I was watching SAOII when I saw a statement about most ppl not associating "traps" with being transgender.
Well I am one of those who would like to know...what trap?
If it's something sexual please just say that and it will be enough info for me.
Thanks

Boys that look like girls. Reverse-traps being girls that look like boys. Just another character type, usually played up for comedic effect. The "trap" is that one does not realize they are of the opposite sex.

A guy/girl that looks like the opposite gender but is still a guy/girl. If you've watched Baka and Test, Hideyoshi is a good example in that he is an identical twin and has a sister so he looks like his sister.

Basically a guy that dresses as a girl or the miracles of the universe.

Its essentially intentional Cross dressing for the purpose of tricking others(usually the audience) into assigning the wrong gender

As a joke, its pretty intentional. The character my only look female, or perhaps go so far as to wear female clothes. Other characters might unintentionally assume he is Female even of he himself doesn't want this. They often go so far as have female Voice actors voicing them, and perhaps Wear clothes that are most def female.



Its not about transgender, and Japan is rather free about such things regardless.

Its about the trick, the OH IT AINT A GIRL! YOU GOT PUNKED!

It's not always about cross dressing or intentional deception. Hastur from Nyaruko never hides his gender, but he's always getting mistaken for a female. And who could blame them?
