I don't see how it is any worse than Reptiles Are Abhorrent
. It is creators using certain recognizable pattern (people finding rabbits and their kin to be cute and vaguely funny) to create certain reactions in the audience, or as a cause for character's reactions to a given creature.
Just because something is Truth in Television
in the subjective opinion of many doesn't mean it is Not a Trope
I still think that from a marketing point of view, gutting a popular trope with lots of inbounds* and no real flame bait or negativity associated with it is bad for TV Tropes and sets a dangerous precedent for gutting more such tropes that are likewise extremely popular with our users as a whole (who are not represented at TRS). Still, if we have to turn it into an exampleless index then we should create tropes that cover the full range of how rabbits are used in the media, and one of these being used as a source of cuteness.
- Inbounds under the new custom title are up to 191, up from 103 on October 25th. Almost a 100% increase over the course of less than a month. The ptitle was 6,961 since Feb '09, and that doesn't take into account people that visited the page from internal links or search engines.
