Single Proposition: Pretty Boy Tropes
Vote up for yes, down for no.
At issue:
There are two tropes, Bishonen and Pretty Boy. Both titles mean the same thing, but both of them really refer to two different tropes.

  • Pretty Boy, while the description does not say so yet, carries the idea that pretty men are weak and girly.
  • Bishonen is more about how pretty men are better at things than normal guys to complement their good looks, thus contrasting the weak Pretty Boy.

Stats:

Main/Bishonen found in: 3206 articles, excluding discussions.

This title has brought 5,330 people to the wiki from non-search engine links since 20th FEB '09.
This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.

Rename Pretty Boy and Bishōnen to make the titles clearer, then rewrite the tropes as appropriate to be clearer.

Reasons to rename:
  • Both trope names mean the same thing
  • Bishōnen, due to its name, is listed as an Anime only trope, but it does appear in Western works.
