* In ''Film/TheLastDaysOfDisco'', one character talks about how much fun she had seeing ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' with her little niece and nephew. Another replies by deconstructing the movie as promoting an unrealistic and self-destructive view towards relationships with the opposite sex, "imprinting on their little psyches the idea that smooth-talking delinquents recently escaped from the local pound are a good match for nice girls from sheltered homes."

* In ''VideoGame/SunlessSkies'', your first introduction to Parliament is being asked to take sides in a heated political debate: should Parliament honor QueenVictoria by renaming Wednesday to "Victoria's Day", or should it punish her for her crimes against democracy by renaming Victoria sponge cake to "the People's Cake"?

Cake"? You later learn that ever since the Queen went full autocrat and flung the Parliament to the edge of Albion so they wouldn't bother her, they have all been like this.

* Hetty in ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' clearly believes this, which is part of why she [[TheChessmaster relies so heavily on political manipulations]].

* The page quote originates from Matthew Stover's ''Franchise/StarWars: Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'' novelization. Palpatine and Anakin Skywalker are having what Skywalker feels is a moral issue about right and wrong, and when Palpatine discusses the Jedi Order's politics, Anakin states that the Jedi aren't political, resulting in Palaptine's response that, "In a democracy, ''everything'' is political, Anakin. And everyone."

* {{Zigzagged}} in ''Podcast/WithinTheWires'' "Cassette 1: Tate Modern (1971)," when artist Roimata Mangakāhia dismisses art critic Alphra Bond as hypersensitive, imagining political subversiveness and incitement to war in works she reviewed.
-->'''Mangakāhia''': Bond believed all artists benefited from war and strife, as it gave them a more interesting story to tell. ...Of course the idea...is abhorrent and simplistic
::But the painting "The Charcoal Dish," of which Mangakāhia is a fan and Bond the sole detractor, may [[CassandraTruth genuinely]] be a subversive critique of the sinister OneWorldOrder, of ''Wires,'' depicting innocent people happily served up from a giant dish-shaped building onto a laden picnic blanket, to be eaten by hidden monsters.

* On ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and its associated universe, anything can escalate into PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad and/or into ultra-violent political discussion, even voting for a new school mascot (which makes Sean "P. Diddy" Combs appear and deliver his "true" vision of "Vote Or Die": vote, or get hunted down like a dog to the ends of the Earth and shot dead GangstaStyle).

[[caption-width-right:276:Banana flambé with a side order of StrawFeminist.]]



* In ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', this trope is parodied in a FlashBack in which [[{{Tsundere}} Yuki]] calls a banana flambé 'oppressive' and the waiter who is trying to serve her this dessert a 'patriarchal phallocrat.' It's parody because she does this out of her "phallophobia", not out of any genuine feminist conviction.
