* ''[[Comicbook/TheLegendOfKorraTurfWars Turf Wars]]'' reveals that [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Fire Lord Sozin]] outlawed same-sex relations. It's a bit of an ''odd'' choice, since part of his characterization was being a WellIntentionedExtremist, but it does ring true to life when having Japan's history into consideration.

This is a character who believes that non-heterosexual individuals are bad or 'unnatural' and thus try to suppress any expression that is not male with female. Ranging from physical violence to political hate-mongering in their war against sexual minorities, characters cast in the role of Heteronormative Crusader are a diverse lot. They can be anything from specialized MoralGuardians or {{Principles Zealot}}s, to any bloodthirsty mob equipped with {{torches and pitchforks}}. Sometimes it is ideologues from one of the first two groups who use hate-mongering to bring decent people under their influence by turning them into the third group. Might use [[CondescendingCompassion a bad kind of pity]] as one of their primary weapons, trying to impose [[InternalizedCategorism a negative self-image]] on the non-normative characters.

** In another episode, Homer was worried Bart was becoming gay and spent most of the episode trying to keep him straight by forcibly exposing him to "manly" things like hunting and cigarette ads.

** In another episode, Homer was worried Bart was becoming gay and spent most of the episode trying to keep him straight by forcibly exposing him to "manly" things like hunting and cigarette ads. (The second attempt backfires spectacularly because the ad portrays two panty-clad, pillow-fighting pinup girls, and Bart decides he wants to smoke ''their'' brand.)

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]]'' [[DepravedHomosexual 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.

** Stan Smith though he gets better through CharacterDevelopment mostly relating to his gay neighbors Greg and Terry. This is notable for being the only lesson that Stan learns which actually sticks, as he's notable for AesopAmnesia, which he lampshades in one episode by stating he "doesn't learn lessons". And even then, learning to accept gay people and accepting that they have the right to have children and start families was the focus of two separate episodes.

** Briefly mentioned in the ''Flaming Moe'' episode. 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.]]"

** Another episode revolving around gay marriage has Reverend Lovejoy give a very passive-agressive remark about how he "has no opinion for or against your sinful lifestyle" while explaning why he won't perform gay marriages after the city legalizes them. Homer, sensing money to be made, flips on his usual semi-homophobic attitude and has himself ordained as a minister.

** Shows a failed attempt, in [[http://notalwaysright.com/fighting-ignorance-with-ignorance/1617 "Fighting ignorance with ignorance"]]. It was done by a customer in a bookstore, and was foiled by the salesperson pretending to be equally ignorant.

* This [[NonIndicativeName may be]] the character type of [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doctor]] Heteronormative, the "[[BigBad main]] [[BuffySpeak villain dude]]" from one of Jimbo's {{Romance Novel}}s in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''. Of course, he only just heard the term when naming the character, and thought it sounded like [[AGoodNameForARockBand a good name for a]] {{steampunk}} villain.

* Early on ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'', Ryousuke is grossed out by Marika (a transgender girl) and Osamu (a gay boy) dressing up in female clothing. ''He'' dresses as a girl too, but only does so [[MySiblingWillLiveThroughMe to please his mother]]. He threatens to beat up Marika at one point and actually does hit Osamu. Eventually, Ryousuke learns to be more tolerant of the two.
