* The Music/{{Rihanna}} song "Man Down" off her Loud Album - about a woman killing a man with a gun - was met with a backlash from the male audience. At the same time, the female audience defended the song and celebrated it. This was especially the case, because of the attack music star ChrisBrown, inflicted on her in real life still being on woman's minds. The song was a huge hit. In the music video the woman kills the man after he rapes her. It's hard to imagine a man killing his female rapist being as highly regarded.

* [[http://www.popmatters.com/column/139375-fit-to-be-tied-countrys-angry-women/ An article here]] notes the popularity of "revenge songs" in county music, where after a bad breakup or catching the boyfriend cheating, the singer kidnaps, [[BoundAndGagged ties and gags]], or even flat-out ''murders'' the guy, with the actions often PlayedForLaughs. Chances are if a male singer made a video where he tied up and gagged an ex-girlfriend or attempted to kill her, he would be justifiably condemned by the public.

** Another Taylor Swift exemple: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-ORhEE9VVg&ab_channel=TaylorSwiftVEVO Blank Space]]" features a woman throwing a vase at her boyfriend, destroying his clothes, his car, dropping his cellphone in the water. She also destroys his portrait violently with scissors, even assaulting him physically at some point. After all the abuse, the man leaves and is replaced by another one, implying it's going to start all over again. Let's also note that the song includes the lyrics "Boys only want love if it's torture". If the genders were reversed, there would have been an uproar after the song came out.

* Music/BrunoMars's "Grenade" revolves around the singer being in a very unhealthy relationship with a girl who hurts him and is unfaithful to him. No matter what she does to him, he still loves her and longs to have his feelings returned. The music has a significantly dark DownerEnding where Bruno walks out onto train tracks and waits for a train to hit him.
