Does Not Illustrate: Masculine Girl Feminine Boy get usage counts

I think that page needs a picture that illustrates the trope more obviously. I personally had to think for a while to understand why the girl in that image was supposed to be masculine (she holds the "boy" - that's a little bit too subtle in my opinion, because I think that her appearance is still 100% feminine).

It's about as subtle as a rock to the face.

Keep Until Better Image Suggested
In uffish thought
The image isn't about her wearing masculine clothes; it's about how she's taking the man's role in lifting the other person, and he has the stereotypically feminine pose. Personally, I think it's a good and very clear image.

No replacement suggestion in OP.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
You're going to have to find a top-notch pic to beat the current one.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

My issue is it just fits gender role reversals in general. The lift doesn't indicate the femininity or masculinity of the couple.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.

Keep. The groom certainly looks more effeminate than the bride.

Definitely Keep Until Better Image Suggested on this one. The Bridal Carry is a very traditional thing, and I think reversing the roles sums up the trope pretty well.
He IS holding flowers, but if an amazing picture from a work was shown, I'd consider it.

Keep, the trope is about when a couple act their opposite gender not the way they dress and/or look.
I can't think of anything good for a signature.

Keep it, it's perfectly fine.
It's just fine for the trope.

This lagged for damn near a month and a half and the consensus is Keep Until Better Image Suggested at worst, so I'mma go ahead and lock this.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
