A term that is widely considered derogatory and is used primarily against AMAB trans people. While there are some AMAB trans people who reclaim this word, it is not acceptable for cisgender people to use this term. This term is unfortunately common in online and gamer spaces and has been widely used in transphobic memes.

e.g. Lauryn broke up with her boyfriend when he referred to her as a “trap”.
