How can men and women be equal when it is socially "less" acceptable for a man to walk up and punch a woman in the face versus punching a man in the face?
This social stigma stands out to me as something that needs to somehow be changed.
Almost all little boys are brought up being told pretty much the same thing; that hitting women is wrong. It is considered a positive and proper way of thinking; but is it not at the same time completely sexist to imply that it is more or less wrong to attack somebody because of their sex.
A Women can punch a man in the face and it is still nowhere near as big of a deal as if a man were to punch a woman; even in retaliation.
So how can women ever be considered equal while this type of thing is still around? Sexism is still being taught @_@
Hypocrisy of society
