* ''Theatre/TheVaginaMonologues'' has rather controversial piece where a character is raped by men multiple times as a child...but becomes a lesbian because she is "healed" when seduced (while underage, making it statutory rape) by another woman. This piece is censored to remove lines like her declaring the experience to be "[[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization good rape]]" and raising her age from 13 to 16, mostly because in the view of the monologues, this experience is a ''[[WarpedAesop good thing]]''. Some performances cut this monologue entirely because for many people, it makes the rest of the play almost unwatchable.

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] in ''ButImACheerleader'' when Jan says that she's actually straight and that she was just sent to the camp because she's butch, but the counselors told her that she ''has'' to be lesbian because she was molested as a child.

* The victims of [[spoiler:Woody Goodman]] on ''Series/VeronicaMars''. Of the 4 we know about, one was definitely gay, another was sexually "on the fence" (as another character put it), and one... well... it's subject to AlternateCharacterInterpretation, but there's definitely subtext. The fourth victim we know about (or was strongly implied) doesn't have his sexuality brought into the whole thing, but he was less important than the first 3.
* Beecher from ''Series/{{OZ}}'' becomes bisexual after being raped in prison.
* Implied by Mike Tyson in a press conference, where he responded to a (male) heckler in the crowd with "I'll fuck you 'til you love me, faggot!"

* Happens in Creator/ChuckPalahniuk's novel ''Literature/{{Pygmy}}''. This may be some kind of commentary on this phenomenon in fiction since Chuck Palahniuk himself is gay and has written several gay characters before.

* Happens in In Creator/ChuckPalahniuk's novel ''Literature/{{Pygmy}}''. ''Literature/{{Pygmy}}'', the titular VillainProtagonist (a TeenSuperspy sent by a PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny to destroy America) brutally sodomizes a [[TheBully bully]] named Trevor in a bathroom stall as revenge for harassing him, causing him (referred to as "Trevor bitch anus" from there on out) to grow sexually attracted to Pygmy. This may be some kind of commentary on this phenomenon in fiction fiction, since Chuck Palahniuk himself is gay and has written several gay characters before.

* The now-infamous ''Hamlet's Father'' by ''Creator/OrsonScottCard'' has as part of its backstory Hamlet's father raping pretty much the entire male cast (except maybe Claudius and Polonious), turning the lot of them gay. This is why Hamlet's insane. Also, [[spoiler:Horatio killed Hamlet's dad as revenge for the aforementioned orientation-destroy sodomy]]. And now you know where all the scorn came from.

* Relatively justified in IlivaisX, because for Iriana, straight sex would feel the same as getting repeatedly electrocuted for anyone else (due to inverting reception of pain and pleasure), which she found out the hard way. Several times. Before the age of 15. It makes sense that for her to enjoy any kind of intimacy at all, it would have be with a girl simply because the painful aspect isn't even possible.

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'': [[spoiler: Touga]] is raped by his stepfather in the movie which makes all his relationships with both men and women fall into nightmare territory. He [[TheCasanova goes through woman like tissue paper]], [[spoiler: sleeps with Miki in a scene hinting at dubious consent in the novels]], has a close relationship with his adoptive sister Nanami, has a thing for Utena (and approaches her in the novels after his 'scene' with Miki which makes Miki worry for her), and is implied to have slept with Akio. The relationship between Nanami and Touga especially falls into NoYay, thanks to her sheer obsession with him and the way he emotionally manipulates her. It all reaches a head in episode 32, in which Touga suddenly tries to rape Nanami in Akio's car (which she fights off in horror) and gets angry because if sex isn't what she wanted, then what does she want? Actually, the sheer level of bullshit he pulls on her in that episode is nightmarish in itself. This careens straight into fridge horror territory if you buy the theory that he was molested by his step father. That Touga's idea of family love has been so completely warped makes the entire mess between the two of them chilling, to say the least.
