Chaz Bono: America 'really needs' 'him' on 'Dancing With the Stars'
msn ^ | 4 Sep | Kennealy

Posted on 09/05/2011 5:18:10 AM PDT by flowerplough

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

America 'really needs' 'him' on 'Dancing With the Stars'

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.

And there's so many just completely inaccurate stereotypes and thoughts that people have.

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.

She was a beautiful little girl. Her adolescent and adult years were self-hating and that was an ugly thing. Now she’s only mutilated herself and gone over the edge. Have a little pity on her for the sick world she grew up in and the insane choices she has made. She’s lost - plain and simple.

Americans are totally obsessed with sexuality. It is an important and fundamentally private interaction intended to result in children. All this crap of LGBTSVRW is shear insanity. Caigula was nutz brought Rome nothing positive. We need to stop thinking with our groin.

I wonder if she/he would have had this need to transform if she/he were not raised in the cesspool of show business. She/he is not a performer her/himself, so it is not an issue of creative people being “different.” Very rarely do you see this sort of thing among the “general population.”

I never liked seeing her on the Sonny and Cher Show, because she always seemed so sad. Just seeing her made me wonder what was going on in her life to make her so sad. Something happened to that little girl, and it wasn’t good.

The “help” you say Chaz Bono needs will never, in this day and age, be given to her because the psychiatric community no longer considers these sexual aberrations a problem. Quite the contrary, that community would never dare declare homosexuality and all that transgender abominations a mental health issue.

I know that on some subjects I am out there, but I wonder how much of this creatures problems could be traced to having been named Chastity?

I believe that male children need male names and female children need female names.

“... drugs “mom” was doing help screw this girl up”.

I remember Chastity as a little girl (on her parent’s television show). She was so beautiful. I truly wonder, however, if her Mom’s lifestyle didn’t somehow just mess up this person’s mind. Did Chastity define being a “woman” was somehow just like her Mother and chose to not be female because of it? Is this some sort of intense psychological distancing? It just makes me think and wonder what happened to that pretty, little blonde girl with big eyes. Sad.

What Dancing With the Stars needs, like pretty much any TV show, is ratings. It may well get them because Chaz Bono is on the show, who knows? Maybe he’s not a very good dancer.

I actually haven’t seen all that much criticism about this, I honestly don’t think that many people care one way or the other who’s on this show. They’ve had some fairly hideous contestants already, mostly a bunch of has beens and never wases, so this doesn’t really add all that much. But that’s the narrative, right? We’re supposed to be horrified and mean and criticize and then the heroic gay or lesbian or transsexual person triumphs by showing us all how strong and determined he or she is and that the haters are just a bunch of narrow-minded bigots.

The story is that Chastity was molested at the age of eleven by one of her mother’s lesbian friends:
