I learned early

there are rules on punching people

at school I found

you cannot hit weaker younger disabled kids

but they can & will hit you

ditto for teachers

hit a teacher & you are out of the school

but a quiet corridor closed room

& accidents slips will happen

the police much the same

you are helping them with their inquiries

& any force on your part

will be returned by the magical power of three

or death

it is not acceptable to hit girls

though girls will slap scratch pull hair throw stuff

& thump you where it hurts

Disney has taught them this is all ok

when your parents hit you

it is of course for your own good

but any defensive move

is not
