Man Knocked Unconscious by Wife; Scenario Made Into Joke

This also belongs under the "inequality/double standards" dept....according to this story from Ananova News, a man who mistakenly sent a gift intended for his mistress to his wife was knocked unconscious by an ashtray she threw at him as he tried to flee. The incident occurred in Romania, and has been made into a joke here in the U.S. If a man had knocked a woman unconscious in the same way, even if he had found out she was unfaithful to him, we would disparage him as a jealous, dominating husband. The words "domestic violence" would be used to describe the incident. But not, for some reason, when the person being attacked is male.
