Oh I see, so in Return of the Jedi, thatís what Admiral Akbar meant.
He was talking about the Emperor, who was in the Dead Star ( mark II ) at the time. laugh
( his outfit looked like a dress to me )

Everytime I watch anime with a trap I always say that line.

So, why wouldn't they simply be called "Traps" either way (M-F or F-M)? To me, "Reverse Traps" would mean that the characters in question turned out to be the sexes they outwardly appeared as, even though other characters (and/or the audience) thought they were traps (presumably, because of misinformation or disinformation).

For example, in Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, we never really know whether Peppo is male or female. All we have is the word of the unreliable Count.

Good point Stefanie. We could come up with our own name for said terminology...

Well, I guess the answer to that question is probably something like: "because most anime is predominantly aimed at males, there's some gender discrimination w.r.t. naming things"...

Likewise there's also "harem", which is "boy surrounded by girls" and "reverse-harem", which is "girl surrounded by boys"... :-|

Nope. That would be called Yaoi, hun wink

Although in Oresama Teacher, Yui (male) tells Mafuyu (female) that he won't become a part of her harem. So maybe the whole "reverse harem" idea is purely an American thing?
