An admirer is putting the moves on someone who clearly has other plans. He rebuffs her advances by simply saying "Sorry, I'm gay", regardless of his true sexuality. This trope is meant to be gender-neutral but for [[GirlOnGirlIsHot some reason]], "Sorry, I'm a lesbian" usually just doesn't work as well (not that "Sorry, I'm gay" works [[YaoiFangirl all of the time]] for men either). And saying "Sorry, I'm {{asexual|ity}}" just gets confused stares.

* Used later in the parent show ''Series/DoctorWho'' where Bill Potts finds a place to live with other students, and one of the male ones fancies her. Bill lets him down politely because she's a lesbian, and he immediately apologizes. They both laugh it off, and it's a nice tension breaker before the creepy stuff starts back up.

* Pop star Ricky Martin, who came out of the closet as a gay man in 2010, has remarked that despite having publicly stated both his homosexuality and that he is in a relationship with another man, women still proposition him.

** He mentions in his autobiography when he lost his virginity and how he found it to be meaningless, though he liked the girl. This could be just because it was awkward or maybe an early sign of his homosexuality.

Added DiffLines:

* The trope is employed with a twist in the episode "Bot Seeks Bot" of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. A woman at a bar makes a pass at the man next to her, who engages her enthusiastically. Too enthusiastically: He gushes about her outfit, orders them both appletinis, and even does a wrist flip. She walks away disappointed. The irony is that the man is O.S.I. agent Shoreleave, who being thoroughly gay and MachoCamp acts like this all the time. The double irony is that he was undercover at a supervillain nightclub, so in effect he preserved his cover by acting exactly like himself.

* In ''Webcomic/ItSucksToBeWeegie'', Link is Luigi's popular, attractive, and (at first) only best friend who has to fight off the ladies with a stick (while Luigi is ignored). He's shown on this page to use this trope as his excuse for not being flattered by Daisy's fawning over him, but other times he [[AmbiguouslyGay shows indications that he might have been telling the truth]]. In general, he doesn't care much for his female fan following, but there are specific examples like when Luigi begins to complain about [[SamusIsAGirl being hit on by Samus whom he mistook for a guy since she was still in armor]] and Link thinks he's going to talk about "that incident in '93" which was "a really awkward time" for Link.

Phil simply responds with, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint "Me too, been into them all my life, we'll have a gay wedding. Tell you what, I'll be the 'dude' in the relationship."]]
