If FridgeLogic is applied, this trope can become a MortonsFork. ''Anyone'' who is homophobic might be suspected of being this. On the other hand, if you go in the opposite direction and ''defend'' gays, you're ''[[SarcasmMode obviously]]'' speaking up on behalf of your people, which means you're gay anyway! (Then again, people who would try to catch you out this way are probably homophobes, and thus potentially gay themselves, so in that sense [[EveryoneIsGay it sort of evens out]].)

* In ''Out of the Shadows'' by Sue Hines, Jodie is continually picked on by the AlphaBitch because of her [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship extremely close friendship]] with Ro. She gets back at the Alpha Bitch later on in the book by suggesting that she's trying to cover up her own lesbian yearnings with her bullying. It's never confirmed if her accusation was right or not, but the Alpha Bitch ''does'' leave her alone after that.

** Also parodied in [[http://www.theonion.com/video/heartbroken-santorum-condemns-gay-marriage-for-two,27497/ this video]] where "Rick Santorum" reveals why he doesn't like gay marriage is because his boyfriend cheated on him and married some other guy.
* Kagura from ''YukariIsFree'' used to be this, until her friends "dragged her kicking and screaming out of the closet" mid-season 2.

* In [[http://skin-horse.com/comic/of-ancient-gears/ this]] ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'', Sweetheart, an [[UpliftedAnimal Uplifted Dog]] who is canonically in love with her female roommate, advocates [[CureYourGays "curing"]] a same-sex couple of Uplifted Opossums because she fears that LGBT Uplifted Animals will harm the UpliftedAnimal cause. For context, the other characters are concerned about the couple because the couple wants to use MadScience to evangelize people for the ChurchOfHappyology they're founding.

* Kanji in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}.'' When he was a kid, the other kids [[KidsAreCruel teased him]] for liking things like sewing and other "girly" things, so he developed a BadassBiker facade in order to defend himself. These feelings manifest themselves as a half-naked CampGay EvilTwin [[ShadowArchetype Shadow]] with shades of HeManWomanHater. However, since part of accquiring one's Persona is learning to accept your suppressed feelings, Kanji learns to be more at ease with himself (especially once he learns that there are people who ''do'' accept him for who he is). Although he remains [[ManlyGay a tough guy]], he stops worrying about whether or not he's "strange." Worth noting that his sexuality is [[ShrugOfGod deliberately left ambiguous]] in both (English and Japanese) versions.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Shinji Ikari, particularly in the manga, is all but stated to be explicitly bisexual, even admitting to have fallen for Kaworu, even though he says he was afraid of liking a boy, he is very shy and insecure about that side of him and actively avoids recognizing this crush up until [[spoiler:he has to kill Kaworu]].
