So the consensual Memetic Sex God isn't allowed, but Memetic Molester is? Double Standard ahoy!

No, it only means that that other page wasn't brought up in TRS yet. Or that it's not so misused as the Sex God one - the Sex God page was cut mainly because of the misuse.

It's a Double Standard regardless that needs to be dealt with.

It's not a Double Standard because that one is specifically a sex double standard. And one can disagree on it being a "double standard" as well, just because these pages have some similarity doesn't mean they should be treated the same.

I think the entire Ahsoka paragraph is out of place. This is a page for Memetic Molesters, not repeat offender victims of same... unless someone wants to start a page for that.

Putting this here in case we need it.

Isn't the Pro Wrestling section basically a subsection of Real Life in a page that says No Real Life Examples?

Unlike actual sports, professional wrestling is heavily scripted; it's more akin to Live-Action TV than Real Life.

Isn't the page quote a bit spoiley?

I don't know, as I've no clue of where it's from or anything. Feel free to swap it with one of the entries on the Quotes tab.

Am I the only person who thinks Woody's face looks really disturbing, not pervy?

It's pervy in the way it's a "don't worry I'm *only* going to shank and then murder you" face.

This quote appears to be a non-example. It's not an overt in-work pervert but an audience reaction. Moving to discussion.

"He's a sex offender. With a record. He did four months at Chino for exposing himself to an eight year-old. When he moved to Hollywood he had to go door-to-door, telling everyone he was a pederast."

There seem to be a lot of examples here of characters who are actually, canonically rapists/molesters. If it's lightly implied in canon and then greatly exaggerated by fanon (like with Adachi from Persona 4), that probably counts, but if, for example, a character is described in canon as being able to "commit sexual harassment by sitting quietly in the next room", I think that's an indicator that there's nothing "memetic" about their molester status.

Anyway, is there any point in my doing some cleanup, or will it all get added back within a few days anyhow?

It looks like there are three categories of characters appearing on this page:

(1) Actual canon sex-offenders. Kind of the character version of Rape as Comedy or Rape as Drama.

(2) Characters who are described by the canon as having an extreme proclivity for sexual assault (like Greebo in your example).

(3) Characters whose tendency to commit sexual assault is exaggerated by the fandom.

Of course, (3) is what this page is about. The problem is that I'm sure some characters in (2) and possibly even (1) also fall into (3).

It's probably a good idea to shift characters to the appropriate page, if one exists, before pruning this one. Problem is, I'm not sure that there is an appropriate page for all examples. There are a lot of pages which cover this sort of thing, such as Chivalrous Pervert, Lovable Sex Maniac and Dirty Old Man, but they aren't comprehensive AFAICS. I would suggest that somebody look into creating an overarching "canonical perverts" page and shifting examples there before cleaning this one up (and adding the appropriate links/explanation/etc).

If ever a trope needed troper tales...
