Yeah, no matter how many operations - you are still genetically what you were at birth. She is still a she and also a very disturbed she. She has a mental problem.

I truly believe, deep in the heart of homosexuals and transgenders (whatever that is), they know this perversion goes against every law of nature. That’s why they’ve gone from wanting others to just “accept” them, to now wanting “approval.”

Sorry, not gonna happen. I feel very sorry for “Chaz” Bono. What a sick messed up person. I really hope you lets God change her heart and show her true acceptance and freedom.

Hey, Chaz! Can you play "fireman?" If, you can't then you are not a man.

Good point. In reading the article, I got the feeling we're supposed to think that Cher had no influence over this mess. But there's just no getting away from the name, Chastity, given to her/him by the sex symbol mother.

If there were any significance or unconscious desire attached in naming her child Chastity, it sure backfired.

Very disturbing if you read the whole thing.

At this point in his transition, Chaz is in his “second puberty,” a six- to seven-year process of hormone injections. The medical technology for genital reconstruction surgery (masculine genitoplasty, for a transgender man like Chaz) is still too new, expensive, imperfect and risky for him to opt for “bottom surgery.”

“I am in a holding pattern,” he said. “The payoff just isn’t quite enough. I wish I had a penis, but I am O.K. for now.”

I remember a couple years back when I first got HDTV. I was half watching some show and an interview with Cher popped up. She is approaching 70, but her face is immobile and taut, the work of much, much plastic surgery. The telltale sign was her hands...she clasped them in front of her face and they looked like they belonged to Helen Thomas!

No wonder her kid ended up like this...the parent can't deal with reality and so not save her own daughter from sinking into insanity.

I have a question. Since the treatment to ‘change’ a person's gander includes massive hormonal injections, treatment, with the opposite sex hormones to accomplish the ‘change’ - wouldn't one conclude that it was a hormonal imbalance in the first place that rendered the person to lean the other way? (The whole thing sounds like a giant scientific/medical experiment.)

Therefore, why not treat the person with hormone treatment of the SAME sex and get them back on track - along with counseling?

Oh, right, it’s now against the LAW to counsel anyone regarding this.

God help our country. One of the last societal movements in the collapse of a civilization is the widespread acceptance of homosexuality.

Oh we're there, for sure. I quit praying for our country when the Congress repealed DADT for the boy king. There is no one in the District of Corruption that I feel comfortable praying to lead this country out of its downfall. I will just ride it out and make sure my life is "right" and I am ready.

To say this person is disturbed is an understatement. It seems to me that filling her body with all sorts of chemicals isn’t the solution. She will always be the same person, regardless of what she looks like.

I do wonder, once she completes this so-called “treatment”, and is still “unhappy”, will she insist that the entire mess was the fault of “someone else”, and then insist she be “changed back” to female?

She will never find “acceptance” in society, because she will never find “acceptance” within herself. And the sick b!@#$%^&s at the NY Times are preying on her severe illness, in order to push their own bizarre and sick agenda.

God help us all!

Fascinating article. Good for him. I hope he’s happier now — seems to be.

I knew a girl like this in middle school. Although no one talked about it, we all knew she was really a he. No matter what pretty lace or feminine pinks her mother provided her to wear, she was still all boy and always seemed so uncomfortable. I can’t help hoping that “Denise” is now Dennis and has found some comfort and happiness.

The bible passages that most apply here are those dealing with eunuchs.

Thousands of years later the surgery is better, but as Solomon pointed out “there is nothing new under the sun.”

No matter how many surgeries she has, or how many chemicals she puts into her body, she will never have a Y chromosome. Therefore, I refuse to refer to her as a “he”. She is a mentally disturbed individual who needs help, not encouragement.

Unless they can erase all those pesky XX chromosome pairs and replace them with XY chromosome pairs this person will always be a woman. A physically mutilated woman, but still a woman. The genetics can't be changed.

Chaz is a basically a man with a vagina and a (reasonably, I guess) hot girl friend who must like men with vaginas instead of penises.

Sorry, the DNA still has two X chromosomes. You can dress it up all you want, but you can’t change that!
