Crossdressing and Otoko No Ko

Posted under Tags

I do think we should tag both together. The crossdressing tag has a lot of other uses than just for otoko no kos, for example girls crossdressing or anything that's not a otoko no ko.
It feels like we're trying to enforce another rule, that's just ignored by the majority of users, because it fells weird to not tag crossdressing for a person crossdressing.

I do agree that crossdressing and otoko no ko should be tagged together, but shouldn't your example have a tag of it's own? Similar to how we dealt with topless/topless male and other gendered tags. There probably are artworks where a girl is crossdressing which don't appear in crossdressing -otoko_no_ko.

There's lots of things in otoko_no_ko -crossdressing that should be tagged crossdressing, though, so there could be more overlap than current tag counts suggest. Even so, crossdressing is common enough outside of otoko no ko that it's hardly fair to call it useless.

Since people hate having to subtract tags from their searches so much, I guess a reverse crossdressing tag wouldn't hurt, though I hate that it would probably actually end up being called female crossdressing or something.
