The trouble is that because of stereotypes and double standards like these, often men don't fight back for reasons including that they are either afraid of hurting the woman, or they are afraid that if they fight back, they will be considered the aggressor by the authorities despite any retaliation being in self-defence.[[note]] In some areas, the policies assume women are acting in "preemptive" self-defense, meaning male victims can be arrested ''without actually laying a finger on the woman'', even if ''they'' were the ones who called the cops on ''her''. This also includes, in some cases, "defending" a child or pet.[[/note]] And if the woman actually ''is'' charged, her sentence will probably be ''far'' less severe than the other way around, statistically speaking. Conversely, since stereotypically MenAreTough, a man may be ashamed to admit [[IWasBeatenByAGirl he was beaten by a woman]], leading to victims not coming forward at all.

* One of the protagonist, [[VisualNovel/ShuukakuNoJuunigatsu Masaki Konno]]'s UnwantedHarem girlfriends is a {{Yandere}} who repeatedly attacks him with a naginata without consequence. When one of his old girlfriends meets up with him and makes an advance on him, he slaps her hand away and tells her it's over. Because said girl is a popular fashion model, half of the school ends up out for his blood because he "attacked" her.

* In his early routines GeorgeCarlin used to talk about his work for charities that were slight variations on real ones, like the Salvation Navy ("no one wants to sit in a boat and bang that huge bass drum"). One was battered husbands: "It happens when she is very big and he is very small and they ''both'' drink a quart of whiskey a day." Always killed.
* Later, EddieMurphy got a lot of laughs out of recalling the way his mother would throw shoes at him, his brother and (once) his father when she was sufficiently annoyed.

Even people who ''do'' believe that a woman can seriously hurt a man can still believe in this double standard. Women are often stereotyped as [[MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication inherently nonviolent]] as well as [[WomenAreWiser wiser and morally superior to men]]. By that logic, any man being physically abused by a woman [[TheUnfairSex must have done something to deserve it]], as a woman would never resort to using violence unless it was absolutely necessary.

Even people who ''do'' believe that a woman can seriously hurt a man can still believe in this double standard. Alternatively, female-on-male violence is treated the same way as BatmanGrabsAGun. Women are often stereotyped as considered to be [[MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication inherently nonviolent]] as well as [[WomenAreWiser wiser and morally superior to men]]. By that logic, men]], therefore any man being physically abused by time a woman hits a man, [[TheUnfairSex he must have done something to deserve it]], as it]]; because how could a sweet, innocent woman would never resort to using violence ''ever'' be violent towards ''anyone'' unless it was absolutely necessary.
they were seriously provoked?
