Manipulating Wrestling/DLoBrown and Wrestling/MarkHenry into fighting one another had no affect on their collective conscious but Jacqueline did think Terri's demands SexSlave of Meat were excessive.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': By the time you're introduced to Irina, she's already lost any interest in men due to having [[DudeWheresMyRespect a bad history with them]]. They either treat her as a sex object, or make light of her rank because she's a woman. During her first heart-to-heart, she notes that her subordinate, Gwin, is one of the few exceptions she's met, but it isn't enough to change [[AllMenArePerverts her opinion of men in general]].

If your character is male, she'll add you to the list as well.

** The Hunters of Artemis are heroic versions of this. They all have a strong dislike for guys (and have sworn off any romantic relationships with them). Unlike Circe, though, they don't go out of their way to ''harm'' guys. (Which isn't very reassuring for guys, considering that Greek deities like Artemis are infamous for DisproportionateRetribution. Artemis claims to have turned guys into {{jackalope}}s and other animals just for stumbling upon their camp.)

* ''FatalFrame'' V has a gender-flipped, downplayed version of the "Does Not Like Women" variant. Ren Hojo, the male player character of the game, is perfectly fine with women in general but uneasy when interacting with most of them, being oftentimes unable to look them in the eye in said interactions. The exception is his assistant, Rui, who, due to having lived in his residence for some time, notices that he frequently has nightmares and tends to be [[TalkingInYourSleep talking in his sleep]] while suffering said nightmares, from which she deduces his nightmares may be the reason behind his unease with women, and one of her notes has her wondering: "Are the women he's dreaming about really that frightening?"

Whether it's the female "Does Not Like Men" or the rarer male "Does Not Like Women" variant of this trope, generally the character in question is treated sympathetically [[TragicBigot as long as the reason they don't like the opposite sex is because of bad experience]], [[FreudianExcuse usually being actively hurt by a man or woman]]. If the reason they don't like the opposite sex is because they were brought up in a society of institutionalized sexism, expect this character to be villified in some way, or at the very least treated as unsympathetic, usually resulting in a HeelFaceTurn where they get AnAesop in "Sexism Is Wrong" (or something along those lines). If they are otherwise a good person who just has the "[[ValuesDissonance wrong views]]", you have a [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]], and if the character actively ''hates'' the other side, welcome to your StrawMisogynist or StrawFeminist. If they don't take a hint and never learn that all sexes are equal, expect this person to be a [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain villain]] for the long term.

Other times it's just used to explain why a character [[ImprobablyFemaleCast isn't ever seen with the opposite sex]]. It's frequent that eventually one character comments on this and takes it as a [[SchoolgirlLesbians sign of sexual orientation]].
