*** The bully of the episode is also allowed to [[KarmaHoudini get away with her actions]] because it turns out that [[FreudianExcuse she was bullied herself back in Manhattan]]. This seems to imply that it's completely okay to be a bully if you've suffered bullying in the past.

** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E4OneBadApple One Bad Apple]]" has many a FamilyFriendlyAesop about bullying. Among these are the wishful thinking that telling an adult will automatically solve the problem and that standing up to a bully will also make you a bully as well. Said morals are torn apart in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXDAzT355Tc review]] by [[WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter someone]] who actually was a victim of bullying.

* In the Mexican SoapOpera ''Series/LaRosaDeGuadalupe'', as stated in [[http://oceanpictures61.deviantart.com/journal/LO-VOLVIERON-A-HACER-391076744 this blog]] there are quite a few misconceptions about AspergerSyndrome, making it seem like something that makes people violent, and a FateWorseThanDeath. Not only that, but apparently, Aspergers can now be cured, you don't even need a doctor or anything!

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Dean and Sam investigate a death at a Catholic church. As they leave, Dean stops to watch a mother and son lighting candles, reminded of the relationship he'll never have. It's a bittersweet moment... Except Dean is dressed as a priest and staring a little too long at a little boy. So...

* A large number of [[http://www.newsarama.com/8623-psychiatrists-call-out-dc-on-depictions-of-mentally-ill.html villains in comics]] [[https://depts.washington.edu/mhreport/facts_violence.php or otherwise]] suffer from mental illness, despite the fact that, in reality, the mentally ill [[http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1389236/ are only connected to]] [[http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/01/us/focus-on-mental-health-laws-to-curb-violence-is-unfair-some-say.html 4% of violent crimes, and are 11x as likely to be subjected to them]]. That's right; contrary to what media tells you, sane people are enormously more dangerous to insane people than the reverse.
* The star of the infamous ''[[ComicBook/TeenTitans New Teen Titans]]'' saga, ''ComicBook/TheJudasContract'', Terra, is subjected to this trope. She was a super-powered 16 year-old hired by the mercenary Slade Wilson, a.k.a. ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} the Terminator, to infiltrate, spy on, and destroy the Titans (she was actually 15 when she started doing this). During her time with the Titans, it's revealed she's having a sexual affair with Slade, and the story's creators [[WordOfGod have confirmed]] that the purpose of this was to shock the readers at [[SlutShaming what a slut]] ''[[SlutShaming she]]'' [[SlutShaming is]], never mind that nothing indicates she's ever slept with anybody else, she actually seems to think Slade loves her, and Slade might be committing statutory rape. When the time comes to betray the Titans, they try to reason with her and fail, and she dies while trying to kill them, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard destroyed by her own powers]]. The story becomes quite {{Anvilicious}} at how evil she is. She's explicitly called evil, the {{Narrator}} informs us that she's both completely insane and completely responsible for her actions (a contradiction in terms), even Slade later says [[EvenEvilHasStandards her evil scared even him.]] Her death is essentially a teen suicide (in a series that was about, and originally intended for, teens) [[UsefulNotes/VictimBlaming where everything is being blamed on the teen]]. And as for Slade, her boss and lover, [[DoubleStandard the man]] who's decades older than her, a multiple murderer, who created the EvilPlan she was following, whose own stated intentions with that plan was to murder all the Titans, he is (comparatively speaking) EasilyForgiven by the Titans afterwards, and is treated by Creator/DCComics as an AntiHero for the next several years. He's even treated as a ''father figure'' by several of the Titans he was trying to kill! This storyline exonerated the adult in this murderous partnership while trying to blame everything on the 16 year-old girl. [[http://historiesofthingstocome.blogspot.com/search/label/Terra The blogger tamaranorbust has a thorough, multi-part study on Terra,]] covering her appearances, her background, how she's referred to, the characters she affected, the histories of [[LegacyCharacter her two later namesakes]], and the very unpleasant implications of her story.

--> But the film needs Susan to be a bit useless along the way, or it’s danger of not being funny. And herein lies a slight problem. It’s hard to upend the sexism of the spy genre while also laughing at the unlikeliness of a female spy – especially one played by the magnificently shambolic [=McCarthy=] – filling Bond’s boots. The funnier the film gets, in a way, the more it shrugs and admits this is fundamentally a boy’s-own business.
