** This case might be {{justified|Trope}} by the setting and time period. Good luck searching for a military man in TheForties to admit he's been beaten by a woman, or getting a high-ranking agent and military supervisor taken down for offenses that no one wants to acknowledge even happened, let alone prove. This only looks worse on Peggy, by the way, since she's supposed to be one of the good guys, but the inaction isn't unrealistic.

* In ''Film/TheManFromUNCLE2015'', Gaby slaps Illya twice after convincing him to dance with her and then escalates the situation by tackling him the man to the ground when he protests. There is no reason or justification for her behaviour whatsoever, and the scene is PlayedForLaughs.

* Feminists would have erupted if sexes had been switched during the reunion scene between Thor and Jane Foster in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. Despite the first ''Film/{{Thor}}'' film establishing her team's knowledge that the Bifröst Bridge had been destroyed at the end of his battle with Loki, then ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' having the heroes' battle with the Chitauri made public news (to which she would've had to realize that someone had sent him there with full focus on stopping the threat), her first reaction to seeing Thor again was to slap him twice demanding to know where he was because his absence was hard on her.

* Try to imagine the scene in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' where Peggy Carter punches a man to ground with genders reversed. Same thing applies to the scene where she shoots at Captain America. * Feminists would have erupted if sexes had been switched during the reunion scene between Thor and Jane Foster in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''.

* Subverted in ''WebVideo/TheGamersNaturalOne''. Two masked men grab Ryan in an alley, throw a hood over his head, toss him into the trunk of their car, and drive off with him. He is later seen tied up at a gaming table because, as it turns out, this is all part of a trial to see if he can game, and thereby prove himself worthy to marry Monica. Ryan angrily calls Monica out for what she did, and she apologizes. When Ryan says he will expect "reparations" from her, Monica meekly agrees - and she smiles when he specifies that the reparations will be of a "kinky" nature. Although the film does not attempt to justify Monica's actions, the fact remains that a man who participated in his girlfriend's ''kidnapping'' would never have gotten off so lightly. More than likely, the audience would expect her to dump him immediately, or have serious trust issues with him. At the very least, it would take a lot more than an apology and some make-up sex to get him off the hook.

* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': Played with--Sgt. Calhoun provides Felix with a solitary GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slap while they are stuck in the [[QuicksandSucks NesquikSand]], which reveals that the "vines" they can't reach are actually Laffy Taffy that happen to find the idea of Calhoun hitting Felix hilarious. Calhoun does not, however, and even after Felix shows he can fix his injuries by [[ItMakesSenseInContext hitting himself in the face with his magic hammer]], she is still reluctant, and Felix has to ''convince'' her to continue just so that the Laffy Taffies will reach down to a point where they can grab them. So while the circumstances are extraordinary and the abuse is not presented as "okay," try to imagine the same situation being PlayedForLaughs with the genders swapped; it would come across far darker and inappropriate for a children's movie.

* Played Straight to the point of parody in ''Film/DinnerForSchmucks''. Darla is a psychotic {{Yandere}} who stalks Tim, forces herself on him and destroys both his apartment and car, with the latter happening in public. [[KarmaHoudini At no point does she ever get punished for her atrocious behavior]].
