Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Series/TheLateShowWithDavidLetterman Late Night With David Letterman]]''. From "Top Ten Reasons Why Mills College Students Don't Want Men Attending" (May 18, 1990)
-->"9. Annual production of [[Creator/AntonChekhov Chekhov]]'s ''Theatre/ThreeSisters'' replaced by 3-day [[Film/TheThreeStooges Stooge-a-Thon.]]"


* Played with in ''Franchise/{{Emergency}}'' when the personnel of Station 51 are visited by a female TV reporter who assumes they are not cultured. Indignant, they set out to prove her wrong by showing all the sophisticated arts hobbies they indulge in. Unfortunately, they do ''too well'' as the previously promised football game tickets she promised them and they were eagerly anticipating were switched out for opera show ones by her on the assumption that they would prefer them.

Added DiffLines:

* Detailed in "The Truth About Men," a collaboration of male country music artists including Tracy Byrd, Blake Shelton, Eddie Montomery, Troy Gentry, and Andy Griggs.


* ''DragonBall'' does this with Goku, though he was raised on the outskirts of civilization not to mention his later revelation of being a Saiyan (and the head truama as an infant). However, most of the Saiyans are 'uncultured' by human standards, being a race devoted to fighting.

* Unlike the rest of his male comrades who are enthralled with the extravagance that the taxpayers' money give to the Midland aristocratic-held ball, [[{{Manga/Berserk}} Guts]] doesn't seem very impressed with his surroundings (noblewomen and all) and spends the majority of the time supporting the wall away from the commotion. [[spoiler: In fact, he only went to the ball in order to counterattack in the assassination plot against Griffith.]] Guts also isn't big on reading, so the only chance he'll be picking up one of [[DoorStopper those sleeping pills]] is if there is an [[CrowningMomentOfFunny array of pornographic art in it]]. But what do you expect? He's a mercenary.

Compare MenDontCry, WomenAreWiser, BuffoonishTomcat is a related trope for cat examples. When [[GuysAreSlobs the man is a slob]], this trope is almost always included also, but the opposite isn't always true. Surprisingly, despite the fact that TheLadette can be basically summarized as "a man's attitudes/behaviors in a woman's body", you very rarely see ladettes who have the same aversion to "culture". Contrast RealMenWearPink for manly men unafraid to show their softer side, and CulturedBadass for manly men who find your lack of appreciation for opera grounds for a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' had an episode where men and women were separated. The men's half of the world turned into a barbaric Film/MadMax style wasteland dedicated to junk food, sports, cars and fighting. The side with the women became an advanced civilization of fine arts similar to Ancient Greece.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' had this happen in the episode "Exile From Guyville", where a fight between Duckman and Bernice ends up causing a national exodus between the genders when each side gets sick of the various foibles and flaws of the others, leading to the entire U.S separating down the middle, with the East Coast going to the women, and the West Coast going to the men. Its even specifically stated that the East was given to the women for its culture, apparently ignoring Los Angeles. The womens side becomes a refined, cultural place while the men turns theirs into a mix between a giant sports bar, MadMax and a cattle ranch. ''On purpose'', mind you. The men also take the opportunity to just run around in their underwear constantly.

Primarily in {{Sit Com}}s: Men absolutely [[AtTheOperaTonight loathe opera, classical music, visual arts, and books]]. But they LOOOOOVE sports. If they don't act in this manner, there's either something wrong with them or they're CampGay. Never mind that virtually all {{opera}} and classical music -- and most literary books -- [[MostWritersAreMale were written by men]] specifically as manly diversions, those things aren't manly!

** For being a badass, leather jacket wearing vampire, Angel was pretty psyched. Then again, Angel is a badass, leather jacket wearing vampire who has been known to sing awful, mangled karaoke versions of [[BarryManilow "Mandy"]] because he "thinks it's pretty".

Blacksad himself is only there for a job and is somewhat indifferent to the paintings. However one woman who is part of a left leaning intellectual group says that cultured and smart don't always go together.
