I just...I don't even have words for how angry this makes me.

This pisses me off on so many levels. The mandate of TV Tropes is to catalog examples of elements of plot, story, and rhetoric used in storytelling and media. By playing it "safe" (and choosing the cash from Google ads over its own content) TV Tropes is its failing at its own purpose, and undermining its integrity as an archive. If a trope exists, it belongs there. They shouldn't get to pick and choose.

Censorship and cultural insensitivity continue with the deletion of all references to rape on the TV Tropes website. Do they think that it will go away if you don't talk about it?

TV Tropes claims they did it so as not to encourage rape. I am doubtful of this explanation.
