** In the arc where Calvin plays baseball at recess, Calvin considers dropping out and the coach tells him "Ok, quitter! Goodbye." These days, the coach would be catching a lot of heat and would likely lose his job for calling a six-year old a quitter.
** In the same arc, not one girl has the slightest interest in playing baseball. But ''all'' the boys except for Calvin do.

** In the arc where Calvin plays baseball at recess, Calvin considers dropping out Calvin, discouraged by the backlash over him catching a ball for the other team, announces that he's quitting and the coach tells him "Ok, quitter! Goodbye." These days, the coach would be catching a lot of heat and would likely lose his job for calling a six-year old a quitter.
** In the same arc, not one girl has the slightest interest in playing baseball. But baseball, but ''all'' the boys except for Calvin do. The combination of the boys making fun of his refusal to participate and having to share the playground with the girls forces Calvin to join in, even though he really doesn't want to.
** Calvin occasionally gets spanked by his parents, such as one strip in which he douses his mother in water after she puts on makeup and a nice dress, resulting in him holding his backside and muttering "What a grouch." Considering changing attitudes toward child abuse, such strips would be less likely to be published today.

* [[EverybodyHatesHades Hades]] is often viewed by modern myth buffs as being TheWoobie, despite being the default GodOfEvil in [[Disney/{{Hercules}} modern pop culture adaptations of]] Myth/ClassicalMythology because [[HijackedByJesus Medieval Christianity]], with its practice of demonizing pagan religions, decided to associate him with Hell. The funny thing is the Ancient Greeks themselves didn't like Hades that much - they'd [[HeWhoMustNotBeNamed attempt to not speak his name]] and look away when making sacrifices in his name. Meanwhile, guys that are commonly considered [[JerkAss assholes]] today, like [[JerkassGods Zeus, Poseidon and Hera]], were viewed with great respect by the ancient Greeks. About the only Greek god modern audiences and the Ancient Greeks had the same opinion (read: [[TheScrappy hatred]]) of is [[WarGod Ares]], and ''he'' was given the DracoInLeatherPants treatment by the Romans!

** Speaking of the Titans, it's also this way between Greek/Roman views of Kronos/Saturn. The Greeks believed, while he did have some marginal affiliation with the harvest, that Kronos was was a "cruel and tempestuous force of chaos and disorder,"[[note]]That's literally what they say on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronus#Roman_mythology_and_later_culture The Other Wiki]][[/note]] which is justified in that he castrated his father and [[ImAHumanitarian ate five of his children,]] just to consolidate his power. The Greeks believed that, when Kronos was overthrown by the Olympians, it followed by was the greatest era of peace. When the Romans came and [[CrossOver merged]] the Classical Greek stories with their own pantheon, [[DracoInLeatherPants they apparently ignored the "entirely evil" part of Kronos' story,]] and paired him with Saturn, their god of the harvest. They also gave him his own festival, Saturnalia, and built a giant freaking temple for him.

* In "What the Rose Did to the Cypress", an Iranian tale, Prince Almās-ruh-baksh marries four different women in close succession with nobody batting an eye, including the women themselves. One of them, who happens to be directly responsible for the execution of dozens of men, argues that it was their destiny to die in that manner, therefore she hasn't really done anything morally objectionable.

** Japanese non-car people sees cars simply as a tool of transportation rather than a status symbol. This is different from overseas people who sees the other way around. They only have (or almostly no) basic knowledge about cars, like many non-car people overseas. And this is why they only drive small kei cars.
** Some Asian (particularly Chinese) people sees big cars as a status symbol, and overlooked small cars as (in their opinion) a symbol of blasphemy. They [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness overlooked the usefulness of small cars]] due to the classic BiggerIsBetter mentality.
** People outside Japan and Europe see station wagons as [[BoringButPractical "uncool" plain people movers]], while people in Europe and Japan see pickup trucks as [[AWESOMEButImpractical "monster trucks"]] which are too brash for them.
*** Japanese people exaggerates even more, thinking bonnet-type pickup trucks as "brash, insane and hardcore" trucks that are too much for their lifestyles. This is one of the reasons [[DeaderThanDisco Japan is the only country that don't have pickups on sale]].

** Similarly, Camp Coffee's iconic label, showing an officer of the British Raj being served coffee by his faithful Indian servant, long outlasted the end of British rule in India and again its withdrawal caused outraged protest from traditionalists, who considered Asian-British people were complaining about nothing.

** British jam and preserves maker Robertsons took a long time to retire its advertising mascot - a childrens' doll in Minstrel blackface known as a "golliwog". [[note]] Possibly the origin of the N-word "wog" used as a pejorative with a meaning almost as strong as the ''other'' N-word.[[/note]] It took until the late 1990's and floods of protests from traditionalists who didn't see the problem and who considered black British people were being over-sensitive.

** ''Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow'''s [[TelevisionTieInMagazines spin-off magazine]], the ''O Magazine'', is notorious for the amount of advertising space sold to big pharma companies advertising anti-depressants, tranqs, and Mother's Little Helpers. It has been noted by readers outside the USA that this [[SarcasmMode sits really well]] with the philosophy of strong, empowered, self-reliant women with high self-esteem who can do anything they like if they set their minds to it.
