That Made Me trans: Episode 5 - The Legend of Korra

August 17, 2017

The girls do their best to avoid treading old ground of action female role models and trans headcanons as they talk out queer themes in the Avatar series, and the landmark new hit Turf Wars and its story of coming out.  We don't spend too long expounding on who we think is trans beyond our usual note of everyone "but especially these cool girls", because c'mon, as if Korra and Asami aren't an obvious transbian power couple.  In this we talk mainly about the lesbian experience in this fantasy world and how those themes can be interpreted, and as a couple of women loving women of various binarism, our sapphic love is kinda key to our girly identities.

Also, just, its a good story y'all.  Check out the Turf Wars comic if you're a fan of the show, for real.

That Made Me Trans: Episode 4 - Character Creation

August 7, 2017

In today's episode of That Made Me Trans, continuing their experimental streak, the girls tackle a broader topic still - the very concept of character creation engines in video games, what that means for them and gaming to insert yourself into a work, and a little naturally on what that has meant for us as budding young trans women.  We go off on some tangents for what is, despite our incresingly crisp editing, our longest episode yet.  So strap in, for some talk on representing characters' issues in a story, and maybe some of Tracy's griping with her love-hate relationship of a video games industry, and Alexis' all-consuming yet ever-inspiring wrath.

That Made Me Trans: Episode 3 - Star vs the Forces of Evil

July 24, 2017

Alexis and Tracy vs Star vs the Forces of Evil vs Trans themes in media!  In today's episode, we talk a bit about the that hip show on Disney that's got the kids talking.  Of course we couldn't help talking about the ever-popular trans marco theory because of how much we relate, but we do try and talk around that and cover some other subjects within the show despite the temptation of that trans princess cutie.  We get into some big talking points around trans performance and self-denial later on that cis people ought to be aware of before they waste their time trying to disprove the theory, 'cause frankly being trans is a complicated and beautiful thing.

That Made Me Trans: Episode 2 - Sailor Moon

July 17, 2017

Continuing to experiment with the format of the show as we find our feet, Alexis and Tracy go off of their memories and personal experience for something from their childhoods, in the long mists of time before they came out.  In this episode, we talk about how Sailor Moon introduced femininity and queer themes to us in a package our young minds appreciated.  We were down a guest that we hoped would keep us on topic, so we just kind of go off talking around it.  We're thinking we might concentrate on more topical things in future episodes, especially given Tracy's dismal memory, but let us know what you think!
