Question A double standard for men and women?

I've been lurking on this forum for some time, and over the past few months I've seen the topic of abuse come up several times. It was hard not to notice that the one time it came up that a man was the target of abuse by his wife not one word was said about it by anyone even thought the abuser is a member of the forum because she was the one that mentioned it happening.
Why is there a double standard to abuse when it comes to men and women? At first I thought it might be that people were takign the poly partner's side over the mono one, but that doesnt' seem to be the case.
I'd really like to know why this is, because ignoring abuse is to me the same as condoning it. The poly community needs to stand up for all it's members, poly and mono, because we get enough prejudice from the outside.
