Yes, evolution and civilization.

Physical violence and losing control and freaking out is not a good way to get power in a complicated world like ours. So we watch and learn.
We try to get influence in a way that saves resources, physical and mental.
We call it an intelligent solution.

Non-violent intelligent solutions are most beneficial in the long run so they become more and more frequent.

I think the physical violence is mostly due to emotional release along with drinking and drugs so some of it is short-term and some is long-term. In terms of it being a solution, it depends on what the goal is.

Not to forget the goal of intimidating the other party and thus of getting what one wants quickly and effectively.

which feminists have argued this?

if yu are going to generalize feminism, i think it would be more accurate to say that in feminist view, male behavior (e.g. pushy, etc) is itself a problem

Which women? Women of our times or from 2000 years ago? Women from Australia or from Congo? From urban or rural areas? From the pastor's family or the town's butcher family?

The question is ridiculous. The answer will always be a fallacious generalization.

Are you suggesting that it happens all the time in many different areas? The question is straightforward.

Are you suggesting that it will come as news for you that any people can fight somewhere, anywhere, any time? And that they have actually done so?

A man must know when to fight and when to surrender. For example, if a man is fighting with a cute young blonde he must know when to surrender and give her a chance to admit and apologize for her hostile attitude. This is a beneficial skill and when done right assures a pleasant evening.

What if the blonde were in the right and what if she weren't cute and young?

Nop. You can take that as confirmation of how ridiculous is the question that started the thread.

My opinion about the ridiculousness of the question, whether it pleases you or not, has an argument. Your opinion about my opinion, not.

The argument is implicit which is too deep for you to figure out.
