Boy Transitioned to a "Girl" By His Stage Mom: "I Don't Feel Like Myself [Anymore] Ever"

"Jazz" -- really a boy named Jared -- was "transitioned" at six years old by a mom chasing Internet fame.

If there's a perfect test case for "transitioning" young children, it must be Jazz Jennings.

Born Jared Jennings in 2000, Jennings gained fame at a young age, barely 6, when he publicly identified as trans and received all the positive reinforcement from his mother and even celebrities like Oprah that any child could ever crave.

Horrifying stuff. You might want to skip reading this and just assume that all of your nightmares about the mutilation of children are real.

The story of Jazz Jennings, whose parents began their attempts to transition him to female when he was just 5 years old, had a major impact on the acceptance of transgenderism in America. As a child who made TV appearances with Barbara Walters, Jennings was the example par excellence for the perspective that some people innately belong to the opposite gender -- an argument that was made more convincing because Jennings' parents had treated him as a girl since early childhood.

In recent years, however, Jennings has repeatedly made headlines for health problems that offer counter-evidence to the narrative that medicine can seamlessly transition adults or children from one sex to the one they supposedly truly belong to.

A botched penile inversion vaginoplasty that Jennings underwent at the age of 17 required multiple corrective surgeries and left him with greatly diminished sexual function.

One of Jennings' surgeons, Marci Bowers, later went public with hesitancy toward the World Professional Association for Transgender Health's standards of care for children, arguing that the practice of giving 11-year-olds testosterone blockers and 13-year-olds estrogen treatments has made it impossible for doctors to later perform a traditional penile inversion vaginoplasty on them, as doctors are required to take skin grafts in order to have enough tissue, often leaving patients with poor outcomes.

This is exactly what happened with Jennings. His surgery was performed with stomach lining material to make up for the lack of available tissue. Soon after the surgery, his "neovagina" split apart. Three corrective surgeries over a period of years were subsequently performed.

"I think there was naivete on the part of pediatric endocrinologists who were proponents of early [puberty] blockade thinking that just this magic can happen, that surgeons can do anything," said Bowers in an interview with Abigail Shrier, the author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters.

"But honestly," Bowers continued, "I can't sit here and tell you that [people who began transitioning as children] have better -- or even as good -- results. They're not as functional. I worry about their reproductive rights later. I worry about their sexual health later and ability to find intimacy."

Following the initial surgeries, Jennings gained over 100 pounds through binge eating and experienced a range of mental health disorders. Jennings' mother, Jeanette, deflected theories that those difficulties were caused by the penile inversion vaginoplasty and argued that Jazz had long experienced mental health issues.

Hey maybe you should have sent him to therapy for those mental issues instead of "inverting his penis"?

Read the whole thing, if you can.

I can't find it right now, darnit, but the other day, I saw a tweet containing a picture of a pro-transitioning presentation. A powerpoint slide projected on the screen announced "Mental health problems that present with transgenderism," and then listed basically all of the mental health problems, from anxiety to anorexia to depression to suicidal thoughts to ADHD.

The claim the slide was attempting to support was that all of these mental issues arose from "untreated transgenderism," so if you just agree to cut your kid's sex organs off, he or she (or xe) can be all better! All cured of the five or six mental problems he has!

There is obviously no evidence at all for this. But this is how "doctors" sell them their unnecessary surgical deformations to parents.

In "Jazz's" case, the horrifying mother needed no selling.

She saw her kid as a ticket to fame and fortune.
