*** Gloria is frequently portrayed as quick-tempered and violent when angry. She occasionally threatens Jay, implies she's familiar with violence, and even threatens to ''shoot him'' in a rage. She even hits him in a few episodes!

Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale:
** ''Frequent'' jokes are made about Claire's propensity to yell at Phil and her tendency to snap when stressed. She also tends to overindulge on wine and take it out on Phil, inevitably followed by a cycle of self-pity about it.
** Gloria.
*** Gloria is frequently portrayed as quick-tempered and violent when angry. She occasionally threatens Jay, implies she's familiar with violence, and even threatens to ''shoot him'' in a rage. She even hits him in a few episodes!
*** Many, ''many'' episodic subplots involve Jay trying to avoid enraging her over the issue of the week, going to comical lengths to avoid being yelled at or cover up embarrassing things. He seems in some episodes to be sincerely (if comically) afraid of incurring her anger.
*** She often admits to hypocrisy in the directly to the camera "interview" segments, and then proceeds to continue anyway.
*** All in all, it's difficult to picture any of the above being remotely funny if Jay were doing it to Gloria.
** Cam routinely weaponizes guilt and threatens emotional over-reaction to get what he wants from Mitch, often leaving him worried and neurotic over it.

** "Connection Lost" takes place entirely on Claire's Mac Book, and she uses pretty much every basic apple feature included - messaging, Face Time, Safari web browser, iCloud, Find My iPhone, etc. Again, no money changed hands with apple in this episode.
