Should she feel bad about this or should she feel glad, and did he deserve it?

Let's put it into perspective, shall we?
"A girl once cheated on her boyfriend. He got upset and punched her in the face."
Notice how the original post seems "so debatable", yet nobody even takes a second thought once it is reversed and even more mild as in this case.
People will justify women's violence because "he had it coming," even when they wouldn't justify the reverse.
The mantra of domestic violence repeats itself:
"If a man hits a woman, it's because he's a jerk. If a woman hits a man, it's because he was a jerk and deserved it."
That's the only reason domestic violence is treated as an exclusive women's issue and not a relationship or human issue.
