A 12-year-old who was born a male but identifies as a girl, has talked about dating for the first time.

Jazz Jennings, who transitioned seven years ago after being diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder, told Barbara Walters during an episode of 20/20, that she is attracted to boys.

When asked if she was worried about finding a boyfriend, she replied: 'I am a little bit. But if any of the boys decline me because of my situation then I just know they’re not right for me at all.'

Jazz said as a toddler he knew she wanted to be a girl and would unsnap her onsies to make it look like a dress. If people called her a 'good boy' she would correct them, saying she was a good girl.

Her parents first decided to seek advice from a pediatrician when she was two years old, after she asked: 'Mommy, when's the good fairy going to come with her magic wand and change, you know, my genitalia?'

Three years later after being diagnosed with GID Jazz made the transition from male to female.

She grew her hair out, pierced her ears, and wore dresses everywhere - even to kindergarten.

Her parents explained the situation to their three other children. Jazz's father, Greg, previously told ABC News: 'Jeanette and I are in 100 percent agreement as to how we should raise Jazz. We don't encourage, we support. And we just keep listening to what she tells us.'

Her mother Jeanette added: 'We'll say things like, 'You're special. God made you special.' Because there aren't very many little girls out there that have a penis.'

'Ever since I was younger I had nightmares about growing facial hair and having hair all over my body'

Growing up Jazz's bedroom was filled with girly things - pink bed linen, a closet filled with dresses and an ample collection of stuffed animals.

Set to turn 13 next year she says one of her biggest fears now is puberty.

Jazz previously told the Advocate: 'Ever since I was younger I had nightmares about growing facial hair and having hair all over my body.

'Now that the time has come where this situation might occur, I'm getting nervous and desperate to take hormones to prevent puberty from happening.'

In order to prevent Jazz's nightmare from becoming a reality, she will undergo hormone therapy.

Jazz's mother Jeanette, said: 'I mourn the loss of the idea of my son. I see pictures and the video, and that child's gone. But there's a wonderful person now that's with us.'

First doctors will prescribe blockers that will prevent the growth of body hair and the development of other masculine characteristics.

Next estrogen therapy will allow her body to go through a form of female puberty. She will grow breasts and gain body fat around her hips.

But the treatments are expensive and last year Jeanette revealed that she was quoted $18,000 a year for the hormone-blocking medication.

The final step would be sex reassignment surgery, but most doctors will not perform this until the age of consent, 18.

The Jennings say that if Jazz chooses to take that step, they will fully support her but they are also mindful of keeping all of her options open.

While they now fully accept their son as their daughter, they admit the transition has not been easy.

Jeanette, who started the TransKids Purple Rainbow Foundation to help other families in similar situations, said: 'I mourn the loss of the idea of my son. I see pictures and the video, and that child's gone. But there's a wonderful person now that's with us.'

This June Jazz was awarded the Colin Higgins Youth Courage Award for helping to educate and enlighten others about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer experience.

I think the girl version looks better...though that's probably because girl version is older than boy version was in the pic. But still...
