You learn something new every day. I wondered if it was a sort of snarky joke for the page header photo to be of someone who is clearly a bloke in full drag. (I mean. That's a man. Come on).

then I googled on the name "Cyd Charisse" to discover it is in fact a she - an old-time actress. Just not an awfully flattering photo.

Incidentally, is it me or is there an awful lot of drooling, slathering and general "Phwooar!" going in in the entries? not so much a trope as a list of Legs This Troper Finds Sexy And This Is Why?

Okay, we applied this trope to Laura Marano of Austin & Ally, but her sister Vanessa is older and taller, and doesn't have such bad legs herself. Is there any reason not to add it to Switched at Birth?

No, because I do not see what Switched at Birth has to do with this.

She doesn't have legs.

How about "stalk people", mermaids, early South Park and first season Princess Bubblegum. You know characters in which the feet or legs are never drawn?

you want Lost and Found to find those

It's the reverse of this trope, so will need a mention here.

And that is Snake People.

Just as we have the other two, we have this. They all stay or they all go. I'm also cottoning onto the fact that we have Costuming Tropes and guess what attributes they are meant to accentuate?

They all should go. None of them are tropes and are just excuse pages for people to list their favorite characters.

Just one person saying "they're not tropes" isn't enough; state the reasoning behind your case so it can be examined thoroughly, or forever hold your peace. As has been said many times on this site, "Don't like, don't read."

While I was in favor of having these at first, I no longer am. These tropes are actually the authors showing instead of telling, generic cuteness, sometimes author appeal, and just plain reflecting reality. No symbolic meaning, no subtext. For me, a good sign that a trope was well established was when the person doing the description could say "In real life (...), but in media (...)". I don't think that can be done with these entries (and not just these three, I mean a multitude of others inside this wiki are not actually tropes, like for example, Flipping the Bird).

If this is going to be kept, I think we need to do some cleaning up re: creepiness in the examples and description. EDIT: Have gone through the examples and trimmed them in an attempt to fit the guidelines in this thread. If there's anything I've missed feel free to handle it - I was a little unsure what to do with some of the examples (particularly the Psylocke one) that are from works I'm unfamiliar with.

Being sexy isn't a trope - or this entire wiki would be fetish fuel. Baby Got Back went.

It's a real shame but I think a lot of these 'sexy' 'tropes' should either be removed, or condensed.
