Triggering click event on checkbox using .click() behaves differently to when it is clicked on by the user

I am building a generic select-all checkbox where clicking it switches all the other checkboxes in the same table column.

In order to increase the hit-box of the checkbox, I made it so that clicking the parent td of the select-all checkbox would simply trigger a click event on the checkbox itself. However, by triggering the event in this way the order in which the checkbox is ticked/unticked, and then the event handlers are activated, seems to be reversed. For a trimmed down example, please see

Tested in chrome, firefox and IE 7-9.
