Being Jazz My Life as a (Transgender) Teen exemplifies everything we do not want on the library shelves of Edmond Public Schools
Being Jazz My Life as a (Transgender) Teen exemplifies everything we do not want on the library shelves of Edmond Public Schools. Why encourage behavior that places a child at risk? According to new statistics released by The Trevor Project, the world’s largest self-proclaimed suicide prevention and crisis organization created specifically for LGBTQ young people, 42% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, including more than half of transgender and nonbinary youth (2021 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health).
Jazz Jennings, now 21 years of age, has received a good bit of attention and accolades for his (He will always be a biological male) transition. His claims to fame include being an influencer, videos on YouTube, and having his own TV show, now in its seventh season on TLC. And of course, Jazz is an activist. I cannot imagine that these activities do not equate to money, a lot of money. But at what cost?
For more information about gender dysphoria and how the transitioning of children destroys their bodies and their future—I would argue it is child abuse—please check out the link below to endocrinologist. Dr. Michael K Laidlaw’s book review of the first book written about and by Jazz Jennings with co-author Jessica Herthel, I Am Jazz. The first book intended for very young audiences is filled with lies and distortions which Dr. Laidlaw exposes. Dr. Laidlaw’s essay is from a scientific perspective, rather than a feel-good perspective. When it comes to our children, I side with science!
By purchasing this book with taxpayer dollars, Edmond Public Schools glamorizes and promotes self-destructive lifestyles, lifestyles dangerous to our children. The placement of Being Jazz on the shelves of the Edmond library is counterintuitive to the mental health of our children. For the sake of our children, it must be removed, immediately.
Update: After writing the above blog, I happened onto this new article on the Gateway Pundit. How tremendously sad.
