Undo alias white_socks -> white_legwear

Posted under General

white_socks is a part of white_legwear and not the whole of it. We lose particularity of meaning with this alias it is like aliasing fellatio to oral. Aliases are for when two tags equal each other but one's text is preferable, such as butt -> ass and boobs -> breasts.

Aliased tags are also used when it is simply unnecessary to make a separate tag for something. You are never going to wear both socks and thigh highs, nor are you going to wear a legging with knee highs. It would be a pain to remove this alias and retag every image with socks, and it is also unnecessary since searching for "purple_thighhighs" would give you the about the same results as searching for "purple_legwear" and "thighhighs".
