    I know other options:

    "Sopla Nuca"
    "Escupir el asado"

    For her:

    "p*t@! no te quiero volver a ver cerca de mi novio."

    For him:

    a good kick in the ass and continue with your life.

    "Te quemo": is a street way of saying 'I will shoot you' you can change it for "te corto" I will cut you.


    I agree with @vicente You might want to find a better one, there are plenty fish in the pond.
    Might be a bit too gangsta, lol

    Knowing that the subject has changed, "Fight back a woman who slept with your boyfriend" could be translated as:
    - Pelearle a una mujer que durmió con tu novio (Other alternatives of the beginning, Pelear con, Luchar con, Darle Pelea)
    - Devolverselá a una mina que se acostó con tu novio (Devolver as in giving back to her, and "mina" as a name for woman like "broads")

    Those are from the top of my head.

    En mi humilde opinión, yo no gastaría mi tiempo ni mi energía en una mujer que no conoces (eso intuyo por la información que has brindado).

    Para el caso de las personas que sí tienen una relación sólida contigo, como es el caso de tu pareja, primero hablaría del tema con mi analista (tienes uno, ¿no?). Gritar no suma si nadie te escucha.

    Después de reflexionar con el analista y una vez que has tomado una decisión, hablaría en el mismo idioma y tono de voz (en lo posible) con tu pareja.

    La otra no existe, ni existió, ni en español ni en inglés ni en ningún idioma. Quizás ni llegaron a hablar... ¿Cómo vas a hablarle tú?

    Nuestra sociedad está viviendo un momento realmente histórico en lo que a defensa de los derechos de la mujer se refiere. Finalmente se puede hablar. Finalmente se pueden divulgar los múltiples abusos que nadie vio nunca.

    Imagino que esta situación que ha ganado gran popularidad por su espontaneidad sorprende a más de uno y a más de una...

    Pero no es ninguna noticia, siempre existió y siempre se ocultó. Es más, la víctima terminaba teniendo la culpa por lo que había ocurrido. Una aberración lógica.

    Me parece que la comenzó este thread buscaba algo para traducción de una novela, o trabajo o sátira o teatro.
    Bah.. Intuyo.

    Más cuando cambió el asunto del mensaje. Podemos estar frente a frente con una traductora que busca, pícaramente, opciones para la frase que quiere.

    Dicho sea de paso sumo una más.

    "Tomatelá! Que no te vea otra vez con mi novio roba-maridos!"
    (Although 'marido' means husband, the phrase "roba-marido" is more common than 'roba-novio', also it has a better ring to it)
