This can be problematic and harmful to trans communities as many of the narratives in those stories purposely present queer or gender nonconforming characters as sexual deviants with predatory behaviors. This is most common in Japanese manga. The word has since been reclaimed in some circles by trans people, who now proudly identify with the term. The trans community has, on a number of occasions, thrown non-binary, generqueer, agender, androgynous, and gender nonconforming people under the bus for whatever bits of social favor they can get. Personally, I find this inexcusable and have no intentions on scapegoating other queers, or kinky peeps, for my own sake, and I certainly have no intention on trying to live to the expectations of the cis or other binary trans folk in order to be accepted. Many trans women are often physically assaulted or even murdered by cis men who, after having sex with them, feel ashamed [due to internalized queerphobia] and lash out with misplaced aggression.
