I can live with this rule, but I want to know when we are going to ban other offensive terms like Idiot Savant and Bitch. I guess women and those with developmental disorders are fair game here.

I only use the cute huggable little girl definition myself. [up] At least we don't use the 'r' word!

^ x5 "...it was really hard to rename that trope."

It was hard to come up with a different name. Getting rid of the name Token Loli was easy.

I don't know. It's hard to have a short name that has all the cute little girl connotation without people shoehorning every child character ever in it.

What Catbert said. Bitch, etc, need to be renamed. They're far more offensive than loli, and also in their meaning.

Anyone outside the anime fandom sees this word and is reminded of Lolita and its theme.

The anime fandom needs to take a good hard look at itself and why it is so keen to be seen that way.

However, we do not wish to perpetuate that association on this site and thus we do not permit that word to be used.

Discussion over.

Simply David suspended for pushing it, right after being asked not to.
