* ''Series/OdiseaBurbujas'' featured a scene where Mimoso Raton (a baby mouse) walks into a room, and a woman jumps onto a chair because she is terrified of him. And this is shown as perfectly normal and expected. This show ran in Mexico during the first half of the 1980s. Imagine the backlash and accusations of sexism the producers would have received if the same scene had been aired in the USA during the same time period.

* In 1972, Merrill Heatter and Bob Quigley produced a short-lived game show called ''The Amateur's Guide to Love''. It had a ''Series/CandidCamera''-eqsue premise with a van secretly observing unsuspecting lovers using hidden cameras. If this show was tried today, people would be up in arms about being watched and exploited on national television. The idea of using a van to do so won't sit well due to it [[MistakenForPedophile having other implications these days]].

* The ''Series/{{Batman}}'' episode "Nora Clavicle and the Ladies Crime Club" comes off as quite anti-feminist when watching it today. The titular villain is a StrawFeminist [[DoesNotLikeMen in the extreme]], who replaces the cops of Gotham City with women, who are depicted as totally inept [[note]] They care more about their makeup, recipes, and shopping then actually solving crimes [[/note]] and her plan revolves around using EekAMouse played straight. Although both Batgirl & Nora herself as depicted as capable, the other females are not and the dialogue of several of the characters, Commissioner Gordon & Chief O'Hara especially, comes off as misogynistic; the show could get a pass due to it being [[{{Camp}} campy]] and therefore not meant to be taken seriously, but it's still a little cringe-worthy to watch.

* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' had an episode where Cindy is targeted by a bully because she talked with a lisp. The Bradys never thought to take the problem to the school, which is standard procedure today, and the boy's father thought it was normal for kids to pick on other kids. Sadly, some parents still do think that way, but it's highly likely that things in the episode would have been seen differently now, when bullying is taken far more seriously and more people are aware of the potential consequences. It's also worth noting that Peter could possibly have been suspended along with the bully for the fight, given many schools' no-tolerance policies about fighting these days.

** The Season 4 episode "Bobby's Hero," where at the beginning of the episode, Mike and Carol are called to the school after Bobby (off-screen) brought a toy gun to school and was playing outlaw Jesse James, annoying and harassing classmates by "holding them hostage." Indeed, as late as the 1970s and even into the 1980s, bringing a toy gun -- while a definite no-no -- got the culprit off with little more than a stern warning to never do it again. Today, Mike and Carol would be fighting a losing battle to keep Bobby in school, let alone get him enrolled in even any alternative school.

* ''{{QI}}'', a British panel show, had an episode discussing a man from Japan who survived both bombings - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnTaqBnNLUU a man who took a train from Hiroshima to Nagasaki just in time for the second blast]]. Most Brits wouldn't have thought twice about it. Interesting figures from even the grisliest chapters of history are routinely discussed, lampooned, and milked for laughs on the show, all in the name of being interesting. To us, it's actually quite cosy comedy, and the clip no more harmful than anything else they've broadcast. Some Japanese media networks, however, disagreed, and the very existence of such a conversation - not broadcast in Japan, incidentally - was reported as an abomination, as it broke a cultural taboo. To some of the people of Japan, the subject's off-limits to the whole universe. To the UK, it's just quite interesting. It should, however, be pointed out that there are plenty of people from Japan commenting on that video that they don't see what the fuss is about.

** The way [[{{transsexual}} transgender]] individuals are treated in ''Special Victims Unit'' is uncomfortable. They casually throw around slurs like "tranny" without it being portrayed in a negative manner and misgender characters. It's noticeable as episodes in TheNewTens, barely ten years after some of the aforementioned episodes, go out of their way to portay this sort of thing as negative, and the main characters don't do it anymore. In a 2015 episode about an assault on a transgender victim, the defendant's use of the term "tranny" was used as evidence of a hate crime.
