* A non-comedic example in ''Literature/{{Wolfheart}}'', when Varian Wrynn shows up at a meeting of Alliance leaders and expresses his dislike for the proposed membership of the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] from Gilneas. Everyone initially assumes he has an issue with them being worgen. Nope, he's cool with that. He just distrusts Gilneans and Lord Genn Greymane in particular for abandoning the Alliance during the Third War.

* ''Literature/{{Genome}}'': When the crew of the starship ''Mirror'' discovers that their passengers are a pair of aliens and their clone guide, some of them are a little miffed. One, who is from a planet, whose population seeks to exterminate all aliens, obviously doesn't like or trust aliens. But the navigator Pak initially also sounds like he doesn't like aliens. Nope. Aliens he's okay with. It's ''clones'' he can't stand. Why? They take away jokes from non-clones. Earlier, Pak pulls something similar on Alex. When they first meet, while Alex is looking for crewmembers, Pak asks if Alex has a problem with him being gay. Alex looks at him like he's crazy (it's the distant future, after all, all silly superstitions like that are long in the past) and tells him he doesn't discriminate. Pak then tells him he's a Natural (non-genetically-modified). Alex (being a [[DesignerBabies Designer Baby]] and distrustful of Naturals) realizes he's been led into a trap, knowing he can't reject Pak simply for being a Natural without going back on his claim of not discriminating.

* Happens near the end of ''Männerhort'' (shelter for men). The (obbiously male) protagonists hide there to get time off they would otherwise have spent stressfully with their women. [[spoiler: In the end one of them comes out as gay. The other men at first feel betrayed since he lied to them but he points out he didn't [[ExactWords actually]] lie - his partner [[GenderBlenderName Alex]]'s "full" first name just wasn't Alexandra. The dudes calm down only to get angry [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin because he supports the wrong sports team.]]

** Malory's also alternatively [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt hot for]] and cold on black people. "The Limited" has her pushing around a black porter on a train, with Lana finally losing it when she calls him [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_for_the_Prevention_of_Calling_Sleeping_Car_Porters_%22George%22 George]] until the porter reveals his name actually ''is'' George.
*** Although Malory was [[AccidentallyAccurate just as surprised as Lana]] to learn that fact.

* During the ''United We Stand'' crossover in ''[[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man]]'', Comicbook/MilesMorales gets captured by a brainwashed [[YoungAvengers Cassie Lang]]. When Cassie reports to her superiors that the new Spider-Man isn't what they'd expect, Miles calls her a racist, only to then realize she's referring to the fact that he's only 13, not that he's black.

* Peculiar example from WhoopiGoldberg's shortlived sitcom ''Whoopie''. She's been charged with smoking in public and tries to get the judge to dismiss the charge, but he refuses and gives her a stiff fine. She accuses him of being prejudiced. When he declares he's not racist, she clarifies: He's prejudiced against ''smokers''. And then he declares that he ''is'' and that she'll pay the fine ''anyways''.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', training with Lon'qu is said to be brutal if you're a man. If a [[PlayerCharacter Female Avatar]] or [[FieryRedhead Sully]] goes through a Support chain with him, they find that he isn't using his full strength. When Lon'qu flat out ''tells'' Sully that the reason is because she's a woman, she assumes the worst, but [[DarkAndTroubledPast the truth]] is [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest more complicated]].
