I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS

But in this case, I'd rather not know the answer. Better to just let the issue die, I think (as I write out this comment that will bump the thread)

But yeah, Peace

Have something peaceful to be on your way

It was harassment and it's partially that staff will not get rid of the fact that you can't ignore the general discussion forum because it's on the front page at all times

It's sad that you feel this way. I haven't seen this amlej0 comment; so, I have no idea on what wording, meaning, or tone he used or what his intentions were. That said, a lot of anime fans tend to use the term "trap" to describe an anime boy who looks like and/or dresses up as a girl. They generally don't mean anything negative about it, and are simply using the term because it's shorter/easier to say and type than "crossdressing boy" or "girly-looking boy". Like-wise, they also tend to use the term "reverse-trap" to describe an anime girl who looks like/dresses as a boy. Again, there is usually no harm intended and both "trap" and "reverse-trap" are fairly common terms used in the anime community.

On the other hand, I have heard real-life stories of people accusing transgender people of trying to deceive/"trap" them and using that as an excuse to kill them; so, I can understand why the usage of the term "trap" may make you uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the term "trap" is fairly common throughout the anime fandom (and not just this site) so you will probably see it on almost any anime site you will go to. However, as I have said, most anime fans mean nothing negative when they say it. Heck, even I have occasionally used the term "trap" (but only towards anime characters) and I'm a pro-LGBT person.

I'm curious as to what this amlej0 person said. Do you have a link to this comment of his? I'm curious if he was talking about real people or if he was only talking about anime characters. If he was talking about real people being traps, then I can understand your concern, but if he was talking about anime characters then I think you may be over reacting. In any case, if you still feel uncomfortable about the usage of the term "trap", maybe you should think about an alterative term that doesn't have the negative connotations and spread it throughout the net. If you are lucky, maybe it will catch on and the term "trap" (at least for anime characters) will eventually phase out. Maybe.

Oh great another transphobic post
Also THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO SEXES

Boys have penises and girls have vaginas. If there are more than two genders, then what genitalia are associated with these other genders? I'll wait.

Does it matter also I'm a girl who kept her penis
And because we insist on only 2 genders this happens


It does matter Kerfka

The dick only makes it better.
