* The action comedy ''Film/DemolitionMan'' depicts a future that has become so politically correct things like profanity, unhealthy foods, and even sex have been banned. When a dangerous criminal is released on this nanny state, the authorities are forced to thaw out a CowboyCop from the 20th century because the future police are too ineffectual.

* ''Many'' online commentators have stated this opinion of the controversy surrounding the 2016 ''[[Film/Ghostbusters2016 Ghostbusters]]'', in response to those who attribute the negative reception towards the reboot as nothing but misogyny. It reached a massive spike after Creator/JamesRolfe of [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd Angry Video Game Nerd]] fame received a barrage of abuse and hit-pieces (much of it [[{{Hypocrite}} blatantly misandrist in nature]]) when he announced that he would not be reviewing or even seeing the movie.

* In Kage Baker's TheCompanyNovels, in the future alcohol, tobacco, sugar, chocolate, meat, fish, dairy... pretty much everything even remotely "bad for you" or involving possible discomfort to any animal, is illegal. Sex is being phased out as well.

*** Much like the aforementioned "Death Camp of Tolerance" did before, an overarching theme in the season is the point to be made that while plenty of discriminatory views have no place in modern society, this culture of hyper-political correctness is less about actually fighting for the downtrodden and more for people to feel better about themselves and use PC as a tool to stroke their own shallow egos. And PC Principal, for all his thuggish ways, is shown to genuinely care for the cause and expresses disgust at how his PC fraternity brothers use political correctness and progressive politics to look good in front of women.

** The first episode of Season 19, "Stunning and Brave", is one big TakeThat to internet "social justice warriors" and their motto of "no bad tactics, only bad targets", i.e. they use bullying, threats, violence, and public shaming in order to beat the [[OpinionMyopia wrongthink]] out of anyone who dares disagree with their ultra-progressive views.
** Freshly joining the cast is the PC Principal. To put it bluntly, he is nothing short of the AnthropomorphicPersonification of this trope.
