I don’t watch alot of anime so pardon my ignorance but I am genuinely curious. Are “traps” in animr generally considered transphobic? I kind of feel like they are (hence the term traps) but I don’t really know how the community feels about these types of characters and tropes. People have said some really hurtful things to me (oh you’re just a guy in a dress etc) so when I see some of my friends posting online and talking about these kind of things, it just reminds me of all that anger amd resentment a lot of cisgender people have towards trans and other gender non-conforming folks.
So am i way off base here? If someone who is much more experienced with anime culture and iI guess Japanese culture in general could explain some of this stuff to me, it would be really helpful. I just see alot of it and kind of feel upset about it
