    "Are you gonna hit me?"

    This video from outside a nightclub in Ulyanovsk, Russia, few days ago, has generated some heated discussion in the country

    The girl throws a match, seemingly not burning one, at the young man, probably her boyfriend, as she smokes, and says "What? You gonna hit me?"

    He thinks about it for a sec... and knocks her the fuck out...

    I mean, this is sadly not atypical, in a nation where the government has decriminalized domestic violence, and, by 2013 stats, a woman died every hour at the hands of her ultimate partner. And Ulyanovsk itself is a poor, violent, crime infested community where, in some neighborhoods, kids already join gangs at Junior (Grade 1-3) school levels... This kind of behavior is pretty much to be expected there. I especially love how he and his friend than affectionately pick the girl back up from the ground... "If he beats you, it means he cares about/loves you.", a popular saying of Russian women since the Middle Ages, showing just how deeply they tend to accept, rationalize and internalize abuse from males...

    But what some also talk about, is that she taunted him first. Threw a match at him. What if it was still lit? Could have set the poor sod on fire... That's why some refuse to blame him for reacting as he had.

    I do though. Raising a hand on a woman is never okay IMHO

    This video, to me, just shows the continuing degradation of Russian society. Particularly, sadly, the youth...
    Thanks from Hollywood

    Damn.

    I would have walked up behind that guy and cold cocked him in the back of the head for that.

    Honestly, me too. Of course then, that would just start a fucking brawl, because all his buddies would jump you (and thugs like this tend to roll in big packs over there...)

    Doesn't matter, they can kick my ass, its the principle of it.

    That dude is a fucking violent asshole.

    I can see him running down the street playing the knockout game.

    I love this payback video:

    Russia just fucking shocks me lately... Just, how angry and nasty people get there.

    Here is another video from October 9th; in Bashkortostan

    This guy apparently learned his wife been cheating on him. So, he came one day, with a friend, and first beat the lover nearly to death, you can see him later in the video, lying on the floor, covered in blood; and beat her too, and filmed it all. Police investigating now. And many men supporting him...

    Such barbarity... I see this shit, I am glad I don't live there anymore, that my two young sons won't grow up there.

    My older one is, however... I pray he won't turn into... that... as an adult.

    Happened to me. I didn't think it could. I had the same attitude, what, are you going to hit me? SLAM against the wall. There was my answer.

    Glad you got away,Sassy.

    I am sure I aggravated my husband many times because I have always been headstrong. He would never have dreamed of hitting me. Women are not perfect either, but that is wrong and escalates.

    My Sassy attitude did not help me on that day. Luckily I did have EQ. I became conciliatory immediately. Teen magazine even had taught patterns of abusive men! I said oh I am so sorry I made you mad. Then he cried and apologized and said the standard I love you so much shit. I said 'I know, baby, I know'. (vomiting in my mouth). I got him out eventually with a promise to see him the next day, and then all the gates came down around me. Dad, friends, everyone. 'Don't you go near her again, motherfucker'. He got it from legal, and the GD football team of my HS. (I was only 18). The pussy didn't ever show up after the knew he'd have more facing him than an 18 year old girl to smack around.

    Very smart girl! That is the pattern of abuse. Oh,you know I love you, but the next time is worse.

    I guess I was just thinking there are abusive women,too.

    But you did the absolute right thing. You outwitted him. And,you had support. Great!
    Thanks from The Man
