Yup, for some reason, Derick felt the need to go after a teenager, and claim her existence is a "myth." He commented on promo from TLC for the show I Am Jazz, which follows the life of a teenage trans girl. He called it an "oxymoron" of a reality show, since apparently transgender people don't exist in reality. Or something.
