“Cooking with Trannies” Debuts on YouTube

So you’ve always wanted to know all about the ins and outs of gender, sexuality, and vegan cooking. Fine – you’ve never really thought about it. But now you may just have the perfect reason!

In the debut episode of Cooking with Trannies, Chef Alexa helps out a transboy who wants to impress his vegan date with some homecooking.

Join Chef Alexa (a vegan chef-in-training) as she embarks on her mission to “teach trannies to cook flavorful vegan meals” and helps Trent (of “That’s My Jam” fame) whip up a dish of Vegan Spaghetti and Not-Balls (get it?).

Learn about everything from the art of chiffonade to why a transgender man who is dating a bio man would bother transitioning in the first place!

    Awesome – two of my favorite things (veganism and trannies) in one place! I’ll definitely be spreading the word about this.

    Um, tranny is still a pejorative.

    Yeah, I’m confused too–they’re still shaped like balls, just cause they’re not meat. Also, what happened at the end? I totally saw them put the BALLS in that pot.

    (p.s.: I really want the correct singular spelling to be “trannie,” like hippie, yuppie, etc.)

    umm, huh, yeah. OK.

    I know there’s a debate in certain circles about the use of the word, “trannie” and how reclaiming it from those who hate them is a good thing and I still cringe, I mean not just inside, I visibly cringe when I hear a cissexual person repeatedly call a trans person “tranny” as in, “you go that, tranny?” etc. I personally find it demeaning and condescending. I mean, jeez, the guy’s name is Trent, why don’t you call him that? He’s gay, why didn’t you ask him, “You got that, faggot?” (Yeah, for some of us, “tranny” hurts THAT much!)

    I assume the dialog was written with humor as its intent. I appreciate the video’s attempt to educate about the differences between sexual orientation and gender identity. The whole thing absolutely falls flat on its face as far as I’m concerned, however, because of the flippant use of this term that so many trans people still find painful and demeaning.

    That really made no sense and wasn’t funny. Would you ever talk to anyone and call them “homo” or “hetero” over and over again in place of their name? “Hi, hetero. Here’s how you cook, hetero!” “Why, thank you, homo. What’s next, homo?” What the bloodyhell is going on here?

    aw, this video sounded like it was going to be way more awesome than it was. the way she says “have you ever peeled a clove of garlic, tranny?” just sounds hella creepy and awkward : I guess she means well, but she’s going way overboard with the reclaiming.

    here is Susan Stryker, an trans woman, historian, and author of numerous highly acclaimed articles and books using the word “tranny.” the entire thing is amazing, but you may want to begin at 4:15.

    Ms Striker is a trans woman and gets a pass for using that word. If it’s to be reclaimed, that reclamation is a trans person’s job.
