Don't have a stake in this bc despite being a shameless weeb I've never been a fan of the ecchi fixations of animemes. But like... even if these people think the anime trope of the "trap" is problematic, what good does banning the word do...? It's not going to erase trap characters in anime or change trans representation in anime in any way... It's just preventing people from talking about it

To be safe, they'd better just ban ALL words...

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.”

The Sundering of the Elves, but if Tolkien was a weeb

Weebs fighting each other lol

By the way, in another weeb community, r/yuri (basically lesbian soft porn), people are outraged because now transgender porn can be posted too, in the name of lesbianism.

It looks like everyone sees that the king is naked, but only lesbians can't say that.

"The emperor's new clothes" has been on my mind a lot lately with regard to trans rights activism. That, and the frog in the boiling water.

r/traaaaa joined and is rallying in favour of the ban. And apparently the animemes mod who banned it is trans (surprise) and posts on traaaa. That's so ironic. Most troons are weebs and trap obsession is entry level AGP.

I don't know what 'trap' means in this context and I'm not sure it's a rabbit hole I want to go down
