Even that one's awful, because if you don't know the work, the picture does not do anything about portraying the trope. They're both very problematic.

I'm saying that I don't think Light Masculine and Dark Masculine should have ever been launched. Light Feminine and Dark Feminine could be called lady and the slut, both sexually desirable but one is wholesome and one promiscuous. A light masculine character will almost always be seen as a wuss no matter how manly he is, like how in Gone with the Wind most of Ashley's men find his habit of reading literature and discussing philosophy very strange.

Take it to TRS- thought I think there is a trope here. Not all "light" male characters are wusses. Alistair from Dragon Age is a great example.
