TLC is becoming the latest network to explore transgender life.
The cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for All That Jazz, a docuseries following 14-year-old transgender activist Jazz Jennings, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The 11-episode series will feature Jennings dubbed "The New Face of Transgender Youth" in her daily life, juggling her foray into high school while navigating how a transgender teen approaches dating and sleepovers all while avoiding male puberty.
Jennings, who has been featured on 20/20, The Rosie Show and was named one of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014 by Time magazine, was assigned male at birth. Jennings who also wrote children's book I Am Jazz with Jessica Herthel about living as a transgender teen expressed her desire for all things typically associated with girls at an early age. In 2004, Jennings was diagnosed with gender identity disorder.

I haven’t watched TLC in years. Nice of them to deceptively call the Stupidity Channel “The Learning Channel”.
I am a glad I am not 20 or 30 something and have the possibility of living another 40 or so to see what a shiite hole this country becomes if we do not rectify the course soon.
The emperor’s new cloths?
And finally, the last old-guard bunker to fall: the Boy Scouts, completing the cycle of government-approved sodomite corruption. For a century the Scouts were morally straight? According to whose definition of straight? So why shouldnt adult homosexual Scout leaders share tents with teenagers in our brave new world? Dont be a homophobe, we were told. Each child can make his or her own free choice about their gender identity, but now with helpful adult mentors to guide them along the formerly forbidden paths.
If it feels good, do it. Or have it done to you. Or even do it unto the little children. Tommy wants to become Tomasina before heading to kindergarten? Her brave new mommy agrees? A government-provided surgeon will perform the gender reassignment operation. And if kindergarten isnt soon enough to put the kids on the unrepressed road to gender identification, then start them on Heather Has Two Mommies and Prince and Prince cartoon books in the government-subsidized day care centers.
Smiling experts assured us that we were merely throwing off the shackles of our repressed sexualities. Dissent is hate, and hate is not tolerated around here, mister, so shut up and get with the program. Well, I couldnt get with the program, so I quit my public high school job. As a world history teacher, moving from a public school to a Christian academy (at less pay and fewer benefits) gave me a couple more years of insulation from the social wreckage cascading down.
I kept looking up for the big asteroid, but we didnt need God to smite us from outer space. In the end, we smote ourselves with our hubris, believing that we were replacing Gods wisdom with our own. The proud decadence and in-your-face cultural perversions didnt cause the Rupture, but they were surely flashing red signs warning that the end was near.

Where one must accept delusions as “facts”.... or else
Transgender life in a reality show...? I prefer the butt naked couple yelling at each other in the jungle reality show...(What crappola!)
Reminds me of a documentary about the just pre nazi days of Germany where depravity was no longer discouraged but embraced and encouraged.
Just wait until ‘his’ voice starts to change. Then again, he may be prepared to spend the rest of his public life talking in a strained falsetto. It worked for Michael Jackson, sort of worked. This will be heavy on the diva/drama. Is his family truly ready for this, or perhaps he is estranged from them.
Weimar Germany was Mayberry, NC compared to the West today.
We all said the same thing during the Wicca fad, the Goth fad, the Emo fad,etc just like our parents did with Beatniks and Hippies . After it becomes “normal”, kids quit doing it.
In some ways yes but in others not so much.
“assigned male at birth”
Now, that’s a curious expression.
Those other fads did not get government and media support the way this one does.
Not really. The Weimar Germans could were some seriously twisted people.
More ladyboys in the US means fewer arrests for sex tourism in Asia.
The Learning Channel has been transformed into The Total Lame Crap Channel. God am I ever happy to have discontinued Dish and all other providers, I don’t miss this liberal immoral pandering one damn bit!
What’s it called , Insane In a Dress ?
Nuke us now!
Ever notice that normal people cannot get on TV?&
