* The HeteronormativeCrusader is an extremely common (to the point of cliché) antagonist in SlashFic in general, often overlapping with RonTheDeathEater.



* While the ''Series/InsideScoop'' episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GEI7HKE_D4 Ban Left Marriage]] in itself is pure WindmillCrusader, it's also a parody of HeteronormativeCrusader.

** And then a third episode where he had to learn to accept that some HeteronormativeCrusaders are just intolerant: there's no FreudianExcuse, ArmoredClosetGay, or even (as was the case for him) ignorance about homosexuality being contagious or a choice. These folks understand what being gay means and just ''hate'' it.

** The PoliticallyIncorrectProtagonist is a straight guy who thinks being gay is disgusting. Unlucky for him, his roommate Hom is gay. He learns to become more tolerant but is still pretty biased.

* ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'': Several tracts are about homosexuals being possessed by demons or generically evil. Sometimes fetish clothes and BDSM tools are used to show just how "evil" the gays are. Heterosexual BDSM doesn't seem to exist in the world of Chick.

* The infamous ''Perversion For Profit'' from 1965 (see [[Quotes/HeteronormativeCrusader the quotes page]]) isn't truly about homosexuality or sadomasochism as much as it's a general plea for the virtue of censorship and the evils of free speech. However, they [[ValuesDissonance assume that the audience has a unhesitating hatred for homosexuals and sadomasochists]], and thus [[AcceptableTargets mention these minorities several times in order to make the attack on freedom of speech appear more legitimate]].
** [[TakeThat A parody re-edit of the film]] was later made, called "[[http://www.archive.org/details/come_join_the_fun2004 Come Join the Fun]]".

* Parodied in ''Literature/TheIlluminatusTrilogy'': One of the [[EpilepticTrees theories]] on why Atlantis was destroyed is that [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the Illuminati]] hated the civilization's FreeLoveFuture enough to nuke it back to the Stone Age.
** Turns out that this story was false from start to finish later on in the book, however. Atlantis wasn't a paradise, and the Illuminati at the time wasn't pure evil -- [[spoiler:in fact it and the Discordianism were essentially the same for a quite long time.]] There are plenty of conservative religious organizations with amusingly acronymic names in the book, however, mainly playing the role of a ButtMonkey, or the underlying reason for the protagonists' embrace of the counterculture in their backstories.

* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' often plays with this trope, with detectives reminding themselves and each other that bruises aren't necessarily caused by abuse, they could also be caused by BDSM. In some episodes, the trope is played completely straight.

* Worf of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' can occasionally stumble into this, but generally only in [[OutOfCharacterMoment out of character]] episodes such as "The Outcast" and "Let He Who Is Without Sin...", wherein he is used as the resident [[StrawmanPolitical conservative strawman]].

* On ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', Becky quits the SchoolPlay because the director, Eli, turns ''RomeoAndJuliet'' into ''[[GayAesop Romeo and Jules]]''. When he tells her about the change, she says that she is surprised that the principal endorses "alternate lifestyles". Later on, she meets Dave, who plays Romeo, and offers him religious counseling because he'll have to play a gay character. The hockey team also appears to be homophobic, though they are okay with [[GirlOnGirlIsHot lesbians.]]
** Becky started defying this trope as part of some CharacterDevelopment in regards to her beliefs. She started dating Adam, a female-to-male transgender, then helps Imogen, a pansexual, get with lesbian Jack. There was also a brief moment she thought she liked girls. The rest of her family, though, is not so keen on joining her on that journey.

* Briefly mentioned in the ''Flaming Moe'' episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons.'' Right after Moe is outed as a ''heterosexual'' in his campaign for mayor, his disappointed gay supporters complain that they now have to choose between voting for the phony gay and "[[ArmouredClosetGay a Republican whose record is so anti-gay, he's clearly secretly super gay.]]"

* WesternAnimation/MoralOrel: Moralton has a noted amount of [[TheFundamentalist Fundamentalists]], and Reverend Putty shows disdain towards Coach Stopframe's sexuality. Unlike other members of the town, Putty lets his prejudices go, and is quite accepting when he learns that his daughter is a lesbian. In one of the cut episodes, he was comfortable performing a lesbian wedding, but could not as the marriage license was rejected.

In fiction, the wars on homosexuality and sadomasochism is more and more often played for laughs or as a way of highlighting [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain how unsympathetic the antagonist is]]. (On the other hand, the Heteronormative Crusader might be the ''hero'' - or an antihero at worst - if [[SissyVillain the]] ''[[SissyVillain gays]]'' [[SissyVillain are the villains]].) Such an antagonist is likely to either be a StrawHypocrite, who uses a rival's sexuality as an excuse to attack him, or a hypocrite of the SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny kind.

* On ''Series/{{Empire}}'', Lucious falls into this trope regarding his gay son Jamal. Lucious miustreats him from the beginning, even putting him in a trashcan when he acted effeminately as a child. He begins to grudgingly accept Jamal's sexuality in season 2, as long as he's not directly confronted with it. [[spoiler: However, when he walks in on Jamal alone with a closeted record producer, Lucious loses his cool and tells Jamal that he is a disappointment and he'll be celebrating when Jamal finally dies of AIDS.]]
