* This the reason Yoshimoto Women's Pro Wrestling Jd' failed to turn around after it was turned into JD Star by Hidenobu Ichimaru. Jd' had already lost its purpose after Jaguar Yokota left, as it was created to push her but Ichimaru's attempts to salvage it revolved around scouting girls with model level good looks to train in the jd' dojo in an effort to produce wrestlers who would become actresses. The process produced both the worst and the best wrestlers to ever come out of Jd' but the very ideas of looks being ''first'' priority and ''entering'' pro wrestling as a stepping stone to something that wasn't even a sport were too off putting to the wider puroresu community, with some joshi eschewing JapanesePoliteness to state an "athtress" had no business in the ring with them.

* When World Wonder Ring STARDOM started up, one of the {{audience alienating premise}}s was it's imitation of the "glamour" approach JD Star took up midway through it's lifespan, with the hiring of swimsuit model or "gravure idol" Yuzuki Aikawa being a particularly strong point of contention. While Aikawa would quickly earn the sympathy of fans after recovering from a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown thorough trashing]] given by Nanae Takahashi(which also established STARDOM as the most violent non shoot, non {{garbage|wrestler}} joshi fed), several other wrestlers remained [[TheResenter resentful]], to the point to ruin "Yuzupon's" looks so she couldn't return to modeling became a RunningGag.

* Lisa (Creator/GraceKelly) frequently wears {{Pimped Out Dress}}es in ''RearWindow'', but after she risks her life to help expose the murderer, she wears a blouse and blue jeans in the closing scene. She also does this to impress her boyfriend, who thinks she couldn't adapt to his lifestyle.

* There was some backlash against the supposed {{Chickification}} of Dax in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' when she eventually hooked up with Worf. Essentially, she was always an old soul in a young body and some fans objected to that "young body" part getting played up when she did things like jump into his arms and get broody, despite the fact that she was an ActionGirl throughout the series and even [[spoiler:after she died, when Worf and the gang had to go on a dangerous mission to ensure she got into the ProudWarriorRaceGuy version of Heaven.]] ** And the action that got them together? She picked up a sword and challenged him to a duel. Worf tended to suffer serious injury when they slept together, even. ** The saddest part is that the ''only'' way in which Jadzia Dax was traditionally "feminine" was that she fell in love and entered a relationship. Otherwise, the writers tried to load her up with every positive "masculine" trait possible. She could kick ass in martial arts plus a variety of specialized weapon combat, she had the experience of multiple previous male lives, she'd most recently BEEN A CROTCHETY OLD MILITARY MAN, she was shown as being cool-headed, brave, and even stoic when necessary, she liked to use the Holosuites to indulge in eye-candy hotties giving her massages, she had Curzon Dax's history of being guy-buddies with Captain Sisko, she flirted with the native cuties on whatever planet they were visiting, and so on and so forth. Yet romance somehow "negated" her "masculine side." Heaven forbid she be someone traditionally "feminine" like Keiko O'Brien, who, during the course of the show, [[RelationshipUpgrade gets engaged]], [[RunawayBride gets cold feet]], [[WeddingDay gets married]], [[BornInAnElevator gives]] [[ScreamingBirth birth]], moves to a space station along with their young daughter to accompany her husband's career move, works first as a civilian botanist, then as an [[{{Schoolmarm}} elementary school teacher]], gets pregnant again, and has a second child. She not only does calligraphy, she also [[FeminineWomenCanCook cooks]] -- and ''bakes.'' * Subverted by ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'''s Caprica 6.

* Zoe Washburn of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', of all people, gets this treatment from the [[CausticCritic livejournal]] [[WitchHunt blog]] [[{{Jerkass}} of]] [[StrawFeminist allecto]]. ** Specifically in the episode "War Stories", where Wash [[spoiler: survives hours, possibly even a day, of brutal torture, then leads the effort to rescue the captain with roughly thirty seconds of rest first, while knowing they probably have days]]. Zoe gets this treatment because [[spoiler: she rewards Wash by cooking soup. ]] *** The same critic (I presume) also accuses Wash of abusing Zoe. Her (the critic's) argument for this is that all white male/black female relationships she's known have been abusive. Never mind that the show makes it abundantly clear that Zoe wears the pants in the relationship and any attempt to abuse her would put Wash in a body cast for a year, this woman claims her own limited experiences are conclusive evidence. *** The same critic later attempts to make her point by claiming that when it came to the episode's bounty, Zoe began to say something about it being marked for the Alliance and Mal telling her to shut up (in Chinese), which would infer that Mal used his power as a man to dominate and "abuse" his female (and black, as the critic wastes no time pointing out) subordinate. In fact, it was Wash who had made the comment about the bounty being marked, and Mal telling Wash to shut up, not Zoe. *** Whether Mal aimed his remarks at Zoe or Wash wouldn't have mattered, really. He wasn't dominating or abusing his female or his male. He was giving an order as the ''captain''. Just because he's usually easygoing and pleasant-demeanored with his crew doesn't mean he doesn't expect them to jump when he tells them to. Especially since when he decides it's time to start giving orders, the orders involved are often things like "fire at will" and "run like hell." ** Allecto somehow applies this to ''all'' of the female characters. She rags on Kaylee for having the [[SarcasmMode gall to want to hook up with Simon]], Zoe for...erm being married...? (she seems to think that all marriages ought to be celibate or something), and Inara for her profession. Neverminding the fact that Inara is the only one on the ship who makes a steady living. *** Allecto appears to be a rare type of really ''extreme'' StrawFeminist who believes [[HetIsEw it is inherently impossible for heterosexual sex to be consensual]].

** Rough and Tumble Tomboys Rainbow Dash and Applejack are not any more competent or effective than the rest of the cast in a crisis (perhaps even ''[[TheWorfEffect less]]'' so). *** And neither of them hesitates for more than a moment to wear the dresses offered by Rarity, or to help her by appearing in a fashion show. If there is any resistance, it's usually that Applejack finds the dress impractical, rather than it being too feminine.

* On the July 28, 2012 episode of ''Wrestling/RingOfHonor TV'', there was a clip of Wrestling/SaraDelRey attacking Maria Kanellis during a brawl between Eddie Edwards and Mike Bennett. This cut to an Edwards promo where he said that he could do anything he wanted to Mike Bennett but he couldn't put his hands on Maria, so he got someone who could. Sara walked into the scene and called Maria "disgusting. You worry about your hair and your nails when a real woman would break you in half."
