Alternative Titles: Token Deity

Go To

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.

At issue:

The reason we are renaming this trope is to stop the misconception that this trope is exclusively about a god not being white and/or male.

This trope is about a deity portrayed as a different race or gender than their standard portrayal for example the Abrahamic god as a black woman or the Hindu Goddess Shiva being a white male.

This trope is NOT restricted to the Judeo-Christian God. Names must be able to cover ALL deities from ALL religions.

Divine Race Lift (with Divine Gender Flip as a redirect)

Cons: It's inevitable that this Trope is going to be full of examples of the Judeo-Christian God, and the Bible doesn't say anything about his race.


Affirmative Action Deity

Pros: "Affirmative Action" covers both race/ethnicity and sex/gender, a la Affirmative Action Legacy.

Cons: Still encourages the exact same misuse and under use that was the reason we renamed in the first place as it sounds like a deity chosen to fill a quota. Not a deity that's had a Race Lift or a Gender Lift.
