Pulled:

  • She always uses the word "eponymous" instead of "titular."

Okay, seriously people. Titular is a word. It is a word with a definition. You can use it.
I'm not sure about this example:

  • She never uses Wikipedia Formatting, because s/he hates Wikipedia and all that it stands for. Alternatively, she loves Wikipedia and realizes that its mission is different from ours.

Two different points are being made here. I added the second one because I was distraught that an article about the ideal troper would take a cheap shot at one of the world's most valuable resources for information just because our mission is completely different. Should I get rid of that second sentence? What would our perfect Purity Sue really say?

Unfortunate Implactions? I wanted to avoid potential sexism. (got rid of them and made it gender-neutral.) I think we might need to do the same for the one in the Darth Wiki.

No, no, please don't. This is a pain in the ass to read. The Other Troper would not stand for it!

Anyway, if this page is sexist, it's obviously intentional considering The Other Troper is an over the top Purity Sue parody. Purity is rarely male in the media. More importantly though, gender-neutralizing the article does not make it read well.

Well she wouldn't like Unfortunate Implications either, ;).
