Sadly, the school in question ultimately caved to the hate group's pressure about eight months prior to last night's episode.

While J.J. might have lost the fight against the school, she definitely didn't lose her cool when a heckler at the town hall yelled:

This is such a dumb decision — but at least Jazz Jennings got it right!

What the what?!

In an upcoming episode of her TLC series I Am Jazz, 14-year-old reveals she's had a "pretty rocky relationship" with boys in the past.

Jennings admitted to being bullied and ostracized by boys just for being transgender, explaining:

"Being transgender has completely turned boys off from liking me. This one time this really cute boy liked me, and then once he found out I was transgender he started calling me 'chick with a d*ck' behind my back."

The reality star says that her friends are always hugged and embraced by boys while she is totally ignored. Check out the clip (below) to hear more:
