Just zis guy
All of the "Author X" tropes could probably use some attention (particularly for making them sound less Complaining About People You Dont Like), but that's not necessarily a P5 issue.

Yeah, this is for stuff pertaining to the Panel for the Purging of Pornographic and Pedo-Pandering Content. Stuff that needs to be de-whined should be discussed in this thread.

> titular character reduces age of consent to twelve
> Filibuster Freefall mentions prepubescent kids "knowingly consenting" to sex with adults in the same book
> author is known for pedophilic Author Appeal so I'd believe a charge of deliberate pandering

... Is this something we need to flag?

(Also, I'm reading the article Iaculus linked. Pedophilia and honey as lube?! Tatham Mound was never on my to-read list to begin with but now it's really not...)

Well, unless all of his works are like that, I don't think we can cut Piers Anthony wholesale.

I meant Bio Of A Space Tyrant. Don't ask me, I haven't read any of the guy's work...

Edit: from the work page here, though, the guy making that 12-year-old age of consent law doesn't sound all that sympathetic. I'll leave it to someone who's read the thing to decide if it's a problem.

The Filibuster Freefall mentions prepubescent kids "knowingly consenting" to sex with adults in the same book bit sounds like it warrants at least a look over. The age of consent 12 thing doesn't, since they're all basically guesswork.

[up]Uhh... you are aware of this site's policies on pre-teens fucking, yeah? As for 'he's not really that sympathetic', the whole purpose of the series seems to be suggesting that the titular Space Tyrant was just misunderstood - unfortunately, one of the ways Anthony chooses to demonstrate that is apparently going 'yeah, he didn't rape those kids, they came onto him'.

What's precedent ever done for us?

[up]Yes. That's why I said that the "pre-pubescent children" bit warranted a lookover.
Pronounced YAK-you-luss
[up]Right, but wouldn't you agree that even an Author Tract on lowering the age of consent to pre-teen levels/ outright eliminating it would be a sign of paedo-pandering? I mean, c'mon, there may be some individual variation, but there's a pretty clear difference in physical and mental development between your average twelve-year-old and your average sixteen-year-old.

Judging by the other wiki, there are places where it is that low or only slightly higher, and that's all what I am going to say as we are digressing here.

To get back on topic, Bio Of A Space Tyrant does not seem to be creepy.
I think Piers Anthony can be allowed but cleaned to keep any fans of his unusual tastes from talking too much about that.

Can we please find a better page image for Christina Hendricks? It's making us look like a bunch of perverts.

Maybe there's one of just her face? The picture's not really all that lewd, it's just her bust is undeniably, uh, tractful.
I cut up one dozen new men and you will die somewhat, again and again.

Christina Hendricks has a problem where there is no image of her that doesn't immediately draw attention to her chest. This is because she is rather blessed in that department. I can't find anything where she's not busty.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

What about Wikipedia's image?
Egad. Can we please take a chainsaw to the Real Life section of If It's You, It's Okay? So much of that is zero context examples that look like they're either memes or typed with one hand.
Rev up the chainsaw!
I'm going to cut all the Zero Context Examples right now, since they're hardly distinguishable from Troper Tales. The ones that are related to actual celebrities and have some sort of documentation can stay.

Maybe THIS is the correct thread tongue Are the gorn examples THAT bad? And what, exactly, IS paedopandering anyway?

Paedopandering is stuff that appeals to paedophiles (i.e sexualized children) and comes off as creepy.
Correction: Stuff that is meant to appeal to pedophiles. Fanservice of twelve year-olds in a series aimed at twelve year-olds might make pedophiles happy, but that is clearly not the point of it.

I just took the nattersaw through To Love-Ru after it was reported in NATTER ALERT. The troper reporting it meentioned that it might need lewdness cleanup, and since Septimus Heap has no such feelings as sexual creepy (as opposed to Nightmare Fuel creepy), I ask someone to check over the page.

If I wasn't so terrible with wiki work I'd do it myself, but the Accidental Pervert entry on there has to come back in some way, unless it became a character trope and I forgot.

[up]I pulled that entry to discussion because it was too Thread Mode-y.
