Yet another user
had it ever occurred to you that if several different people treat your edits in a similar fashion the problem might be on your end?

I suggest the trait be written
i suggest you write how new definition should look like exactly, you shouldn't expect mods to do that for you. i already have an objection though: if you remove sidelocks from intrinsic characteristics of hime cut then what would be its difference from any other long straight haircut? blunt bangs alone are not enough in my opinion.Last modified on 2018-08-07 at 04:52

As far as I could tell from information and pictures, the style of the hime cut *requires* the sidehair. If you just wrap the sidelocks into your back or cut them off, you have yourself a "unique" long straightened hairstyle with your ears showing whole. Just only responding to your case.

I have more details about the hime cut: The hime cut is naturally long and straightened all the way that all the locks fall perfectly straight. This applies to the back, the sides, and the front. The length of each side is questionable, though. But the sidehair would primarily obscure the ears. So they should be at least be long enough to cover them naturally. Finally, the front fringe. It seems they are primarily medium length above the eyes and covering the eyebrows. Their fringe is precisely cut across so the bang lengths are horizontally equal. That's the general structure of the hime cut. As long the hair is *all straightened* with long hair, ear-covering, and equally cut fringes, that's the whole archetype of the hime cut.

Now, what about the case with the variations of the hime cut? Generally the length of the Sidehair is irrelevant because the formerly explained must primarily apply to qualify the hairstyle as a hime cut (refer to the picture examples in the previous page). But I wonder: What could be a hime cut, in different styles, while maintaining that signature look? I found one with pigtails and one with a bob cut. Checked carefully on these variety of styles and they have something in common: The equally cut fringes. Admittedly, it can be difficult to distinguish these unique styles, but the signature style is still there: Straight hair and equal fringe cuts (blunt bangs).

I'm only explaining how hime cut should be interpreted as for better reading accessibility once it's been reviewed. Just like I was explaining again now.

Also, perhaps I should not have referred to other users back there, but the attitude is still fresh in our minds. You and I.Last modified on 2018-08-07 at 06:06

In spirit of the change regarding "trap" game tags, I suggest that Trap be changed to "Otokonoko". There are already other character traits in romaji (such as the eye shape tags), so I don't believe it is too out of place. It's also in general more accurate to the applied usage given the nuance of otokonoko vs trap.

Alternatively "effeminate" if keeping it in English is a priority.Last modified on 2018-08-12 at 01:30

Effeminate is already a personality trait.

#1378 The reason that the eye shape traits are in romaji is because there isn't a proper term for them in English.

Honestly, I don't see why "trap" needs to be separate from "cross-dressing". I think that would be more constructive and compact, rather than having two traits which have so much overlap.

Otokonoko mainly means "boy" and is only a slang for a "trap". It's meaningless to use the romanization because you lack kanji distinction between the two.

Hear hear. After changing the tags I looked at the traits and thought: "Why the fuck do we have separate trap and reverse-tarp traits to the cross-dressing trait"? It's completely redundant. I'm even inclined to delete those two and only leave cross-dressing.

^ Trap and Reverse-trap are primarily about character's physical characteristics, e.g. facial features, body type, etc. Trait descriptions state that dressing and acting like opposite sex is optional.Last modified on 2018-08-12 at 12:20

Trap and Reverse-trap could be renamed Feminine Appearance and Masculine Appearance. EDIT: There's a lot of overlap with Androgynous, though.Last modified on 2018-08-12 at 18:16
