Is It Ok

So Say you found yourself in the middle of a group of teenage girls and you were being attacked. do you think that it is ok to defend yourself however you can? P.S there is no one else around and you dont have a cell phone, you are a grown man and ther is no way out

Yes

Although this scenario is extremely vague, it doesn't matter who is attacking you. You defend yourself regardless of who is attacking you. The idea that women are too fragile to be attacked but not so much that they themselves can attack others is demeaning and sexist to men and women.

Well said. If you are defending yourself it only matters what they are doing to you, and not who they are.

Side: Yes

I am inclined to agree, but do you think that holds true regardless of the physical capabilities of the defender and attacker, as well as what tools are at the respectively groups disposal?

I am, of course, alluding to police brutality, particularly against adolescents.

Side: Yes

Yes. Kill them all. You would be doing their families a favor. Teenage girls make Nazi's seem nice.

Side: Yes

Yeah, I guess, I mean if people are hurting you then you need to fight back, if only to get to a point where you can escape the situation.

This is, like, a weirdly specific debate though. Does 123456789101 often find themselves being beaten up by groups of teenage girls?

Side: Yes

um i don't get beat up by teen girls. However i did see a story in the news that i wanted to hypothesis. a man was at the park when he say his kid getting beat up by other teens. now if someone were beating on my kid (if i had one) i would do what the father did witch was attack the teens with full force. seeing as that was his own flesh and blood. so i Ask you all this wouldn't any halfway decent father protect his kid with his life???????!!!!!!!!

That is all

Side: Yes

If you were the father...good luck to you, my good sir, with finding someone who can put up with your demeaning sexist views.

Well, most certainly, any father would instinctively protect his children from whatever the threat was with the full force of his physical ability. Also, if surrounded by a bunch of thuggish girls who were either attacking me, or seemed preparing to do so, then once again, in common with most men, I would start swinging punches with the intention of causing as much damage and injury as I could. Then, if able to do so, I would get into my fast, Al Capone ''getaway''car and watch the smoke from the burning rubber of my tyres in the rear view mirror. A gang of feral females can be almost as tough a gang of male thugs. Regardless of how tough the average male thinks he is, he wouldn't stand much of a chance if there were more than two of them and they were experienced, street fighting hooligans.

their is no such thing as "ok" absolutely. Moral absolutes are impossible, in any situation you do as much bad as good.

Side: No

I believe in the question - as screwed up as it is, life can be made up of all kinds of perverse situations.

Instead of saying either yes or no, what I would posit is that a person need not feel restricted to either or. Say a group of teenage girls are around you; speak intelligently.

Recollect intelligent things which you know, and then just speak them - as many of them as possible. We're all the Universe, and therefore there should never be any time that what the Universe is can't be spoken.

Side: No
