TLC Promoting the Transgender Lifestyle to Children

TLC Promoting the Transgender Lifestyle to Children

The Learning Channel has approved the series "I Am Jazz," which is about a young teenager who was born a boy and has transgendered to a girl since the age of two years old. The parents supported this decision instead of giving guidance to the confused child. Professional help would now be needed because it is a psychological issue. 1MM knows God doesn't make mistakes.

Previews have already begun airing, and the show will premiere this summer on July 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT. Keep in mind that the promos for this program air much earlier in the evening.

The show is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle and make it appear OK while using a young cast member to lure a young audience. This docu-series is about the real life of a young person and that will attract young viewers to watch.

As this was not enough, Jazz and family wrote a children's book, also titled "I Am Jazz." The graphics on the cover and throughout the book are of an elementary age child to appeal to young children. The book states that the child Jazz has "a girl's brain in a boy's body."

1MM thought a warning should be sent out, not only for the television program, but also for the book that is sold in bookstores and online. The proceeds of the book go to the family's foundation to promote the transgender lifestyle to children in an attempt to normalize it. The family also hopes for the book to make it into public elementary schools.

Obviously, TLC is attempting to desensitize America’s youth by airing programs starring teens. This alone will entice kids to watch.

As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am concerned about the new TLC program called "I Am Jazz." TLC and Discovery Communications are being irresponsible and causing great damage to our culture.

I am appalled that TLC intends to air a show that features the transgender lifestyle in a positive light. The show is attempting to normalize the transgender lifestyle and make it appear OK while using a young cast member to lure a young audience.

I am extremely concerned that TLC feels the need to be politically correct and has crossed the line in pushing the LGBT agenda on a network some families would expect to be safe entertainment.

A boy transitioning into a girl is not natural and completely unacceptable material for a television show. TLC is attempting to desensitize America's youth by airing a program with a teen star. This alone will entice kids to watch. There is plenty of time to do the right thing and pull the plug on this series.

My family and I commit to contact sponsors who advertise during this program if your network follows through with this show. I strongly encourage TLC to drop all plans to air the program "I Am Jazz."

My family will not be watching "I Am Jazz" or anything else on the networks of Discovery Communications in order to avoid seeing the previews for this new show, unless you make some needed changes to your lineup.
