There’s no doubt Jazz Jennings is one of the most inspiring girls in the world, but sadly, there are still plenty of haters out there that want to bash the 15-year-old just because she’s transgender!
One of the worst examples happened on Wednesday night’s episode of I Am Jazz.
The teen sat down for a radio interview and was surprised when a caller said:
“I’m just trying to wrap my head around this. How do you even approach dating?”
This may have sounded innocent enough, but then the man, who went by the name Alex, added:
“Because honestly you may as well kill yourself back where I’m from … trying to date in school in your condition.”
Well it’s a good thing Jazz is pretty damn quick witted as she fired back with the PERFECT response!
Ch-ch-check out a clip from last night’s episode, as well as the reality star’s wonderful response (below)!
As for how Jazz handled the pressure of the moment, well she was a pro as she replied:
“I think the reason why the dating situation is very difficult is because a lot of people think like you. They are ignorant, uneducated, and they don’t know the situation. And I know that one day I will find someone out there who does accept me for who I am and who does realize that I’m beautiful no matter what. It doesn’t matter what’s between my legs, it’s what’s between my ears and what’s in my chest, my heart and I wish everyone could understand that, including yourself.”
Talk about a well crafted answer — she schooled the caller WHILE educating him! LOLz!
What do you think of Jennings’ response to the AWFUL comment?!
