Trap is too commonly used to be seen as offensive. It's like if someone is gay. The term "gay" is too common to be seen as offensive when used to refer to actual gays.
And just because someone crossdresses or drags, that doesn't make them a trap. Transsexuals and transgenders aren't necessarily traps.
Traps are individuals who are both transgender AND transvestite who typically refuse to admit that their gender and sex don't match. This is meant to reinforce their own and others' perception of them, making people generally see them as having sexual natures related to their gender. For example, certain body parts will be referred to differently (chest called breasts, for example). This is why they're called traps.
The guys in that ad ARE traps, because the ad specifically wants you to think of them as both women and females, regardless of specifications.
In a similar way, calling gays homosexual is actually incorrect - since gay refers to romantic orientation
while homosexual refers to sexual orientation
