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. --To read the full story and others, visit http://www.abcnews.com Follow ABC News across the web!

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

I respect Transgender people but they want to change their gender because they want to be a girl/boy. I dont believe jazz is a transgender because she wants to date a girl lol

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....

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?!
