I agree with this completely hun I get so annoyed when people tell guys that they should just let girls beat on them becuse "oh shes just a girl man up"
Preach it, girl!
And before people tell me 'violence' isn't the answer, you obviously haven't recognized that doesn't mean other people won't use violence. Yes you shouldn't be violent but you shouldn't take a beating if you can defend yourself. And if you can't defend yourself call for help. There's no shame in needing help. And if the person beating you is your significant other, please leave them. Someone who truly loves you will never intentionally hurt you like that.
