I find the "Both men and women categorize partners along these lines" bit really unnecessary and offensive, this is supposed to be about tropes in fiction, adding on an unsourced "Fact is, if you're a whore no one will ever love you IRL" is a bit... gratuitous and well offensive.

I'm reverting this:

  • The above is absolutely not applicable historically. Women in the old days were expected to tolerate their husbands' infidelities without comment or question. A woman didn't even have the right to refuse her husband sex if he came home with a lethal sexually transmitted disease like syphilis. On the other hand, it was perfectly within a husband's rights to demand absolute fidelity from his wife and to punish her infidelity any way he wanted, even with death. He didn't even have to prove that she was unfaithful - rumour was good enough.

Just because the punishments for sleeping around were different, doesn't mean that people didn't want to sleep around or keep their partners from doing so. What do you think those punishments were for? (See All Women Are Lustful.)

Mr Death, let's hope that there was reasonable sarcasm, not trolling on the part of Fay Fay.

His/her/its initial reply was a complete non sequitur. There was nothing to be sarcastic about. It's just some dipshit being a dipshit, and we don't need that around here.

Might want to fix your entry on Know the Staff, chum.

Sorry, I forgot to modify it. FE's still working on the page locking tool.

I think Fay Fay was sarcastically naming tropes that were once strongly upheld in real life. I.e., said non sequitors were the cited reasons for punishments for infidelity in the past. Not necessarily voicing his own opinions.

edit: ...Said the troper THREE YEARS LATER.
