* ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' had occasional appearances from two GreekChorus political pundits, a left-wing Straw Feminist and a similarly stereotypical right-wing Radio/RushLimbaugh NoCelebritiesWereHarmed. The subplot climaxed in one of the last issues, when Jesse used his CompellingVoice to get them to stop arguing and "say what you really want". At which the Straw Feminist broke down about how sex-starved she was and how much she "wanted cock", and the conservative responded with an embarrassed "[[YouAreWhatYouHate I want cock too]]".

** A particularly extreme and unpopular example was the New 52 arc that revolved around the revelation that the Amazons reproduced by abducting, raping, and killing men, and selling the boy children that resulted to Hephaestos as slaves (although he then treated them pretty well). One of Creator/GregRucka's first orders of business in the Rebirth era was making clear that the whole thing was no longer canon.

Overlaps heavily with SoapboxSadie, though the latter is generally younger and her crusades aren't limited to feminism (though it's almost always included).

* Deconstructed in ''Series/Runaways2017''. [[SoapboxSadie Gert]] is a teenager in the midst of the "I know everything" stage and it's clear that her ideas of feminism are shallow and immature. As early as the first episode, she's called out for not respecting women who don't subscribe to her exact views, and over time she bonds with Karolina whom she originally viewed as her moral opposite.

As immature, such as ogling Chase with X-ray goggles under the guise of "payback" for how women have been objectified, then a few episodes later covering herself with a lead apron to keep him from doing the same. But even as early as the first episode, she's called out by religious conservative Karolina for not respecting women who don't subscribe to her exact views, and over time she bonds with Karolina whom she originally viewed as her moral opposite.the two form an unlikely bond.

* Two episodes of ''Series/RoboCopTheSeries'' feature a CorruptCorporateExecutive named Rochelle Carney, who outright said in her debut episode, "Inside Crime" that she considered everything a gender issue, even blaming her getting fired when she returns in "Sisters in Crime" on her being a woman and her boss, Aubrey Fox, being a louse who hit on her--and while Fox did indeed try to hook up with her, [[NeverMyFault she refused to acknowledge real reason she got fired]] was because she was in league with the series' {{archenemy}} "Pudface" Morgan (who, among other things, tried to kill Robo repeatedly, took a retirement home's citizen hostage, led a siege on OCP headquarters, and helped push a deinhibitor as a diet pill) as part of a ratings stunt.

* General Jinjur from ''Literature/TheMarvelousLandOfOz'' plotted the overthrow of King Scarecrow because she thought the Literature/LandOfOz was ruled by men for too long. Hypocritically (and cluelessly given half the countries in Oz are matriarchies complete with AmazonBrigade) her entire plan relied on exploiting the double standard in her favor, namely in guys not willing to fight them.
** May have actually been an AffectionateParody of the early women's movement, as Creator/LFrankBaum was actually the son-in-law of one of the movement's prime movers (whom he greatly respected), and advocated it himself. Elsewhere he portrays female rulers positively, along with women doing traditionally masculine activities.[[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Frank_Baum#Women.27s_suffrage_advocate has more on the subject]].

* ''Series/MurderOne'': {{Subverted}} in episode ten. A woman who works at a women's health clinic is a potential juror called in the Avedon trial, who's counseled rape victims in the past. The defense is afraid she might be biased given their client is charged with the rape and murder of a woman he was sleeping with, thinking she's a feminist who will thus have some hostile views of him. Their jury consultant points out things she might feel which are in their favor though, showing they shouldn't assume this just on the basis of her (inferred) feminism.

** {{Inverted|Trope}} in the episode "The Hobbit", to the extent she becomes OnlySaneMan of the episode. Wendy is frustrated by one of her fellow cheerleaders being dumped on for her looks and chastises Butters for dumping on her looks while liking Kim Kardashian (who died in a prior episode supposedly). However, when she tries to explain the dangers of Photoshop and on the body image, Butters think it's how she honestly looks like (despite doing the editing process in front of him for him to see.) This escalates as the other girls begin doing so and causes a cycle of egos to spiral out of control, much to Wendy's frustration. The entire thing goes so out of control and after [[MakesSenseInContext getting a talk from Kanye West]], Wendy tearfully resigns to conformity as she edits her own picture.
** One of the few (if only) male examples with PC Principal, with "PC People" being a rather odd euphemism for radical feminists. The reason for him being male is because PC Principal is also a StereotypeFlip; he's a character constantly shouting StrawFeminist rhetoric and ideals, but is every stereotype for a fraternity dudebro. Besides humor, the bizarre mix of character types is clearly meant to show how arrogant bullies can possess any viewpoint. However, he has now mellowed out a bit and become one of the OnlySaneMan of the show (though that's less about him and more on how everyone else has gone mad.)
