So I just watched this video and it got me pondering. If a man had talked to him like that (verbal abuse and all), and invaded his personal space like that, specifically in front of such a large group of people, he would have been hit. And obviously if a man had physically attacked him as she did, he would also have been hit. Which leads me to wonder why a woman should receive different treatment than a man would in the same situation? (Where art thou Equality?)
However, another part of me thinks that his course of action was the best. He avoided being violent towards anyone and made the other person look like a fool, all while being very funny at the same time. If he had hit her back, even after she hit him, he would have been in trouble, either from the authorities or from the person she was looking to get to beat him up. I definitely commend him for remaining level headed.
-But the question remains: How should a man react to verbal and physical abuse from a woman?
