Trope-a-Day: Would Hit a Girl

Would Hit A Girl: Played straight in the Empire, since they never invented that particular double standard in the first place (of course, by their regular social standards, it’s not acceptable to hit anybody outwith special circumstances mostly involving rights violations, which may also explain why it’s universally acceptable when you are in those circumstances), and also because of the possibly-related fact that the women are just as appallingly lethal as the men.

Yes, even unarmed.
