* In ''Comicbook/ArchieComics'', both Veronica and Cheryl Blossom have been criticized many times by other characters for dressing too provocatively, being too flirtatious or 'easy', and going out with too many boys. Usually the story will cast the girls in a bad light for this (worse than for male casanovas like Archie) and often punish them at the end.

* Elphaba's mother Melena from ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' gets a good amount of this from her childhood nanny after she ends up pregnant with Elphaba. Elphaba is not her father's biological daughter, instead being the child of Elphaba and [[spoiler:the future Wizard]] after he [[ChildByRape drugged Melena]] and raped her unconscious body. Melena's lack of a memory of her impregnation only provokes Nanny more. The fact Melena [[ReallyGetsAround slept around often]] in her youth is also a source of Nanny's complaints.

* Some ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' fans don't like [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Tharja]] for many [[AbusiveParents valid reasons]], but one of the more minor reasons tend to be her [[{{Stripperiffic}} outfit]]. Tharja herself, however, is mortified when she realizes how revealing her outfit is, which makes the choice of clothing sound less about any conscious choice on her part and more about catering to the MaleGaze.

* In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon [[VideoGame/HarvestMoonBackToNature More Friends of Mineral Town]]'' the Kappa is the one bachelor who will never live with the player character if married, but as with every other marriage candidate, the PC becomes pregnant very shortly after the wedding. Every other husband will notice the PC seems unwell and take her to the doctor; the Kappa, however, just appears in the PC's house one day and says "You, pregnant," and then disappears again, prompting a "..." reaction from her. Then she goes to the doctor and finds out it's true. All the doctor says to the her is "You're going to have a baby" when she shows up at the clinic pregnant and with no husband - no "Congratulations!" like with every other spouse, - and Elli is completely silent.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Greg's cousin gets mad at him for having Steven when he wasn't married to his mother. The two were in a relationship for several years before they decided to have a child, but it wasn't like Greg and Rose could have likely gotten married anyway (what with Rose being a StarfishAlien).

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', this is the Confederation's hat, since they are extreme social conservatives who believe in strict morals. Their leaders relish the destruction of "the sluttiness that had overflowed the [[FallenStatesOfAmerica late United States]]," and strive instead to restore something like the social values of Colonial America (complete with witch-burnings), so it is little surprise that they believe all sexuality belongs in the marriage and nowhere else.

*** Emily herself accuses Brandon of treating her like a tramp after he breaks up with her even though he's actually done nothing of the sort--although he's (rightfully) complained about her crazy behavior, he's said nothing to indicate that she's promiscuous.



* ''Promised Land''. When confronted by the man who tried to rape her a few days earlier, middle daughter Dinah pleads for mercy, asking how he would feel if someone where attacking his own daughters like this. He angrily declares, "'''''My''''' daughters are good, decent girls!", insinuating that Dinah deserved to be attacked because she was walking home late at night.

** Averted in her later songs however, which Taylor herself has attributed to simply growing up. ''So'' averted, in fact, that she now has a single, "Wildest Dreams," that's pretty obviously about the joys of having a one-night stand.

* In ''Literature/SweetValleyHigh'', Annie Whitman is called "Easy" Annie at school and has a "reputation" that the cheerleading squad thinks will make them look bad if they let her join. After Jessica and her friends spend the book bullying Annie to try to force her off the team, she [[spoiler:[[DrivenToSuicide tries to kill herself]]]] and they learn the moral that slut shaming is bad. Jessica herself suffers this from her sister Elizabeth, who constantly chastises her for having many boyfriends (hypocritically forgetting that she herself often cheats on her own boyfriends)

** An especially cruel example in the book ''Nowhere To Run'', when a character's WickedStepmother comes home to find her practicing the drums with her bandmate. Despite the fact that they are doing nothing improper, the woman screams at her that she's turning into a tramp like her MissingMom.

* While the exact word isn't used, Eleanor Series/{{Bramwell}} gets this from her father after he learns that she had a romantic weekend with her boyfriend--a major taboo in the Victorian England setting of the series. Later in the series, her fiance (a different man), does the same thing after she admits that she cheated on him.

* ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''. All of the girls do this to each other at varying intervals:
** Brenda taunts Kelly about her previous reputation as the school bimbo after running into Kelly on a date with her ex-boyfriend Dylan. Throughout the series, it was well established that this was a sore point for Kelly.
** Brenda herself gets this when she's wrongly accused of using the CastingCouch to secure the lead in the school play.
** They, along with Andrea and Donna, apply this to newcomer Emily Valentine, upon noticing her flirting with all of the guys in the group. Especially bad as that's ALL she's doing--despite her unconventional looks and "Bad Girl" attitude, Emily is just as virginal as the latter two.
** Valerie gets this after coming to town--from ''[[{{Hypocrite}} Kelly]]''.

* Elsewhere in the Whedonverse, in the episode "Shinding" of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', A gentleman named Murphy gallantly comes to Kaylee's defense when the latter is being snarked at by some rich women... by insulting the ring-leader for her 'easiness':
--->'''Murphy:'''Why, Banning Miller! What a vision you are in your fine dress. It must have taken a dozen slaves a dozen days to get you into that getup. 'Course, your daddy tells me it takes the space of a schoolboy's wink to get you out of it again.

* ''LostInAusten'': Darcy shames Amanda when he discovers she's previously lived with another man (although he is not aware that she's from the 21st century), emphatically stating that he cannot marry a woman who is "not a maid". Lydia elopes with Bingley rather than Wickham (see Literature below for ''PrideAndPrejudice''), but they avoid scandal when they admit nothing sexual happened between them. Jane ultimately annuls her marriage to Collins so she can be with Bingley, but her reputation is so damaged that they move to America. Wickham and the Darcys agree to pretend that Wickham raped Georgiana so she will be saved the shame from having made advances towards him.

* In an unmarked quest in ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' the niece of Haelga, a promiscuous [[SexGoddess Dibella]]-worshipping innkeeper located in Riften, makes you publicly humiliate her aunt for her behaviour.

to:

* In an unmarked quest ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this frequently happens to the followers of Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty who is also associated with the [[LoveGoddess carnal and sexual aspects of love]]. The primary means of worshiping her involves the "Dibellan Arts", a particular form of lovemaking and sexual practices. Given that most of her followers [[LadyLand are women]], many are forced to practice these Arts in ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' private for fear of this trope.
