They are extremely cute, but they're not exactly girls. In Japanese, they are called 男の娘<i style="font-weight: bold;"> (otokonoko or otoko no musume, literally "male daughter" or "male girl") and are, in fact, men cross-dressing as girls. It's very easy to be misled by these graceful figures, and that's why in the Western world they're usually referred to as "traps". The gap between their frilly clothes and their manly personality will leave you speechless!
Today we collected a series of illustrations portraying otokonoko, or traps. Enjoy!
