* In real life, David Reimer had his penis destroyed as a baby during a circumcision. John Money (a psychologist) then encouraged and oversaw David being sexually re-assigned to female and raised as such. John Money reported the case as a success, and used it as evidence that gender identity is environmental. However, it was later revealed that David had never identified as female, and began living as a male at age 15. He suffered from suicidal depression starting at 13, and eventually killed himself at 38.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sporus Sporus]] was a slave boy who had the misfortune of resembling Nero's dead wife Poppaea. Nero had Sporus castrated, forced him to dress and act like a woman, forcibly married him, and called him Poppaea. After Nero was killed Sporus was also forced to marry Nymphidius Sabinus (the Captain of the Praetorian Guard) and then Emperor Otho. Afterwards Emperor Vitellius planned on having a gladiator rape Sporus for the entertainment of the public, so Sporus committed suicide to avoid this fate and likely to put an end to the abuse he kept suffering. Sporus was less than twenty when he died, so he would likely have still been a child when Nero first castrated him.

* Seishirou Tsugumi from ''{{Manga/Nisekoi}}'', was raised as a boy because Claude, her guardian, ''couldn't tell that she was a girl''. She just sorta went along with it because she didn't particularly care. Somehow, despite her now being a teenager with a very obviously female figure, Claude ''still'' thinks she's a boy.

* When Rindou Ranmaru shows up in ''Manga/BinbogamiGa'', people specifically bring up this trope (the very title of the chapter/episode is "Is This That So-Called Girl-Raised-As-A-Boy Pattern?"). It's actually not ''quite'' the same thing -- Ranmaru has never been told she ''is'' a boy, just forced to live like one.

* ''Film/FourFliesOnGreyVelvet'': The killer is one of Argento's most tortured ones as [[spoiler: she was beaten and mistreated by her father for being a girl and for not acting like a boy. She kept her sex identity intact, but sadly not her sanity. He only managed to make her hate him to pieces. She was so obsessed with revenge against her abusive father that she married Roberto solely because he looked like him and wanted to finally take out her vengeful fantasies.]]
