I'd like to bring the headline to everyone's attention:
Rape Tropes are back, but will be displayed ads from non-Google sources. In addition, they will all be cleaned and (precautionarily) locked.
As Google ads are still on other pages, that seems like a very nice compromise if Google agrees to it.
Good to see that cleanup is continuing.
I still think that was ridiculous enough for me to justify speeding up the phasing out Google ads. Clear out Fetish Fuel sections and Troper Tales, I can live with that. Cutting porn/pedophilia? Fine and good. But leading to a disabling of an entire index which is useful in fiction, particularly since there had been a sizable cleanup effort?
... yeah, we should still consider schemes to phase it out.

@Nocturna: That page's fate has yet to be decided.*
My personal opinion as a troper is that it should return, but that holds no weight.
In the mean time, though, I'd be great if everyone could focus on the pages we know for sure that we're keeping. Rewrite anything that sounds too gushy, is rape apologia, or reads like it was typed with one hand. Whenever a page looks clean, please make a bolded statement to that effect so that we know to lock the page.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.
Question to the moderation: Several of the renamed rape tropes had their redirects cut. I've moved/will be moving all the wicks which pointed to the old name that showed up on the Related To page, but should I use the deleted page wick finder tool to make sure I haven't missed any?
I don't like any about Common Rapist Defense or similar, because it tells you prettymuch nothing about what the trope actually is. My favorite is currently Arousal Consent Confusion, but the one Septimus mentioned above is also good.
Caught a small problem post lock on Its Not Rape If You Enjoyed It. The example from the film version of Carrie was deleted in the clean, but the mention of the novel is still there. It simply says to "see the film example" which is no longer present.
The title is a rape pun? Not sure how that could be.
Alternative Titles: Rape As Redemption

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.
