If a woman abuses a man, does anyone notice?
The YouTube pranksters at OckTV
conducted a social experiment. They filmed a man mock-abusing a woman in public.
Every time they acted out the scene, bystanders leapt up to protect the woman. They held the man down, leaving restaurants and cafes to keep his girlfriend safe.
Then, OckTV turned the tables. They had the woman physically and verbally abuse the man in public. No one stopped her. A few men even laughed, pulling out smartphones in order to film the fight.
Domestic violence toward men isn't an easy problem to address in a society that values "manliness" and "toughening up."
