Poll: Do you think kicking a man's balls is a "cheap" shot? (43 votes)

Yes, no self-respected man should go for that spot in any situation 23%
If it's a one on one fight, Yes. If it's a fight for survival, No 49%
No, anything goes in a fight whether it's survival or not. Gotta do what you gotta do! 28%

let's see what people think

Yeah. It's basically cheating at a fight.

#2 Edited by the_bi99man (11047 posts) -

Depends. If it's some kind of even semi-organized fight, where both parties consent to be in the fight, as some kind of competition, then yes, obviously that's a cheap shot, and totally off-limits.

If it's a self defense kind of situation, and you're just being attacked by someone, then hell no. Anything goes, and you'd be an idiot to NOT do anything and everything to stop that motherfucker. This one time, out at a bar, some drunk dude just punched me out of nowhere, and then kept coming at me. I kicked him in the balls, then kicked him in the face after he hit the ground, then kicked him in the stomach, as hard as I possibly could, until he was coughing up blood, and then a few more times. The bartender told me "good job", and bought me a beer and shot, after calling the police to haul that dude's busted ass away.

Hit me in my nuts I won't feel it

#4 Posted by MrGeezer (56014 posts) -

I guess, but I'll do it anyway. I'm not someone who fights for unnecessary reasons. If I don't feel like I need to fight, then I don't fight. And if I feel like I need to fight, then I feel like I need to win, so I'll do any cheap ass tactic that gets the job done. I only fight out of necessity. Anything's fair as long as it saves my ass.

But this obviously doesn't apply to many other people, such as professional boxers or MMA fighters. That kind of stuff is organized with a well-established set of rules, and the rules say that you aren't allowed to kick a dude in the nuts. So don't fucking do it.

If your life is at risk no

#7 Posted by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

Nope.

If someone tries to fight me, without my consent, I'll hit them in the nuts. I don't care. And if people start chastising me about it I'll hit them in the nuts too.

Bag of balls vely bad yar.

No. In basic self defense training they teach you the 3 weakest points to the body is GET. Groin, eyes and throat.

If you are forced to defend yourself you have every right to exploit those.

Luckily they also teach you how to brace, block and counter them as well..

But honestly not much you can do after receiving a straight shot to the groin.

This. When the chips are down hitting low is the least of your worries.

In a case of self-defense? Kick them as hard as you can.

In an organized, competitive situation? Unless it's allowable by the rules, it's a no-go.

#12 Edited by jun_aka_pekto (15885 posts) -

I usually avoid fights. But, if I get into one anyway, I'll finish it as quickly as possible using every trick (including dirty ones) in the book. Fair? I don't give a shit about fairness in a fight, especially if I'm not the one who started it.

So kicking the guy in the nuts or throwing dirt on his face is fine with me. I figure the guy deserve it for wasting my time. And if he goes down, I'd slam my boot heel on his kidneys for good measure.

If you have issues with getting kicked in the nuts, you better not challenge me in RL. I don't fight fair, I fight to win. I will kick you in the nuts, punch you in the throat, DDT you on the concrete. I just don't give a shit when I am in a fight. There are no rules when you are fighting me.

I almost bite a person's thumb off once in a fight. He put his thumb in my mouth trying to fish hook me. In turn he ended up in the hospital getting his thumb sewn back to his hand. It was barely hanging on when I was finished.

One on one fisticuffs = bad form

Fight for survival = good form

#15 Posted by lumzi32 (326 posts) -

I don't fight much, but in a civilized competition where both fighters consent to, and play by the rules, I would never do it.

If some guy just came and started attacking me I probably would. I would mush his nuts into butter.

@AmazonTreeBoa: He He. I forgot to add biting in my list.

Well I have never bitten somebody in a fight before or after that time. Really, biting would have never entered my mind had he not stuck his thumb in my mouth in an attempt to pull my cheek off.

I approve of this post. Could not have said it any better.

Depends if you're in any real danger.

Self-defense warrants going for all the dirty and cheap shots.

#20 Edited by -ParaNormaN- (701 posts) -

No. In a fight, if you are down and the other person doesn't stop hitting you, a hit to the halls evens the playing field. In self defense where you are being threatened with a weapon, you do what you have to so you can live to tell the tale another day.

#21 Posted by XilePrincess (13111 posts) -

If you're having one of those 'manly' fights, wrestling, or whatever, then yeah.

But if someone attacks you, punt away. I certainly would.

#22 Posted by themajormayor (25667 posts) -

My GF punches me in the nuts all the time. And it doesn't seem like a fight for survival.

#23 Posted by CountBleck12 (22494 posts) -

In all seriousness it depends on the situation.

And you're allowing this......woman ..to get away with this?

Shame on you.

If you're in a regular fist fight with a guy & he does that yeah, that's a bitch move for sure. If it's a fight for your life that's different.

Hahaha. I can't believe I didn't think to post this.

#29 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9369 posts) -

In a fight you should never, it just proves how cheap and low of a person you are that you cant even combat the person in and honorable format and go for the easiest way out of a fight.

If a survival situation, like the person is trying to kill you with a knife or gun, then sure go for it

A person doesn't need a knife or a gun to kill. People kill with bare hands all the time. Which is exactly why I said earlier in this thread that obviously kicking the balls is off-limits if it's some kind of organized fight for competition, but it's absolutely fair game if you're being attacked unprovoked, even if the other guy doesn't have a weapon. That's why I used to carry a gun at all times, when I lived in a much worse part of a much worse town. Crackheads don't actually have weapons very often, but that won't stop me from shooting one in the face if he so much as touches me and doesn't immediately back down and run away when I pull it out.

Only a crazy person would attack someone, even with their bare hands, outside of an organized fight of some kind. And crazy people are more than capable of killing with their bare hands. Self defense is self defense. Nothing is off limits. Nothing.

This.

Schoolyard fight? Balls are off limits.

Random dude jumps you in an alley? Balls are fair game.

Not like men do.

I hear boobs are very sensitive, but if i had to defend myself, I'd punch for the jaw over boobs.

#34 Posted by ChiefvsGordon (1085 posts) -

if they had a weapon, hell no

#35 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16720 posts) -

Yes. Their breast and vagina.

#37 Posted by redstorm72 (4515 posts) -

Most of the time, yeah, its a dick move (pun intended). If somebody attacks you on the street and you are fighting for your life, then I have no problem with it, but if you are standing up to someone, picking a fight, or in some kind of organized match, then its a complete cheap shot.

#38 Posted by Brutal_Elitegs (16148 posts) -

Kick him in the balls; punch him in the throat; use elbows and knees to their full devastating effect; throw ash in his face if you're fighting on a volcano - do whatever it takes to lay that motherfucker on the ground if your life is in danger. I've never been in a fight or had any formal training so "cheap shots" are probably my ticket to survival.

#39 Edited by Serraph105 (27700 posts) -

Yes it is a cheap shot. That being said the world is a pretty tough place and the people in it don't tend to mind taking cheap shots regardless of what you personally believe so let go of your pride and take whatever shots you get, including nut shots.

#40 Posted by xerxes5678 (4702 posts) -

Of course in a legitimate fight (professional boxing, MMA, wrestling, etc), it's a serious violation of the rules. But outside of those situations, survival before honor.

#41 Posted by GamingGod999 (2930 posts) -

Like a Giant Enemy Crab, hit its weak point for massive damage!
