Rape Tropes cleanup:

[up] I think what he's saying is that Date CrÍpe sounds very similar to Date Rape - perhaps a little too close for comfort.

Yes. "Crepe" rhymes with "rape". I know that "crepe" is pronounced differently in some parts of the country, but the page is indexed under Just for Pun, which makes the creator's intention clear.

[up] I have to agree that that should probably be renamed. If you pronounce "crepe" the French way (approximately "crehp"), it's not a problem; but if you use the common (American) English pronunciation, the name turns into Date Crape—one consonant away from date rape.

And, as I said, that was obviously what the creator meant. Yuck.
 
TRS is at capacity at the moment, but if we brainstorm a few alt titles here, that will make the thread go faster when it does happen.

Not that I can think of anything. Of course.
"Sweets for Your Sweetheart"? "Sugar for Your Sugar"?

I see the Awesomeness.
I vaguely recall that one in the Anime Tropes thread as some kind of specific "generic date food" rather than just general sweets on the date.

Crowner called. Do the switch.

Switch done. Wicks just need to be moved.

Seeking for Light
Wicks moved.

Is there any update on the status of Victim Falls For Rapist?

The Shadows Devour You.
On Date CrÍpe, Sweets Make Dates Sweet?

Actually the trope does specifically refer to crepes... so the title would have to reflect that. Just with a better choice of words.

We have already dealt with that. There was a thread on Date CrÍpe.

Is there anything else that needs to be done here?

Quite possibly. A while ago, someone recreated Rape Is Love/Victim Falls For Rapist as Loving Force, and they started moving wicks. Though the page has been cut, most of the wicks are still around. They need to be removed, with trope entries perhaps pulled to discussion pages, and sometimes sentences with potholes to it need to be reworded to retain the information that the pothole was meant to convey.

Are we still in the clean & lock business? Because if yes, we are nowhere near done.

Well, I've fixed and lock some really problematic ones but I'm pretty much worn out. The subject is also very unpleasant so I can see why it may be difficult to gather hands.

Moving to short term, btw.

Well, let me try Rape Portrayed As Redemption:
  • The Rapeman: The entire text after "...women." can probably go - not only isn't it part of this work, it's fan reaction stuff.
  • The Bellatrix Lestrange thing under Fan Fic is a Zero Context Example.
  • The BDSM literature example looks very general - not what I would search in the example section.

Bumping this in absence of a better forum: Ought we do something about new "Abuse/Rape/Whatever is OK if X" tropes?

Terradorablyfying
There are new ones? If so, I expect they can be moved to the Double Standard X format, though bringing them here first would of course be good.

This YKTTW.

That can just be renamed before launching. The sponsor hasn't come back to the draft so they haven't seen the proposal that it be Double Standard Abuse Child On Adult; if it turns Up for Grabs or when they come back, changing it should be fine.

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

Alternative Titles: Rape As Redemption

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