** Likewise, when Magic Johnson revealed he was HIV-positive, he was quick to assure the public that he was heterosexual. (To his credit, he soon realized the potential UnfortunateImplications and reached out to homosexual groups for his HIV/AIDS activism.)

* ''Literatue/IClaudius'' has a passage where the title character expresses distaste for the noble men who take young men as lovers, describing the latter as being blatant {{Gold Digger}}s and stating he has never seen the appeal of such an arrangement. While this might come off as an WriterOnBoard by Robert Graves Claudius is one of the few Roman Emperors who was never known to have had any male lovers, which was remarked upon by contemporaries as odd.

* While not actually ''said'', ''ShugoChara'' made it clear that Nagihiko is straight in episode 56 when he's assigned as the newest Jack's Chair . He refuses, and Tadase, as an attempt to change his mind, shows off his BishieSparkle. However, Nagihiko isn't at all amused by this. Later, when Tadase and Kukai tell Amu, a girl, about Nagihiko being the new Jack, Amu lets out her own BishieSparkle, to which Nagihiko cannot resist. This alone counts as enough evidence that, yes, he likes girls.

* This trope is played with by a character itself, not the creators of the show, in an episode of ''Series/{{Glee}}'', where gay character Kurt, after coming out of the closet, decides to act like a stereotypical straight guy, wearing flannel shirts and attempting to speak with a deep voice, even making out with a girl, in an attempt to fit in better and believing it would make his father love him more. Throughout the episode he constantly asserts his newfound "macho" status, but no one really buys it (except [[TheDitz Brittany]].)

** Santana, who tip-toed out of her [[ArmoredClosetGay Armored Closet]] in order to confess her love for Brittany, only to leap back into it when she was turned down. The next time the two met, she blamed the whole thing on temporary insanity and made sure to point out that she was now going to write an awesome ''heterosexual'' song about her [[TheBeard boyfriend]]. She then got so flustered by Brittany looking at her that she asked her to look away in order for her to remember her locker combination.

* John Watson from ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' is very adamant about his straightness.
