** Similarly, fans who writhe at the suspicion [[CourtlyLove of a beloved character]] having a romantic partner will eagerly accept a gender-reversed (and usually younger) MoralityPet who nonetheless fufills the exact same intended role.

** In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' the ten year Negi is the object of lust of several of his teenage students, a few openly try to [[MarshmallowHell seduce]] [[{{Shotacon}} him]]. There would be much more of a stir if the genders were reversed and it was teenage boys crushing on a ten year old girl.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' summed up [[ShotaCon female pedophilia]] succinctly in "Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy".

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Comicbook/GrantMorrisonsBatman,'' Dick and Damian are attacked by villains with a CircusOfFear schtick; Damian captures the [[GirlsWithMoustaches Bearded Lady]] and starts to use EnhancedInterrogationTechniques. However, WordOfGod noted that it seems "ungallant" even for a TykeBomb like him to [[WouldntHitAGirl beat up a woman]], so they made her look [[FatBastard bigger]] and [[LadyLooksLikeADude more masculine]] until it seemed acceptable.

* A straight woman falling for a gay man and attempting to change him is admissible, if a little pathetic. A man doing the same to a lesbian would be [[SeriousBusiness distinctly unfunny]].
** Well, there is ''Film/ChasingAmy'', although she turns out to be a bisexual anyway.

** The {{Lunar}} series, as of the remakes, features 'bromides' - collectible items that serve little purpose other than offering eye-candy of female characters. ''[[VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete]]'' includes bromides for some male characters as well...including a most disturbing one of Borgan, a [[{{Gonk}} fat and ugly]] [[VillainousGlutton male villain]].

** Poked at by the developers and some of the artists of KatawaShoujo: some dakimakura-style drawings were released of some of the female leads, to much applause. The two released for the Nurse and Art Teacher (who were male)...not so much.

* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' fandom embraced Erio quickly partly because he's a non-[[DieForOurShip threat]] to any original female character 'shipping, with the exception of the new character Caro who he's clearly 'paired' with from the get go. Yet, she goes into the men's bath to invite him to bathe with her and their two older female teammates. Now, imagine the ruckus that would have happened if it had been a boy inviting a girl into the men's bath...

* ''[[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokurochan Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan]]'', a series about a female angel who repeatedly kills a young male high school student in blood-splatteringly gory ways, then brings him back to life each time, only for him to suffer another painful death a few minutes later. It's a comedy.
** ''MajinTanteiNougamiNeuro'' is about as close as a gender reverse of that relationship can get. The male demon is physically abusive towards the girl lead, who does come to treat this as affection. However, he never actually damages her, and their relationship lacks the sexual (and arguable the romantic) undertones in BAD (Dokuro's something of a tease, cute, and a nice companion when she's not brutally slaughtering Sakura).
*** It also helps that Neuro's demonic nature is lampshaded constantly, making it less "male abuses female" and more "''demon'' abuses female".
* In VideoGames, [[FanService women in skimpy clothing]] are often used as rewards, most notably the ''{{Metroid}}'' series. On the other hand, a man wearing skimpy clothing is regarded as disgusting by most gamers (since the [[MostGamersAreMale majority of gamers are straight men]]); one particularly infamous example of this "reward" can be found in ''VideoGame/LaMulana'', in which [[spoiler:completing the [[BonusLevelOfHell Hell Temple]] "rewards" the player with the Skimpy Swimsuit and a picture of Lemeza wearing it, followed by Duracuets making fun of the player. It's worth noting that [[WholesomeCrossdresser Lemeza himself doesn't seem at all fazed]].]]
