TLC star Jazz Jennings wants to clear the air on some of her recent Instagram posts.

After receiving some negative comments, Jazz is setting the record straight once and for all.

Jazz Jennings Wants Her Fans To Have Bodily Autonomy

“I’d like to address some comments I’ve received about my body positivity posts,” Jazz began her Instagram post. She shared comments she receives on posts including:

  • “So the trans ideology says ‘love yourself and be who you are’ but also ‘cut off perfectly healthy body parts and mutilate your genitals’ do u see why this relays a confusing message?”
  • “You don’t love your body, you changed it”

“I understand this point, but I have a different perspective,” Jazz continued. “Sometimes, loving yourself and your body means honoring your desire to make a change. It’s like going to the gym: you do it to boost your confidence and improve your image. How you look is important in this world because it influences how we perceive one another.”

The TLC star went on to discuss how everyone deserves to have autonomy over their own body. Ultimately, personal freedom to choose is what matters most.

“I expect there to be a lot of contrasting opinions regarding this post. Everyone holds a different view, and I ask for you to be respectful of others in this discourse,” the TLC star concluded.
