Examples Bordering on Testosterone Poisoning? NEW CLOCK: Rated M For Manly get usage counts

My argument is that we don't split tropes by how they are played with, in that sense it doesn't matter if it is parodied or played for laughs or played with a ham sandwich there needs to be a much harder line. The Guy Flick idea was about dividing it between "meant to appeal to guys because of it's masculinity" and a particular element that demonstrates extreme manliness. It's like the difference between a plot trope and a character trope. All tropes may be played with but that doesn't mean that if something is played for drama it is somehow a different concept.

Clock is set. I'm not sure anything needs to be done here.

I doubt it as well. If anything, we can clarify the descriptions but otherwise we don't need to take action.

Can you do that? I am not good at writing descriptions.

I took a shot at both of them. What say you? Better? worse? too stripped down? Just right?

In any case the examples do need to be checked and fixed if they're wrong. So do the wicks.

I personally judge it as an improvement, especially since the def of Testosterone Poisoning previously looked rather stupid.

Does Testosterone Poisoning have to be limited to works only? Iconic characters like Negima's Jack Rakan and Full Metal Alchemist's Major Armstrong clearly serve in part as parodies of exaggerated masculinity, and there are others like them.

Good point. Tweaked TP again. Take another look, please.

Hmmmm, that description says both characters and works, but if it starts with works it's certainly going to be used primarily for works.

Tweaked again. The first sentence says "works or characters"; one or the other has to come first.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.

Seems fine by me.

So, can this be called resolved? Or is there more to do?

Wick cleanup is to do. And after last month's runs, I am completely burned out.

Clocking as requested. Move it or lose it.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
