When a straight person who may not be outwardly macho enough for other straight people is mistaken for gay and physically, emotionally, or mentally abused as a result.

A male child molestation victim, victimized by his mother, can have a distrust of women and be mis-identified as gay, even though the victim simply prefers to practice his hetrosexuality with prostitutes or under other "controlled" conditions. Nonetheless, at work, his co-workers are "Stray-bashing" him for being gay, although he is not.

Similarly, bashing a Hawaiian for being Mexican, a Hindu for being Muslim, etc...
