^^ If I had to guess I would say he meant that the fact we have these tropes about breasts specifically when they are based on broader themes we could be using instead makes it looks like tvtropes is obsessed with boobies.
To be fair though I think that is a reflection of the media's obsession with breasts. Like, we have a trope for 'person is indifferent to an attribute most people find sexy (Indifferent Beauty
),' but if we included the examples about ladies being indifferent about their breast size specifically those examples would outnumber the others. Because examples about breast take a specific form and are very common they could qualify as a sub-tropes, and this is not because editors are breast obsessed nessisarily, but because the media we draw our examples from is. Ditto for 'woman dislikes having big boobs because she gets too much attention' (basically a subtrope of So Beautiful, It's a Curse
) and 'woman is proud of having big boobs' (basically a subtrope of Proud Beauty
). Personally, I can see why people want them split off, but I think I would prefer just sticking them together.
If we do split though, I propose that instead of seperating 'big boobs' out of 'beauty' we make the distinction between beauty and sexual appeal. So, for example, instead of Proud Breasts
we could have a trope that included dudes who were boastful about having large cocks or women who are proud of their hindparts or whatever. Hell, we could include characters who boast about their Power Perversion Potential
Hell, we cold take this a step furhter and get rid of A-Cup Angst
and replace it with something like I Just Want To Be Sexy
, a counterpart to I Just Want to Be Beautiful
that focuses on characters who want to gain attributes that will make people consider them as potential sexual partners, rather than character who just want to be prettier. Pretty much everything in A-Cup Angst
could go in there, but it could also include guys who want to be more cut or taller or have a bigger penis in order to attract more sexual partners. I think that might go some ways in getting people to focus less on the tits and more on the tropes.
I suppose 'woman dislikes her big boobs because they are logistically inconvient' is not covered any any trope I know of, though. That might not be a bad one to creat.
