Attention Guys. It's Pretty Simple. Stop Hitting Women.

TORRINGTON: I have a question for all guys out there.

Why is it so hard for some of you morons to figure out that a man never hits a women?

This week, yet again, we see another example of why we are sometimes not so far removed from the cave when it comes to how a women is supposed to be treated.

Florida State freshman De’Andre Johnson, 19, is seen on video punching a women in the face after an altercation in Yianni’s nightclub in Tallahassee, Florida.

Please don’t even start with me with the ‘she hit me first’ crap because that’s just what it is, crap.

It astounds me how often we see these cases in society and I just don’t get why these scum of the earth guys think it’s okay to just haul off and hit a women.

In a packed bar, when everybody is grabbing for space, elbows hit your head, your feet are stomped and somebody may just have had a bad day and things happen.

Alcohol never makes the situation any better but as a guy, you have to know better and walk away.

Time after time after time, we see these cases.

The first time a guy lifts his hand to a women is the last time said women should ever have anything to do with him. While that’s not the case here, it appears random, it’s a good general rule.

Those who are weak enough to feel they can hit a women clearly are not worth the time of day and if you noticed, I haven’t called them men and won’t. They are an embarrassment to the gender.

Any man that lifts a hand to hit a women will never be welcome in my world and should never be accepted by society, no matter his perceived ‘stardom’ or whatever.

Until we as parents underscore the importance of respecting women from the day a guy is born, nothing will change.

More get it than don’t, but it’s a conversation more and more parents need to have with their son’s before it’s too late.
