* Parodied in ''[[Film/{{DEBS}} D.E.B.S.]]'' (2003). The villainess Lucy Diamond is more than willing to sink the entire continent of Australia in frustration over not being able to form an emotionally satisfying lesbian relationship. Fortunately she is redeemed by the love of an incredibly hot secret agent in a [[SchoolgirlLesbians plaid skirt]]. Then there was Lucy's blind date Ninotchka, who was clearly not all there and completely lost it when Lucy tried to back out of their date.

* In ''Lost and Delirious'' (2001), the main character learns that her boarding school roommates are in love. One girl's family pitches a fit, and she goes to sleep with the first guy she sees, and the other girl goes completely insane, chasing eagles in the woods and [[spoiler: she commits suicide at the end. It's even worse because the older teacher tries to save her by sharing her own forbidden love.]]
** Paulie's much less palatable in the book: She not only [[spoiler:dresses up as a guy, but deceives the entire school population into thinking she has a brother]], but she worships King Kong and she strings (the much ''less'' naive) Mouse along much further. Her own sexuality is never mentioned, although there's a brief scene with Tori, who professes a crush on "Lewis". The older teacher is still in a forbidden romance (here explicitly stated when Paulie and Mouse find letters from the teachers), but this is better justified by deliberate ValuesDissonance (the book's set in the 50's).

-->''Pym'': Do you suggest that Miss Nash is not normal?
-->''Desterro'': Oh, Beau. She is a strong-minded creature, and so has suffered less, perhaps. But would you call her friendship for Innes quite normal? ''Nice,'' of course (''she added hastily''), quite irreproachable. But normal, no. That David and Jonathan relationship. It is a very happy one, no doubt, but it (''she waved her arm to summon an appropriate word'') -- it ''excludes'' so much.

* Several characters of ''Series/CuteyHoneyTheLive''. The title character, Honey, is lusted after by another female main character, Yuki. Yuki gets extremely jealous and possessive although they never develop a romance, her insanity builds up to the point where she becomes the main villain. Additionally, another main character, Miki, initially appears to be somewhat insane (introduced in a prison, then slaughters a bunch of men attacking the prisoners; proceeding to become a hero until her death, only to be brought back to life, only to be merged (in the midst of a lot of lesbian subtext) with Honey to help her defeat the Psycho Lesbian villain Yuki. That's not all, however; Mayumi, a sadist teacher who likes to perform an ambiguous lesbian sex act involving raw eggs on her students, develops a passionate attraction towards Miki, whilst fighting the heroes throughout the series. In the end, in Miki's last moments, she finally shares a kiss with her.
** For added '''wrong''', a good deal of Mayumi's fights with Miki consist of one groping the other.

* Reimi from ''Manga/BambooBlade'' has [[StalkerWithACrush stalked]] Miyako from the shadows ever since the latter had [[CuteAndPsycho brutally]] rebuffed the advances of the former's crush in middle school (though the two attend different high schools). It soon emerges that, rather than wanting revenge on the boy's behalf, Reimi had become enamoured with how cool Miyako looked; she even has {{nosebleed}}s when she recalls the incident. However, she's not exactly the most subtle of stalkers; during a kendo sparring session between the two schools, Reimi walks right into the dojo, claiming to be in the photography club, and spends the whole time taking pictures of the weary Miyako.

* Nearly every major lesbian/bisexual female character in ''Creator/Marvel'' continuity has been assigned some degree of mental instability. The bisexual [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Skein]], for instance, married an older man and then killed him for his money; [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} Man-Killer/Amazon]] used to be a man-hating militant feminist; [[ComicBook/TheOrder Mulholland Black]] went so crazy [[spoiler:that her own teammates put her down]], etc. Even the ones without criminal pasts have been portrayed as less than fully sane; The ''[[ComicBook/TheLoners Loners]]'' miniseries portrayed bisexual [[ComicBook/PowerPack Lightspeed]] as being the superhero equivalent of a FormerChildStar, with all the attendant mental baggage, while the lesbian [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Karolina Dean]] is bipolar, according to the Marvel Handbooks.

* Commander Sullamander from ''FanFic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria''; the lover of the previous commander ([[{{Lolicon}} supposedly since she was a foal]]), Sullamander ruled the Celestine Junta with an iron hoof, executing anyone that spoke out against her and once attempting to ban or severely limit heterosexual unions. At the end of her life, she had gone full crazy and demanded that her soldiers worship her as a god, even as her enemies were already breaking through her forces and on their way to kill her. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Of course, her lesbian tendencies were played up in sources by propaganda or less-learned scholars whose minds were too far in the gutter.]]

This trope carries uncomfortable subtext: go straight or go crazy. Or ''at least'' [[BrokenAesop have the decency of being bisexual]] so you can be [[GirlOnGirlIsHot of proper use for men.]] Add to that the way that real-life lesbians are often seen as irrational or man-hating by both straight people of both genders as well as gay men, and it begins to look like a DiscreditedTrope.
