Trope description re-written after discussion on this thread: Trope Description Improvement Drive. Definition is the same, some material moved to a new Analysis page.

I'd like to know if this would count as an example: "In the UK, there are many advertisements for toys to do with robotic insects often feature pre-teen boys as being rebellious and mature, while girls almost always feminine, hang out with one friend, and flip out at the near sight of the toys. While the gender roles of the advertisement have now changed, these advertisements still air as late as the 2010s."

Under "the Simpsons," someone wrote, "It's also guilty of trying to "modernize" problems and situations that nobody actually faces anymore." Having not watched the show recently (so I shouldn't talk about it directly), I really think there should be some examples.

Is the Casino Royale example really this trope? It seems like it's only on this page because the drink was discontinued in the 80's. It's just a small anachronism; the rest of the film is in no way two decades behind.

If you don't think Casino Royale is an example, then remove it.

How come nobody but me has posted in the Troper Tales section of this trope?
