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. Its upsetting to know there are still prejudiced people who dont accept others.
She talks about the prejudice she has experienced, saying: When some people say we dont appreciate Gods creation, or argue that the Bible doesnt say LGBTQ people are ethical, I get confused.
It befuddles me how we have to undermine others and look forward to their failures.
Its 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, its 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.

Post of the day!
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.
I think he was replying to the “transgendered” person.
its name is Jazz....
Purple Rainbow? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?
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.”
“It” is a mess.
I fault the parents for not getting this kid psychiatric help years ago.
Amen, bro. I mean, sis. I mean.....oh, forget it. I'm out.
the article,. Mr K, the article ;-)
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.
Its name should be “Jack” ...
Short for “Jacked Up”.
Just wondering . . . if you can elect to become a different sex than you are genetically designed, can you elect to become a different species than your genetics describe?
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.

Parents should be charged with child abuse.
no-endorsement does not constitute rejection
Vile. The parents of this child have molested the mind.
Yes. So horribly sad. Just sad.
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.
Hey DUDE, yes dude, you ain’t a girl.
DNA don’t lie, you’re still a guy.
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.”
So her parents named it “Jazz.”
I think I see what the trouble is.
There is no such thing as a ‘transgender’. People can mutilate their bodies but it doesn’t change their gender.
“Celebrate”?. More like transform them into deviants at a young age anymore. Candy is old school. Now they use social media and school systems.
It must not be discriminated against much if it is a t.v STAR.
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
Guess it didn't work out like it did for "Sue."
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.
Whatta want for Winter Holiday Jazz?
...can I get a pair of tits mom? ...pretty pls.
> Regarding trans whatever peoples, it seems to me, that this whole area of life should be limited to consenting adults.
Just wait until this pansexualcrap gets old and being straight becomes the newest thing. Talk about confusion.
I accept people regardless of whether they have chopped or grafted. I object to the chopping and grafting, not the people.
Yes, you are. Blame it on your parents. One day you might wise up.
"Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish?
It has nothing to do with how many Xs and Ys they have, it's all about the severe need for ATTENTION!!!!! Just wait until society is immune to transgenders so they then have to claim they're trans-species. Whaaaaa, I demand you acknowledge me as a pink purple dotted llama with tail feathers!
“She talks about the prejudice she has experienced,”
So, it’s guy, right?
(I’m not interested in watching someone’s mental illness.)
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>
This is pure child abuse.
