On the surface, the Jennings and their four children are a typical American family. But when "20/20" first interviewed them, their youngest child, a kindergartener named Jazz, was already one of the youngest known cases of an early transition from male to female.
From the moment he could speak, Jazz made it clear he wanted to wear a dress. At only 15 months, he would unsnap his onesies to make it look like a dress. When his parents praised Jazz as a "good boy," he would correct them, saying he was a good girl.

By taking communion, you become one with Jesus Christ and he becomes one with you. It is his body physically and his body that he’s gifted to you so disrespecting your body by mutilation and disrespecting that amazing body that you’ve been gifted with is a horrible sin. These trans’ can keep on sinning, as long as I know I’m not going to hell. And I’ll call it “trans” because it certainty isn’t a gender
Kids under the age of 10 shouldnt be allowed to identify themselves as the opposite gender because it could lead to mental issues when they get older. When your kids get older, then they should be allowed to identify themselves as the opposite gender.
Kids under the age of 10 should be CORRECTED on their gender.
This is just out right disgusting. Those parents should have had their child taken away. Letting their kid change their gender at 4 or 5 years old. What horrible parents HE has....then giving him hormone replacement at such a young age I think 10 or 11, that is child abuse ...smh how could you do that to your SON....
i personally refuse to deny biology and don’t believe you can change genders BUT jazz is an incredibly inspiring and kind person, and the death threats that have been sent to this kid over the decade, especially by adults, is disgusting. you freaks desperately need to get a life

To think about it, there is nothing wrong with trans people AT ALL. They’re regular humans and all but why make such a big deal about it? If they’re so normal and stuff why Make such a busy-ass commotion about shit that normal?!

You all know I have no problem working all night, and after all the apologies, I assured Anastasia it wasnt a problem, and we worked till midnight, with Anastasia emerging as another early candidate for Miss Bald USA. At a minimum, she should win Miss Wisconsin and Miss Congeniality, but probably not Miss Punctuality.
Is Anastasia the BEST BALD CHICK EVER? Shes got my vote, and Im guessing she will win a lot of votes from our community!!
Anastasias hair is long, silky Pantene hair, and its all coming off tonight!!
Her figure is Miss America PERFECT, and soon she will be shaved to silky smooth perfection!! A GODDESS AMONG WOMEN!! What a way to celebrate the Fourth of July!!
She loves her new haircut, and cant wait to show off her new BALD BEAUTY to her friends!!
