We don’t know if it was minor or not, because the word “assault” is now used to describe such a massive category of offences it is almost meaningless (common assault, where you need not even make contact, to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and beyond).

Alternatively, you think it was self-evidently minor because of the genders of the individuals involved.

I’m not convinced there’s anything evident about the genders involved.

There is something about the ACT police releasing images of people for allegedly committing fairly minor offences that freaks me out.

Why does this have the tag of alleged assault?

Weird.
In a movie about a man abusing a woman (with consent, sort of), a woman assaults a man?

Well done that lady.

Leaving aside how crap that movie surely is, I’m 100% in favour of punching anyone talking during a movie. May this hero escape the clutches of the law so she may punch again another day.
