* This is Eglante's reaction to learning that Galehaut is gay in the contemporary ''ArthurKingOfTimeAndSpace''. (In the baseline arc, Eglante and Galehaut are in a relationship, although she does sometimes wonder about his knightly devotion to Lancelot. In the space arc, Eglante and Galehaut are in a relationship, and it's not clear if she knows he's also attracted to Lancelot or not.)

* Happens in many a LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek film. Being gay is pretty much the only way a human male can appear in one of these and not be depicted as a horrible monster, in fact.

Ironically, there is no shortage of gay men saying the reverse: that all the good men are taken or ''straight'', admiring the stereotypical positive traits of straight men (masculine mannerisms, straightforward with emotions, laid back attitude, etc.). There's some TruthInTelevision here though; given [[HumansAreFlawed human nature]], [[HappilyMarried healthy relationships]] are a [[http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/seller%27s+market seller's market]] - the most desired goods are either "previously purchased" or otherwise "unavailable for sale" -- on ''both'' sides. Not to mention people's tendency to make sly, humorous negative observations along the lines of MurphysLaw. ("All the good men are gay… isn't that just my luck.")

* As a matter of cultural opinion, [[UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} Japanese]] women have the lowest average opinion of the romantic ability of their own country's male population, compared to women from any other country who have rated their own men. Japan is also a country where women (of all ages and social backgrounds) are far more likely to be fans of the BoysLove, and these relationships are usually portrayed with far more frank romance than Japanese straight relationships. So, as a female Japanese culture-wide attitude, [[AllTheGoodMenAreGay All The Good Men]] ''[[AllTheGoodMenAreGay Are]]'' [[AllTheGoodMenAreGay Gay]]. [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench Or are from Korean soap operas]].
* The feeling found in many a poor woman/girl when they find out their celebrity crush is gay. Unless they're a YaoiFangirl.
* Of course, many gay men [[IncompatibleOrientation only wish this were true]].

** Of course, in the song, not ''all'' the good men are gay. The rest [[CaptainObvious die post-coitus or turn out to be married]].

* In ''KingOfTheHill'', one episode had Bill and Luanne working at a trendy hair salon for women, but no one will go near Bill because the thought of a straight man working their hair disgusts them. They think Bill is "a sleazy barber". To get more clients, Bill and Luanne try emulating the popular CampGay stylist on staff. All of Bill's female clients, including the staff, tell Bill how sad it is that he's gay because they would love to have a boyfriend like him. When Bill finally reveals he's straight, the women go back to being disgusted.

A woman looking for Mr. Right eventually finds a great guy with all the right things she's looking for - but it turns out he's homosexual, leading to the dismissive statement about straight men. This is loaded with the [[UnfortunateImplications Unfortunate Implication]] that only (and all) gay men possess the qualities women want--tenderness, consideration, etc.--while heterosexual men are pretty much primitive cavemen or [[AllMenArePerverts perverted]] {{Jerkass}}es who don't know how to act in public and treat other people.

* ''{{Frasier}}'' episode "Out With Dad". [[SorryImGay Martin pretends to be gay, to fend off the advances of an older woman.]] When asked by her daughter, she sighs, "Opera queen" in a tone that clearly states they're quite common. Subverted when Martin's gay act makes him a perfect target for the daughter's uncle.

* Subverted by the ''ModernFamily'' third-season episode "Treehouse". After inverting SorryImGay when Cameron wins a bet with Mitchell and their likewise-gay friend Longinus by getting a woman at the bar to give him her phone number (funnier still when you keep in mind that Eric Stonestreet is straight in real life), Cameron winds up getting close enough to her to not want to let her know until Mitchell shames him into doing it. But when he does, after hiding any evidence of Mitchell or Lily from their apartment before she comes over, [[spoiler:it turns out that she knew all along; [[PetHomosexual she just wanted to have a gay male friend because it would be cool]]. He then rebukes her for viewing him through a tropish lens (perhaps angry that his portrayal didn't fool her)]], and then just as Mitchell returns the episode subverts its own subversion: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny she makes the angry, hurt speech you'd expect if the show had simply played the trope (ahem) straight]].
