* When the other Misfits see Stormer talking to a member of WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} And The Holograms they became furious and dragged her away. Pizzazz and Stormer get into an argument over the date and it seems at first Pizzazz is mad because Kimber is a woman. No, Pizzazz is mad because she is a Hologram. Stormer's bandmates consider it treacherous for her to date a member of that band.

* Used in the SupremePower comics, where the [[CaptainErsatz Lex Luthor stand-in]] Emil Burbank tells the {{Ultimate|Marvel}} Nick Fury, who looks a lot like Creator/SamuelLJackson, that he "despise[s] you people." And then clarifies that he of course means security specialists. What else?

* In ''{{Neighbours}}'' Chris briefly suspects Kyle of homophobia when he shows reluctance to let him rent the spare room at No. 26. Kyle clarifies that it was because Chris is in a relationship, something that Kyle and Rhys don't exactly want rubbed in their faces while both are going through bad breakups. * Horribly subverted in an episode of ''{{Community}}''. Pierce is well known to be incredibly racist, sexist- well, basically everything that ends in 'ist'. He one times warns Annie to be careful around an Asian overachiever, because they're "ruthless".

* Series/SleepyHollow: Ichabod sees two men holding hands and asks Abbie if "that is considered acceptable now." Abbie proceeds to explain how times have changed and the current progress of gay rights until Ichabod cuts her off explaining that he was actually bothered by one of the men wearing a hat indoors. He goes on to explain that he knows about homosexuals since he trained under [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Wilhelm_von_Steuben Baron von Steuben]]...and he watched the finale of ''Series/{{Glee}}''.

Not an example. It's still racist and discriminatory, so it's not a switch.
* A possible case of this exists with Greenback Jane in ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. She takes to calling Feng Yifei (a Chinese hacker) things like "Miss Fu Manchu" and "Miss Peking Duck," [[spoiler:but this might only be because she was spying for the PRC]].

* Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Discworld/MenAtArms,'' when Angua says "is it because I'm a w-" and you think she's saying "woman" until it turns out she's also a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]]. ** Carrot also assumes that's what she meant, leading to an [[ShapeshiftingSquick unfortunate incident]] when the full moon is out. *** Both Angua and Carrot (and the reader, given how certain lines are phrased) think that Vimes doesn't want her in Watch because she's a woman. No, he just doesn't like werewolves. But the misunderstanding persists for most of the book, and of course means that Angua initially has very little respect for him.

* In an ''ArchieComics'' story from TheSixties, Veronica, seeing Chuck and Jughead some distance away, tells Archie she doesn't want "his kind" at her upcoming party. Archie assumes she's prejudiced against blacks and launches into a tirade, saying if Chuck isn't welcome there, "you can take your party and [[TotallyRadical go plumb to blazes. Dig?]]" Veronica explains that Chuck is most welcome at the party, and that by "his kind" she meant Jughead, who's a "slob." Somehow this mollifies Archie, [[FridgeLogic despite Jughead being his best friend]]. ** Well, Jughead ''is'' a slob...

Added namespaces.
* Morris Kazenstein, the genius inventor from ''SewerGasAndElectric'', is stricken with a bad case of Jewish liberal guilt when dealing with his Palestinian foster siblings. They take constant merciless advantage of his feelings -- even though they were raised in the UK -- until, when he finally gets fed up and suggests they go fight to liberate Palestine, they launch into a tirade against Morris ... for being an ''American''. * Vlad Taltos, of the ''{{Dragaera}}'' novels, is occasionally shocked when a Dragaeran despises him for being a Jhereg, as opposed to being an Easterner.
