Conservative Trope Examples

  • Observe and Report (2009)
    Ronnie (Seth Rogan) has sex with Brandi (Anna Faris) while she's passed out on tequila and antidepressants and pauses realizing that maybe this is not a good thing to do. But it's all good because Brandi wakes up and immediately yells out, "Did I tell you to stop, mother-f*#$*#!?" And so he is free to continue without worry.
  • Varsity Blues (1999)
    Tweeder says, "Listen. You give 'em a Percocet, two Vicodin and a couple of beers, and the panties drop. It's very nice."
    Staff Aside
    Mox laughs initially and then calls him out saying, "Tweeder, you think you'll enjoy prison?" Tweeder plays an over the top sexist but it's still making light of the very serious idea of drugging women to have sex.
  • Animal House (1978)
    Alpha Delta pledge Pinto is debating whether to have sex with the mayor's unconscious daughter after she passed out drunk on the bedroom floor. He goes back and forth with his "Devil," who forcefully pressures him to rape her and his "Angel," who in a high-pitched "goody two shoe" voice says he will regret it if he does. Even though Pinto eventually sides with his "Angel" the joking nature of the scene downplays rape culture and makes it seem that deciding whether or not to have sex with an unconscious person is a difficult choice.
