+22 (yeas:26 nays:4) +19 (yeas:23 nays:4) +19 (yeas:22 nays:3) Shiksa Goddess: Same as with other "Sexy Stereotype" tropes. Listing cross-religious couples implies they're only lovers because of his sexual fetish, which is simply degrading (and latently anti-semitic). The complementary trope Matzo Fever is already on the NRLEP index. [Added 5 July, 4:30 AM]
+17 (yeas:20 nays:3) Temporarily a Villain; to have real-life examples of this would be an implicit form of calling real people evil, albeit only temporarily; not to mention the question of when exactly they were evil or when they were good.
+13 (yeas:15 nays:2) +12 (yeas:19 nays:7) Only Sane Man: Too controversial and basically unverifiable in real life, generally leads to complaining. [Added 15 June, 6:45 am.]
+12 (yeas:18 nays:6) +12 (yeas:19 nays:7) Politically Correct History: Due to the trope's nature, any example here is political soapboxing. But the trope is about real history misrepresented in fiction, not merely about governments or people denying historical facts in their nation's history.

: Too controversial, just another way of calling a real person "evil". [Added 12 June, 8:00 AM]
+5 (yeas:17 nays:12) +5 (yeas:12 nays:7) +5 (yeas:19 nays:14) Blue and Orange Morality
: The Real Life section is being used to accuse certain moral criteria of certain people as 'strange', 'foreign' and/or 'alien' to normal human standards simply because we don't understand them. Strangeness regarding human standards is only in the eye of the beholder, and is more of a Values Dissonance
issue than anything else. Also, we haven't found any intelligent non-human lifeforms with which we can communicate to compare our morality systems. [Added 5 July, 5:15 AM]
