It Is Never Ok

I don’t care who you are, what your ethnicity, race or religion, your education or lack there of, how much money you have or don’t have, your sexual orientation or gender, what your former partners or your family put up with from you in the past, your cognitive abilities–my former clients with developmental disabilities with IQ’s of 70 and lower included: It is NEVER ok to put your hands on another person by grabbing, hitting, punching, slapping, shoving, “restraining” out of anger or to make them “act right.” EVER. No matter what they say, or how they say it, or if they just piss you off. It is NEVER ok.  
Everyone has a right to speak his or her mind whether you agree with it or not. Everyone has a right to live in an environment where they are respected and not cowed to another’s way of thinking and being for fear of physical retribution which will in turn, be blamed on them for being who they are and saying what someone else does not want to hear, not on the person who is inappropriately putting his or her hands in another human being.
