* Invoked on an episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Turk doesn't pick the only female in the group of candidates to be his assistant, which Elliot decides is sexist, so she gets Carla (Turk's wife) to [[LysistrataGambit deny him sex]] until he makes the girl his assistant instead.

** Subverted when it's revealed that Turk's decision had nothing to do with sexism, his choice was based on
the girl candidate's use of a three-colored pen to sign his assistant instead.name (stupid but not sexist). Once Turk's choice turns down the job (he never actually wanted the position, he just wanted to use his three-colored pen), Turk has no problem giving the position to the female intern. Turk also proves to Elliot that the female intern was purposefully invoking this trope to get Elliot to support her.

* ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh'', "The Great Race." The girls' swim team challenges the boys' soccer team [[http://www.agonybooth.com/agonizer/Degrassi/Junior_High/The_Great_Race.aspx to a swimming match]]. The boys secretly know the girls' team is better, but they think they can win -- because the girls' star swimmer is morbidly afraid of letting boys see her in a bathing suit and because they allow champion swimmer Snake to join the team, even though he's awful at soccer.

* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode "Eggman's Anti-Gravity Ray". During a game of soccer, Amy prepares to make a penalty kick, and starts boasting in third-person narration about proving that females can be just as good as males at sports, when [[DumbMuscle Knuckles]] makes [[DumbassHasAPoint a surprisingly-insightful]] [[DiscussedTrope comment on this trope]].
-->'''Knuckles:''' You know, Amy, any time someone calls attention to the breaking of gender roles, it ultimately undermines the concept of gender equality by implying that this is an exception and not the status quo. (''realizes everyone is starring at him in StunnedSilence'') [[DefensiveWhat What?]] Just because I'm a meathead doesn't mean I'm not a feminist.

* A brief clip from ''Series/ThirtyRock'' shows that Liz sued her high school for the right to play football, despite the fact that she was absolutely abysmal. It's implied she did it just so she could be a feminist crusader rather than because she wanted to play the game.

* Also, ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' parodied this, with [[BlackBestFriend Cookie]] trying out for cheerleading, and getting laughed off because he's a boy. He sues them, and gets a tryout, leading to this quote, summing up the tryout.

* This is the outcome in the film ''Film/LittleGiants''. Becky's dad was pissed that she wasn't chosen for the town's football team because she was girl and so he [[StartMyOwn started his own team]] and challenged the official team.
* In ''Film/ShaolinSoccer'', [[spoiler:Mui shows up at the end of the championship game in a BigDamnHeroes moment to counteract the Evil Team with [[ChekhovsSkill her Tai-chi skills]]]].
* ''Film/ShesTheMan'', the modern re-imagining of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'', centers around this trope. The girl's soccer team is cut, the girls are denied the chance to try out for the guys' team because "girls can't beat boys," so Amanda Bynes transfers schools in drag and HilarityEnsues.

* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', it's implied that Lady Sif had to pull one in order to be taken seriously as a warrior.

'''Sif''': ''I'' did.\\
'''Thor''': ...true, but I supported you!
