* There is a strip in ''SexyLosers'' where the author reverses the genders of Kenta and his horny mom, making it about a teenage girl being sexually molested by her middle aged father instead of a teenage boy being sexually molested by his middle aged mother. The audience he's presenting his gender-flipped version to beats the crap out of him. Making sure to [[DontExplainTheJoke completely point out]] the DoubleStandard that people let him get away with due to this trope, the author even says in the final panel "It's the ''same damn joke''!"

* In ''TwoKinds'', [[TheChick Flora]] ripping through [[ChivalrousPervert Eric's]] shirt and leaving bloody gashes on his chest is played for laughs. Eric's brother pulling his slave [[MsFanservice Katharine's]] hair makes him a dickhead.

* Subverted in ''QuestionableContent'' when The [=VespAvenger=] - a woman who drives around on a Vespa scooter, attacking boys who are awful to their girlfriends - is stopped by Martin and Faye. They try to point out the double standard by asking her if she'd be horrified by the thought of a man riding around on a Harley beating up women who treat their boyfriends like crap, but the [=VespAvenger=] says that she'd have no problem with that...and ask for his phone number. In the same comic, the fact that Faye uses Martin as a punching bag is shown to be the result of severe mental trauma, and she gets called out on it more than once and tries to be better about it, mostly shifting to [[DeadpanSnarker snark]] as the comic goes on.
* Lucy from ''BittersweetCandyBowl'' would often physically abuse and insult Mike, [[spoiler: which destroyed their friendship and caused him to completely snap and blow up at her, which drove her into a suicidal depression.]] Although Mike could have handled the situation better than he did, the majority of the fanbase is guilty of the double standard, as they view Lucy as a saint and think Mike is the sole problem, refusing to listen when someone points out Lucy's flaws and whenever someone points out that Lucy's behavior was not nice or normal.

* SanThreeKingdomsComic: Taken UpToEleven. It's a regular occurrence for people to die simply because they pissed their wife off (though death is much less permanent when this happens).

* The implications of AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale in an episode of House are explored in this [[http://i.imgur.com/DTnZh.png FUU Comic]]. A woman commits credit fraud, puts nude pictures of him up on the internet and steals his facebook account. The moral? Chase is wrong for spurning her because they were sexually incompatible.

* DumbingOfAge: Joyce, an ''extremely'' sheltered girl entering college, honestly believes punching [[AllMenArePerverts Joe]] has no effect as men are stronger than women. He very much does not think this is so.

Added DiffLines:

** Note that in-universe this ends up being an aversion as [[spoiler: Vriska's abuse ends up escalating severely, ending in her murdering Tavros when he finally stands up to her]].
** Played ''sort of'' straight with Spades Slick and Snowman, but only because Slick is TheChewToy who suffers abuse from ''everyone''. Usually [[{{Jerkass}} bringing it upon himself]]. Not to mention Slick is just as capable of dealing out punishment as Snowman and [[spoiler: he ends up [[TheDogBitesBack shooting her dead]] at the end of Act 5 (though not because of her tormenting behavior)]].

* ''BittersweetCandyBowl'', Lucy's past habits of violence. [[spoiler:She got better]]. Also eventually deconstructed with how this affected Mike's opinion of her in the long run; he becomes ''very'' bitter, to the point where [[spoiler:his repeated rejections and denials of her feelings for him become emotionally abusive]].
** You'd have trouble convincing a lot of the [[FanDumb fans]] of Lucy's misbehavior though.

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', the female mercs often send male mercs to the infirmary needing ''reconstructive surgery'', in response to accidental insults or reflexive lechery. The reverse never happens, and the women are never punished. And on occasion the female doctor performs said reconstructive surgery without pain relievers because of finding out about said "chauvinism".
** Actually, most of the female mercs seen punting their male colleagues into the infirmary are also officers. They get away with it for the same reason that their Captain can poke out a new recruit's eye during a training drill and brush off complaints with a simple, "I'm sorry. Did you say, "thank you sir, may I have another?"" We also see Captain Tagon tossing a woman across the room (she refuses to let her brother avenge her honor on the grounds that she threw the first punch) and brutalized a purple skinned lady to the point that she wore an eyepatch for a year until medical technology capable of growing a replacement eye became available to her (in her case, she had just betrayed Tagon and prepared to kill him and the rest of the mercs).
*** Some of this change could be due to the growth of the strip - the Captain Tagon that hired Dr. Bunnigus based on her photo is very different from the Captain Tagon who simply could not notice Elf flirting with him (which ignorance still won him further abuse from Elf, though at least by this point in the strip it was treated as a problem) - and none of the counterexamples are triggered by anything to do with "chauvinism".

* Subverted in ''QuestionableContent'' when a woman who drives around in a vespa attacking boys who are awful to their girlfriends is stopped by Martin and Faye. When they ask her to imagine a guy doing the same to women who treat their boyfriends like crap, she says that she'd have no problem with that...and ask for his phone number. In the same comic, the fact that Faye uses Martin as a punching bag is shown to be the result of severe mental trauma, and she gets called out on it more than once and tries to be better about it, mostly shifting to [[DeadpanSnarker snark]] as the comic goes on.
