* In French crime films of the 1950s, e.g. ''{{Film/Rififi}}'', it is common for the protagonist to have spent four or five years in jail. There is a critical consensus that this is a reference to the German occupation of France in World War Two.

*** What really drives the rape analogy home is how Apocalypse's whole interaction with Xavier was all about taking control over the victim. Which is the primary method a rapist would use to make the victim feel helpless.

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Apocalypse's relentless pursuit of Xavier [[spoiler:for the latter's body and the subsequent MindRape]] is a disturbing analogy for an obsessive stalker/rapist wanting to violate his prey. It also helps the impression that Charles is a PrettyBoy, which further enhances his image as a victim. A later scene reinforces this subtext; after being denied [[spoiler:possession of Xavier's body]], Apocalypse begins to angrily call out to Charles and demand he show himself in a manner reminiscent of an abusive spouse.

*** Between going through a personal hell, his mind clearly not working straight, it being the '70s and him shooting up to dull the pain, Xavier closely resembles a shell-shocked Vietnam veteran. Creator/JamesMcAvoy has even called it his ''Film/BornOnTheFourthOfJuly'' look.

* According to ''Entertainment Weekly'''s review of TheJonasBrothers' [[ThreeDMovie 3-D concert movie]], there's one part where the brothers spray foam at the audience -- out of a hose, if I remember the article correctly. The reviewer only hopes that the target audience doesn't see the symbolism in this.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': The animal police, due their own unexamined prejudices treat predators differently. [[spoiler: A politician whips up anger at predators with a reputation for violence for political gains.]] Many have commented that this is Disney's most political film for the subtle and not so subtle messages about race.

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Mystique refuses to answer to Raven Darkholme (her birth name) because "that's my slave name."

** ''Film/XMenTheLastStand'': Mystique refuses to answer to Raven Darkholme (her birth name) because "that's my slave name."" Considering the franchise's rather unsubtle use of HaveYouTriedNotBeingAMonster and Mystique/Raven's struggle about the discrepancy between the way she appears and her true identity, it also brings to mind a transgender person adopting a new name that reflects their gender.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': [[spoiler:Kylo Ren]] interrogating an abducted [[spoiler:Rey]] while the latter is tied down and in obvious terror and pain has more than a few parallels with a rape scene.

* The scene at teh start of ''Film/StuartLittle'' where the Littles meet and decide to adopt Stuart plays out like a white family adopting a black kid. The adoption agent even says "We try to discourage parents from adopting outside their own... species. It rarely works out".
