Added DiffLines:

* The third season of ''WebAnimation/GothamGirls'' had Caroline Greenway, who didn't appear to be concerned about the male population of Gotham City disappearing and made a lot of remarks that had strongly misandrist implications.

* HogwartsSchoolofPrayerAndMiracles has a lot of strawpeople, as everyone who doesn't agree with the very conservative author gets this treatment. Aunt Petunia has short hair and "never wears any makeup". The author goes on to describe her in negative terms, and it is pretty clear she is meant to be viewed as ugly, mannish feminist.

** The episode "Equal Frights" had a villain named Femme Fatale, a man-hating criminal who only stole Susan B. Anthony coins and [[StrawHypocrite liked to use the fact that she's a woman as an excuse to avoid punishment]]. She tried to convince the girls to stop helping men but her flawed logic is countered at the end by the more mainstream equality-based feminism of Sara Bellum and Miss Keane who teach the girls the difference between feminism and misandry. Not helping Femme Fatale's case were the fact that women were also hurt by her actions and that she ''didn't even know who Susan B. Anthony was'', or that said woman fought for the equality of '''both''' women and men alike (leading to a very good ShutUpHannibal moment by the girls). Writer Creator/LaurenFaust, herself a staunch feminist, later decided that the subject of feminism was too heavy for such a lighthearted family show and regretted writing it. Fans, however, felt that it handled the subject as well as it could.
** Ironically, Blossom was portrayed this way in the 2009 special "The Powerpuff Girls Rule", where her idea of a perfect world involved all the men being forced to stay at home and do housework.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'' occasionally portrayed V.E.N.O.M.'s sole female member Vanessa Warfield this way. It is most notable in the episode "Race Against Time" (where she calls M.A.S.K. member Brad Turner a "male swine") and in the tie-in comics by Creator/DCComics (where she makes several misandrist remarks about men being weak and easy to beat).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has Azania, once California, whose capital is Berkley, which begins with "Fair Discrimination" barring men from many areas of work and government service, and rapidly descends into slavery of men, mandatory abortions of male fetuses, and reproduction via cloning. The war between them and Victoria begins confusingly, with women in Victoria lobbying for intervention against the perversion of femininity, then Azania starts bombing, then their forces [[FauxActionGirl melt like snow]] in the face of male opposition, and we learn that they, as many feminists, are mostly upset because they couldn't get a man. This is in keeping with the plot, where a variety of StrawLiberal states are set up, and [[TakeThat knocked down]] by the [[AuthorTract story]].

* Averted with Lily from the unaired ''WesternAnimation/FatherOfThePride'' episode "The Siegfried and Roy Fantasy Experience Movie", who simply wants to teach women to be independent, gets along well with Kate's husband Larry when she meets him, and is deeply disturbed by Foo Lin's misandrist statements. The unfinished episode available in storyboard form on the DVD also has her attempt to help Kate's father Sartomi grow out of his dated sexist ways.

** Rare male example: in one episode Marge is shown to have gone out with one of her college teachers. He is very much a Straw feminist, not liking LIGHTHOUSES because [[FreudWasRight "anything penis shaped is bad."]]
