The name's very, very misleading; according to the trope description a Little Kid Lover is a innocent character who gets mistaken for a pedophile due to out-of-context behavior but (unsurprisingly) a lot of people assume it's about pedophiles in general and link to it whenever anything even remotely related to pedophilia is being described.
Out of exactly 100 wicks 40 were misuse. 39 were just substitutes for the word "pedophile" and 1 was just about a character who's friendly to children.
I've already cleaned up all the misuse but I think we should rename this to prevent further confusion.
The issue with that is that we don't really have a trope for pedophiles. Official policy is that anything regarding pedophiles should be wicked to Pædo Hunt, a trope that was originally about people utilizing the outrage over pedophiles to further their own goals. We're apparently not supposed to make other tropes regarding the issue. At least, that was the case last time I checked.
Ginger: Yes, but the point I was originally making was that the misuse was natural and because of a reason similar to Missing Supertrope Syndrome: There's nowhere else to dump the trope, so they send it there.
Lu: My original YKTTW was pedophiles as villains. Also, really, a pedophile in a work is usually going to be significant.
It's the same word however you spell it. Please, let's not derail into that.
We can make a British redirect or whatever if desired. Coming up with a clear name is the main concern here, never mind the spelling.
