often hitting men as hard as they can. Usually, these are young women, often traveling in packs.
A few months ago, a very young woman cut in line at the R Street Safeway When the man in front of her objected, she called him a racist. I was behind him and his wife and said he wasnt a racist, and she was wrong. As I was talking to wife, the young woman pushed past him and his wife and attempted to chest bump me and ordered me to stop talking! I’m double her weight and stand more than a foot taller. I left the line to defuse the situation . She told the man in front of her, she would be waiting for him outside. As she and her freinds were leaving the store, the very young woman kicked a display getting the attention of the security guard.
At an early age, males are taught never to strike a woman. NEVER ! There isn’t an asterisk here. It doesn’t matter if she attacks you. You shall NEVER hit a woman! I have seen alcohol fueled women attack the bouncers at nightclubs, often without provocation, Young women in groups attacking men, provoking men. Men who retailate are often restrained and sometimes attacked by other men.
Recently, there was a commotion at the 12th Light Rail Station, a thirty-ish woman was slapping kicking, yelling and biting a late thrity-ish male. Angry, yes, out of control, yes. There were two groups, one group was horrified and the other entertained, capturing the drama with their cell phones. You could feel some of the slaps. As the male was attempting to protect himself from the blows, she was screaming and threatening to get other males she knew to “beat his ass” .
After landing some stinging slaps, he slapped her, knocking her to the ground. None of the men stepped in. When she stood up, her nose was bleeding. Her voice grew higher and stronger than before ,the words she used were unrecognizable. As she walked towards him, he raised his hand. She said, “he would be dead later” for hitting a woman! She called him faggot and a punk for hitting a woman. She was crying now. She looked towards the four women for sympathy, and couldn’t fine a sympathetic eye.
As a light rail trail entered the station, she started screaming at him again. She screamed as they boarded the train. Suddenly he jumped off the train through the rear doors as they were closing and started walking towards downtown.
One of the men, at the station said “these females are crazy, you can’t go just walkin up to some man and start wailing on him and expect him to stand there and take it!” “I would have beat her ass the second time she hit me!”
