Transgender Teen Jazz Jennings Shares the Horrifying Comments and Threats She Gets

Transgender Teen Jazz Jennings Shares the Horrifying Comments and Threats She Gets:

“In the debut episode of Jazz Jennings’s TLC reality show I Am Jazz, there’s a disturbing moment where two young men walk by her and call her ‘tranny freak.’ It’s a jarring incident that takes place after viewers have witnessed Jazz going about her life in the same way most teen girls do — shopping, talking about boys, arguing with her mom about wearing makeup. But it’s at that exact moment when the audience is snapped back into the realization that Jazz isn’t just an ordinary teen. She’s one who constantly faces harassment, ostracism, and much worse. “
