With another woman, no. I have been tempted, but I think it’s undignified to do that.
Also, I’d be afraid that I might be charged/arrested over it which obviously would be bad. I have several years of brazilian jiu jitsu and could permanently injure someone too. I definitely would regret doing that later. Also, I understand that charges laid could be worse (assault with a deadly weapon) if you actually know how to kill someone with your bare hands. (And I do.)
HOWEVER. I did punch a guy who walked up and slapped my ass. There was another time a guy grabbed it and squeezed (gross! Wtf!) and I slapped him across the face hard enough to leave a hand print. I do not regret either of these.
Lastly, can I just add how disturbing it is that many of us have experienced this uninvited groping? Geez!!! That is horrible. What is wrong with people???

I punched my sister-in-law in the face because she was physically attacking my boyfriend (her brother-in-law). I didn’t even think about it, it was instinct, when I saw her attacking my boyfriend, I just punched her. It’s funny though, because now we are almost the best of friends. lol

I grew up in a very rough neighborhood and used to fight constantly as a tween and teenager. I have always been the shortest person of my class and I think people tend to think I am a pushover which is the farthest thing from the truth. I don’t take any BS from anyone.
My last physical altercation was when I was 21, this chick in the club tried to jump the line at the bar and I politely stated to her that I was next. This crazy chick got all in my face yelling and spitting on me and then pushed me. Why. did. she. do. that? I decked her so fast she didn’t know what to do and then I wailed on her several times before being jacked up by the security guards and thrown out…Bad Girls Club style. Not the proudest moment of my life, but I don’t take too kindly to strangers putting their hands on me.
I would never, as an adult, throw the first punch. I have outgrown that. I prefer to talk things out now although I still have a bit of a sharp tongue that I can’t seem to get rid of. I grow more every day, don’t judge me 😛
ETA: Unless it’s a situation like the other thread where some woman was cuddling with my man in my house, all bets are off!

@MrsPanda99: Hell yes and I’d do it again. I don’t mind defending myself and my loved ones. Anyone messes with me (like physically) and I’m ready to go. I might be 4′ nothing but I’ll lay you out. I remember one time in high school a girl who I didn’t even like was being held down by two other girls with another girl wailing on her and a lot of other girls watching and video taping. I don’t even remember what all happened. I do know that I broke one of their camera’s though and there was an imprint on a locker.
Same if someone tries to mess with my FH. I don’t care if they are a man or woman. I might die trying to defend him, but no one touches my loved ones. ever.

@MrsPanda99: I haven’t been in a huge fight, but I actually got sucker punched by my best friend. She totally caught me off guard so I went after her to lay her out and some of my friends held me back. So that’s all I could do was bitch her out until a few of our other friends put her in the car to leave. They knew I was pissed and I would have snapped her in half like a tooth pick. Lol

When I was younger I got into a couple of fights. I’m smaller (length and weight) than girls my age growing up so they used to think they could just pick on me just because I’m small. I’ve shown them otherwise. And I’ve had to defend other smaller people as well. I WILL lay a bully out.
As far as being an adult I have had some verbal confrontations with other females (2) that have tried to disrespect me and get with my man while we are together (we have children and live together) and I’ve had to put them in line as well but they never got physical (they know me and my reputation).

@lolita39: I am the same way – very protective of my husband and family. I have definitely been in fights growing up defending my sister and I have even been in grown up fights. Sometimes there is no other option. I am not going to sit there and have a nice chat while someone tries to punch me in the face, lol.

@deetroitwhat: +1, that’s very true. If it is possible, I’d sooner see the bitch go to jail too. However, if it’s not then I am ready to go (probably not very surprising :P).

I would. If someone threatens me, I’ll knock them out. If a skank makes a move on my husband, she’ll be flattened. I’m an aggressive bitch, don’t screw with me.

I did karate from when I was about 7 til I was maybe 13, I have my black belt and my mum was a 2x kickboxing champion, so I got used to *fighting* although we never did it to hurt each other, it was just training. Plus my sister and I used to get into it sometimes. I still feel pretty bad about fighting with her.
Other than that there was once when I was about 14. This girl and I had been fighting for maybe 2 weeks, and we took the same bus home from school, and as I went to get on, she pushed me out of the way and then donkey kicked me. Needless to say that made me pretty mad, so I pushed her and threw her into one of those metal chair rest thingys older buses have, she then pulled my finger backwards (?!) and I, in true catfight fashion, pulled her hair to make her let go. After the little hair pulling incident I was thinking “WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?! PUNCH HER!” So I did. Then my friend and her brother broke it up.
I can still hear the bus driver lol. “SOMEONE BREAK THOSE TWO UP!” everyone was like “Nope, this has been coming for weeks, let them go!”

@Lovemelovemyhorses: I did karate too! From 12-15. I used to have to spar with this little brat, I think she was about 10. Even though it was supposed to be non contact, she would hit me as hard as she could. I put up with it for months, until one night I snapped. She went to kick me so I grabbed her leg, yanked her forward with it and said “if you try and hit me ever again, I’ll pull your leg off and ram it up your arse.” Little shit never did it again, and my Sensei was impressed. Ha.
Around the same time, I was having issues with a “frenemy”, she’d been yelling abuse at me and getting people to do the same for weeks. School was over for the day and I was heading for the gate, and as I walked past her, she muttered “slut’. I threw my bag down, yelled “what was that, bitch?!” and I grabbed her round the neck and squeezed hard. Took 3 teenage boys to pull me off her. Best bit? Because everything was on record (I’d been seeing the school counsellor) she got suspended for a week, and I got an apology from the principal.

I almost did when I was younger. Granted these people invited me to a “friend”s house with the sole intent of jumping me upon arrival. I don’t think I’d ever start one now, but I won’t just sit there and take it, either. You can bet I’ll give ’em a good old-fashioned Texas talkin’ to if they try something.
A lot of people on here tend to put themselves in a subservient position or make themselves a doormat in the name of being a proper lady and the better person and taking the high road when really it just comes across as a weakness. Gotta nip that in the bud. I’ll take a lot of shit, but I will not tolerate disrespect ever.
ETA: There isn’t any talking involved in said talkin’ to.

@shadesofviolet: LOL! That is awesome! Now that you mention it we used to have minimal contact in sparring, like we could just sort of graze the other person, and one of my partners used to hit much harder than you were meant to as well.
My mum was our sensei, and she actually got into a punch on with a guy at the gym one day. She had just had a kickboxing fight and she got TKO’d within about 30 seconds. She had fought a fair few times before, but apparently this girl had kicks that would knock the wind right out of you and they thought mum might have broken a couple of ribs or something (she didn’t, just badly winded). Anyway, a few days later, this guy at the gym starts going around saying she threw the fight. Mum was not too pleased with that, so she pretty much ended up saying “I think we need to get in the ring and sort this out”. She knocked him out. I thought that was pretty funny!
@HonoraryNerd: YES! I’m not much for the high road. I don’t see the point in acting like someone being disrespectful towards me is ok, and I also don’t think ignoring something that is annoying me is very gratifying. I’m not going to go around punching people whenever I’m annoyed, but if you start it, no. No way in hell am I going to sit there and let you hit me, and if you’re being a bitch, no way am I going to just stay quiet and act like what you’re doing is ok.
