* In Series/{{Becker}}, at one point a woman with a history of serious violence is reported to be targeting Reggie by Bob (at the partial encouragement of Bob). It later transpires that the woman has no ill-will towards Reggie, and was simply talking herself up in order to impress Bob into a relationship - he has no interest in her. Reggie instructs the woman to effectively bully Bob into a relationship. Later on, we see her seemingly physically forcing Bob into a date, in which he is clearly unwilling and crying, all PlayedForLaughs. While Bob is hardly an innocent victim, if the genders were reversed it would be downright horrifying.

As the description on the main page notes, it's not this trope if it's people of both genders abusing the Butt Monkey.
* In ''Series/TheMentalist'' it's DoubleStandard: Abuse, Anyone On Jane. For example, Lisbon punching Jane in the nose after [[spoiler:he made her believe she was going to die]] is treated as fine, women slapping Jane or throwing things at him after he's done something particularly bad is fine, and most of the men who punch him are excused. It's hard to imagine the show turning a female character into an AcceptableTarget for physical abuse in the same way, or the audience being okay with it.

** It also comes up in-universe. In the case of rape, most of the female perps prey on younger males, and if anyone outside SVU comments on it, expect at least a few mentions of how "lucky" the victim is to be having sex with a hot older woman. There's one episode where a teenage boy is raped by a male coach who catfished him by posing as a sexy female teacher known for having sex with her students. His own parents decide not to let him testify once it comes out that he was victimized by a man, specifically because if it had been a woman "that would be one thing, but..." .

Grammar.
* Subverted in the ''Series/{{Angel}}'' episode, ''Sanctuary''. Buffy is hunting Faith and intending to kill her, however Angel is protecting her so Buffy punches him. After he ignores the first blow Buffy tries to punch him again, but Angel blocks and punches her back. Buffy is almost too shocked to speak, but when she later tries to throw the fact that he hit her in his face during a different argument, Angel calls her out on this trope, pointing out that she both threw the first punch, and is stronger than him.

*** The entire show seems to thrive on [[WithFriendsLikeThese everyone laughing when a friend is hurt]], so it's not just this trope.

** This might be [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in context by the time period in which Peggy was active, as a woman attacking a man was considered a shameful novelty and an embarrassment to the man, and the fact that the men she did this to were often if not always military, marking them amongst the most hardened and prideful of men in any time period. Thus it makes sense that these men wouldn't want to have Peggy reprimanded for beating them up, as the obvious first step to that would be ''officially admitting that she beat them up''.
