I actually have come around to your side

after reading all that. Yes, people, unequivocally, should have the right to defend themselves. My point is that going to a club is voluntary. If a girl goes to a club, wearing something provocative, at a hip place in the city with a lot of people, she's bound to get touched at least once in a manner that would be deemed inappropriate in everyday life. That's not going to change, and I don't think a proper reaction is to knock someone in the face. It's like saying someone who accidentally walked into the wrong house he thought was his friends, started apologizing to the owner, and the owner shot him anyway. Under the law in some states the owner is within his right to do that to a trespasser, but it doesn't make it right.
