Tüdrukuid ei lööda?
See postitus viimaste päevauudiste kontekstis ajendas mind guugeldama “why is hitting a woman a taboo“.
Ja rahvas arvab:
That whole “never hit a woman” taboo was not about women’s rights or dignity; it was about respecting another man’s property back in the day when every woman was owned by either her father or her husband. It was considered a man’s prerogative to hit their own wives and daughters.
The poor and weak have pretty much always been left to fend for themselves. It’s the fine ladies that were not supposed to be abused. The fine ladies were tasked with the important role of providing motherhood or sex for the fine gentlemen.
At its core is common decency not to hit someone that doesn’t have the ability to defend themselves.
The real question should be “Why is is OK for women to hit men?”
Umm, yeah so the reason it’s not okay for dudes to hit chicks is the same reason it’s not okay for you to punch your hamster. They die too easily.
The person who can do more damage is the one who should exercise the most restraint.
It has nothing to do with physical strength – we’ve gotten to the point where it’s ok for a 6ft tall, 200lb woman to punch a 5ft tall, 100lb man in the face and the only reaction is laughter, even if the guy dies. I think maybe pregnancy has something to do with it – like in the back of our minds, we secretly suspect all women are pregnant and could miscarry at any second.
Historical materialism might explain this with the answer that women control birth and life so hitting them isn’t too conducive to population, civilization, or society.
I don’t know, because most of them deserve it.
