However, it turns out [[spoiler: Orain is actually gay and he is repulsed when he discovers Romilly's true gender during lovemaking. His assurances that 'he will not touch her' of course only make Romilly cry harder]].

* Inverted in the anime adaption of ''{{Karin}}'', where a flashback shows Ren thinking this was the case with his roommate, based on how he felt attracted to him. It turns out the guy was really a guy, and Ren was just reacting to his stress. [[UnreliableNarrator At least that's what we're told.]]
* Subverted in ''AngelDiary'', in which Bi-Wal seems to see through Dong-Young's disguise but in fact [[spoiler:they met long before the story began.]]

No matter [[PaperThinDisguise how flawless]] the SweetPollyOliver's [[WholesomeCrossdresser disguise]] at fooling her male peers, there is some primordial part of a man's brain that sees through the disguise... and is attracted to their new drinking buddy.

This is especially true for TheCasanova, whose refined "babe-dar" can detect estrogen even when the eyes can't. Of course, this will get very confusing and distressing to the unwitting male admirer. They'll be turned on and not know why, and if they're not too bright might say "have I met you before?" (which they have, only as a woman).

Expect the poor lech to have a lot of [[{{Gayngst}} sexual confusion]] about his "[[AmbiguouslyGay feelings]]" for "[[StupidSexyFlanders another guy]]", and be incredibly relieved when she [[SamusIsAGirl stops masquerading]]. Polly Oliver, if not oblivious to her effects, will (depending on the jerkiness of her admirer) feel guilty or gleeful. If she would normally pursue this guy romantically, she may reveal the ruse to mixed relief and feelings of betrayal.

* In ''CodeMonkeys'' Mary feels that she isn't being respected enough by her boss so she decides to dress up like a man and call herself Mitch. She tells everyone at work that Mary died, and that she wanted Mitch to continue his work. Her co-worker Jerry showed signs of having a crush on Mitch the moment he showed up, fantasized about him, and even admitted he was gay for Mitch in front of a crowd before he kissed him and blew her disguise when her mustache came off.

* Inverted with UsefulNotes/AnneBonny and Mary Read, a legendary pair of 18th century female pirates. When they met, Anne Bonny was openly female, but Mary Read was a SweetPollyOliver. Mary eventually revealed her gender when Anne developed a crush on her. They later went on to become BackToBackBadasses. Though it's not known how far their relationship went after that, by the time their ship was captured and the crew brought to justice, both women were pregnant[[note]]Anne presumably by her lover, Calico Jack, and Mary by a passenger of a ship she captured. The real CrowningMomentOfAwesome being that, since they were both pregnant, neither could be sentenced to death, despite a long and unashamed career of piracy until after the children were born. Unfortunately, Read [[DownerEnding died before giving birth]]. Bonny disappeared from the record, but is believed to have been rescued by her merchant father and lived a long and presumably straight life in colonial South Carolina[[/note]].
