** As of Season 5 there have been issues with how the show [[http://moviepilot.com/posts/2946733 treats religion and religious people]]. Several religions and religious institutions in the show are hit with AdaptationalVillainy, especially [[CrystalDragonJesus the Faith of the Seven]], three religious characters from the books are retconned into non-religious people and any morally good religious characters are either AdaptedOut or killed off (as was the case with show only Septon Ray). It's gotten to the point where [[WriterOnBoard the showrunners have been accused of prejudice against religion]] and [[AuthorTract are spreading it through the show]].

* [[http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/me-before-you-movie-controversy-1.3607977 Disability advocates are criticizing]] the movie adaptation of JoJo Moyes' ''Film/MeBeforeYou'' because of its ending suggesting that [[spoiler: quadriplegic's lives are not worth living and that committing assisted suicide is, for them, a HeroicSacrifice that can only benefit their abled loved ones]]. It doesn't help that the story the movie and book follow is the able-bodied female lead's and not the quadriplegic character's, who ends up as an underdevelopped DisabledLoveInterest, or that at the end [[spoiler: the female lead, Lou, actually is rewarded by [[PunnyName Will]] with a congruous inheritance that makes her able to finally follow her dreams, making Will nothing more than a plot point LostLenore]].

* ''WesternAnimation/MarsNeedsMoms'', as [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/current-movie-reviews/battle-los-angeles.php?page=2 this Something Awful review points out]], risks coming across as one of the more alarmist tomes on parenting from the Fifties. The Martian women, who assume the roles of societal leaders, need to abduct human mothers to serve as templates for maternal care - because a powerful working woman apparently can't be a loving mother at the same time. The Martian men thus have no role in their society, and become somewhere between hippies and gay stereotypes. And the Martian girl explicitly says at the end that the only way for a child to truly feel loved is if they're raised by two parents, which must have been ''interesting'' for all the single parents in the audience to explain to their kids afterwards.
