That's not what The Unfair Sex means.
[[TheUnfairSex Your nasty husband has cheated on you and left.]] You're out of work, you've got a baby to feed and you're one missed rent payment from the street. You realize that the boys at school really liked you. Maybe you could make some quick fast cash waiting tables--in a bikini. Or pole dancing. Or [[TheOldestProfession going all the way]], if needed.

Wow. How long has that first-person-led Natter been tacked onto the "Karate Bears" example? Almost four years, according to the edit history. Also removing completely vague Zero Context Examples; don't reference the page image or page quote in an example, as they can be changed at any time if the relevant forum thread approves the change.
* Fantine from LesMiserables.

* Fantine from LesMiserables. ''Literature/LesMiserables'' is fired from her factory job for having a child out of wedlock, which also makes it impossible for her to find any other legitimate employment. Leaving her daughter with the money-grubbing Thénardiers does not help her financial situation, and when she has run out of other things to sell, she resorts to selling her body.

* {{Hung}} [[GenderFlip gender-flips]] this, but otherwise plays it absolutely straight: the main character is behind on his mortgage, and wants to get his kids back from his wife (who also cheated on him)... his only talent is a [[BiggerIsBetterInBed huge wang]], so he decides to try his luck at hooking.

** Wait a minute. Her ''son'' was trying to watch her perform in a peep show in the "Open Your Heart" video? No, not weird at all. Actually, The Other Wiki offers [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonna_videography that it was just a boy wandering through the area]] who gained entrance into the strip club and prompted her to escape from her life as a stripper. *** Seems like the kid was just impatient to see his mother at the end of the day. Since they literally dance off into the night together, it's reasonable to imagine that family time is appreciated after the days she has. *** The best evidence in favor is probably that the boy doesn't seem to be trying to sneak in to watch at all, but is actually waiting (what seems to be quite a long time) for her to come out so they can leave together.

* On ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Peter and his friends are trailing Lois to find out why she's acting suspicious, and Quagmire says "Maybe she's a prostitute! But only on the weekends, to pay for her mom's kidney dialysis... like in my fantasy... You know, let's start again. Hi, I'm Quagmire!" * Mrs. Muntz, Nelson's mother, from ''TheSimpsons'', although she isn't very attractive. One episode featured Nelson's father returning, but he hasn't been mentioned since then and it is implied that the family still consists of Nelson and his mother.
