The following was removed.

  • Double Standard: For the most part, All Men Are Perveruts and All Women Are Prudes is in full effect. Several unnamed male NP Cs can be casually heard trying to score with a large number of women (in particular courtesans and prostitutes), and male criminals/bandits are commonly serial rapists (female criminals and bandits are extremely rare exceptions). Several sidequests involve a Woman Scorned who is angry that another woman wedded a man she loved in her stead. On several occasions, the death of her beloved led a woman to either commit suicide to be with him or vow to be celibate for the rest of her life out of loyalty. Dandelion gets an entire sidequest about women who are utterly smitten with him, but who know next to nothing about each other (and even if they DO know, are still loyal and willing to take him back).

The entry in question isn't about men being "perverted and lustful". The point is that, even by admission of several characters, male bandits, soldiers and criminals are overt rapists. Female bandits are already extremely rare but do not behave the same way.

The editor also missed the point about jealousy: most quests treat a man's infidelity as a moment of weakness, with women only getting angry when the man prefers the other woman.

In the most technical of senses, Double Standard is just a list of tropes exhibiting double standards; it doesn't have examples itself of it occurring in works. You'd need to pick a particular trope on that page and go from there.

Why was the Good Bad Bugs entry removed? Do the priestesses and guards eventually stop giving you shit over the events of "Nameless", because I'm not that far yet.

The Ciri Lives Endings are very bittersweet. Either Ciri takes on the task of trying to improves things at the cost of her own personal happiness, or she finds joy on the road, but leaves the problems of the world to fester.

In the "Burn the Witch" entry, they bring up King Radovid supporting anti-witch pogroms. Does this occur in games where Triss is rescued from Witcher 2?

Edit: Yes, yes it does.
