** Another episode has a species which lacks gender, where identifying ''as'' one gender or another is viewed as an illness to be cured--forcibly. The parallel to historical and (often continuing [[CureYourGays treatment]] of LGBT people was very obvious, though [[BrokenAesop somewhat undermined]] with the fact that all the "genderless" aliens were played by female actors, and the character which identifies as female is also played by a woman, desiring a heterosexual relationship with Riker. Still, they tried.

** It's not just romantic attachments, either; having any sort of strong emotional connection to ''anyone'' seems to be at least slightly frowned upon. Actual enforcement seems to have been rather intermittent however, which is probably for the best, and Luke quite sensibly ditches it completely when he recreates the Order, after seeing what it did to his father. [[note]] The policy seems to vary with the era; in Exar Kun's War (4000 years prior to the films), no one batted an eyelash at married Jedi and Jedi with families. By the KnightsOfTheOldRepublic era, the ban is in place. By the time of ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic,'' the policy has softened somewhat, but it's still greatly discouraged and the Jedi will be under extra scrutiny. After the Battle of Ruusan, the Order not only banned "attachments" of all kinds, but conscripted their initiates from ''infancy.'' Of course, there were splinter sects like the Green Jedi of Corellia and the Altisian Jedi who the main Order considered heretics that thought the whole "no attachment" .[[/note]]

* There was one ''Series/TinMan'' fanfic where painting one's nails (particularly the toenails) was something only "disreputable" ladies did in Oz. DG was a a little confused at the stares Cain gave her when she went around barefoot - painted nails were not a big deal in Kansas, after all.

** Even words such as 'shit' aren't censored in any media anywhere (the German equivalent of 'shitty' is even less offensive; for instance, it made ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'''s 'It Hits The Fan' episode less poignant than it could have been), except maybe (obviously) in shows targeted at kids below the age of ten.

It depends on where you look, however, and is not always consistent--Creator/AdultSwim will sometimes bleep the word, and sometimes they won't.

* There are many countries, most notably most of the ones in eastern Asia, where speaking ill of any political leader is blasphemous. Either you speak praise about him or her, or you just stay silent, as you are expected to have absolute loyalty to your country and prioritize their beliefs over your own. In more extreme cases, you pretend you like them. This can come across to westerners, who mock and insult their political leaders all the time, as MyCountryRightOrWrong (and, depending on how you look at it, might actually be that). At the same time, people from these countries who travel to the west are often horrified at how everyone seems to treat their leaders as trash.

* The {{imageboard}} [=4chan=], home to all manner of horrific {{NSFW}} material, considers the single most heinous sexual practice to be... ''[[spoiler:consensual sex in the missionary position]]''. Definitely {{Played for Laughs}}. That shit gets even more horrifying when [[spoiler:done for the purpose of reproduction.]] And it's [[MoralEventHorizon ten times worse]] if [[spoiler:they're happily married.]] The gag is most prominent on the /d/ ("alternative hentai") board where there are occasional [[spoiler:"happy sex"]] threads that play on the joke. Scenes of a couple [[spoiler:holding hands]] can make even the kinkiest of /a/nons blush profusely.

* One of the biggest sources of conflict in ''FanFic/TheMissionStaysTheSame''; Captain Gallardi is from the [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 Imperium of Man]], but his AbsoluteXenophobe outlook clashes heavily with the more optimistic and accepting ''Franchise/MassEffect'' universe. He does his best to function in the environment, but begins having a crisis of faith as he starts adjusting to the norms of the new universe.
