This is always a topic of discussion when you have people who are arguing/feuding. I haven’t been in too many encounters where I’m at the blows with someone but I always had the attitude that you can say whatever you want about me but leave my family out of it.
I think that’s why I never liked “yo mama” jokes because I wasn’t having it. Is it suppose to be all fun? Yes. However, I’ve always felt some jokes had truth to it so in efforts to not unleash my temper, I decided I wasn’t going to participate in that lol 🤷🏾♀️.
Now, I know for some, they can ignore words about their family but have an issue if you disrespect their manhood/womanhood or their money. I agree those are below the belt references as well. Then again, you have some that do not care. They believe that nothing is off limits when going for the attack against you.
What are your thoughts friends? What do you consider below the belt or things that are off limits when you are fighting? Now this doesn’t only mean against an enemy, but this can be heated discussions with a significant other, friends, family, co-workers etc.. Let me know 🙃☺️
Thank you for reading!

I agree with you wholeheartedly that there is truth to every joke thats why sometimes jokes escalate to a feud or a fight especially when a joke is made about something you can not change (Physical appearance, family, etc.) I feel when arguing/feuding, “below the belt” can be considered anything that disrespects the other on a personal level and with intent to hurt. For example, insulting/bringing family into it or “throwing something in someone’s face” that was shared in confidence.

This is so true! This is exactly why I don’t like to argue with people. People to argue to be fair. They argue to hurt.
