* Exaggerated in the music video for Otoboke Beavers' [[https://youtu.be/wyHYb7LdrF0 "Ikezu (Mean)"]], which is 19 seconds a girl slugging her boyfriend unconscious while yelling at him for not telling her when he was coming home the previous night. It's PlayedForLaughs, though, as the beatings are interspersed with her crying and shaking her fist [[ArtShift in a chibi art style]], and the video ends with the pair hugging it out.

* Music/GirlsAloud's video "The Show" features the girls running a beauty parlour with male clients. They intentionally play pranks on the men; Nicola uses fake tan to write insulting messages on their backs, Sarah gives them all bad haircuts, Nadine plays with them under the pretence of giving facials, and Cheryl is the worst of all - intentionally making body waxing as painful as possible (never mind the serious damage doing it wrong could cause). Imagine this video being filmed with men doing this to a group of girls and trying to play it for comedy.
* A tamer example is B*Witched's video for "C'est La Vie". The girls are all romantically pursuing a boy. They tie him up with a lasso, drag him around the field, plant him with kisses, and spray him with a hose. Would a BoyBand have gotten away with a video featuring them giving a girl BlackComedyRape?

* Averted by [[Music/Aviators Aviators']] song "I Could Believe You (feat. [[Music/WoodenToaster Glaze]])". The song is sung from a man's perspective, as he is haunted by the ghost of his abusive girlfriend. The subject is portrayed seriously and unironically.

* The video to Music/LilyAllen's "Smile" features her paying a group of thugs to beat up her ex and ransack his apartment. They even scratch all the records he uses at his job as a DJ, and they stuff his clothes in the toilet in anticipation of the LaxativePrank that Lily plays on him. Throughout the video, Lily pretends to comfort him, then laughs at his suffering when he turns away. If the genders were flipped, this video would be far less likely to be played for anything but horror.

** 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". While the video is AdamWesting for Taylor's image as a woman who keeps scaring off her men, if the genders were reversed, there would have been an uproar after the song came out.
* Read the lyrics to ''Please Don't Leave Me'' by {{Music/Pink}}. Now, imagine the reaction if that song were sung by a man. And her latest, ''True Love'' where she sings about wanting to put her hands around a guy's neck at the same time she allegedly wants to hug him. Somehow, this song is seen as empowering, even though [[MisaimedFandom it's pretty clearly not supposed to represent an entirely healthy relationship]]. [[note]]In fact, she and her husband have been in marriage counseling, and nearly got divorced.[[/note]] If a guy were singing those lyrics...yeah. Most male covers keep the lyrics as-is but Halfway To Hollywood genderflipped half of the lyrics. Thus we get like "Sometimes I hate every stupid word you say/Sometimes you wanna slap me in my whole face" and "At the same time, I wanna hug you/You wanna wrap your hands around my neck/I'm an asshole but I love you". It comes off as a DomesticAbuse victim self-victim blaming themselves.

* 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.
