* ''Webcomic/MenageA3'': Zii has a habit of tossing people into sexual situations and otherwise violating personal boundaries willy-nilly. The audience is apparently supposed to be on her side, and she was never punished for it for a long time. (To be fair, the comic shows a disregard verging on contempt for the concept of {{karma}} for anyone.) This is in addition to a lot of fanservice and some stereotyping in the comic generally. For more detail, see [[badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Menage_a_3 these]] [[http://agoutirex.livejournal.com/142290.html reviews]]. However, things grew a little more nuanced as the plot continued, as one of Zii's conquests turned into a comedy StalkerWithACrush who was largely responsible for her first serious relationship for years crashing and burning.

** Similarly, it and its sister comic ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'' implies bisexuals are either "Half out of the closet" or inherent cheaters, both disgusting stereotypes.

* ''Film/SevenPounds'' concerns Tim Thomas, a man who had accidentally killed seven people in a car accident. At the film's climax, Tim commits suicide and donates his organs to seven people who need them, which is portrayed as a HeroicSacrifice and a redemptive act for him. Mathew Buck of ''WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown'' [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x35uayj took the film to task]] for this ending, believing it sends the message that there are situations where committing suicide is justifiable, and moreso the implication that there are people who have screwed up their lives so badly that suicide is the ''optimal'' course of action. (This is also ValuesDissonance, as certain cultures would actually ''agree'' with that message.)

* ''Film/AtomicBlonde'' picked up a significant LGBTFanbase before it was even out thanks to the promises of the main character being bisexual and her primary love interest being a woman. Many of them [[http://www.thewrap.com/atomic-blonde-hit-late-breaking-criticism-killing-lgbt-character/ were disappointed to discover]] that [[spoiler:the love interest character is [[BuryYourGays brutally murdered by the villain]] toward the end, in a case of StuffedIntoTheFridge without a hint of irony]].

* [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Many]] [[WebVideo/JonTron internet]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpLFAfaxmv8 reviews]] of ''WesternAnimation/{{Foodfight}}'' have pointed out that TheReveal that [[spoiler:Lady X is an old prune mascot]] implies that "ugliness = bad". And that's only one example of BeautyEqualsGoodness in a movie that consistently plays it straight.

* In the mid-nineties, Reebok came under fire for [[http://www.snopes.com/business/market/incubus.asp producing a shoe called the Incubus]] -- a shoe marketed to women, no less. Apparently, someone in marketing submitted it as a potential name [[RuleOfCool because it was a non-trademarked word that sounded cool]], and the company [[DidNotDoTheResearch didn't do the research]] that would have revealed that they were about to sell a women's athletic shoe named after male HornyDevils. The company quickly apologized and recalled the product when this came to their attention.
