This isn’t a topic I talk about much, but I think this is about female entitlement.
As a man: if your friend was resisting arrest, and then you come up and get in the officer’s face, probably while yelling, and fucking shove him, you know it’s on. Hell, if you do that to anybody , that is basically an invitation to fight. You are requesting a fight.
I think that for a lot of women, it doesn’t even occur to them that they’d get punched in the face. Because nobody punches women in the face, not even other women. There was some comedian, I think it was Joel McHale, who was talking about being in the parking lot of a Target with his wife, when some car suddenly swings in front of them and cuts them off. The wife then starts screaming obscenities at this car full of guys (and I think actually wanted to chase after them). and he was actually confused for a second. And then he said, “Oh, I get it: she’s never been punched in the mouth before.”
For all the talk of men not being attuned to social cues and the signals women give off, women are largely ignorant of several things as well, and I think this is a shining example of such a situation.
