* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'': In the episode "The Box," Jake deduces that part of the murderer's motive was that he was addicted to a high-class drug. Jake keeps calling him "junkie scum," only to repeatedly apologize and remind the suspect that the murder was the real problem, not the drugs.
-->'''Jake:''' All right, then let me paint you a picture of Philip, a successful periodontist that's become addicted to Diazepam, a sedative I take because I'm junkie scum. Also, for real, addiction is a disease. I would be super empathetic if you hadn't murdered a man.


* [[Wrestling/SethRollins Tyler Black]] got chants of "You Are Gay!" from the AIW fans, which were first ignored until Johnny Gargano answered "He ''is'' pretty gay, isn't he?" but changed the subject, as his problems with Black had nothing to do with his supposed sexual orientation.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebComic/{{Housepets}}'', Fido keeping his relationship with a cat, Sabrina, a secret had let his superior, Sgt. Ralph, to fear his odd behavior was hiding illegal activity. Finding this out was a relief, though it came about after an international incident (Fido interrupting Sabrina's arranged marriage with Jata) that got Fido suspended from the force for three weeks.
-->'''Ralph:''' Who you decide to snuggle with after hours is none of the department's business nor concern.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the [[FootnoteFever footnotes]] in Vera Nazarian's ''Pride and Platypus'' clarifies that the eighttenth-century phrase "[Bingley was] so much engaged with Mr. Darcy..." does ''not'' mean that they are engaged to be married.

* Creator/RowanAtkinson has a sketch called "Are You A Gay Christian?" that is essentially the reverse of this trope.

God's like that. He ''hates'' poofs."]] See it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJy2UucDcDw here]].
