* Jane Rizzoli of the Series/RizzoliAndIsles series is absolutely miserable and uncomfortable in the dresses she has to wear as her pregnancy progresses, as their a far cry from the dowdy pantsuits that she prefers.

** A clearer example are Jaime Lannister's two most important female relationships. One, Queen Cersei (the one in a dress) is manipulative and [[YourCheatingHeart unfaithful]], with a talent for ruining everything she tries to meddle in.[[note]]She is also [[BrotherSisterIncest Jaime's sister]].[[/note]] The other, Brienne of Tarth (the one in plate armor), is the closest thing Westeros has to a true KnightInShiningArmor. While in an (explicit) relationship with Cersei, Jaime acts like a JerkAss and [[KickTheDog kicks puppies]] without a second thought; while in a ([[WillTheyOrWontThey budding]] and [[SlapSlapKiss rough-starting]]) relationship with Brienne, he both rediscovers his inner goodness and becomes more successful as a knight and military commander. [[{{Deconstruction}} Interestingly]], Cersei is a BoomerangBigot who hates other women, tries to prove herself "better" than they are, and wishes she were a man, while Brienne respects other women whether they conform to traditional gender roles or not.

* The first known wargame, ''Little Wars'', published by HGWells in 1913, advertised itself as "a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for ''that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books''" (emphasis mine).

On the other hand, given the time period, the fact that [[FairForItsDay girls were acknowledged as players at all]] is somewhat surprising, especially considering that even today certain wargames seem to go out of their way to exclude them.

* ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'': Averted in one story where Erma finds out, with Toki's coaxing, that she finds that occasionally indulging her feminine side, like buying and wearing a sexy dress and attracting the appreciative stares of males, is fun. However, she still is no less a soldier on this kind of off-time such as she spots a possible terrorist with a gun and she and Toki have him covered with their own side arms instantly. It turns out to be only a camera with a pistol grip, but everyone assures Erma that it was a reasonable call.

* Bendis' run on ''ComicBook/UncannyXMen'' mentions this trope. The female recruits are ashamed of wanting to go shopping "like normal girls". For- shock horror- ''clothes''. And ''soap''. And ''books''. They have a whole spiel justifying it, but their teachers (of both genders) understand immediately and consider it a good idea.



* Averted in ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen''. If Elody completely refrains from raising her courtly talents, she'll likely alienate her allies and stand alone against her enemies. As one review put it, "You can't make a successful [[Series/GameOfThrones Arya]] without adding a little Sansa."

* In ''Choice of Kung-Fu'', if the player chooses to make their avatar female, this trope will potentially affect dialogue. When she sees a badly injured woman collapsed on the road, she has three options: to immediately help, to cautiously investigate the situation further, or to callously walk past on the basis that "it's women like her that make it so hard for women like me to get respect". Doing the latter will [[spoiler:fail Master Zhuge's SecretTestOfCharacter and earn her dislike. Zhuge is female, incidentally]].



* Parodied in ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' when [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2012-12-18 Monique]] [[TenderTears cries over]] a TV show, and gets her "strong woman" card suspended. (Other characters have also had various cards suspended for not behaving stereotypically. For instance, Squigley loses his Bro card after he dares to acknowledge the atheleticism of female tennis players rather than just watching for panty shots.)

* Subverted in the film "Resident Evil", where the character Alice spends the film wearing a little red dress - and combat boots - while kicking zombie dogs in the head. It was an interesting contrast to the ultra-tough [[VasquezAlwaysDies Rain Ocampo]], who wears full black combat gear.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** Avoided in the ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' {{DLC}} "Kasumi's Stolen Memory". New teammate Kasumi is a ClassyCatBurglar who enjoys a number of more feminine pursuits such as composing poetry in her off hours, but she's no less an ActionGirl than {{Ladette}} [[PlayerCharacter FemShep]].
** And PlayedForLaughs in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' when [=FemShep=] and Miranda Lawson try to have a "feminine" conversation, bringing up various stereotypically female topics only to discover that neither one of them can even manage a complete sentence on the subjects in question.
