* The treatment of albinism in fiction is startlingly harsh. The condition seems to have been declared officially creepy with ''Literature/MobyDick'' (although the whale in question only had a white ''hump''). There are no ordinary people who happen to be albino; instead there are an assortment of insidious operatives and psychotic killers. There is a sense of albinos [[DisabilitySuperpower having some kind of otherworldly powers]], when all they can really claim is poor vision and susceptibility to skin cancer.

* Averted, perhaps uniquely, by the Hopi people, an indigenous tribe that lives in Arizona. Due to a genetic quirk, albinism is very common among the Hopi, and since their traditional lifestyle involves working outside (the Southwest is very hot and sunny, so obviously not the greatest climate for someone with no melanin in their skin to protect against sunburn) they gave preferential treatment to albinos and had them do tasks that allowed them to stay indoors. Albinism is seen by them as special and a blessing rather than a deformity.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has Gai and Lee, who are frequently made fun of for their large eyebrows and their oddly shaped eyes and lashes, in canon, fanon, and just the fandom in general. The jumpsuit, haircut and poses are all their own choices, though, so those don't count.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had Peter being sexually harassed by his boss, to the point that she demanded he come to her house and have sex with her. While she was clearly shown as being in the wrong, the whole thing was PlayedForLaughs, and Lois outright refused to believe that a woman could sexually harass a man (mostly because AllMenArePerverts). Later on, the boss tells Peter she's a virgin because she was [[InformedDeformity too ugly to get laid]], itself an [[AcceptableInevitableTargets Acceptable Target]].
