Rape Tropes
Here's an excellent analysis of recent events on TV Tropes with the removal and restoration of tropes about rape.  Yes, we do need to name tropes that objectify people, and discuss them, and give examples of works that have them.  Are you offended by the mountainous prevalence of such tropes?  You should be; they're all over the mainstream media.  So go make something else.  Go buy something else.  Discussions like this are part of what lets a society realize something is badly out of balance and needs fixing.
