    The news story of the waitress in Georgia who fought back against a man who groped her has reinforced that there is an uneven set of rules based on gender.

    I condemn what the man did. His behaviour was beyond unacceptable, not to mention illegal and immoral. It's pleasing that his vile act was caught on film, allowing him to be prosecuted.

    But I can't help wondering what would have happened were the genders reversed and a man who had been assaulted in this way then responded by grabbing the clothing of a female perpetrator, putting an arm around her neck and forcefully slamming her into hard furniture. Would the man be universally cheered as a hero and the incarnation of empowerment? Would the woman have spent two days in a police cell? Or would the conversation around it be somewhat different?

    Yes, that is indeed justice. As for the next part of the story...

    Sadly, we all know the answer to that.
