Skip to comments.Chaz Bono: America 'really needs' 'him' on 'Dancing With the Stars'

The viewing public might be split on Chaz Bono's participation on the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars," but the way he sees it, his inclusion on the show is just what the doctor ordered for this country.
Reacting to the criticism he's faced sine the Season 13 cast was announced last week, Bono told ABC News, "It's made me realize I'm really glad I'm doing this, because America really needs to see this."
The 42-year-old only child of Cher and Sonny Bono added, "You know, it just kind of shows why for me it's important to be on the show, because so little still is known about what it means to be transgender. And there's so many just completely inaccurate stereotypes and thoughts that people have."
Bono, who was born Chastity Bono and underwent gender-reassignment surgery last year, ignited passions among "Dancing With the Stars" fans on Monday with the announcement that he'd be competing on the series. Many of the show's faithful expressed their displeasure over the choice on the series' message board.
"When I heard that Chaz Bono was going to be on, I was sick," went one typical anti-Bono tirade. "Not that I have anything personally again her/him, I just don't want that lifestyle choice continually flaunted in the media esp ABC."

Perhaps in 2011 it’s appropriate that our country celebrate a mutilated psycho freak.
This is so nauseating.
I don’t need to see it and I don’t plan on it. Of course, I wouldn’t be watching whether Chastity was on or not.
Did he have a Special Purpose attached already?
Where did the”HIM” come from?I think he means it.As in America really needs it.Which we don’t.
That show is not a favorite of mine anyway so it’s NO Great Loss if I don’t see it.
Yeah, we really need to see it. There is still hope that we can survive and pull through this mess. Maybe Chaz can finish the job.
Dancing with wolves.
The men on that show wear make up and orance around in pretty costumes....not sure Chaz is breaking any “transgender” ground on the show....
I’m old enough to remember the “Sonny and Cher” show and saw Chaz when he (it) was a beautiful little blond girl. It is sad that she has turned into a nauseating freak. Even sadder that some people celebrate its transformation. Honestly, would really rather Chaz go into obscurity and not trouble the rest of us with his existence.
I’ve never watched the show, but guess that if America doesn’t vote for her, we will be homophobes? Isn’t that the way liberalism works? Their rules aren’t based on performance.
Chaz is following in her mom’s footsteps, being an attention whore.
This is simply one more reason for Americans to turn off their televisions and let the Freak Show play to an empty house.
How to make an ugly boy out of a butt-ugly girl. Take one mountain of ugly girl, sew a monkey's testicles and penis on her and voila! She's a he-man. Transgendering Cher is more difficult. There are those tiny breasts to remove.
Sold by the local Snap-On tool sales rep.
Having a fake penis is hardly (npi) the main ingredient to making a 'him'. Maybe the show should be renamed "Writhing with Serpents".
Exactly why the best thing to do is ignore it.
Nothing enrages the radical gay and lesbian crowd more than indifference.
Like what? If anything, this confirms the stereotype I have, which is that transgenderism isn't just some private personal thing but actually seeks a reaction from everyone around them. She wants everyone to be involved in her personal melodrama. If she really wanted to undo a stereotype, she would go away and just be some anonymous dude.
flowerplough: “ ...America really needs to see this,” it said.
You and I agree on a lot of things, but I pity her. She’s not an “it.” She’s a person who seriously needs help. We live in a bizarro world where people have simply declared the abnormal normal. How in the world will the sick ever get better in a world where sickness is the norm?
Chastity, you can change your name to Chaz, mutilate the body the Lord gave you, and pump yourself full of hormones, but you can never change the fact that you were born female and will die female.
The majority of Americans think the same way. Homosexuality, especially when the homos mutilate themselves in an attempt to be some one else, is repulsive.
