Ready or not, the “world’s first transgender doll” has debuted and will soon be marketed to children.
Reality television transgender activist, Jazz Jennings, inspired the “Jazz” doll, unveiled by the Tonner Doll Company at the New York Toy Fair

The company, which is known for making collectible dolls for adults, does not specify if the doll is “anatomically correct.” But Jazz does sport feminine hair and makeup as well a pink shirt and jean shorts like the real Jazz featured on the cover of her memoir documenting her life as a transgender teen. Another variation of the doll is wearing all white.

The 16 year-old, who was born male but identifies as female, has a huge Instagram and YouTube audience and was the subject of the TLC reality TV series called “I Am Jazz.”

“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!” Jennings posted on Instagram along with a picture of the doll.
The news was met with mixed reactions on Twitter as many expressed everything from amusement to outrage over the doll, set to be marketed to children in July. Some were even confused by the very idea of a transgender doll.

@heatstreet @benshapiro Why is there a need for a transgender doll? This is nonsense.

@heatstreet @benshapiro does this doll have interchangeable parts in case it changed its mind?? ?

@heatstreet @benshapiro I’m so confused. If it’s a girl doll, how does one know the doll was born a boy?

@heatstreet @benshapiro Advertising should include ‘$100,000 of reconstructive surgery and hormone therapy not included’.

@heatstreet So is it a doll that finally has a penis? otherwise how do we know it is transgender it is a fucking doll
— Ronnie Mendicino Jr (@biggoesbackin) February 23, 2017
@heatstreet @benshapiro How does this work e.g Barbie and Ken famously have no genitals so how does a doll become Trans?
Anything for a buck
