Clarifying on_shoulders vs shoulder_carry vs sitting_on_shoulder

Posted under Tags

For cases like post #4982856.

The shoulder carry wiki states that the tag is only for people, but the on shoulder wiki also states that it can be used for characters or creatures sitting on another's shoulders.

We can either imply on shoulder to shoulder carry or make on shoulder only for creatures.
I wanted to create some utility aliases for these tags but I thought a discussion should come first.

There's also confusion between sitting on shoulder and shoulder carry. A potential solution for this is to name the latter sitting on shoulders.

Neither option works very well. Shoulder_carry is a specific pose in which the sitting person is straddling the other person's neck, with legs resting upon both their shoulders. It doesn't apply to posts where someone is sitting on only one shoulder, like post #2286053 or post #3037460. Restricting on_shoulder to nonhumans would leave us without a tag for posts like that.

Sitting on shoulder is the tag for sitting on only one shoulder though. This is why I mentioned it last.

Currently we have 4 tags that have to do with shoulders, and they're a mess because each one is named differently from the other with no aliases to connect them.
