Petting Girls

Posted under General

pool #5745 has been brought up multiple times in the Pointless Pools thread, without action or response.

It is a completely taggable concept. It should be converted into a petting_girls tag that implicates petting.
And then it should be deleted, because the overwhelming majority of petting images are of girls.
In reality, it would be more useful to create a petting_animal tag or even a petting_boys tag (although I don't support that one).
Similarily, we do not use a female tag because most images are of girls, but we do use a male tag.

I've previously opposed this decision. I'll change my mind and support it, conditionally on the condition that we create a hands from offscreen tag to categorize images with hands that do not have a body present, like post #446012.

I also don't think any new tags like petting_animal or petting_boys are necessary, they seem like a simple petting + animal/male/*boy tag search.

I disagree with removing that tag, since I'd have more difficulty finding pictures of girls/boys/animals being pet. If anything, we should also have the petting cat, petting dog, and petting rabbit tags.

I agree with Toks and Fred1515. We don't need that pool and it can be easily replaced with tags we already have.

We are not removing any present tags. We're disagreeing with making new superfluous tags.

Edit: Although, petting_animal may be useful after all, it would be convenient as a general/catch-all tag for all the different animal types. But this is probably the only new tag I would support, we don't really need petting_girls, petting_boys or separate tags for various animals.

What exactly do you find so difficult about a petting + cat/dog/rabbit tag search that would warrant creating petting_cat, petting_dog, and petting_rabbit tags?

Point withdrawn now. I must have not been thinking straight.

Point also withdrawn because keeping this distinction may turn danbooru into a directory of "character of [insert type of character here] doing [insert action here] to character of [insert type of character here]".
