* Done in the original Get Smart TV show after Max is punched out by a previously effeminate character who spoke in a falsetto because no one would believe a deep bass voice could design windows.
* In ''Series/{{Glee}}'', Kurt gets caught by his dad dancing in a unitard with two girls to Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video.

In a later episode, when he feels that quarterback Finn is "stealing" his dad away from, Kurt begins dressing in flannel clothing and dating a woman in order to appear more manly and win back his father's affection.
