* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', where the titular character suddenly goes missing, Sandy Cheeks rallies the whole town to find him (he was hiding underneath a rock, specifically Patrick's house). When they couldn't find him, Sandy gets more desperate, forcing them into hazardous, potentially deadly environments like "leech farms". One of the exhausted townsfolk invokes this trope, and Sandy says "That's a good idea!" [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Use the children to crawl into small places you couldn't normally reach!]]".

* When the trailer for Film/SilentNightDeadlyNight was 1st seen, many parents were offended by the fact that the film was about a serial killer in a Santa suit and that it would scar kids if they saw it and were protesting the film hoping it would get pulled from theaters. Even worse, they were more worried that with the film having a guy in a Santa suit would ruin kids by the fact that there is only 1 Santa.

* The "bathroom bills" that several [[DeepSouth southern US states]] have been enacting, that require people to use restrooms and locker rooms that match their birth sex, are ostensibly done in the name of protecting women and children from sexual predators claiming to be transgender. The fact that trans people are more likely to be ''victims'' in public restrooms than assailants goes unmentioned, and the idea of someone pretending to be trans to prey on your daughter someplace you can't protect her has no basis in reality. Interestingly, these laws don't take trans ''men'' into account, who often have a smoother external transition than trans women and it would obviously cause a scene if [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/meredithtalusan/26-trans-guys-who-will-make-you-thirsty#.qyKArkzQv if one of these guys]] walked into the ladies room, even though such laws would require them to. It doesn't help that even the police have no idea how to enforce these laws, and people have taken to harassing cisgender women for ''not looking feminine enough''. That's right, ladies: having short hair means you're a man now.

* The main reason why WebVideo/{{PhantomStrider}} did not include ''WesternAnimation/WhereTheDeadGoToDie'' in his [[https://youtu.be/9J0vXvrdSc4 Top 10 Worst Animated Movies]] video, considering that he only watched the first ten minutes of the film. He said that he would never forgive himself if a child looked that film up because he mentioned it.

* The movie ''Film/TheCondemned'' actually has a character argue that the media should be censored so that nothing which would not be appropriate for children could be shown. No, ''really''. And the movie's on ''her'' side. (Of course, [[StrawmanHasAPoint taking into account]] [[SadistShow the kind of stuff that's being shown on TV]] within the movie's universe...)
