* During Creator/RoosterTeeth's RTX '15 convention, the ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' team is showing off the poster for Volume 3. Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross want to show the audience the detail on the post, but since they're using Windows' default picture viewer, it's hard to get it just right. The end result: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyHYO7UtS74 Looking at something you shouldn't]].

** During the 80's, there was a hysterical panic that went around about Satanic ritual abuse that was supposedly happening in preschools and day care centers. It's almost certain that nothing happened and children were interviewed in misleading and coercive ways. The most egregoius case would probably be that of Ray Buckey, who was charged with hundreds of counts of sexual abuse and spent five years in jail before being granted bail. He was cleared of all charges. The trial of his and his co-defendants was the longest and most expensive in California history [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMartin_preschool_trial and didn't produce a single conviction]].

** Or even if you ''are'' the biological relative of a child of a different race. A white man was recently arrested while merely strolling through the park with his black grand-daughter, having been mistaken for her ''kidnapper'' by some busybody who simply couldn't fathom that these two people of different races where in fact related.

* This trope is why the IntergenerationalFriendship is being seen less and less often in media; what was once viewed as an innocent, wholesome relationship [[ValuesDissonance is now seen as]] [[AdultFear the adult "grooming" the child or teenager, in order to make him/her more receptive to sexual advances.]]
* The British "newspaper" News of the World famously published a list of paedophiles which included several completely innocent PAEDIATRICIANS. [[https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2000/aug/30/childprotection.society One paediatrician moved after someone sprayed "paedo" on her front porch and door.]]

]] Ironically, the situation means it's the adults who are being groomed to actively avoid contact with children.

* This can, sadly, occur in real life. And it is NEVER funny for anyone involved. Particularly for men who volunteer with children. Ask any man who volunteers with young kids regularly, almost every one of them at some point or another ran into this trope. Best case someone is making a 'joke' about it, but some people will seriously leap to this conclusion. In fact this trope is one of the reasons it's so hard to find males working with kids, as they're afraid of people leaping to conclusions like this. It's rather sad since many children in mentoring programs have no father figure and are desperate for male role models

* In ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'', Shirou Emiya is often accused by his mother Irisviel and maids of planning to do something inappropriate with Illya, Chloe, and Miyu. It doesn't help that all three girls have a crush on him, and ''[[FilleFatale Chloe]]'' often tries to do something inappropriate with him. Irisviel scares the crap out of him by threatening to castrate him if she catches him trying to do something with them.

* An unusual inversion happens in ''Webcomic/ForestHill'' when Flora has a chance encounter at the grocery store with a young raccoon named Talitha [[spoiler: and her pedophile father, Ray, who mistakes Flora for being a pedophile as well since Benni, her foster child, happened to be with her.]]

* An unusual inversion happens in ''Webcomic/ForestHill'' when [[spoiler:Flora meets Ray Verost, who is an actual pedophile, and he mistakes her for being one as well due to her being with Benni, one of the victims of the pedophile ring he is part of, when in reality she is actually Benni's new foster parent since Benni's abusive father was arrested. [[OneDialogueTwoConversations Flora doesn't realize what Ray is talking about]] until a later conversation with Benni. Benni himself thinks that all adults are pedophiles due to being raised by one and forced to work as a child prostitute until Flora corrects him after he reveals that he thinks Flora had sex with Colin AND Colin's daughter, which is what makes Flora suspicious of Benni's relationship with Ray.]]

** Another episode had a [[spoiler: former teacher shooting up a political rally to get revenge on a different teacher who disliked his caring manner towards the kids he worked in. In one particular flashback, we see the teacher/shooter hugging a student of his after she scraped her knee and getting fired for his behavior being "inappropriate".
