Watch: Transgender 13-year-old makes heartfelt YouTube plea for acceptance
pink news ^ | 8-4-2014

Posted on 08/04/2014 7:16:57 AM PDT by Citizen Zed

A transgender YouTube star has posted a video urging for people to accept everyone for who they are.

The 13-year-old Jazz, who was thrust into the media  spotlight when she appeared on TV programme 20/20 aged just 6, says: “A lot of transgender people are treated unfairly. It’s upsetting to know there are still prejudiced people who don’t accept others.

She talks about the prejudice she has experienced, saying: “When some people say we don’t appreciate God’s creation, or argue that the Bible doesn’t say LGBTQ people are ethical, I get confused.

“It befuddles me how we have to undermine others and look forward to their failures.

“It’s annoying when people argue about being different. To place it into right and wrong is beyond what it is – in being different, there is no right or wrong, it’s just who you are. “Being transgender has made me who I am: a stronger person, a more confident person, and a person with pride. “Progress is being made, and the world is transitioning into a new time. I can see the change.

Jazz, who keeps her surname and where in the US she lives a secret for her safety reasons, also posted a video of her answering questions from the public.

Her high profile in the media came about after many TV appearances, including a documentary about her on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Jazz has also founded the Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation, and has co-written a book, I Am Jazz.

The Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation? This kid has been mentally I'll since age 6 and society just enables and normalizes it. I can't watch the video because I'd puke for sure.

What a shame, hopefully he will receive treatment for his mental illness and go on to live a normal life. I wouldn't count on it though, our culture has, for some reason decided to celebrate the mental illness's of homosexuality and trans-gender instead of treating them.

I truly feel sad for this child — Unfortunately “it’s” parents weren’t strong enough to teach this child right from wrong — What a tortured life this child will be forced to live. Sad...very sad.

Thanks, but I'll take a pass on watching the video.

Purple Rainbow? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?

Transgender at age 6 = where the hell were the parents at that age?

Especially the dad. "No, you're not going to dress up as a girl. And that's the end of it."

I don’t like the idea of “trans kids”.

Why are we enabling children to be “trans kids”?

Regarding “trans whatever” peoples, it seems to me, that this whole area of life should be limited to consenting adults.

If one becomes an adult and still feels this sexual confusion, then explore all of that, when you are an adult, with professionals.

It seems abusive to me, to take a child who has no clue about sex behavior or sex identity, who has not yet gone through puberty, and have enabling adults in that child’s life enabling him/her that they are really a different sex than the sex they were born.

Liberal homosexual activists tell us that they were “born that way”. But these “trans” kids, we’re saying that they weren’t born the sex they clearly were born as.

Which is it, liberals? Are people born a certain way or not? Can’t have it both ways.

Tolerance is accepting people for what they are, not what you hope them to be. However tolerance does not preclude a thoughtful individual from making a value judgement. Also “tolerance” is a convenient facade for indifference. The indifference toward fellow human beings who are leading tortured and diseased lives. “They are what they are. Nothing I can or should do. Good luck and goodbye.”

In order to be a “trans” child, a child needs to have enabling parents. It’s sad that some parents just don’t do their job properly.

That is exactly it. I accept all weirdos as weirdos, and treat them with compassion and pity. Compassion and pity do not constitute rejection.
But I will not promote their weirdness. The world has enough problems as it is.

Here is your spokes-”thingy” for post modern America.

Here is your American Citizen of the future.

Here is your future Congressional Rep.

Here is the result of a Century of Relentless Progressivism.

Here is the offspring of an America grown so self satisfied and successful, that we allowed our prosperity to be used against us.

America is learning that achieving greatness is much easier then sustaining greatness.

The fact that the parents named it "Jazz" just like Cher's famous "transgendered" thing means they were planning on doing this to the kid.

In other words this is nurture not nature.

Well, “Jazz,” you are a 13-year-old. Being befuddled is a fairly natural state at that age. Do you think it’s wise to be making permanent, life-changing decisions at a time when your sexuality is just barely awakened? Maybe it would be better for all of us — including other CHILDREN your age who are equally befuddled — if you sat down and shut up instead of milking this perverted society for 15 minutes of fame and a guest slot on “Oprah.”

There is no such thing as a ‘transgender’. People can mutilate their bodies but it doesn’t change their gender.

I once knew a black man named Wanda. His mother wanted a little girl so bad she gave him that name and wouldn’t change it when he was born. He was ridiculed at no end when he was in school then doppec out, turned into a drug addict and was reportedly gay though I never saw the evidence firsthand. I you wonder why he was so screwed up.../s

From the comments:

Gender Identity is so much more complex than XX or XY chromosomes.

Oh, those pesky chromosomes.

He's a little cutie now, but adolescence is going to wreck that pretty complexion.

So, does this boi like girls while dressing and acting like one?

Or does the boi like other boi's while dressing like a girl?

He can't be a lesbian, he's a boi.

But he can be a homosexual and like another boi.

Near me in California, there
is a white boy trapped in a
black boy’s body.

Everyone in his life is trying
to tell him that his race makes
him a victim.

But similar to Jazz in the video,
he kept correcting his parents,
saying, No Dad, I’m white.

Now he’s getting race-reassignment
procedures, and he’s asking for,
and receiving, the support of the
caring portion of society. </sarc>
