Suppose, for the sake of argument, that traps were Just a species within the genus of women, just as 'tall women"are. This would mean that traps are women, which makes it not gay for a man to love them. However, insofar as traps exist as a distinct species of women, it must be fundamentally gay to love them, for the differentia of a trap is the quality of naving been raised as a boy". If one were to be a lover of tall women to the exclusion of women of other heights, we would say that this person is a lover of 'tallness". Likewise, if one were to love trap-women, to the exclusion of other women, we would say that this person is a lover of the differentiating quality of traps, which is"having been raised as boys," and hence that this person is straight in some ways, but also gay. For it is the differences between species from which we derive our definitions. So long as the distinction between trap-women and non-trap-women exists, it must be at least a littie gay to love traps. And if t is at least a little bit gay to love traps, then it is certainly gay.
