    I doubt it mate, I've dabbled in all sorts of crazy shenanigans in my time and know which way my bread is buttered haha!

    My (hairdresser) missus has quite the social circle of good looking gay lads that I'm sure would appreciate the offer

    Yes, but there's sticking your nose in someone elses business and then there is not being prepared to just walk on by while something really wrong is going on...

    Like I said I've gotten involved in the past when some arsehile was beating a woman in the street in front of me...maybe not my business but am I fuck going to walk past and allow a woman to be beaten - I'll make it my business if it's relatively safe to do so (ie one cowardly wonan beater)

    Which is not always a bad thing.

    And? Living in Thailand doesn't change the fact that sometimes sticking your nose into other people's business is the right thing to do.

    Cowardice is hardly the best place from which to generalize rules of behaviour.

    discretion and common sense have bigger roles to play in a foreign culture, however...

    If you're not going to stand up for a stranger, you're not going to stand up for a stranger, tomcat, and you can find any number of appealing justifications for that stance.

    As others have said, there's not much point taking on a gang but if a woman is being hit (or in danger of being hit) and there's at least a fair chance of coming out on top, should your peace-making skills not be up to par, I think you have a responsibility to act and failing to act is a sign of moral weakness.

    I would. But this is about women. Perhaps you didn't notice the thread title. It's 'Thais beating up their wifes in public'.

    western-oriented sexist outrage
    Grow up, tomcat.

    I did see a Thai guy once beating a female in the street a while back
    I told him to stop and that it was a terrible for a man to beat a woman
    I explained to him why males shouldnt attack females
    He then explained to me what a bitch she was and what she had done
    OK, fair enough .
    Carry on, beating well deserved

    And you'll be sitting at home, cuddling up to your personal cowardice and moral failure. Such is the world.

    That's right tomcat, your personal failings are actually my racism.

    I do believe that you are being sexist , saying that its morally wrong to attack a female , but quite acceptable to attack a male .
    I believe in female equality and they equally deserve a slap, as any man would also deserve one

    Fuck poking my nose into someones argument. Specially an angry Thai guy in Thailand. You simply will never be able to bring him round to it being "not the morally wrong thing to do" ..leave it alone and mind your own fucking business.

    Will she thank you for your heroics?... Hell no.

    Some real super heroes on this thread.
    I hate woman beaters but get real will you.

    So a Thai guy stopped beating the woman so that he could explain to you in English why he was beating her? You only hear his side of the story and give the OK to carry on. You are a complete and utter liar ya fruit cake.
