* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'': Kazai does a double. First you think that gay angels is considered pure blasphemy in angel society (It isn't. Might have something to do with his goddess being slightly hippie-like). Then the angel in question turns into a werewolf, and that would open a can of worms, but he's not concerned about telling his boyfriend that. AND THEN it turns out that [[FantasticCasteSystem because his crush is a Fire caste and he's a Water caste]], that might be considered scandalous because X-elemental angels are supposed to inbreed with other X-elemental angels. Kieri is simply baffled, considering HER discriminatory romance is LITERALLY blasphemous...

* Happens often to Wallace White in Leftover Soup. He wants to be the white side in chess (or it's equivalent) not because he's black, but because his last name is White. Jamie is brought to him for a suit not for, as he initially assumed, a "gay makeover" but because they are about the same size and Wallace was sure to be home. Even Word of God States that he has a large penis not because he's black, but because he represents the author's idealised self.

A form of BaitAndSwitch comedy that teases with prejudice and discrimination, where one party looks like they're about to discriminate against someone for one reason, a reason that would be appallingly un-PC, but in reality[[DramaticPause …]] it's because they like avocado ice cream.
