swimsuit tag implications

Posted under Tags

The bulk update request #14322 has been rejected.

create implication male_swimwear -> swimsuit
create implication old_school_swimsuit -> one-piece_swimsuit
create implication new_school_swimsuit -> one-piece_swimsuit
create implication school_swimsuit -> one-piece_swimsuit
create implication slingshot_swimsuit -> one-piece_swimsuit

Changing a male_swimwear implication to use the swimsuit tag instead of the deprecated swimwear tag.

Add missing implications for several subtypes of the one-piece_swimsuit.

The folks over at Gelbooru suggested I bring these up here, ref: https://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=forum&s=view&id=1706&pid=8930

I also tried adding an update request to delete the male_swimwear -> swimwear implication, but got the error "error: Can't remove implication male_swimwear -> swimwear (implication doesn't exist)" even though this implication shows up in the implication list.

Because we have no standalone "swimwear" tag.

Male swimwear was separated from swimsuit for some reason, I cant find the topic right now though. There are (unfortunately) some two-piece old school swimsuits.

Implying new school swimsuit and slingshot swimsuit to one-piece swimsuit could have merit. Someone still needs to clean out the bikini tags from a lot of old slingshot swimsuits btw.

The male_swimwear -> swimwear implication entry references topic #12742 . It looks like there was a bit of a debate back then on the definition of swimsuit vs swimwear, and it seems like the final definition of swimsuit was "special clothing that women and girls wear for swimming", and that swimwear was more of an umbrella term that included male and female apparel.

Going by the wiki definition of old_school_swimsuit, those two-piece ones wouldn't qualify, and it might be better to tag them as a nontraditional_school_swimsuit.

That said, it might make more sense to modify the BUR to remove the implication for school_swimsuit -> one-piece_school_swimsuit.

male swimwear and swimsuit are separate on purpose: swimsuit is effectively "female swimwear" for danbooru.
In theory if we wanted to merge them we'd have to make an umbrella swimwear tag, but it'd just end up being 99% female swimsuits.

slingshot swimsuit is kind of a mess because people use it for sling bikini top and other random stuff, it needs a heavy cleanup, and school swimsuits have the issue of nontraditional_school_swimsuit. Each of these deserves its own discussion thread.
