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?

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]] Add on to that, in such cases where the woman actually is charged with a crime, her sentence is, statically, overwhelmingly likely to be ''far'' less severe than had the situations been reversed.

other way around, statistically speaking.

* One of the protagonist, 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.

As of 2015 it is becoming a DiscreditedTrope, as could be evidenced when WebVideo/MatthewSantoro [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ27W2K12fk openly declared for everyone that he was abused by his wife]] ''Nicole Arbour''. Not only did tons of people start to take aversions to the DoubleStandard seriously, but some (like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeWVHKeFFkk boogie2988]]) also noted that they were abused as well. With media picking all of those stories up it is very likely that they would demand stories with similar themes to attract a big audiences.

Female-on-male violence is viewed as more acceptable in fiction than male-on-female violence. Often, a woman using physical violence on a man will be PlayedForLaughs; sometimes it will be DisproportionateRetribution. The key is that in most works where this trope is in effect, it would be completely impossible to imagine the same violent situation play out with the participants' genders reversed without a large dose of drama getting added into the mix. The basic DoubleStandard at work in this trope is sexist on both sides: no woman is strong enough to harm a man, so any man weak enough to be harmed by a woman [[NoTrueScotsman isn't a real man, and that's funny]]; that way, also, you get AmusingInjuries instead of broken bones and cuts.

Note that this trope does ''not'' describe situations where violence is genuinely adequately {{justified| Trope}}, such as Wonder Woman attacking Lex Luthor in defense of Metropolis. Nor does it apply in situations where universal humorous abuse is delivered to the ButtMonkey or TheChewToy by both men and women for equally flimsy reasons that is just ComedicSociopathy. Obviously, it likewise doesn't apply in situations where female-on-male violence is treated as a serious subject. An exception to either case is when one or more of the female characters involved in dealing the violence actively {{invoke|d Trope}} this trope in an attempt to justify their own behavior, whether out loud or within the privacy of their mind.
