"Trap" is a slur against trans women

Doesn't change the fact it's nonsense, though ("reflects a mindset that literally gets trans women killed"). It's the same thing they use when it comes to other things, included race, gender, etc. For instance, Heathers remake?

"Heathers, based on the teaser, looks like it’s going to be about taking people who have a hard time surviving school in the real world, and then using them to make the argument that, if they were to have any power, they must be ... killed?

"That’s not subversive, nor is it dark. It’s borderline irresponsible, when people from the marginalized communities represented in the trailer often live in literal fear for their physical safety at school in real life."


Essentially; a girl says a man tried to cut her hijab with scissors. She's a victim, and so are all other muslims. Turns out, she lied. And "The Girl Who Lied About Hijab Attack Deserves An Apology". Following that: "Muslims fear backlash over hijab hoax", in other words, they're still made into victims.
