Is Trap a Slur?
By ImJustThatKinky • 2 weeks ago • 71 comments

Trap. It’s a genre I like, and a genre I frequent. Trap to me is a cute anime boy who looks like a girl. That’s what I believe, and that’s what I still believe. But as I’ve gotten older and been seeing guys actually pull off the trap look, I’m happy to say that traps can even be real. Guys have the ability to look as cute, and sometimes even cuter than girls?! 

Crazy the times we live in.

But did you know, that trap isn’t just used to describe a cute boy that looks like a girl. Oh no my degenerates of society. It’s also used to describe trans people in a hateful way?! Yeah, I know, I can’t believe it either.

Believe it or not, people are saying that trap is a slur, and used to be hateful towards trans. Now I know I’m around forums from time to time, and comment sections, but I know that I haven’t really seen trap being used in a negative way towards trans or anyone really. Trap to me was also just a description, to describe someone. I feel like the people who actually get offended by the word trap, are the kind of people who try to make a problem out of nothing. Those people who want to be the victims so bad.

The word trap was never created out of hate, it was created to describe a type of character in anime, a character that many like by the way. If people want to flip it and turn it to something negative, then that’s on them, but don’t act like this word was built on hate.

Do you think trap is a slur? Do you think people who are offended by the word traps are being too sensitive? Do you like traps? Tell us in the comments below.
