Sure the boyfriend's 'manhood' can be called into question, but NOTHING is funny about abuse; whether it is the man or woman who is the victim.
I'd generally agree. Plus, I think the guy may be smart enough to know that if he gets into a physical altercation with his ex and tensions are high and he does anything
in response to her hitting him like shoving her, then he could be in a whole lot of trouble, as it would then be a man assaulting a female. Sure, some may think that it doesn't look good for him to retreat, but it's probably pretty smart.
