Added DiffLines:

* A [[Literature/SweetValleyHigh Sweet Valley Twins]] book had the girls dealing with a homeroom teacher who had this attitude. Literally--he takes the money collected for the class to ''buy'' lunch on a class trip and gives it to the girls for them to buy supplies and ''make'' lunch for the entire class. He also assigns the girls clean up duties and seems genuinely incapable of believing that the girls are just as adept at sports and class offices as the boys are.


Added DiffLines:

** Dr. Dylan West actually does ''not'' have this attitude, but pretends to occasionally in order to irritate the local StrawFeminist Dr. Lu Delgado.

Remember that "Stay In The Kitchen" is a NonIndicativeName; the trope deals not with demands that women cook, but with incidents where men attempt to belittle women (or, although quite rare, protect them)from danger by insisting that they stay uninvolved or only involve themselves on the periphery (and in doing so, act on the tacit assumption that women ''cannot'' protect themselves or fight competently).

competently). For the version directed at children or otherwise with the assumption that the person's age or experience rather than their gender makes them unequipped to deal with what the speaker is dealing with, see MostDefinitelyNotAccompanyingUs.

* ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'' make it clear on many occasions that a woman's place is in the kitchen or in other feminine duties, rather than on the front lines of battle. Interestingly enough, this also ends up being a BrokenAesop, as the women are actually fairly capable when they're allowed to fight (In [[Literature/HarryPotter Battle With the Witches]], Ebony gets three out of four of the keys- killing Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, and converting Hermione- while by contrast, Michael gets his off Ebony's corpse after she's killed by Hogwarts, thwarting his attempt use her to get close to Dumbledore]]).

* Near the end of ''Film/DemolitionMan'', John Spartan is so determined on going to confront Simon Phoenix alone that he actually knocks out Huxley out with a stun-stick in order to prevent her from following him. Nevermind the fact that she has proven her value to him many times over, including in a fight just a few minutes earlier where she beat up mooks with her martial arts skills and saved Spartan's life by shooting one who was about to kill him. This was later ridiculed by WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic in his review of the film, going as far as to put together a compilation of all the things Huxley could have done to help Spartan in the final battle when he's getting pummeled.

To Spartan credit, being [[spoiler: wrongly]] incarcerated over the death of hostage can make it quite [[ItsPersonal personal]] and several scènes have developped the animosity between him and Phoenix.

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel ''Ishmael'' by Creator/BarbaraHambly, a ST/Here Come The Brides crossover -- an amnesiac Spock is taken in by Aaron Stemple. At one point two characters have gone missing in the rainy Seattle woods and Spock suggests Biddy Cloom lend a hand in the search. "But she's a woman!" says Stemple. "What has her gender to do with her ability to locate missing persons?" asks Spock.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe, this was pretty much [[PlanetOfHats part of the hats worn by Ferengi]]. Women were considered property and were pretty much barred from doing anything, even ''wearing clothes''. However, by the time of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', it would take Quark's mother, Ishka, to finally drive home that Ferengi women could help bring in even ''more'' profit (their major hat) by wearing clothes and starting businesses. By the end of the series, the reforms are in full swing and that part of the hat is on the way out.

* Shirou of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' during the Fate route repeatedly tells Saber (and only Saber) that girls shouldn't be fighting and that she should leave it to him. [[SubvertedTrope This is actually a shallow excuse]] cooked up because of a combination of Shirou's [[MartyrWithoutACause martyr complex]] and Saber being near-fatally injured protecting him from Berserker. When his love interest is an ActionGirl who ''doesn't'' spend half the story on life support he proves much more egalitarian.
