Just because a man can take a punch better than a woman doesnt give women the right of impunity to go ahead and smack their men around. Its always the man thats taken to jail even if the woman starts it. She can hit him all she wants but it only takes one hit from the man to land him in jail. It high time for the law to protect both sides. Just because a man can takes the punch doesnt mean he should HAVE to take it. In reality its dont start a fight you cant finish.
