- Double Standard / Squick / Unfortunate Implications: An attractive adult woman (the FBI agent) is openly attracted to a prepubescent boy, and kisses him on the lips — in front of cops, no less. The Double Standard is that the movie would have seemed darker had the genders been reversed. Required Unfortunate Implications Cite: Shotacon — a TVtropes page locked against edit and without examples, due to issues with Google Ads.

No double trope entries? Is that a true rule? Is it objective that it's a double standard, in that it would be objectively be considered darker with reversed genders? Or is it objectively true that there's no such double standard? (Should Double Standard be put in the Film page?) I did pose the question of whether the cite is truly necessary on a YMMV page, in the Unfortunate Implications discussion.
