The addition of non-japanese examples to this page warms my heart, late as it may be.

I am going to remove the disclaimer regarding eastern asia, as it is inappropriate, and basically counterproductive to the underlying theme of example sections.

Same with Tsurime Eyes, which actually already has a section for Western Animation.

"This is an east asian media trope only." What? Do you mean to tell me that western works can't draw droopy eyes for the sake of submissive characterization? Where's the trope for that?

I agree. I hate to be the dipstick who brings ponies into everything, but surely Fluttershy qualifies as having tareme?

That's a legitimate, obvious, and seemingly textbook example in a non-asian work. It seems completely and utterly arbitrary to exclude non-japanese works and characters from this list. If there are no western examples, then the disclaimer is pointless, as there are none to add. If there are western examples, it hardly makes sense to exclude them from addition to this easily identifiable and universally understood trope.

I don't know how to start a page action or anything, and I'm not entirely sure what this situation warrants. I'm not sure if I can just remove the disclaimer, or if some more bureaucratic footwork is necessary.

Per this TRS thread, there's a YKTTW called Personaliteye, which will be a catch-all for non-Asian tareme/tsurime and other eye shapes used to indicate character. Fluttershy can go in there.
