** It's also shown in another episode that the "Yes Dear 9000" can be modified to work on girls. Which is then used to full effect on [[LaserGuidedKarma Lizzie]] by her own aborrant admirer, and is portrayed with the exact same amount of horror as it was with Nigel

** Also, in one episode Arnold is fed up with Helga verbally abusing him in art class, and after she throws glue and feathers on him (and then laughs at him, shouting to the whole class "Arnold's a bird!"), he retaliates by throwing a cup of paint on her. The teacher, who never did ''anything'' when Helga abused him, is shocked at ''Arnold'' and sends him to the principal's office, and his grandparents are notified. [[KarmaHoudini Helga gets away with this]].

Homer, however, is disturbed by all this, and fires Julia. When Julia makes a threat on Homer's life, Chief Wiggum puts up a lot of security to protect him.

* Janet Barch from ''{{Daria}}'' is the pure, [[KickChick unadulterated]], research-grade form of this trope. The show portrays her [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness as being violently unhinged in early episodes]], which is where most of the actual abuse is confined to. Later episodes portray her as something of a DefrostingIceQueen as she begins a [[PitbullDatesPuppy relationship]] with [[HippieTeacher Mr. O'Neill]], which is portrayed as being weird but not necessarily dysfunctional. ("The F Word" does seem to imply some ''consensual'' "abuse" in their sex life, though.)

* An early episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' revolves around Stan being beaten and everyone being sympathetic toward him over it...until they find out that the one beating him up is his sister. Then they mock him and call him a pussy. This is despite the fact that Stan's sister is older and bigger than he is, and is also a violent sociopath.

Although they ''were'' still sympathetic when asking if his mother was the one hitting him, so this double standard apparently has a limited age range.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheProudFamily'': Oscar is beaten up, sometimes twice an episode, and usually by his wife or mother. Most of the times it's because he flirts with other women, which is wrong, but if Trudy ever flirts with another man and Oscar says something about it,[[TheUnfairSex he is portrayed as over-reacting.]] One particularly {{Egregious}} example: Trudy makes a joke about leaving Oscar for DenzelWashington. Everyone laughs. Oscar makes a joke about leaving her for Creator/HalleBerry. Trudy and Penny glare at him before Trudy drops his foot, which was bandaged after an earlier accident.
