I find that the Abney Park song "Herr Drosselmeyer's Doll" is an inversion of this trope- the song is about a robot doll that is used by men, if you know what I mean.(wink, wink) However in their RPG Airship Pirates, Dolls are revealed to be self-aware but unable to show it in Neovictorian cities due to the fact that showing that they're sentient will cause them to be sent to the Change Cage.

So in context, the song is really about a sentient robot that is being raped but is unable to stop the continual rape because it's illegal for her to show that she's sentient.

Whether this is an inversion of this trope or belonging in another trope altogether, it really doesn't change the fact that this has become a very depressing song now that there's a proper context for it.
