This frequently results in a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop reinforcing stereotypical behavior, and some people may find the notion of underlying biological imperatives enforcing such behavior deeply offensive. May result in BecomingTheMask or GoingNative depending upon surrounding circumstances. Often precedes the SecondLawOfGenderBending which may stem from this trope, and may result in a ShoppingMontage and/or MakeoverMontage as the new boy or girl (willingly or not) gets "geared up" for life in their new gender.

This frequently results in a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop reinforcing stereotypical behavior, and some people may find the notion of underlying biological imperatives enforcing such behavior deeply offensive. It is also a form of TransgenderFetishization, in which a transgender character is hypersexualized and exploited for the benefit of the audience. May result in BecomingTheMask or GoingNative depending upon surrounding circumstances. Often precedes the SecondLawOfGenderBending which may stem from this trope, and may result in a ShoppingMontage and/or MakeoverMontage as the new boy or girl (willingly or not) gets "geared up" for life in their new gender.

** Fully subverted by Phase, who receives a girl's figure and proceeds to fight tooth and nail against it (despite his guardians' insistence that he embrace the change). Phase still has male genitalia and goes out of his way to announce his still-a-male-ness to everyone he meets, even though events tend to conspire to force him to pretend to be a girl. Phase's mutation got him thrown out of his KnightTemplar family of [[NobleBigot Noble Bigots]] and [[HeteronormativeCrusader Heteronormative Crusaders]] so it's possible he doesn't reject the change so much as he just hates himself.

* PiersAnthony's works frequently include gender bending, usually accompanied by this trope. He tends to write natural laws into his settings which force certain behaviors and responses onto characters based on their physical sexes. Several of his books also combine this with ImAManICantHelpIt. A female will turn into a male and learn that males are such virile creatures possessed with such strong libido they must constantly struggle to contain those urges and not turn into rapists. Some specific examples:

* In the ''{{Paradise}}'' setting, humans are randomly, permanently changed into {{Funny Animal}}s (with some experiencing a gender-change at the same time). Some of these stories feature involuntarily feminized characters receiving a GirlinessUpgrade (because TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody) and throwing themselves into it all the way.

* ''Webcomic/TheGoodWitch'': Playing with the third law is just one of the ways Angel torments her victims. Examples include making sure all of her older brother's transformations include uber-girly clothes, turning one classmate into a cheerleader (complete with outfit) and possibly turning another into an [[WholesomeCrossdresser enthusiastic transvestite.]] However, the third law is also played straight with Angel herself, who, as a former male-to-female transgendered person, is absolutely thrilled to finally be able to buy the dress she always wanted. Since she can (and does) magically create any clothing she wants at will actually buying the dress appears to have been an act of affirmation on her part.

** A better example is Tedd; Grace actually has fewer dresses and skirts in her wardrobe than he does despite most of her first clothes being selected by OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Sarah.

* ''Webcomic/TheWotch'': Frequent enough that some bloggers have remarked on the UnfortunateImplications. ** Made explicit in the case of the four {{Jerk Jock}}s who got turned into cheerleaders (''[[Webcomic/{{Cheer}} The Wotch, Cheer!]]'') where it's flat-out stated that the four primarily acted like macho jerks to repress their fundamentally kind and gentle (i.e. "feminine") inner natures
