It means you won't be seeing any men in the manga/anime

"Missing" implies that there is supposed to be something there, but it is gone. "No dudes" would be a better and less confusing tag.

Do we really need to overthink tags ? XD

this one is clear enough as long as you remember basic biology class.

I see this has been renamed, but how is that an error ? XD

I preferred the old name, wah.

I do plan to continue using the term in my daily life, however.

Yes, but can we honestly use it in light of this:

Re-read that one a couple of times and then suggest it again.

That pic makes it sound like having autism is bad, but it isn't always. People with high-functioning autism (Asperger's) are much more likely to develop genius-level intelligence than neurotypical people are. I'm living proof of that, frankly. I was correctly pronouncing huge words like "veterinarian" by age one and a half, I was reading by three, and I tested at above college level in both reading and math by age ten.

I'm not saying having autism is a good thing, but it's certainly not always a bad thing.

Part of normal human variation, in many cases a fairly neutral thing. Trouble is, we live in a society that has a hard time coping with and accepting such variation.

That is exactly where I took it from. It does it job well though. Also as if Dynasty wasn't full of hentai tags already ;x

Or full of hentai doujins/mangas as well, for that matter. :"

That refusal to accept is the reason I dislike society as a whole, as well as the reason I dislike meeting new people most of the time. Their general refusal to accept any nonconformity is transcended only by their complete ignorance of anything outside their personal bubble of reality.

Which works until you realize that most of the stuff tagged with it isn't porn at all. Yuru Yuri, New Game, and so forth.

Wrong, it still works perfectly well even after realizing it, because unlike Dynasty, hentai sites that use Female Only uses it in everything that doesn't have any male charater, including pretty much all doujins we have here that are not hentai, it doesn't matter if it's hentai or not, if it don't have any male character they will be tagged with that, there's literally no reason to not use it because Female Only =/=porn.

Correction, it feels like it's used mostly, if not only, for "long" running mangas. One shots and doujins that are just one or a few chapters usually don't bother with that tag, else it would be far more spread out.

Probably because those being mostly yuri, sfw or nsfw, it's kind of a given that male characters are absent of those, or of little relevance.

It is used only for a few mangas, only 7 to be more specific, no one shot or doujin uses it, some of the series are not even really long, Alice Quartet, The Miko's Words and the Witch's Incantations and Two and Two doesn't even have 10 chapters, Zoushoku Shoujo Plana-chan have 21 chapters, nowadays the tag is basically synonymous for New Game, Yuru Yuri - Oomuro-ke and Yuru Yuri that have 27, 36 and over 100 chapters respectively.

For those who think that Female Only is only for porn, this is their exact words at Ehwiki:

All sexual, fetishized, or intimate interactions in the gallery are strictly between females. Requires at least two females interacting.

So no, the tag doesn't mean porn, it means exactly what the name says and is used in anything that deserves it, not only mangas and doujins.

404: Men Not Found kind of implies that not having a male character is a error or mistake from the mangaka, if we're going to continue to have this tag, that at the moment is kind of useless for being used in only 7 mangas, at least it should have a proper name that is easy to understand and won't make any confusion and Female Only is pretty much the perfect name for it, really, pretty much all doujins and one shot deserve the tag and there's probably a few more manga that deserve it too, some manga do have male characters but in a lot of them they're just a side character that doesn't get in the way of the romance at all, so rather than a tag for when it doesn't have any male character, it would be more practical a tag for the series that have any kind of male character or at least for those that they are important or get in the way of the romance.

tl;dr, Female Only is the perfect name for it and won't make any misunderstanding, so there's no reason to not use it.

Cripes, did you take your jerk pills today, Thiaguinho-sama? You seem to be having fun being nasty over something nobody said. I didn't say Female Only solely meant porn. Nor did anyone else. So calm the hell down. Although your overreaction to the conversation about it seems a good enough reason to oppose it. It's not amusing either, which is the advantage of the current tag or Missing Y Chromosome.

As to usage, Chantelune's observation seems pretty accurate, and I'd go further to say it likely should be reserved for series with decent sized casts that are entirely female. Which would apply really well to New Game and Yuri Yuri, which are all-girl ensemble stories which make it very clear there aren't and won't be any boys involved.
