Hitting anyone should be based on actual defense and threat level. As most girls are a lot weaker than most men, it's rare that a man is actually threatened and needs to defend himself by striking. However, if a woman is genuinely a threat and the man really needs to defend himself, he should absolutely hit her back. A man should not be beaten simply because he's not supposed to hit a woman. Nearly 1% of American men have reported being victims of domestic violence in the last year - 7.4% in their lifetime. It happens. So if a man can and needs to defend himself, he should. It's also sexist to say a man should never hit a woman.
The problem with advocating that kind of equality, though, is the likelihood of some men taking it as an excuse to hit women.
