Calpernia addams dating show cast members
Transamerican Love Story is the first reality dating show in the United States in which contestants compete for the attention and approval of a transgender woman. Zack Rosen of the Washington Blade praised the series, describing it as "refreshing for its lack of sensationalism".
Heather Havrilesky of Salon agreed, and admired Calpernia's composure.
well, Calpernia falls victim to every single one imaginable in Trans culture.
Over inflated lips, exaggerated surgical feminization of the face/body, hyper-sexualization ond encouraged objectification of her body (The outfits she wears, everything from a harem bikini to full on corset and stockings with her bottom hanging out as she performs cabaret!
Calpernia is introduced to eight bachelors, ranging from straight, pansexual to transsexual male.
The contestants of this show are particularly brave, and their diversity alone introduces some fascinating dynamics as well as conflicts regarding social/political/religious ideas.Calpernia herself, the star of this "Bacheorelette-With-A-Twist" reality series is by far the biggest distraction.When I referenced above the critical necessity in our culture for a show like this to break down Stereotypes..Many twists and turns, and much heat, arise when the men come to grips with finding themselves through one another in these closed spaces, while also coming to grips with reality about transgendered people and the LGBT community as a whole.There are of course those snarky "good guys" in the competition who you know just have a totally different plan up their sleeves in the end despite their sweet talking, comforting Calpernia in her dark times, praying to Jesus before a meal ..
