It's a question because when you've experienced abuse you have to be able to answer it in a way that heals. Getting feedback from from other victims who have recovered or, as you posted, people who have not been abused reflect the absurdity of the idea and give us a grounding point for what is considered healthy.

No, it's never OK to hit your partner. There are always other options to handle your emotions. A person who abuses has those options.
