Do you think using the word "tranny" to refer to a vehicle's transmission, a transformer, or a transistor radio is offensive to trans people?

Not at all. It's the same word with a completely different and unrelated meaning; "the tranny in my Chevy needs replacing" is no more offensive than "have you got a fag for me, mate?"
22(20.2%)
Only as long as it is not used in a "wink-wink-nudge-nudge look-I-m-getting-away-with-a-nasty-slur" way.
16(14.7%)
You don't think it's offensive in that context, but you also think it's better to avoid it; there could be people within earshot who aren't aware of the context.
40(36.7%)
You are really not sure.
18(16.5%)
Yes, it's an offensive word in any context.
5(4.6%)
Something else.
8(7.3%)

THIS MORNING I STUMBLED OVER NOTHING AFTER GETTING UP AND FELL BACK INTO BED. I RLY SHOULD HAVE STAYED THERE.
57(24.4%)
