the overlap
Consider how often we see this outside the fictional page—a woman being demeaned as shrewish or ugly with the implication that she’s really a crossdresser or a drag queen.

Using gender variance to communicate wrongness is an old trick. When a character is depicted this way, the plausible deniability kicks in with the argument that it can’t be transphobic if the character isn’t actually trans. But stigmatized gender signals invariably ripple back to transphobia, regardless of the intent. And there are very few people who won’t ultimately be hurt.
