Should we as a society be speaking up about violence against men that would not be tolerated if the gender was reversed? Is that being too uptight? When the character of Penny, in The Big Bang kicks a guy in the balls it’s portrayed as hilarious. When the character played by Robert De Niro in the movie The Wedding, gets punched in the face by a character playing an ex-wife, and then again by the character playing his current wife – it’s cheap slap-stick humour? Is there a message? If it was reversed and he punched his ex and then his wife would it be as funny?
