->'''Mr. Garrison:''' Stanley, gay people... well, gay people are evil. Evil right down to their cold black hearts, which pump not blood like yours and [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday mine]], but rather [[MadeOfEvil a thick vomitous oil that oozes through their rotten veins and clots in their pea-sized brains, which becomes the cause of their Naziesque patterns of violent behaviour.]] Do you understand?\\
'''Stan:''' ...I guess.\\
'''Garrison:''' Good. I'm glad we could have this little talk, Stanley. Now you go outside and practice football like a good little heterosexual.

This is a character who believes that non- actively heteronormative individuals are bad or 'unnatural' and thus must be unsatisfied, incomplete, or immoral. This can certainly be TruthInTelevision, as homophobia and queerphobia are still apparent in the world, and are true law in some places. Obviously, queer people themselves can be as morally and satisfactorily ranging as heteronormative people.

The depiction of the character can go from being misunderstanding and delivering unwelcome advice all the way up to the extremes of bigotry or even [[HomophobicHateCrime physical violence]] in their efforts to 'help' or [[CureYourGays convert]] people into engaging in non-heterosexual activities. They can be diverse: anything from specialized MoralGuardians or {{Principles Zealot}}s to a bloodthirsty mob equipped with {{torches and pitchforks}}. Sometimes it involves characters making efforts to recruit others to their cause.

A common tool they might use for their cause is [[CondescendingCompassion a kind of supposed pity]], trying to impose [[InternalizedCategorism a negative self-image]] on the non-normative characters or trying to explain it as caused by a meaningless childhood 'sin' like being given the 'wrong' toys. Alternatively, the argued (or even actual) cause of a character's queerness may be explained as a [[RapeAndSwitch dramatic sexual experience such as rape]], often in conjunction with the idea of them therefore being broken and needing to be 'fixed', possibly in the same manner.

When the gay character responds to insults on his sexuality by talking about his love of his partner, it usually is part of AnAesop where the Heteronormative Crusader is portrayed as the NobleBigot who then learns to be more sensitive and gains an understanding of the homosexual character (the same can also happen for bisexual or celibate characters, for example the priest talking about the role of faith in his life). After a person responds to criticism by talking about their love of their significant other it can become a KickTheDog situation if the Heteronormative Crusader continues with insults.

The trope can be Played With, for example in situations when a gay character is created only to be a one-dimensional walking Aesop about the importance of tolerance and diversity. It can be subverted when the character thought to be a Heteronormative Crusader's actions are BaitAndSwitch, for example the parent who disapproves strongly of their child's gay relationship but instead because they're concerned about the partner's criminal record, not gender.

In [[SocietyMarchesOn modern fiction]], these characters are more often being solely played for laughs or as a way of highlighting [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain how unsympathetic the antagonist is]]. Still, there may be a story where the Heteronormative Crusader might be the hero if [[SissyVillain the]] ''[[SissyVillain gays]]'' [[DepravedHomosexual are the villains]] universally, which walks right into UnfortunateImplications territory, likely deliberately.



[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* Early on in ''Manga/BokuraNoHentai'', Ryousuke is grossed out by Marika (a transgender girl) and Osamu (a gay boy) dressing up in female clothing. ''He'' dresses as a girl too, but only does so [[MySiblingWillLiveThroughMe to please his mother]]. He threatens to beat up Marika at one point and actually does hit Osamu. Eventually, Ryousuke learns to be more tolerant of the two.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''[[Comicbook/TheLegendOfKorraTurfWars Turf Wars]]'' reveals that [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Fire Lord Sozin]] outlawed same-sex relations. It's a bit of an odd choice, since part of his characterization was being a WellIntentionedExtremist, but it does ring true to life when having Japan's history into consideration.
* In the Creator/GrantMorrison run of ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'', an entire secret branch of the Pentagon existed as Heteronormative Crusaders wielding bizarre and Dadaesque technology, known as The Men From N.O.W.H.E.R.E. This naturally made them StrawHypocrite villains as well. Mind you, they prefer to stay in the shadows until a deranged associate creates his own much more agressive offshoot, on his quest to destroy Danny The Street.
* In ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'', one side character starts out as a ArmoredClosetGay Nazi who beat an Indian man almost to death for flirting with him. [[spoiler:The man gets disabled for life, but they end up as lovers anyway -- once the first guy realized that ThoseWackyNazis wasn't such a good crowd to hang out with after all.]]
* Discussed in ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'', with the main characters taking a very negative stand on this kind of behavior and certain villains implying that they do some normative crusading along with their racist ditto.
** As for the attitudes of our hero: At one point, Jesse Custer visits a party hosted by a guy specializing in [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny decadence]]. This host gets to be surprised twice. First when the preacher approves of the kinky stuff between consenting adults, then when the same preacher [[PaedoHunt beats the crap out of him for molesting children.]]
* PlayedForLaughs in ''SmallFavors'': Only naughty people are into BDSM, and they deserve to be [[KinkySpanking severely punished]] for it!
* ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'':
** Several tracts are about homosexuals being possessed by demons or generically evil. Sometimes fetish clothes and BDSM tools are used to show just how "evil" the gays are. Heterosexual BDSM doesn't seem to exist in the world of Chick.
** He really went overboard with this trope in the [[AuthorTract tract]] called [[http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1070/1070_01.asp Uninvited]]: The tract features a nurse who harasses dying AIDS-patients for their "crime" of being gay. Of course, [[SoulsavingCrusader her actions are fully justified within the verse of the tract]], since this is an {{anvilicious}}ly bigoted AuthorTract. The real kick? It turns out that all the homosexuals became homosexual because they were sexually molested as children. More to the point, when a child gets sexually molested, she automatically becomes unclean, possessed by a demon of defilement. The trope DefiledForever is played straight for everyone who isn't both TheFundamentalist ''and'' a Christian. Averted for all characters who are (or become) HolierThanThou.
* ''ComicBook/BitchyBitch'': One of the coworkers is a evangelical homophobe -- whose prejudice only serves to infuriate Midge further. They are ''everywhere'' (but only some of them are real -- others are {{Windmill}}s in Butchy's own mind).
* ''ComicBook/CityOfDreams'': The white prince, trying a little bit too hard at the KnightInShiningArmor routine and coming up as nothing more than a selfish, conceited, jealous, self-righteous, patriarchal... well, you get the idea.
* Creator/DCComics have been dropping clues about this over the last five years or so, with the accompanying crusaders. Brad Meltzer has hinted more than once that there's a homosexual underground within the DCU villain community, and that being outed would result in being killed by some of the more dangerous racist villains. [[JokerImmunity Unless you're so incredibly scary that even manly macho men are terrified of you, that is.]]
* ''ComicBook/LifeWithArchieTheMarriedLife'': [[spoiler:Wendell]], the [[spoiler:MysteriousStranger]] taken in as a [[spoiler:busboy for the Chocklit Shoppe]] by Jughead, is later revealed in Issue #36 to be a homophobic gunman who shot [[spoiler:Kevin Keller's husband Clay Walker during one of his robberies]] in Issue #22 and went on a rampage by shooting down gay employees in the Southport Mall in Issue #30, and now seeks to end Kevin's life when his attempt to stop Kevin from becoming a senator on gun control failed. When [[spoiler:Wendell]] discovers that his cover is being blown, he hides behind the crowd and pulls out a gun to shoot Kevin. [[spoiler:However, Archie jumps into the fray to stop Wendell and ends up TakingTheBullet for Kevin, leading to Wendell's arrest.]]
* ''ComicBook/ThePride'', being a comic book series about a team where every member is gay, naturally has a bunch of these as its villains, with the BigBad basically being an even-more villainous version of [[http://wwww.wikipedia.org/Fred_Phelps Fred Phelps]].
* Dick Hafer immortalized himself as even loonier than Jack Chick with his homophobic propaganda comic ''Homosexuality: Legitimate, Alternate Deathstyle!'' As one might gather from the title, this character archetype is portrayed as unambiguously heroic. Unlike Chick and others, Hafer did not even claim to "hate the sin but love the sinner", as it's pretty clear he would have hated LGBT people regardless of what his religion said about it.

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/MaryWorth'' is rather infamous for this -- anyone young who isn't married to someone of the opposite gender is quickly paired up by Mary.

[[folder:Fan Work]]
* The ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' fanfic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/2214054/chapters/4853466 ''The M-Word'']] subverts this trope: Stefan is a gay hating jerk, but when he says something wrong in front of the press, this threatens his career, and his career is more important to him than anything else ... so he arranges for his daughter Aurora to get married to a woman (Maleficent), so that he can turn up at the wedding and smile into the cameras, and be immune against all accusations of homophobia.
* In the Manga/LuckyStar fanfic ''FanFic/LuckyStarAfterStory'', Yutaka and Minami, while on their honeymoon, are attacked by a homophobic man who sees them kissing. Fortunately for them, several bystanders manage to wrestle the attacker off of the thoroughly-scared couple. The attacker gets his comeuppance with a long prison sentence.
* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' fanfics ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2147427/1/Farewell-to-Life-the-Way-We-Knew-It Farewell To Life The Way We Knew It]]'' and its sequel ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2300042/1/Survival-of-the-Misfits Survival of the Misfits]]'' takes place in a dystopian 1990s setting where an American Mortality office gets people arrested for anything they deem immoral. They have a blood test that can tell if someone is heterosexual or not. Stormer and later [[spoiler:Clash]] end up getting outdated as lesbian and arrested.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3470108/1/Gay-Pride Gay Pride]],'' Zim turns on the TV and sees a program featuring a fundamentalist Christian preacher who declares that homosexuality will destroy the world. Zim, being an alien invader who ''wants'' to destroy the world, immediately decides that he needs to become homosexual. HilarityEnsues.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/ShowMeLove'': Viktoria chose to assume this role, harassing her former friend Agnes for being homosexual. It's all an openly calculated plot designed to use homophobia as a means to gain popularity... [[spoiler:And it backfires completely.]]
* ''Film/TheSMJudge'' is all about this trope. The main character isn't even a sadomasochist himself, it's his wife who is a masochist. But his political enemies find out, and uses it as a excuse to persecute him -- claiming that he has "abused" her.
* ''Film/PreachingToThePerverted'' plays this trope [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]]. The main character is originally working for a bigot, who sends him out to infiltrate a BDSM club. It turns out that the bigot is a sadist himself, and [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny the main reason he hates the club]] is that they are having all the fun that he has denied himself all his life.
* The main character in ''Film/BoysDontCry'' is a young {{transgender}} man[[note]]There's some debate as to whether Brandon Teena suffered from Gender Identity Disorder, which can only be positively diagnosed by extensive psychiatric evaluation, or was a lesbian who chose to pass for a young man.[[/note]] who hangs out with some redneck homophobes who accept him as one of the guys. He even starts dating the sister of one of these new friends. Of course, when they "discovered" that he was assigned female, they consider this relationship to be lesbian. Homophobic hate crimes ensue, [[spoiler:ending in his murder.]]
* Played for symbolism in ''Film/FemalePerversions'': Eve, a bisexual sadomasochist, get attacked (twice!) by a very judgmental man. However, this man comes out of nowhere -- in all likelihood he is not to be taken as a literal person, but rather as a manifestation of her anxiety.
* The infamous ''Perversion For Profit'' from 1965 (see [[Quotes/HeteronormativeCrusader the quotes page]]) isn't truly about homosexuality or sadomasochism as much as it's a general plea for the virtue of censorship and the evils of free speech. However, they [[ValuesDissonance assume that the audience has a unhesitating hatred for homosexuals and sadomasochists]], and thus [[AcceptableTargets mention these minorities several times in order to make the attack on freedom of speech appear more legitimate]]. [[TakeThat A parody re-edit of the film]] was later made, called "[[http://www.archive.org/details/come_join_the_fun2004 Come Join the Fun]]".
* Mary Brown, the director of the reparative therapy camp "True Directions" in ''Film/ButImACheerleader''.
* Janet's father in ''Film/ShockTreatment''. He expresses his hatred of CampGay and CampStraight men [[{{Irony}} in a musical number]].
* Anita Bryant plays this role through archival footage in ''Film/{{Milk}}''.
* Inverted in ''Film/FemaleTrouble'', where a character's aunt tries to coerce him into being gay, and describes heterosexuality as "sick" and "boring".
* A relatively peaceful example in the film ''Film/{{Saved}}''. When it comes out that Mary's boyfriend is gay, he gets shipped off to a camp to teach him to be straight, and Mary's classmates help by attempting to "pray the gay away." Given that this movie is a parody of hardcore Christian society, their attitudes aren't very surprising.
* [=McKenzie=] of ''Film/{{GBF}}'' is one. She ditches 'Shley and Topher for "fraternizing with [a] Sodomite" (befriending the openly gay Tanner) and takes extreme measures to enforce PromIsForStraightKids.

* Defied in ''Literature/TheGospelOfTheFlyingSpaghettiMonster'', the chapter on pirates and wenches. The main text of the chapter takes for granted that Pirates (the chosen people!) are male and heterosexual. However, little footnotes exclaim that women can be pirates too and that same-sex relationships are entirely okay in His eyes.
* Parodied in ''Literature/TheIlluminatusTrilogy'': One of the [[EpilepticTrees theories]] on why Atlantis was destroyed is that [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the Illuminati]] hated the civilization's FreeLoveFuture enough to nuke it back to the Stone Age. Turns out that this story was false from start to finish later on in the book, however. Atlantis wasn't a paradise, and the Illuminati at the time wasn't pure evil -- [[spoiler:in fact it and the Discordianism were essentially the same for a quite long time.]] There are plenty of conservative religious organizations with amusingly acronymic names in the book, however, mainly playing the role of a ButtMonkey, or the underlying reason for the protagonists' embrace of the counterculture in their backstories.
* ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries'' use public acceptance of fetishism, sadomasochism, and homosexuality as a example of why society is decadent and has to be destroyed.
* ''[[http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Always-Wanted-Know-About/product-reviews/0312976569/ref=cm_cr_dp_hist_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&filterBy=addOneStar Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex: But Were Afraid to Ask]].
* Bob Altemeyer showed that certain personality types tend toward this in his non-fiction study "[[http://home.cc.umanitoba.ca/~altemey/ The Authoritarians]]", noting that some big characteristics of an authoritarian follower are conventionalism and aggression in the name of and submission to established authorities. They have [[IJustWantToBeNormal a need to be seen as normal]] and want to surround themselves with people who reinforce their beliefs. Hence, they tend to exert a lot of pressure to "normalize" others and punish deviancy.
* [[http://www.amazon.de/Gottes-Bodenpersonal-Eine-unwahrscheinliche-Liebesgeschichte-ebook/dp/B00S189Q1C This]] German book subverts the trope, by introducing a Christian character who rallies against the evils of prostitution, and gets on the nerves of the hooker who is offering her services nearby. When said hooker is attacked by a customer, because [[GayPanic she is a pre-operation transsexual]], the Christian intervenes and gets himself beaten up in the process. The hooker (lying on the ground at that point) is worried that she'll get the gay panic, too, but no, when he sees that he hooker's skirt is damaged and ... things show, he just covers the hooker with his jacket. Turns out he's not even a "love the sinner, hate the sin" kind of person, but thinks homosexuality is perfectly okay. He just doesn't like prostitution because money already rules the world in too many ways.
* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has a whole arc dedicated to defeating the homosexual agenda in Maine, which receives government support only because Governor Snidely Hokem (yes, that's his name) is being blackmailed after being taken in by crossdressers and recorded. Protagonist John Rumford claims that nobody minds what people get up to in the privacy of their home, but when people parade their sins in public and demand acceptance, that's too much to bear.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Terry Milkovich from ''Series/{{Shameless}} (US)'' walks in on his son Mickey with Ian, to which he responds by kicking the shit out of both (particularly Mickey) claiming that no son of his would be a fag. Terry forces Mickey to have sex with Svetlana (a Russian prostitute) while he and Ian watch, and a few episodes later, he forces Mickey to [[spoiler:marry Svetlana.]] After Mickey [[spoiler:comes out as gay at the Alibi,]] Terry downright tries to [[OffingTheOffspring murder]] his son… he's taken down in time, though, and sent to prison. [[RunningGag Again]].
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' often plays with this trope, with detectives reminding themselves and each other that bruises aren't necessarily caused by abuse, they could also be caused by BDSM. In some episodes, the trope is played completely straight:
** In one episode, a homosexual suspect gets his career destroyed because he was surrounded by heteronormative people who started crusading against him after Olivia accidentally outed him.
** In one episode, a shoe fetishist kills a woman for her boots. Dr Huang insists that fetishism is a harmless sexual variation, and a very tragic story is gradually revealed. [[spoiler:It turns out that the murderer's mother hated her son for being sexually "abnormal." She tried to "cure" his fetishism by beating him in the head with frying pans and other hard objects, and eventually this abuse caused him permanent brain damage that made him unstable enough to kill the woman by mistake.]]
** Both played straight and inverted in an episode where Kathy Griffin plays a militant lesbian activist. She's placed under police protection when she seems to be the next target in a string of crimes targeting lesbians. Played straight because [[spoiler:the criminal turns out to be a guy who just really hates lesbians]] and inverted because [[spoiler:the first man the police catch trying to sneak into her home turns out to be her male lover -- and she's afraid to exonerate him because of how her lesbian supporters might react if they think she's heterosexual (for the record, she comes out as bisexual at the end of the episode).]]
** Probably one of the better examples of playing with this trope was the episode "Doubt", where a woman accuses a former lover (also her college professor) of raping her, while he alleges it was consensual and she simply likes it rough (thus explaining the bruises). Cue numerous instances of "He said, she said" leads, and the episode ends [[spoiler:with the credits rolling before the verdict given, asking instead for the audience to decide which was the case. For the record -- they decided not to convict the man]].
* Subverted in the ''Series/LawAndOrder'' episode [[Recap/LawAndOrderS10E13Panic Panic]]: a man claims he shot his wife’s lesbian lover because he was this; however, it turns out their teenage daughter was actually the murderer and did not like the fact another person was sleeping with her mommy. Once this revelation was made, the man chose to plead guilty rather than let his daughter go to prison, much to [=McCoy's=] chagrin.
* Bachmann family [[{{Expy}} Expies]] Marsha and Marshall Langman in ''Series/ParksAndRecreation''.
* ''Series/TheLWord'': Several, naturally, including a prospective roommate who tries to [[CureYourGays "help"]] Jenny and Shane, a major antagonist in season one who believes God [[spoiler: caused Tina to miscarry because the child would be born to a lesbian couple]], and a man who admitted he wouldn't want a sissy gay for a son under the guise of being honest.
-->'''Bette:''' How nice. An honest homophobe.
* Parodied in ''Series/TrueBlood'': The intro features the infamous Westboro Baptist Church slogan "God hates fags," modified to "God hates fangs."
* Worf of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' and ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' can occasionally stumble into this, but generally only in [[OutOfCharacterMoment out of character]] episodes such as "The Outcast" and "Let He Who Is Without Sin...", wherein he is used as the resident [[StrawmanPolitical conservative strawman]]. Consider that normal Klingon sex is pretty kinky and violent by human standards. Or from Worf's perspective, human sex is pretty gentle.
* Parodied UpToEleven in one of the most popular episodes of the Swedish comedy show ''Series/{{Grotesco}}'', which has a Protestant preacher blaming "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmlhUn8TvT0&feature=related bögarnas fel]]" [[note]]"the gay's fault"[[/note]] for everything bad, including earthquakes, going beyond Westboro Baptist Church style by even blaming the war in Afghanistan and the dictatorship in Iran on the gay men. He is quickly joined by a Muslim, a Jew, and a Catholic nun, who all agree that "crazy fundamentalism" and all conflicts throughout history (including all religious wars -- ''especially'' all religious wars) are indeed the gay men's fault.
* While the ''Series/InsideScoop'' episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GEI7HKE_D4 Ban Left Marriage]] in itself is pure WindmillCrusader, it's also a parody of Heteronormative Crusader.
* In the ''Series/CriminalMinds episode "In Heat", [[spoiler:the [=UnSub=] was a gay man motivated by the abuse his Heteronormative Crusader father subjected him to. [[InternalizedCategorism He became convinced that he was "dirty"]], and began killing men and stealing their identities to escape his own.]]
* The ''character'' Creator/StephenColbert strays into this not infrequently.
-->"I love gay people as much as the next guy, unless the next guy is gay, in which case I back away slowly..."
** Character!Stephen runs into BoomerangBigot with this one on occasion, where he'll [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial imply through denial]] that he has [[GayConservative repressed homosexual urges.]] [[HoYay It slips out on occasion.]]
* On ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'', Becky quits the SchoolPlay because the director, Eli, turns ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' into ''[[GayAesop Romeo and Jules]]''. When he tells her about the change, she says that she is surprised that the principal endorses "alternate lifestyles". Later on, she meets Dave, who plays Romeo, and offers him religious counseling because he'll have to play a gay character. The hockey team also appears to be homophobic, though they are okay with [[GirlOnGirlIsHot lesbians.]] Becky started defying this trope as part of some CharacterDevelopment in regards to her beliefs. She started dating Adam, a female-to-male transgender boy, then helps Imogen, a pansexual, get with lesbian Jack. There was also a brief moment she thought she liked girls. The rest of her family, though, is not so keen on joining her on that journey.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'':
** In "The Bruces" sketch the Australian philosophers have a set of rules, where the most recurring one is always: "No poofters!" [[note]] Australian deragatory term for gays [[/note]]
** Biggles ''shoots a man'' for being gay. Ironically, he is played by [[StraightGay Graham Chapman]].
* A few of them show up at various points over the course of ''Series/TheWestWing".
* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' has two: Pennsatucky and Sam Healy. Pennsatucky is a fundamentalist Christian who hates the gays on religious grounds. Healy has a serious problem with lesbians, though it's unclear why. Piper thinks it's because he's jealous that he could never get a woman. Considering he married a {{mail order bride}}, it's a possibility.
* Mac in ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' is very outspoken against homosexuality and gay marriage, despite it being [[TransparentCloset increasingly apparent to everyone]] that he's ArmouredClosetGay.
* ''Series/QueerAsFolk'' has Craig Taylor, Justin's dad, whose reaction to his son coming out includes [[AbusiveParents hitting him]] and trying to run over his boyfriend. He eventually has Justin arrested for protesting his homophobic affiliations.
* On ''Series/SlingsAndArrows'', Anna has trouble finding a minister for [[CampGay Oliver's]] funeral. She eventually comes up with one at the last minute, but he ends up giving a fire-and-brimstone sermon about how the theater is an abomination because it turns everyone gay. She has to pull the fire alarm to cut him off.
* On ''Series/{{Empire}}'', Lucious falls into this trope regarding his gay son Jamal. Lucious mistreats him from the beginning, even putting him in a trashcan when he acted effeminately as a child. He begins to grudgingly accept Jamal's sexuality in season 2, as long as he's not directly confronted with it. [[spoiler: However, when he walks in on Jamal alone with a closeted record producer, Lucious loses his cool and tells Jamal that he is a disappointment and he'll be celebrating when Jamal finally dies of AIDS.]]
* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': The regime is run by these, with homosexuality punishable by death and called "gender treachery". Only fertile lesbians are spared, out of necessity, [[spoiler:and being caught carrying on a lesbian affair is punished by a clitoridectomy]].
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'': "George" has Hawkeye and Trapper attempting to thwart Frank, who wants a homosexual soldier dishonorably discharged.

* While Music/{{Eminem}} was well known for his homophobia during the height of his career, it is uncertain how much of it was his [[EnemyWithin Slim Shady]] alter ego. Whatever the case, makes amends for this in ''The Marshall Mathers LP 2'', wherein he admits he's a hypocrite and a bully, and that he needs to be accountable for the harm he's done.
-->'''Slim''' ''{to Marshall}'': [[HeWhoFightsMonsters I'm the bullies you hate]]
-->[[HeWhoFightsMonsters That you became]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'': The goddess Travia is, by some, portrayed as this. However, the sources leave enough room to interpret her as just in favour of monogamy. She's the goddess of home, hearth and family, but some tribes just consider her the goddess of family loyalty and hearth, so one can easily interpret her as giving her blessings to a homosexual marriage with adopted children. As long as they're faithful, it's within her ideals. (The setting leaves some room for interpretation, anyway, as some gods accept completely different forms of worship. Boron, god of death, gives his blessing to both the silent, earnest and humble followers in the north, and the drug-addled, decadent folks who sacrifice humans to him in the south.)
* ''TabletopGame/BlueRose'': Similarly, Leonoth is the god of home, hearth and family and blesses heterosexual unions. The [[TheFundamentalist Jarzoni]], who worship Leonoth above all other gods, have this trope as one of their more disagreeable habits. However, the [[MarySueTopia Aldins]] worship Leonoth alongside his brother and sister gods, including one that specifically blesses ''homosexual'' unions, and see the two as representing two equally valid lifestyles.
* ''TabletopGame/ScarredLands'': The LawfulNeutral god Hedrara and LawfulEvil god Chardun are both merciless bastards with harsh and arbitrary laws condemning love, sexuality, and, well positive emotions in general. Hedrara is the one most prone to discriminate against homosexuals and promiscuous people. The laws of Hedrara's holy city Hedrad have the death penalty for homosexual love and heterosexual promiscuity. It even has strict punishments for ''public hugging''. Granted, this city also kills monogamous heterosexuals who enter relationships without getting the blessing of the church first. However, as a monogamous heterosexual, you ''can'' get the blessing of the church, while homosexuals and promiscuous people cannot. Storytelling-wise, the blatantly homophobic etc. laws of Hedrad are used to highlight that the god Hedrara is in fact NOT a ''good'' god.
* One ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'' plot hook features a mage with old-fashioned ideas of sexual morality casting a spell on a high school so that all the students would redirect their lusts to "more wholesome pursuits" and focus on good old fashioned missionary sex between a married man and woman, as the Lord intended. [[SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny This has resulted in horrible, horrible side effects]].
* ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' compact the Long Night are typically cast as this trope. Though some members are liberal, the majority of portrayals in the books are of heavily conservative fundamentalists.

* Mary's grandmother in ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' believes her MaliciousSlander that her two female teachers are having an affair. She pulls Mary from the school and gets ''all'' the other girls parents to pull them from the school as well. When Martha and Karen try to sue her, they end up losing and their reputations become tarnished because [[MistakenForGay everyone believes they're lesbian]] (which in the time period the story takes place in isn't acceptable). [[spoiler:Martha turns out to be actually gay however the [[{{gayngst}} trauma]] [[DrivenToSuicide drives her to suicide]].]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* [[https://web.archive.org/web/20080115214621/http://www.idrewthis.org/d/20040308.html This]] strip of ''Webcomic/IDrewThis'' features a StrawHypocrite who wants gay marriage banned but claim that "I'm not against gay people, I'm just for traditional marriage"... quickly followed by a flashback of historical guys who are against women and black people being allowed to vote but claim to simply be "for traditional gender roles" and "I'm not against black people, I'm just for traditional slavery!"
* ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie'''s [[ChurchOfHappyology Xena]] starts a loud rant about "sexual perverts" needing to be "quarantined" at Aggie's mere mention of having gay friends (ironic since Fred had mistaken Xena for closeted).
* Zigzagged with Larisa from ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo''; she tells to Zoey that she's completely OK with lesbians (of course, in the pragmatic way of "less competition for hot guys"). Gay guys, on the other hand, are fair game (because it means she can't have them and they add to the competition).
* Homosexuality is one of many, many things that [[TheFundamentalist Seymour]] from ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'' (seen in the page picture) considers inexcusable.
** For bonus points, God in this universe is rather laid back and thinks that Seymour is very FanDumb for him (no, seriously, see the page image for ActivistFundamentalistAntics).
* This [[NonIndicativeName may be]] the character type of [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doctor]] Heteronormative, the "[[BigBad main villain]] [[BuffySpeak dude]]" from one of Jimbo's {{Romance Novel}}s in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent''. Of course, he only just heard the term when naming the character, and thought it sounded like [[AGoodNameForARockBand a good name for a]] {{steampunk}} villain.
* ''Webcomic/WelcomeToRoom305'':
** The PoliticallyIncorrectHero is a straight guy who thinks being gay is disgusting. Unlucky for him, his roommate Hom is gay. He learns to become more tolerant but is still pretty biased.
** Yoona is very against being gay and tries to [[CureYourGays make her gay twin brother straight]]. [[spoiler:As it turns out Yoon Sung is straight but ''[[ArmouredClosetGay Yoona]]'' is the gay one. She has a lost of self-hating {{gayngst}}, not helped by Yoon Sung being one of these in high school. He realized his errors later but his sister in turn went deeper in the closet and began retaliating against gay people. Yoon Sung pretends to be gay in order to convince her sister that being gay isn't a bad thing]].

* Website/NotAlwaysRight:
** Shows a failed attempt, in [[http://notalwaysright.com/fighting-ignorance-with-ignorance/1617 "Fighting ignorance with ignorance"]]. It was done by a customer in a bookstore, and was foiled by the salesperson [[ObfuscatingStupidity pretending to be equally ignorant]].
** A rather disturbing inversion here: [[http://notalwaysright.com/pray-the-gay-to-stay/14285 this woman wants to make her toddler gay...by showing him pornography.]]
* WebVideo/ZinniaJones talks about this in several episodes. For example, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_xsFId_eI ''coming out'']], which claims that a lot of their antics are designed to ''[[InternalizedCategorism make]]'' [[InternalizedCategorism gay people hate themselves]].
* WebVideo/OutWithDad: Vanessa's mother.
* Two straw-like but very entertaining examples on WebSite/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses:
** The Makeover Fairy from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, who proclaims pretty girls shouldn't read and has impossibly high-level standards of beauty and masculinity.
** Douchey [=McNitpick=], a personification of FanDumb, who includes WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic wearing eyeliner as a fuck-up that he should be hanged for, calls him a whore at one point, and hates on WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick for being a TheLadette.
* The NewsParody ''[[Blog/ElChiguireBipolar ChigüireBipolar]]'' sometimes uses these as [[StrawCharacter Straw Characters]].
* ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'''s increasingly villainous interpretation of Professor Xavier is quick to judge homosexuals and uses his mind control as a form of conversion therapy.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Briefly mentioned in the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS22E11FlamingMoe Flaming Moe]]". Right after Moe is outed as a ''heterosexual'' in his campaign for mayor, his disappointed gay supporters complain that they now have to choose between voting for the phony gay and "[[ArmouredClosetGay a Republican whose record is so anti-gay, he's clearly secretly super gay.]]"
** In "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E15HomersPhobia Homer's Phobia]]", Homer was worried Bart was becoming gay and spent most of the episode trying to keep him straight by forcibly exposing him to "manly" things like hunting and cigarette ads. (The second attempt backfires spectacularly because the ad portrays two panty-clad, pillow-fighting pinup girls, and Bart decides he wants to smoke ''their'' brand.)
** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS16E10TheresSomethingAboutMarrying There's Something About Marrying]]" has Reverend Lovejoy give a very passive-aggressive remark about how he "has no opinion for or against your sinful lifestyle" while explaining why he won't perform gay marriages after the city legalizes them. Homer, sensing money to be made, flips on his usual semi-homophobic attitude and has himself ordained as a minister.
* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'':
** Stan Smith, though he gets better through CharacterDevelopment mostly relating to his gay neighbors Greg and Terry. This is notable for being the only lesson that Stan learns which actually sticks, as he's notable for AesopAmnesia, which he lampshades in one episode by stating he "doesn't learn lessons". And even then, learning to accept gay people and accepting that they have the right to have children and start families was the focus of two separate episodes.
** In one episode, he puts on a play about Abraham Lincoln's bodyguard, which, due to some unintentional HoYay, attracts a largely gay audience and gets him invited to a meeting of the log cabin republicans. Initially horrified, he eventually tries to choose to be gay. When he realizes it's not a choice, he storms the RNC and proclaims that "It turns out being gay is not a choice. But you know what is a choice? [[SpoofAesop Being a Democrat!]]"
** And then a third episode where he had to learn to accept that some Heteronormative Crusaders are just intolerant: there's no FreudianExcuse, ArmoredClosetGay, or even (as was the case for him) ignorance about homosexuality being contagious or a choice. These folks understand what being gay means and just ''hate'' it.
* ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'': Moralton has a noted amount of [[TheFundamentalist Fundamentalists]], and Reverend Putty shows disdain towards Coach Stopframe's sexuality. Unlike other members of the town, Putty lets his prejudices go, and is quite accepting when he learns that his daughter is a lesbian. In one of the cut episodes, he was comfortable performing a lesbian wedding, but could not as the marriage license was rejected.
