Jazz Dates a Girl in New Season

While out shopping, the high school junior is surprised when her friend suggests that she meet a girl she knows.

“I happened to meet a girl who I think you would really like,” Jennings is told.

Although Jennings is initially taken aback by being set up with a female, she is open-minded about an introduction.

“This is a good time to experiment with my sexuality,” shares Jennings, who meets the girl on a group outing and later spends one-to-one time with her. “The more I get to know her, the more I am attracted to her."

Season 4 of I Am Jazz premieres Tuesday, Jan. 2 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC

R4, I don’t understand the “skin stretchers” comment, but yes, depending on how much. People can have trouble absorbing enough nutrients or have chronic diarrhea-like symptoms. You need all the intestine you have, but they sometimes remove some, if you have chronic severe inflammation like Crohn’s disease.

What did they do to her? Did she have part of her intestine removed?

If the penis isn't big enough to invert to make a neo-vagina, intestine can be used.

Jazz has been on hormones and a blocker from an early age so has a tiny penis. There was talk of applying hormone cream for growth, which Jazz shot down. Now talking of doing skin stretching to supply more tissue for a neo-vag, also shot down.

A neo-vag has a demanding dilation schedule, for life, lest it close up.

So if he went on testosterone to grow his penis, testicles and scrotum large enough to harvest skin for the fake vag, it'd mean he'd also have a developed glans and some hope of experiencing an orgasm in his life. But then they risk Jazz going through puberty, which would mean normal brain development, which, more than likely, would mean the "dysphoria" naturally resolving itself, and Jazz becoming comfortable within himself as a normal, healthy and sexual young gay man.

I doubt his parents or the show are about to let that happen.

I feel bad for Jason/Jazz. I wonder how much the girl on the reality TV show is being paid to "date" Jazz?

R7 hypothetically yes, but a lot of the Trans people I have met even the pre-op and no op ones feel that unless they take estrogen constantly they will commit suicide. I personally do not understand this as I have known some of them before they transitioned at all and they were not suicidal then at all, despite how they did not take estrogen.

The mom is batshit. She lives for the drama that her youngest child creates. As a grandmother mentioned in an earlier season, Jazz never hears the word “no,” about anything. I’d think they need the income of that show, as the kid would run them financially into the ground otherwise.

What was sad to observe on that show, is how indifferent the mother is to the three other children. I mean, they’ve had milestones and injuries and such. The mom is just: blank. The lights are dim and no one’s home today. She’s got it in her head to to hover, as who knows when my greedy child will throw a fit a hissy fit and commit suicide.

I doubt the marriage will last much longer. I’m guessing the husband will want out of that crazy house once the financial commitments to their minor children are complete.

That's very true R49, I have met Transwomen who opted NOT to transition or take any hormones at all as they felt as though the hormones, surgery, etc. would not make them into a woman or the opposite sex/gender but just a person imitating the opposite sex/gender, and that the surgery, hormones, etc. are not yet advanced enough to make them change sex/gender.

There are also trans women who keep their penis as the full surgery is expensive and apparently sometimes the surgery makes it so they can't have an orgasm or have to really masturbate a lot to have an orgasm.

I feel very bad for Trans people both FTM and MTF, and anyone intersex as well.

I wonder what the real story is with Jason/Jazz? Did he/she even want to transition, go to lots of therapy with a psychiatrist-trans people used to do this for a very long time before transitioning I am not sure if they still do?-and I do wonder why the show only focuses on Jazz's sexuality, and not much else like R17 and R55 said, and why you never hear anything about her siblings?

I only watched bits and pieces of the last season r57 but the twin brothers did pop up once or twice but mostly just being supportive of Jazz for about 5 minutes.

This may be a weird comparison but I thought it was interesting that the one daughter (Amy I think) in whatever that Ozzy/Sharon Osbourne family reality show wanted no part of any of it and was never seen- only occasionally mentioned. Can't say I blame her. Also, I never followed any of the Honey Boo Boo shit and have no idea how many if any siblings or extended family members agreed to participate. Not everyone is dying to be a reality TV star.

One thing I find disturbing tho. Jazz must have a sister too because I remember Jazz saying how she wanted to be a mother and how happy she was to have a sister who could carry a baby for her. No clue how old the sister might be or if she ever actually said that on the show but it says a lot about the immature thinking of JJ to assume their sister would be willing to be artificially inseminated with whatever man's sperm (since Jazz doesn't have any) carry the kid for 9 months and then happily hand it over to her "sister" to raise. Even assuming the sister actually said she'd do that as a teen there's certainly no guarantee that she'd feel the same way as an adult.

More food for thought about whether teens and even 18+ young adults really have the mental maturity to grasp the life long implications of the choices they're being allowed to make as teens and even as children way too young to have a clue.

Being a reality TV star is toxic for ordinary people. Look at families like the Honey Boo-Boo people and Kate and her eight, they've become unemployable desperate famewhores who devote their life to recapturing their one burst of fame and easy money. I shudder to think what that will mean for someone like Jazz who has real difficulties to face, realizing that her doctors can't actually make her into the pretty girl she wants to be would be difficult or devastating for any kid. But Jazz can't be left to work out her options with her family and her therapist, she's got to please her public and keep the show going, and keep the money flowing into her parents' pockets. Which is a terrible thing to do to a teenager with real issues, but her parents are obviously all for it.

And speaking of pleasing the public, I'm pretty sure this "girlfriend" is being brought in by the producers, to break up the routing of hearing Jazz whine about not having a boyfriend. That doesn't make good TV, even if it's the kid's life.

Good Lord.... Jazz was diagnosed as trans when he was SIX YEARS OLD. What kind of parent just "follows the lead" of a child who has barely mastered complete sentences!? If my parents had followed this philosophy, I would have spent most of my childhood eating ice cream, skipping school, and staying up until 2am watching trashy talk shows.

There were kids I grew up with both boys and girls who did not want to play with toys or do stereotypical things for their sex/gender like boys who didn't want to or like to play sports, and girls who would rather play sports or with boy's toys, and nowadays these young kids would be diagnosed as being Trans. My bisexual and gay male friends who are queens/femme would also be diagnosed as being Trans.

These parents are idiots! They're so stupid that they honestly believe that pumping their son full of drugs and hormones based on a decision the kid made at age SIX is a good idea!! This is straight up negligence and child abuse all for reality TV.

There are people who are Transgendered, but they are ADULTS and as ADULTS they made the choice to transition via hormones and cosmetic sex change surgery.

Children and Teens while they can know that they are not heterosexual if they are bisexual or gay/lesbian, are not always completely sure if they are bisexual or gay/lesbian, or even trans.

For example when I was a kid one of my friends his younger sister would talk about how she wanted to be a boy to have a penis. She's now an adult, not trans at all, and is heterosexual.

Jasons'/Jazz' parents are doing this just for attention, fame, and money.

I have a friend that's actually Transgendered, and she waited until she was an adult and in her late 20s or early 30s to transition and this happened after a lot of therapy, and even she does not agree with giving kids or teenagers hormones or surgery.

This was said by a Pediatrician and a parent of children: Most, if not all, children on puberty blockers go on to take cross-sex hormones (estrogen for biological boys, testosterone for biological girls). The only study to date to have followed pre-pubertal children who were socially affirmed and placed on blockers at a young age found that 100 percent of them claimed a transgender identity and chose cross-sex hormones.

This suggests that the medical protocol itself may lead children to identify as transgender.

There is an obvious self-fulfilling effect in helping children impersonate the opposite sex both biologically and socially. This is far from benign, since taking puberty blockers at age 12 or younger, followed by cross-sex hormones, sterilizes a child.

5. Cross-sex hormones are associated with dangerous health risks.

From studies of adults we know that the risks of cross-sex hormones include, but are not limited to, cardiac disease, high blood pressure, blood clots, strokes, diabetes, and cancers.

6. Neuroscience shows that adolescents lack the adult capacity needed for risk assessment.

Scientific data show that people under the age of 21 have less capacity to assess risks. There is a serious ethical problem in allowing irreversible, life-changing procedures to be performed on minors who are too young themselves to give valid consent.

7. There is no proof that affirmation prevents suicide in children.

Advocates of the transition-affirming protocol allege that suicide is the direct and inevitable consequence of withholding social affirmation and biological alterations from a gender-dysphoric child. In other words, those who do not endorse the transition-affirming protocol are essentially condemning gender-dysphoric children to suicide.

Yet as noted earlier, prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 95 percent of gender-dysphoric youth ended up happy with their biological sex after simply passing through puberty.

In addition, contrary to the claim of activists, there is no evidence that harassment and discrimination, let alone lack of affirmation, are the primary cause of suicide among any minority group. In fact, at least one study from 2008 found perceived discrimination by LGBT-identified individuals not to be causative.

Over 90 percent of people who commit suicide have a diagnosed mental disorder, and there is no evidence that gender-dysphoric children who commit suicide are any different. Many gender dysphoric children simply need therapy to get to the root of their depression, which very well may be the same problem triggering the gender dysphoria.

8. Transition-affirming protocol has not solved the problem of transgender suicide.

Adults who undergo sex reassignment—even in Sweden, which is among the most LGBT-affirming countries—have a suicide rate nearly 20 times greater than that of the general population. Clearly, sex reassignment is not the solution to gender dysphoria.

Bottom Line: Transition-Affirming Protocol Is Child Abuse

The Swedish study had six authors, and none of them have protested what people found and represented in their government-funded long term follow up study of transgenders, showing that supposed female psyches born with male bodies have the same crime pattern as men, among other things.

One of the most telling things to me on this subject is that we don't like kids drive until 16, vote and smoke until 18 and drink until 21 but they can decide what gender they want to be at 8?

Do people honestly believe that a young child who thinks they are the opposite sex should go through all of this to become who they "think" they are at such a young age?

This isn't the first time that a population has been affected by transient mental illness. It happened in the middle ages a lot, We think we are more advanced than that but the current mass hysteria sweeping the nation shows that we are still susceptible

Mass hysteria, mass psychosis, whatever; that is exactly what is happening. It will eventually collapse in scandal, as these things do.

One day we will look back on this medical fad like we look back on the lobotomy craze now, wondering how professional, educated people allowed themselves to succumb to such ignorance and fraud.

I feel very bad for Trans kids/teens as they should just be allowed to be who they are, and should NOT be given hormones, or surgery but should be given therapy and time to figure out just who they are. They have the rest of their lives as adults to transition and take all the hormones and get all the surgery that they want by their own choice as legal adults.

R86 I'm guessing the HRC did this, after we bisexuals, gays/lesbians got our rights? Or maybe a bit before then since they started adding "Trans" to LGB, and now they've added an I for intersex/hermaphrodites, and other letters, including a Q for the dated Queer.

I do wonder how many kids who are now claiming to be Trans or who have parents who are told by a doctor "Your kid is trans!" just because they don't do "normal" things related to their sex/gender, really are not trans at all

100% of them. There is no such thing as "trans."

The few genuine doctors out there concerned about it have said these kids turn out to be usually mostly gay, or they had some anxiety. Now this media and internet fuelled promotion is getting more kids sucked into it and really stuck into it. And you can bet clueless parents and "doctors" that are sexist and homophobic on some level are labelling kids trans. It is a nightmare, and a big crime.

When the brain and body are at odds, why is it the default opinion that it is the body that is wrong and must be altered to align with the brain?

Why is it never even considered that the brain might be wrong and must be altered to align with the body?

Our brains are much more easily influenced than our bodies. They are much more likely to be changed by emotional trauma , abuse, hormones, etc.

Why is the idea that a child might just be confused, or simply imitating the opposite sex/gender, never the obvious approach?

Giving a child hormone blockers and later cutting off the stunted genitals is grotesque and is the furthest thing from sane and healthy.

Now, if someone is an adult and figures out that they are trans and wants to transition that's fine as it's their choice to do this as a legal adult, and they can take all the hormones and get any type of surgery they want.

The depression and suicide is after they alter their hormones and cut off body parts. That's what makes them want to kill themselves.

R89, one reason that the emphasis is on altering the body to fit the brain is because there's no way to effectively change the brain to fit the body. Psychiatrists don't have a good track record in that respect, at least with adults, any more than they have any luck changing people from homosexual to heterosexual. There have been documented cases of body dysmorphic disorder and related issues that are purely neurological in origin, and in those cases science has no way to change the brain.

BTW I do think that there might be a neurological origin for some transsexuals, something in the brain that says "I am male" or "I am female" gets it wrong. But of course that's not all transpeople and not a majority, people try to change sex for all sorts of reasons - gender dysphoria, fetishism, trying not to be gay, delusion, wanting to become someone else or elude the authorities, etc. There's even an argument over that within the trans community, google the word "truetrans" if you want examples.
