Observing a fight – differences with age

There are an amazing amount of polls with the theme of fighting and dominance on this site. A remarkable lack of sympathy with losers are also prevalent. Most seems to be on schoolground settings. It is known that watching fights are entertaining and even sexually arousing to onlookers, with the conclusion as the best part. I wish to know if there are differences in gender perceptions and if it alter with age. This poll looks at age differences, look out for another one on gender (see first question). The situation is: 2 boys or men fought, and one is helplessly stuck in a painful submission hold, and has to submit / give up / tap out / cry uncle / beg for mercy. An audience is present. The contestants can be of equal strength and the dispute is a matter of their own business. No one is generally unpopular or a jerk, because the onlookers' opinion and / or alignment with the contestants can have an influence on their perception of the event. I mention males since they physically fight the most, but the contestants can also be females.
Please first read and answer the poll Observing a fight – gender differences. The first 3 questions run along the vein, from the loser to be treated well; to; be treated very cruelly. In order to not in a cumbersome manner repeat the questions, let us just shorten the opinion from a scale 1=treated well to 5=treated very cruelly. Cast your vote if you are in the age group specified.

Do you believe in the theory that the strong must dominate the weak, like most animals do?
Hell no, we may technically be animals but we are on a higher level and we have culture and we are civilized
Oh yes. We are simply animals. We can't get away from our instincts. Dominance is necessary to maintain order in society.
