A MAN headbutted a woman during a row about a meal, Barnsley Magistrates’ Court was told.

Matthew Margison, 26, left Carina Hall with a cut on the bridge of her nose, said Julie Grant, prosecuting.

She said the couple ended a relationship when Margison went to Australia but started seeing each other when he got back.

Mrs Grant added that Margison said during police questioning that he retaliated after being slapped.

Margison, of White Lodge, Barnsley Road, Silkstone, admitted assault.

Brian Bushell, defending, said he would put Margison’s side of the story when he is sentenced on December 30.

Margison was granted conditional bail.

Little extreme headbutt for a slap. I don't really understand how this shit works. I've had arguments, been slapped, scratched, punched had hair pulled out etc by my ex-wife but never once did I retaliate. In fact I've never hit a woman in my life and god knows I've had provocation, however that is the way I was raised. Men do not hit women...END OF!

I wud like to think we live in an equal rights world and that if a woman hits a man she deserves it bk I agree with the above a headbutt is a bit harsh if she slapped him but she can hardly play the victim when she gets it bk is she also gettin done for assault? Doubt it some women think its acceptable to hit men when it is not it is just as bad as a man hittin a women

Hitting someone is wrong, full stop. Women have nurtured the myth that its fine for them to hit men without expecting to get hit back. As a man, say something a woman finds insulting and a slap in retaliation is seen as ok, and men are supposed to take it and walk away. I've seen women exploit this on loads of occasions especially when drunk, hitting a man and chasing him down when he tries to leave and hitting him more. If he turned around and smacked her to stop hwr hitting him, he's the bad guy. Ridiculous gender inequality when you think about it. It's up to women to get their heads around the fact that its not ok to hit men either under any circumstances. Most men have got the message that hitting women is wrong, although most have missed the message that hitting men is also wrong. So generally it seems violent women are the worst perpetrators, as they see hitting either men or women as fine. Discuss.

Headbutting is classed as assault with a deadly weapon. No one ever died from a slap. Severe head injuries can be caused by head butting as well as death. It shouldn't be used on anyone let alone a woman!!!!

NO MAN OR WOMAN SHOULD HIT OR BE HIT that not fair does not matter what the fell out over it should never lead to violence at all what gives anybody a right to use their body as a weapon x

Love how people believe everything they read!!!! It wasn't even over a meal think some people need to get there facts right!! No man should hit a women and vise versa, he needs to grow a pair and grow up, and has for all of you with your pathetic comments take a step back and think would you like reading things like this if it was you??? If the story was told properly and you knew what went off you wouldn't be making comments like you are!! And yes I am angry because she's my sister!
