    As a guy, its's just something I don't expect. Seriously, I can't think of too many incidents where I've personally witnessed women physically duking it out. Maybe I don't get out much these days but when I had a penchant for doing so, it was a rare moment indeed to see women fight. I'll make a generality based on my experiences and say that verbal jousting between the fair sex is little more common than fisticuffs.

    I don't know why but when women fight it piques my interest. Maybe it's because I'm not used to directing expletives to a female in such a fashion that would make Roseanne Barr blush, and the novelty appeals to my humorous side. Likewise the physical battles do the same but also that also arouses the senses, if you know what I mean. Nothing like two beautiful women ripping the clothes off each other. Still, I wouldn't pay to watch women box or wrestle for that matter, unless it was in a giant bowl of Jello. So for me it is purely funny and somewhat sexual to witness such duels.

    Guys, how do you feel when women fight over you? Do you continue to drink your beer, eat some more wings or go and break it up. I can't think of a single instance where I've seen the object of attention play the peacemaker. Men love to watch or listen as the case may be. It has some kind of erotic effect on men and we can't wait to comfort the winner or loser. Sorry gals if this sounds chauvinistic. It's just personal observation.

    As for the combatants, I can't speak for them. Perhaps our female contingent can fill us in.

    This made me laugh. I have a hard enough time just getting one woman to be interested in me, let alone two at the same time.

    I can only recall witnessing one fistfight between females. I was about 12 years old and so were the girls. It wasn't much of a fight, and I have no idea what it was about. I recall hearing about others, but I did not see them.

    It is hard for me to imagine grown women throwing fists, but I guess it happens, especially when alcohol is involved.

    I have seen videos of girls/women fighting on the internet (it seems every kid now has a cell phone that can take videos...).

    Yeah... I suppose the thought of women fist fighting kind of intrigues me. Although I wouldn't want either to get seriously hurt.

    And who doesn't like the thought of a mouthy woman (or man) taking a punch to the mouth...?

    Cheers

    For most animal species, females face greater reproductive costs from injury than males do. When it comes to competing for mates, a male who takes the right risks and wins out takes all - the status, the resources, the girls. Meanwhile all the other wimps get practically nothing. Not only do females usually not have to fight as much to get a mate, but if they get injured, it could seriously reduce their ability to have/care for their offspring in the future. And if they already have offspring in tow, they face potential injury and death as well.

    Human ancestors were not much different, so we tend to have the same behavioral patterns. Women tend to use indirect aggression more - gossiping, back biting, rumor spreading, etc. If done right, you can hurt your opponent's social status without them ever knowing who is responsible for it.

    So, if two females do decide to duke it out, that usually means the stakes are pretty high. Studies on violent crime rates among women, for example, have shown that women in poorer areas are much likely to commit direct physical aggression. This is probably because most of the men in the area are ridiculously poor, in jail, on drugs, or are undesirable as mates in some other way. So when a suitable man finally does show up, he's worth fighting for.

    I'm not entirely sure why men find girl-fights so exciting, though. Maybe because there is an intuitive understanding that, when women physically fight, they really REALLY want whatever it is they're fighting over, and if that fight is over a guy - well, it's rare to see a girl get as excited about getting laid as men usually are. 8)

    Of course there's money to be made in it. Ever heard of the WWE Divas? And they're always looking for more women to recruit.
