The "mipples" tag and its derivatives

So, as I was adding tags to one picture I noticed something: it didn’t lack "nipples" tag but instead had "mipples" tag and even "mipple piercing". So I thought what this must be a mistake, a typo made in hurry; after all n and m keys are right next to each other on qwerty keyboards and they look pretty similar so at a quick glance one could not notice what they made a mistake. And so, being a good autist about tags what I am I went to fix them on that image and others.

I fixed every image what had "mipple piercing", which were 15 when I begin, and went to just ones with "mipples", which numbered around 60. But as I was fixing them I looked at the tagging history of one of them and noticed something curious. The picture originally actually had "nipples" tag but a user deleted it and in it place put "mipples". And it was not one time thing either. And as I looked into it I noticed the other thing: all pictures like that were solo male. So I might think what at least one user went and replaced the tag when they seen a picture with male in them showing nipples, for what I think is filtering purposes (the logic being, I feel, is "male" + "nipples" = "mipples").

Given this I think some of mods should weight in to put a final verdict to the tag. Personally I think it’s redundant, as you can easily just add complex filter what spoilers pictures tagged "nipples" if they are solo male, plus deleting the "nipples" tag from such images is obviously wrong as they do in fact contain nipples, and people who are not averse to male nipples will miss them while searching for, well, nipples, especially male ones. So, even if the tag will be allowed I think it should be there alongside actual "nipples" tag.

Also, if the tag is to be deemed unnecessary there might be a benefit in aliasing "mipples" and "mipple piercing" into "nipples" and "nipple piercing" respectively anyway, since the cases when people just make a typo are less than zero.

Here’s link to both tags, if needed:

Panic! At The Tag Change
I think it should just be aliased into nipples so it stops getting added as it is entirely pointless to have as other tags can serve the same purpose.

Male nipples have different societal taboos than female nipples, not to mention that’s probably a different fetish all together when you consider how many artists just don’t draw nipples on shirtless men. It would be a lot more fallible trying to find pictures of men with nipples by paring "male, nipples" without a dedicated tag.

k?

That doesn’t make them not nipples anymore, at the very LEAST the nipples tag should NOT be removed when that one gets added. Even still, it’s barely tagged to begin with and it’s still far easier to find images with male nipples with existing tags. Yes it’s not infallible but it’s not exactly fair to treat them differently and fuck with tags because of a flimsy reasoning.

No disagreement from me on that point.

I was more concerned about arguing the tag’s usefulness and right to exist. Past that, I can’t see the harm in using them together.

Oof, well I deleted it but its history not pruned and I am pretty sure LB or any mod can easily restore them if the tag is deemed worthy anyway.

That recent tag crop up made me wonder why it should completely replace nipples. And it bugged me a bit.
Don’t get me wrong, I understood what it was supposed to mean and why it was being done, but it would be plain incorrect tagging to remove the nipples tag from it.

If it does exist, it should still imply nipples.

I don’t think there’s much point to it existing though.
