Re: Meet the woman hit with the uppercut heard round the 'net
To the "never hit a woman" people - do you think that women should not serve in combat?
There are women who can take out many men. And a 6'5" hard-muscled 270+ man hitting a 5'10" beanpole is even less physically balanced than the average man vs average woman. Or to get technical - a man hitting another man that he's 45% stronger than is more of a difference.
I do have a strong (very strong) "don't hit women" thing but I also think that in part it's a value rooted in eras where women were raised to be physically ineffectual.
