** And to drive this all further home, consider that every one of these cases in an example of a charismatic, older man finding ways to demoralize, torture, or otherwise break a young woman down, with all but Zaheer seeming to relish it rather sadistically (and one of them is Korra's ''own uncle''), while the last villain, Kuvira, is female and does not at all treat Korra in this manner (what suffering she does undergo is either self-inflicted or lingering effects of the previous three). The implications become even clearer when compared to the fact that the traumas suffered by other male characters in the franchise, while often severe (particularly Aang and Zuko), are not at all similar to what happens to Korra. As powerful and dark as the storytelling in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is, and empowering in the way it shows the main character getting stronger, more balanced, and confident by overcoming her various traumas, it can't be denied that it's [[{{Squick}} rather uncomfortable]] watching this sort of torture and breakdown of a female character when nothing of the sort is done to male characters in the franchise. [[IntendedAudienceReaction Though that's probably the point, to some degree]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': The subplot of "Something Ricked This Way Comes", in which Morty and his father clash over whether or not Pluto should be considered a planet, is reminiscent of the climate change debate.

* Pretty much ''every'' children's cartoon since 1995 has done at least one really, really GRatedDrug and one thinly-veiled ComingOutStory.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "A Hug For Grouchy", Grouchy running away from Smurfs who were stalking him and pouncing on him to give him a hug on Hug-A-Smurf Day, whether he wanted one or not, could be construed as an allegory for rape.

** Cerise hides the marks of her [[spoiler:lycanthopy]] under a hood, fearing that others will judge her because of it. Oh, and Daring won't let her on the school sports team because he thinks she's too frail to play. The latter subplot is overtly feminist, but [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WMG/EverAfterHigh some fans]] looked at both and thought 'leukemia'.
