Skip to comments.Chaz Bono: America 'really needs' 'him' on 'Dancing With the Stars'
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.
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.
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.
...'Dancing with Hermaphrodites'...brought to you by Heshe bars
She/he is more of an "It." It's a Frankenstein monster.
As Pierre the Lumberjack exclaimed, upon discovering that the cute little Indian girl he had married was really the Stooge Curly in disguise: “She’s a HE!!!”
I see the attention whore is still diligently pursuing the quite, private life he said he wanted.
Do you mean there is a correlation between sex and pregnancy? Wow, who knew?
Maybe America, despite the push of the “Gay Agenda” crowd, doesn’t CHOOSE to pay attention to your perversion! Like most lefties they want the power to FORCE their lifestyle on people.
What do the stars get paid for appearing on the show...
That is true. Her chromosomes will always say she is a female. I’m not aware that you can change your DNA to alter your core genetic information.
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.
Wow. That this is even possible .... not to mention promoted.... shows that America has really “jumped te shark”.
In some ways, Chaz Bono is a metaphor for how badly America has gone off the rails.
Maybe they should have a dancing show with all the participants having severe mental illnesses.
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 believe that male children need male names and female children need female names.
I’m pretty sure while in the womb drugs ‘mom’ was doing help screw this girl up.
The number of quotes in that title made me dizzy!
And, by the way, what is “Chaz” Bono the “star” of? (more quotes, more dizzy!)
Oh get over yourself, “Chaz.” You suffer from a mental illness and I won’t be watching you flaunt it.
Repulsive sideshow freak...
and that goes double for her and
Sonny’s little mutant ‘Chaz’
“The 42-year-old only child of Cher and Sonny Bono”. When I read that, it was enough for me.
“... 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.
Attention Whore!, right Cher?
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:
Has this girl ever worked a day in her life?
