The idea that male was created to protect female reflects the patriarchal society we have lived in for so long. Hitting is not a good way to solve a problem, rather it should be talked out, and I think most parents try to teach their kids that. But in the case that a boy hits his sister... if they are young then it might be expected, as young children have not totally learned that you don't just hit. But even if theyre older and a girl hits a boy, it would be the exact same thing. You don't hit, that's all there is to it. Gender doesn't determine your rights to hit. Boys shouldn't hit girls, and girls shouldn't hit boys. Anyone who physically harms another person is in the wrong, regardless of the gender of either the victim or the antagonist. I don't know how else to say it haha but one last time... if anyone hits anyone, rather than "living in hell", they should be taught not to hit. I agree with PsychoDave.
well this whole question is in valid because it is assuming that everyone believes in hell and that is not the reality of the world I for one do NOT believe in god or heaven or hell so this whole question is in valid.
Its not fair, a person may have some circumstances that he has to hit his sister to take care of her. My take is that a person should be firstly asked reason to hit her sister.I am clearly not supporting this topic as well as a person to live in hell...
Boys were created to be people, just like girls. Neither was created to protect or serve the other.
I certainly agree that siblings should sort out their differences by talking things out, but a brother hitting his sister is no worse than a sister hitting her brother. No one should hit anyone, and doubly so for anyone smaller than themselves regardless of gender.
that is an incredibly sexist sentiment. the point is for men and women to be equal.
Brother can't hit his own sister. Boys can't hit girls, boys created to protect girls not to hurt them.
if the brother had problem with the sister, they should not fight. Problem can be solved with words and it cant be solved with fight
what if the brother is the victim? why not assume he hit in self-defense?
Siblings fight. my sister left a few scars on me and I fought back. claiming that a boy hitting a girl is any worse than a girl hitting a boy is incredibly sexist and out of date thinking.
he should be punished yeah, eternal torture is a bit over the top though...
as I am not Christian I cannot put absolute worth on the claim, but considering in everyday life sisters hit brothers and visa versa, I find your claim a bit harsh
I don't know anything of this brother you speak of. I do not know motives, other actions taken in life, or anything else that would warrant such an outcome. (But if he's not a Christian, I dunno man...)
While hittig your own sister is a serious offence and is very very hard to justify, near or even completely for most, hpwever living in hell is the worst punishment imaginable, and this brother might do other things that are better in total then this one sin, ven by default when considering the sin and the punishment, it seems unfair doesn't? One crime and an eternity of fiery pain and torture.
Fair enough, you were not insulting me and if my opinion can't stand up to criticism, it should probably be changed anyways.
Teaching kids that violence is an acceptable method of solving problems leads to them using it to solve other problems. If fighting is allowed at home between siblings, it may happen at school, leading to suspensions. What would be better would be to teach them how to deal with each other without the need for violence. That way as they grow and move on in life, they already have tools and skills for dealing with people and solving disagreements without needing to resort to force.
I do agree that kids should know how to defend themselves, because there are times when, even if you know better ways to deal with conflict, someone else doesn't, but it should never be the go to solution.
I didn't say a word against PsychDave, I only disagreed with his opinion u.u
clam down your on the same side just because you have different points of view doesn't need you to get angry
Bullshit. Kids should learn how to fight and impose themselves since very early. If a girl lets her brother hits her she will get used of being humiliated and she won't mind of being always submissive to men at school, at work, at relationships and everything else.
If you can't overcome your brother by force, use your intelligence. I assure you that you're better than him in this aspect.
No one should hit anyone, but to imply that the sister is defenseless is sexist. If the sister is smaller, then certainly her brother should not hit her. If the sister is hitting him, he has the right to defend himself. So much comes down to situation that I do not feel comfortable condemning someone to an eternity of fire and poking without knowing more.
Hit him back. Simple like that.
