Classic JAFAAC: Everybody Wants The Hermaphrodite get usage counts

Don't know how long this trope has been around, but it seems like it hasn't been for longer than a month. At any rate, the image is a classic example of Just a Face and a Caption.

I motion to simply remove it, because just going by the examples on the page so far, I don't even know HOW we can show this trope.

Support.

And I'm not expecting to get a SFW image out of this one.

Support pull.

And yeah, I can't think of any way to picture this in a SFW fashion either.

The only real possibility I can think of is Greek statuary, though we'd have to make an It's Not Porn, It's Art exception, which I don't believe is something we do here.

Actually, in some cases we have allowed for mild nudity in classical art, but one with enough detail to demonstrate this trope might still be pushing it.

That's why I suggest to simply remove the original picture. Now that it's pictureless, I say Keep Until Better Is Suggested...

.... (Yes, I know exactly what I said and how obvious it should be to everyone.)

Could use this.

Guy is a guy and a girl, low profile and no nudity. But again, you'd need a picture that looks very androgynous or again it'd be Just a Face and a Caption

That is just a JAFAAC but I am now reading the manga so lets see if there is a good panel in the thing. (god its a funny Ecchi manga.)

[up] Yes the series is hilarious.

Not sure what's more important to the picture, The Reveal (preferably a SFW picture) that shows they are indeed a Hermaphrodite, or the harem aspect of this trope .

I support Keep Until better is found.

As others have said, it really is hard to find a good image for this as most look like women or aren't clean. Desire of Sandman is one of the few purely androgynous hermaphrodites everyone actually wants in-world that also is generally "clean".

By the way, it's not Just a Face and a Caption: the caption linked to a character description and stated in a subtle way that Desire is a Hermaphrodite. Maybe it was too subtle? Let's try changing the caption. It sounds more like this vote was started because of the caption and not the image.

As a side note, Desire is a better example as not only are they actually androgynous, Desire is better known in general because Sandman has a broader publishing and reader base than Boku no Futatsu no Tsubasa does so more people will "get" why the image is there.

Please.

Keep Until Better Image Suggested. The character is androgynous without being NSFW and the caption helps with the last little bit.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

My suggestion of Keep Until Better Image Suggested is that we keep it imageless unless we find a better image. Right now I don't see a reason why it needs a picture.

By the way, it's not Just a Face and a Caption: the caption linked to a character description and stated in a subtle way that Desire is a Hermaphrodite. Maybe it was too subtle? Let's try changing the caption. It sounds more like this vote was started because of the caption and not the image.

That's exactly what JAFAAC is. If we need a caption- ANYTHING BELOW THE PICTURE- to explain or link to the reasoning why the picture works, then it's still JAFAAC. The caption as it was, was still explaining who Desire was and why people should know that It's a hermaphrodite who everyone desires. Nothing in the picture itself shows the "desirability" part that is suppose to be shown.

I see the Awesomeness.
I'd prefer to pull and leave it imageless.

[up][up]That's not what JAFAAC means, what it means is that the picture is so worthless that the caption does all the explaining. The caption can still be necessary as long as the image contributes. In this case, the image shows the androgyny pretty clearly, so it's not JAFAAC. It would JAFAAC if the character in the picture wasn't androgynous, but that's not the case here. Doesn't mean it's necessarily a good picture, though. I'm going to vote Pull, because the "Everybody wants them" part of the trope is completely absent except for a vague implication in the caption.

I see nothing overtly androgynous about it. Honestly, I see a woman. An albino woman, but a woman.

Just saying..

"I'd prefer to pull and leave it imageless."

Agree. The "Desire" pick barely says Hermaphrodite and doesn't at all say Everybody Wants The.
