Read what she has to say!
By: Emily J
“Let’s face it, your average straight cis-gender teenage boy isn’t going to pursue a relationship with a trans-girl. Even if he does find her attractive, it could be social suicide if he acts on his feelings. I know this, because this is my life,” she says.
“I don’t mean to sound harsh, and I know for a fact that there are some boys who don’t mind dating girls with male genitalia, but the majority won’t. Boys flirt and hug my friends, but they just whisk by me as if I don’t exist. Maybe they’re afraid they’ll get cooties, but this is high school so I doubt it’s that—but it sure feels that way.”
Jazz definitely feels like the dating pool is limited because she’s the only “out” transgender girl at school. She is hopeful that the love of her life is out there but she has come to terms with the fact it will be awhile before she’ll meet that someone. “I’ve resigned myself to the fact that it will be awhile before I experience love. I’m okay. I’m a patient person. I can wait for my prince charming.”
We love Jazz and we think article was very brave of her to write up. She is living her true self and we hope her true love is right around the corner!
