It depends on the sex of the violent person.
If a man beats his wife, then he is automatically, 100% sane, and responsible for his actions. He is an evil thug.
If a woman beats her child, then she is automatically an innocent victim, of anything and everything. Such as being labeled mentally ill. Although that is a distant third, after denial and victim-blaming.
This extends to any and all other situations where, either a man or a woman, commits physical violence.
