Can you imagine a sitcom in which the star, a man, would throw something in anger at a woman? It would never happen. It seems to be ok, and maybe even funny though, if a woman throws something at a man.
Case in point - in the trailer for the new Canadian sitcom, the star is furious and she throws something sharp at her boyfriend. He ducks and it pierces the wall behind his head. This is supposed to be funny. Would it be considered funny if a man did it? I think not.
The physical abuse of men is so common in the media that nobody even notices it. Woman punch, slap and push men with regularity on TV and in movies all the time.
Why is that ok?
The only time you see a man hit a woman in the media is shortly before he is arrested.
