We knew it was coming. Now it’s almost here. The world’s first “transgender doll” will go on sale this summer, based on the life of 16-year-old male-to-female “transgender” activist and cable TV star Jazz Jennings.
The doll is being produced by the New York-based Tonner Doll Company, whose founder and CEO Robert Tonner said in a celebratory press release, “Jazz stands for everything I respect from a human nature point of view — she’s incredibly brave, intelligent, warm-hearted and creative.” A prototype of the “transgender doll” debuted last week at the New York Toy Fair.
Jennings, the media-celebrated star of The Learning Channel (TLC) show “I Am Jazz,” started his “transition” to living as a “female” as a five-year-old boy, with his family’s enthusiastic (and troubling) support. He is taking hormone therapy to block his puberty and natural development into a man.
In an Instagram post about the transgender doll last week, Jennings said:
“This is the first transgender doll on the market, and guess what?! It’s ME!!!@tonnerdoll did a great job of creating this beautiful item! It will be available in July, and I hope that it can place transgender people in a positive light by showing that we are just like all other people. For those asking: the doll is considered to be the first “transgender” doll because it’s based on an individual who is trans. Of course it is still just a regular girl doll because that’s exactly what I am: a regular girl!”
