Yeah. Be careful not to wipe every trope with rape in the title, unless you want us to start some tropes like Mind Rape from scratch with a new name.
I understand why you're wiping Rape Tropes, though. They're a disaster waiting to happen.
Couldn't we just turn all the rape tropes into locked stubs? I have no idea what google's complaint was, so maybe that's off the table, but "No, if you even mention rape, we won't let you get money from our ads" seems extreme.
As far as I can tell, Animeg is saying that people will try to get around it by censoring "rape" and by shoving stuff onto other pages in misuse of those namespaces. Personally, I think he's wrong, but eh.
But this isn't censorship of rape in fiction, it's just getting rid of the rape tropes, which reflect poorly on us because of No Negativity.
Acting like this is some kind of great offense is kind of weird, and pretty immature, to be honest. It'simply the sensible thing to do given the circumstances.
My mistake. But still, the pages were kind of tasteless IMO. I'd rather they were rewritten instead of removed, but this isn't that bad either.

Please, don't put words in my mouth. I'm not trying to start an argument. Especially not one where I'm being misrepresented.
Anyway, it's not so much the titles ( Actually, I wasn't fond of many of the titles. For instance, the subject of the crowned below. ) or subjects of the tropes, but the way the articles were written and the examples listed on the pages.
Also, I didn't like the fact that people actually shouted down the suggestion of a trigger warning on a page once.
But again, these are just my opinions.

*blinks for a few seconds as the news sinks in*
So EVERY Rape Trope is now verboten, by order of Fast Eddie? Even though rape is undeniably a part of fiction, and happens in a lot of fictional works, even those that are not porn or pedo-pandering? Even when it is the driving force of a plot?
I am loath to invoke What the Hell, Hero? on a real-life person, but at this point, nothing else seems appropriate. Really, WHAT THE HELL?!
I'm not putting words in your mouth, I'm trying to understand your position.
I disagree. All those pages had been the subject of a massive clean-up effort. All of them had multiple people, including mods, go over the examples and remove all of the creepiness. We even renamed all the ones that could potentially be misunderstood as condoning rape. They were pretty damn clean.
Alternative Titles: Its Not Rape If You Enjoyed It

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
