Anyone else annoyed there are no sexual harassment tropes on the sexual harassment index? If you are, would you agree to changing the name of this index to something more accurate?

This line was recently added to the description. I pulled it because it sounded rather controversial. Opinions?

All the tropes are back following the ban after complaining, but several pages are locked just for potential tropers to know ahead.

So, the infamous trigger warning. I'm of the opinion that it's unnecessary, since anyone who can't figure out from the page title that there will be "descriptions of sexual abuse and related issues" in the tropes on this index, really shouldn't be on the internet.

The consensus in Wiki Talk is that these warnings are unnecessary. I'm removing it.

I didn't think it was particularly necessary, either. (And definitely not on the Rape Tropes index -_-)

However, I did feel there should be a consensus for it, at least. And an excuse beyond "we'll need to put one up on every single page because anything, even a pancake, could set people off!" would have been a good idea to put up- at the very least, to prevent others reverting it in-future.

Which, now I think about it, probably was stupid- I should have taken it straight here.

Sorry. I will do this in future.

Given the way the Wiki Talk thread is going, The Staff is working on a draft of a policy for when warnings are not allowed, are allowed, and are required. When we finish, I or one of the other staff members will post the draft in the Wiki Talk thread for comments.

So, Abduction Is Love is generally the "mwahaha, I'll kidnap the princess and force her to marry me" trope, right? Is there a reason it's not listed here? It might be used as "the G-rated version" of Rape Is Love sometimes, but there's still at least an implicit threat of rape in most forced marriage scenarios.

By its very nature, rape displays a "total contempt for the personal integrity and autonomy" of the victim; 'short of homicide, [it is] the "ultimate violation of self.'"

By its very nature, rape displays a "total contempt for the personal integrity and autonomy" of the victim; 'short of homicide, [it is] the "ultimate violation of self.'"
Because the quote explicitly excludes death (that is, homicide) as the only thing that's more of a violation of self than rape. Ergo, it is (according to a quote) not a Fate Worse than Death, but rather a Fate Exceeded In Badness Only by Death. I'm not trying to start a big discussion over the afterlife's quality of existence or if it exists at all and the aftereffects of rape, just trying to keep the theme of the reproduced quote in line with the quote itself.

If anyone objects to recursion in Index description Pot Holes, that's part of why this is on this page. I just thought that that trope was more appropriate. Not perfect, but better than anything else, though I'm not going to bother arguing whether or not it is better than no Pot Hole at all.

No contention here; I actually think it is the perfect Pot Hole.

Why, oh why does everyone seem to assume Rape is "heavily implied" just because a character was unconscious for a period of time? I just removed an entry from Rape Is Okay When Its Female On Male that said Sherlock Holmes "heavily implied" that Adler raped him when she drugged him. What happens is she knocks him out with drugged wine, kisses him as he's falling asleep, and he wakes up tied to the bed. Nothing in the film acts like he's been raped, it would be completely out of character for Adler, and such a thing would be entirely out of place in the movie anyway.

Same thing with a What Do You Mean, It's for Kids? entry for Twilight Princess I got rid of a few months ago, where it said it was "heavily implied" that Ilia was gangraped by Bulbins after her kidnapping. Looking at the script and youtube videos of the scene which was given as "evidence" shows absolutely nothing that even comes close to remotely implying that rape happened.

It's just...good God, why the fuck do people see rape everywhere?

OK, that last one made me laugh. What sort of whacked out thought process would lead someone to get that impression from the game...

I think that the title of this page needs a pun to lighten the mood.

Or, not. And please don't quote that George Carlin "joke" about Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd as a justification.
