Topic: Tag alias: groping_self -> self_grope

Posted under General

I do agree this alias should happen, although I would prefer the reverse. Groping self just sounds better imo.

self_grope matches the naming standard: *_grab, self_bite, etc.

But what is the purpose of these tags? Grope is rather vague, it'd be better to use more descriptive tags. And a lot of things that might fall under 'self grope' already have existing tags, so I'm not sure what niche these fill.

Same as grope but for the self, I'd assume.

Then that'd include most of masturbation, except for sex toy use. Manually 'groping' self also loses lot of the nuance of what's generally considered groping.

Not to mention that the grope tag is pretty problematic in the first place, considering that most of the *_grope tags have been aliased to *_grab, but only crotch_grab is implicated to grope.

Updated

I was going to suggest that maybe grope could be retooled as a catch-all for the various grab tags, but grabbing already exists as its own tag (...apparently, not like anything implicates it).
