10-year-old Jackie, formerly Jack.

Jezebel posted amazing video today by ABC News about an Ohio boy named Jack who at age 10 began living as a girl.  Jackie, as she’s now known, has the full support of her sister and her parents, but her Grandfather remains skeptical about the family’s choice to embrace Jackie’s new life.  Jackie is totally happy as her female self and her parents say she “has more playdates now than ever before.”  I dare you to watch this piece and not feel gleeful about the future of humanity!

Jackie’s story is one among many that will be featured on “Primetime Nightline’s (Extra)Ordinary Family” special, airing tonight, Wednesday, Aug. 31 at 10 p.m./9c on ABC.  The special is sure to receive some negative responses in the conservative blogosphere.  I’m anxious to see what happens!

Is there a real difference between raising boys and girls?
