My interpretation is she was showing how manly she was and exhibiting toxic masculinity.
What can make the assault harder is the patriarchy and if women are hardly believe men never are. If the power person is a female, it is obviously the man desires it, and if he doesn't and he is heterosexual he is lying because then he must be homosexual.
It is a devilish sort of gaslighting torture of the worst kind.
Do understand though, women have it far worse, but in reality this isn't a game of the battle of scars. Every person deserves respect and love, not power and abuse and neglect.
