What is your approach to violence? Personally I think its a thing you should only sort to in the most critical situations. Like if your gf is going to get raped or your littlebro is getting kidnapped. Idiots who goes berserk because of the slightest verbal insults should have their legs shaved
My approach to violence, or how often I resort to violence?
If it's latter, well, I am prone to random bouts of anger and aggression, but it's never unprovoked. I don't go off on somebody for being rude (at least not physically), but I wouldn't just stand there if a girl decided to get up in my face. (By the way, I'm female, not some crazy male woman-beater.)
The extremity comes and goes. For the past 2 years or so, I've been fairly passive, but just recently it's been making a strong comeback. I've yet to take it out on another person, though.
Also, I wouldn't mind having someone shave my legs for me. One less thing I have to put effort into doing. :P

I don't think I have actually fought with someone since I was about twelve (brother not included =p).
On the personal level, I believe violence is to be avoided at all costs - the exception being self-defence, or the direct defence of others.
Only this weekend a chav tried it on with me .. I usually try to talk my way out of it but this time, this guy was havin none of it . he wanted to fight.. "why wont ya hit me mate? " he said saw him going to swing for me and justly hit him first in the stomach and then grabbed his heda and rammed it into my knee then while he was down i scarpered .. Its all about buying yourself time.. If there had been people around i would have spoken loudly so they could hear saying "LISTEN, I DONT WANT A FIGHT" When it came to blows i am also very loud and i try to be as intimidating as i can . Then if i can get away i can /
Violence doesn't really solve anything.
But when you have some cocky teenager in your face then I see no problem in using aggression to tell him to back off. Only the other week I had some chav walk up to me and started screaming all manner of obscenities in my face. I told him politely to back off as not only was I not in the mood, but I was also in somewhat of a rush. After gently pushing him aside and continuing to walk down the path, I was shoved forward and the chav had followed me down. I was not going to stand for this so slammed him against the fence to the left of me and told me not to follow me further or there will be Hell to pay. He listened, and that was that.
In general, I try to avoid using violence when possible and instead opt to use mind over matter. However, I always find that upon returning home I tend to smash my pillow to oblivion.
I accept violence only for self-defence and protection for others, as a last resort. Otherwise it's not acceptable in normal life situations (as waging war is violence too more or less).

i'm only violent when i deem it necessary (someone trying to rape my gf results in instant kill switch) i've only been in one fight and it wasn't very long they swung i moved and knocked the breath out of them, it stopped pretty quick cause after that i left.
I agree that violence is only for self defense. So, if a guy's trying to rape your GF, shoot you, stab you, blow up your best friend's house, ect., I deem it acceptable to crack his neck and beat the crap out of him.
...Because that would be uncivil?
