Bread and circuses.

Not worth complaining about when simply not watching would be far more effective.

Bono, the only child of Sonny Bono and Cher, was born a woman but legally changed his gender and name last year.

Legally and factually are two different things. It may legally be a man, but in actuality was and will remain a woman.

Chaz had one of the “addadicktome” surgeries Rush talks about from time to time.

Born a woman
Still a woman.

The outer shell may have changed, but she is a woman and will remain so all her life.

She was not attractive as a female and is even less so now that she pretends to be a man.

I don’t watch the show, but I think that those who do just want a fun show without all the political underpinnings. It’s a shame that in this time, there isn’t anything without an agenda.

“Stars” being the operative word.

How is “Chaz” a “star”?
Freak show, at best (worst).

Gee I saw your Post and thought DWTFAW, and immediately thought it meant “Dancing With the Fat Assed Altered Female.”

It will have to be a Waltz, No way that fat POS could have the wind to do anything faster.

I don't watch it as the show has never appealed to me. However, unless one has a Nielsen 'box' to report your viewing habits, what you watch won't effect the ratings of a particular show.

After an addition like that, I would have to say that my interest in the show has gone from "mild interest" to "no interest at all."

I didn't know they wanted to make it a circus. No thanks.

transgendered people

Someone needs to nail down the definition of that term once and for all. "Transgendered", for all I thought I knew, was different for "transsexual". (Hmm, spell-check says double-s. Didn't know that either...)

Transgendered, I've been informed, perhaps incorrectly, was supposed to apply to those who were "confused" or something about their identity. No, I haven't gotten a decent definition for the term that hasn't sounded like a mental disorder which needed treatment or therapy not understanding and acceptance.

This show used to have well known celebrities. It has degenerated into having unknown competitors. It is not just Chaz Bono. Take a look at the rest of the unknowns. And then there is Nancy Grace - better described an a highly irritating unknown. Most of the competitors this year are people I do not know or know only vaguely. This could be this show’s last season.

Yes, that Chaz would be great, especially if he runs down the street yelling he is on fire.

DWTN->Dancing With The Naked

When he was first interviewed around the time he joined SNL, Will Farrell (sic?) said he did use drugs.

Claritin, I think it was. (Heh...)

Chaz Bono's addition to the show has already yielded strong reaction -- some of it ugly.

Some of it ugly?!?

Chaz is all ugly!

"I’m proud to say that I have survived without ever seeing an episode of dancing with the stars or American Idol."

I have to admit that I watched DWTS once when Paul McCartney's ex was on. I had a morbid fascination with seeing whether her peg leg would fly off while dancing. To my amazement, it didn't!! And she wasn't half bad at dancing.

You can bet that ABC has already done market research and has found that having Chaz BOno on the show would increase viewership.

I do not want to nail down the trans-whatever definitions or any of that. I really don’t want to think about any of it.

I want to live and let live, but don’t want to have this forced down our throats.

I have to wonder if ABC has an agenda, to put out this trans-whatever person, and dare anybody to say anything about he/she/it. The way political correctness works, we’re all assumed to be liberal, and if we’re good liberals, we won’t say anything. Only evil Neanderthal bigots would say anything, according to politically correct ideology.

And maybe ABC wants to incite controversy, to pump up ratings. They either want to prove how liberal they are, or inflate the ratings.

I want to see if that inane comedian, Kathy Griffin, chastises Chazz Bono over her/his morbid obesity. She mercilessly went after Bristol Palin over weight.

Imagine going through your entire life not acknowledging, whether willingly or not a simple fact we all take for granted. Look in a mirror and ask yourself: Who am I?

And not able to answer it.

And the medical industry has failed her.

Agree completely. The Hippocratic Oath says "I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone."

Any "surgeon" who destroys healthy tissue on the whim of an arguably disturbed individual should have his license reviewed.

And I won't be surpassed if "Chas" has his/her operation reversed.

There have been a number of these Transsexuals who changed their mind and reversed the operation.

And, just my opinion, alot of whom regret their decision but didn't have the $$$ to reverse the procedure and couldn't live with themselves ... literally and killed themselves.
