* BareYourMidriff: ''The'' female fanservice trope of the '90s, especially in music videos. While fairly common in the '80s, it was usually paired with high waisted skirts or pants, leaving only a bit of the stomach visible. The '90s took it further and saw navels fully, constantly and proudly exposed, to the point that it was so widespread that it wasn't considered risque anymore. To compensate, early '00s pop stars got even ''skimpier''.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: During the late '80s and early '90s in North America, the concept of political correctness began spreading around the country.

Despite being commonly associated with left-wingers, even some of them joined the backlash, such as Creator/BillMaher and his talk show ''Series/PoliticallyIncorrect''.
