Chaz Bono received dig after dig during his performance on Dancing With The Stars.
Now Cher's superstar son has been criticised from some unlikely quarters after Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's transgender son blasted Chaz as a misogynist.
Stephen, 19, born Kathlyn, has hit out at the 42-year-old, who underwent female-to-male gender transition between 2008 and 2010.
Writing on his blog Super Mattachine, Stephen took issue with Chaz's view that transgender people have effectively been born with a 'birth defect' - something Bono said in an interview with the New York Times.
Chaz described being transgender as effectively having a 'mismatched' brain and body, akin to a 'birth defect like a cleft palate'.
But Stephen fiercely disagrees: 'I do not have a birth defect. If you feel like you have a birth defect, fine. Thats how you feel. Go feel that,' he wrote on his blog.
He went on: 'Do not put it onto me. Do not define me that way, and do not define other trans people that way unless they claim that label.'
Stephen continued, by branding Chaz a misogynist and saying that he does no represent the views of the transgender community.
'[Chaz] has appointed himself as the representative of a group of people who are not all like him.
'He has said misogynistic... things about gender. I take particular issue with his comments on trans embodiment and on women.'

40 years ago, this headline would have been written as a spoof in MAD magazine.
How quickly and how far we have fallen...
We live in absurd times. And getting more absurd by the second.
——and in the final analysis, who gives a sh#t what these weirdos do?
I’m so confused.
Good point, Basil.
I lulzed. Heh! Freaks turning on freaks. Perfect.
Stephen or Kathlyn or whatever it is.
That’s what I was gonna say!
Beatty & Benning had a kid that they screwed up? Why did Chaz make national headlines and nothing was reported about this other screwed up person?
Mind-boggling...all of it.
Wouldn’t be surprised if we read about chaz/chastity committing suicide in the future. He/she has now been rejected by the very ‘community’ that he/she wanted to belong.
So Tragic...all of it.
Its sad to say but a lot of people pay more attention to this crap than the issues that really important to them.
I’m sort of half reading this, half paying attention to an event I’m at, and I can’t even begin to wrap my head around this.
What bothers me is that twice this month I have read about transgendered children, both under the age of ten.
We do not even allow children to get plastic surgery at that age! Let alone deciding they are another gender. It is sick and twisted.
