Why are men generally not freak out if a woman was aggressive to others?

Anonymous
Not sure if this is a double standard but I've noticed a difference in reaction. Long ago when I was 19, I once tried closing a supermarket glass door against a jerk and he caught it on time. In my early 20's, I once slapped back my own mother.

My boyfriend though the jerk deserved it. As for the mother incident, he thought that was wrong but it wasn't that ''omg, it's over... that's the lowest of low'' reaction if it was a man that did that.

I can imagine people's reaction and comments if a guy did that:
''Girl are you out of your mind, he slapped his own mother''
''Don't get into that relationship, he might hit you with that glass door too''
''If he could slap his own mother, what makes you think he can't hit you''
''Run girl, he already has a violent streak''
''A leopard doesn't changes its color, once a man hits, he'll always hit''

Hardly anyone would give him the benefit of the doubt, unlike me. I even wrote this on a different forum and most of the comments (from both genders) were mainly about how people can change and as long as I'm not behaving that same way and have improved that's what matters. Wow... I got nice replies.
