A women’s magazine that tends to approach issues from a more conservative, common-sense stance accidentally embraced some liberal thinking this week. Whoops!In an almost-ratioed tweet posted Saturday, Evie Magazine called for normalizing the slapping of men “when they’ve crossed the line,” whatever that means.Look at the tweet below: (Tweet) What in the name of liberal feminists was THAT!?The tweet provoked a spate of angry replies from incensed men. Look: (Tweets) The problem, besides Evie Magazine’s promotion of violence, is that there is no shared definition of what it means to cross the line.When now-deceased former President George H.W. Bush, then 90 years old and wheelchair-bound,

What you need to "normalize" is the virtue of self control regarding sex. Women don't need your permission to protect themselves. My daughter punched an executive where she worked right in the face when he tried to kiss her in a stairwell. Maybe women's mags should stop promoting the debasement of women through casual sex without consequences to the horny men who believe in "choice!"

I've advocated "small violence" like this for years. I'd like to see ol' Chester go home after the office party to explain the bright red hand print on his cheek to his dear wife... Same goes for the bully or jerk who deserves a punch in the nose. There ought to be room in the laws to allow that. Don't need a Colt .45 to keep the peace.

I've no problem with long as I can now slap a woman for being snarky, condescending, irrational, unreasonable, entitled. Oh, and Karen's, I want to slap Karen's.

#4 calls to mind plenty of old movies shown on TCM where the guy gives the dame a slap. WIsh I could remember the title but I saw one a few days ago and he wasn't fooling! She took it in stride, exiting the room. I'm not longing for a return to that, obviously, but things sure have changed.

Women have slapped men in the face for decades for not taking no for an answer. Go back to the movies from 1930 through 2000. However, if it is more than a slap or not deserved, the woman should expect to be treated to some of the same physicality.

How do you define 'crossing the line'? Everyone has a different interpretation. A vendor at my big box retailer made a very inappropriate comment. I responded with 'I'm a woman of faith. I would never do that.' Now, I choose to have minimal contact with him. I will jeopardize his job or mine.

#6, in the early 1930s, there was no agency to provide moral standards/decency in Hollywod. Thus, the slapping and hitting of men by women, and women by men. Jimmy Cagney's melon into the face of the woman was probably from that era. I am 82 years old, and was never slapped by a woman. But I probably should have been - or maybe I was deficient in my courtship attempts. I would have appreciated some guidance in those days. As for politicians, I suspect that their ham-handed attempts at seduction work often enough to continue. (Little Andrew Cuomo is just pathetic in his words and deeds. The fact that he has the face of a chimpanzee doesn't help maters, either. The late Rush Limbaugh always said politics is Hollywod for ugly people.)

Hmmm. I thought this always has been normal, although there may be some clarification of what "crossing the line" means. If it means inappropriate touching, heck yes, swat the guy, HARD. If they mean some random nothing, and the crazy feminists seem to imagine more than actually is there sometimes, maybe not.

Women have been slapping men's faces for Centuries when they were "Fresh" as they called it in my day! We didn't need permission. We just knew it was the way to get the message across to the "Offender" that he had overstepped! It worked! Of course, in my day, women could do that without fearing they would be slapped back (men had good manners back then). Now days a woman who slaps a man might knocked off her feet because there is a certain class of men who were never taught never to hit a woman for any reason. I taught my son that in the 60's, and believe me, he wanted to clock his two older sisters who teased him all the time. But he didn't! He knew it was wrong and he knew he was four years younger, but still much stronger than they were because, well, back then girls were considered somewhat Delicate. Now you can't even tell if the "Girl" is really a "Girl"! So, if the guy made an unwanted pass to someone he THOUGHT was a girl, I guess there might be a little leeway in the "don't hit a girl" Rule!

Nope! If women can slap men, then men can slap women, and that's not good in either direction. I'm sick of double standards when they benefit only women but demands for "equality" when that benefits only women. If Feminazis demand equality in everything else, they they better be prepared to get slapped back when they decide to hit men. Hypocrisy abounds.

I agree with #12. The Crocodile Dundee Verification Method may be a good prelude to a righteous butt kicking. A lady-like slap can be accepted as long as it isn't at the end of a well delivered right cross. These liberal fantasies have to be nipped in the... um..."bud."

Having slapped a man in the face for "getting fresh" as we always called it, I had no idea I needed anyone's permission. And if a cad chooses to get handsy with this married women or her daughter and she responds with a righteous smack in the face, should he decide to reciprocate, my husband and grown son will make short working him. We protect good, God fearing women in the South!!

Long as men can slap back,'s fine. I'm from the old school where a woman could stop bad behavior cold with just a look. Today's entitled women think they have a right to rule everything, but have fun feministas. The TG's are coming, and they get to rule over you in the power pyramid.

Men who “cross the line” have already signaled to the woman they are dangerous. Better to take yourself out of the situation ASAP, than to set off a confrontation that could escalate rapidly, and not in the woman’s favor. Physical violence is a place to go only as a last resort.

Back in prehistoric days, 1960 to be exact, I was in 7th grade when a boy and girl kind of got into it at lunch recess. When we were back in class, our teacher, Sister Marcellus said...'A gentleman never hits a lady, even when the lady isn't a being a lady.' Never forgot that, but I don't think that necessarily holds true now. I wouldn't hit a man unless he was actually trying to cause me physical harm.

I've never slapped a man in the face for inappropriate behavior, but when I worked at a hotel decades ago and the Persian GM and his buddies came by to make some fresh remarks about me, I told them I had four brothers who would love to defend my honor if they made the same mistake again. That was the last of inappropriate remarks in a workplace setting.

All too many of these rich hags work to take away my right to defend myself with a bit of lead and gunpowder and I’d just as soon expend my slapping energy on their flaccid backsides for Karening my 2nd Amendment rather than blowing off a man who decides to tell a tasteless joke or two...or steal a kiss.

This is like "I bust the windows outcha car" a line from a song my daughter listened to around 2008. The song was about a dude cheating on his "girlfriend" not his wife. She repays him by busting his car windows. She commits a criminal act, but he hurt her. I told my daughter that's a good way for a girl to get herself killed by a boyfriend. Stupid song. Leftists have set women back so far. You can't slap a man for treating you like a ho when you act like one.

President Joe Biden has introduced a gargantuan spending bill ostensibly aimed at shoring up and expanding America’s crumbling infrastructure, but as usual, there are a lot of things in the measure completely unrelated to ‘infrastructure.’To be sure, the measure would spend hundreds of billions on roads, bridges, airports, and so forth. In fact, a Washington Post analysis found that the bill earmarks $650 billion for those kinds of projects.But again, that’s just $650 billion out of $2.2 trillion. So — if this is an ‘infrastructure’ spending bill, where is the other two-thirds of the money (that we don’t have) going?

A new poll indicates that Americans are giving President Biden a big thumbs up on dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.But when it comes to the divisive issue of immigration and border security, the survey suggests that the president's approval rating plummets. Just a third of Americans questioned in an NPR/Marist poll released on Tuesday say they approve of Biden's handling of the issue of immigration, with 53% saying they disapprove of his performance.
