To some extent I can understand this. After all, men are not subjected to violence as much as women are, and when men are, they are usually mutilated by men rather than women. However, there is a percentage of men who does fall under the attack of women. That percentage isn't as low as the media makes it appear. Thing is, the world having the notion that men are stronger and all, don't, or rather can't, believe that the stronger gender (which is an assumption) can be harmed by the weaker one. The public will laugh their asses off if a men fall under the attack of a woman - even if the attack tends to be a violent one (and in some cases, such female predators are praised sky-high for their skills). While I find this attitude cheap and disgusting, many rejoices in the idea that women are becoming strong and independent by unnecessarily and unreasonably attacking men. Also, most men feel ashamed to talk about the attacks that they'd to face in the fear that the public will label them as sissies and mock them for the rest of their lives.
Sometimes the attack can be mild; sometimes it can be harsher, violent, even involving heinous crimes like murder. Some regards mild attacks like unnecessary touches, punches, etc, to be something normal and 'nothing to worry about'. Many feel that it's absolutely okay for a woman to touch men on their private parts and not face a single consequence for it. I have seen women dragging men (men who are not interested and don't like such attitudes from others) by their pants, shirts, almost opening half of their clothes in the process; punching, slapping and hitting men in the process of talking (it can be a friendly interaction, but if some men don't like it - it becomes a form of abuse), and yet no one cares or gives a damn about it. Now you turn the table around and have a man dragging a woman by her clothes - Kamiz, dupatta, saree, shirts, etc - and what would you get? You will be straightly sent into the jail for such "disgusting behavior".
Problem is, some people have limited visions and they already form a conclusion in their minds and are afraid of going against their already-formed view. I find it ridiculous beyond belief when people say it with conviction that ALL [insert anything here] is good/bad - as if we have seen the whole world and had the ability to analyze it from top to bottom. Anyhow, calling a whole gender (or anything, like country or group of people) good or bad is not just ridiculous, but also a logical fallacy, something that makes one's debate weaker. So one should think twice before making such sweeping generalizations.
