1. It seems that the trope Hot Mom
is so prone to misuse that the Hot Mom
page has been locked.
2. The definition of Hot Mom
have any in-universe requirement, although the page says to list only in-universe examples.
3. Attractiveness tropes are inherently subjective. You may find Actress X to be a Hot Mom
; I may not.
4. There is
a trope that covers this when it is an in-universe story element: Stacy's Mom
. Stacy's Mom
and Hot Mom
are, in fact, redundant.
5. Hot Mom
is usually listed on work pages as examples that boil down to "this actress, who plays a mom, is hot". This isn't actually misuse since, as the trope is written, there is no in-universe requirement. Such examples aren't tropeworthy, and usually boil down to little more than examples of how actresses are more attractive than regular people.
Hot Mom, as a separate trope, should be deleted. Hot Dad
, its brother trope, should also be deleted. Both tropes should be made redirects to Stacy's Mom
. All examples that are not in-universe
examples (such as American Pie
and its MILF, or Superbad
and how the one kid lusts after the other kid's mom) should be deleted.
Hot Mom's definition should be revised to a definition that is clearly in-universe (that is, the definition for Stacy's Mom
). Stacy's Mom
would redirect to Hot Mom. Hot Dad
would either redirect to Hot Mom
or exist as a separate trope for dads with essentially the same definition.
(BTW, why is Hot Mom
coming up as red-linked when it definitely still exists?)
