Sonny and Cher's child transitioning from female to male Chastity is *Chaz*
CNN ^ | June 11th, 2009

Posted on 06/11/2009 8:29:19 PM PDT by TaraP

CNN) -- Chastity Bono, gay-rights activist and child of performer Cher and the late entertainer and politician Sonny Bono, is in the early stages of transitioning from a female to a male and will be known as Chaz, his spokesman said Thursday.

Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," Howard Bragman said in a written statement.

"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago."

Someone's decision to transition does not necessarily mean they are undergoing gender reassignment surgery, and in many cases they do not, said Mara Keisling, executive director of the Washington-based National Center for Transgender Equality.

Yeah I do think he’s grown up in recent years.
I was just reminded, in the recent Letterman/Palin flap
on, of all places ,the NOW website (!), that way back in Clinton’s first term, maybe first year, Limbaugh held up a picture of Chelsea and referred to her as “the White House dog”. Now that is cheap! NOW put Letterman into their Media Hall of Shame, and made reference to the Limbaugh remark at the end of their piece.

I am a conservative but I think maybe God makes a few mistakes when programming a few people. Based on “her” looks - maybe God made a mistake here. I feel sorry for “her” having Cher as a mother and losing Sonny as a father.

Who’s the organ donor?

No donor is required. A genital reconstructive procedure is performed using the clitoris, which is enlarged by androgenic hormones. Then the urethra is rerouted through the phallus to allow urination through the reconstructed penis. The labia majora are then united to form a scrotum, where prosthetic testicles can be inserted.

OK folks, lets keep it down to a dull roar while she transitions.

Seriously, These are people that desperately need some psychiatric help. Instead we are supposed to “celebrate” their mental illness.

I wrote the exact same thing on another board - I’m so confused. I watched her on tv when I was a little kid, at the end of the show, her standing there while her parents sang ‘I got you babe’. She was so cute. Now she wants to use the mens room. All I can say is, good luck Chaz.

Here is a question, if I purchase a Pontiac Fiero, and then rebody it with a kit to make it look like a Ferrari, is it a Ferrari or a Fiero? How can someone become a member of the other sex? She will always be a she, no matter what she looks like.

I think 80% of lesbians are psychological rather than biochemical gays

I believe you are being VERY generous in your numbers. more like 99.95% of lesbians are that by simple choice. another 0.04% chose that "life" because of gender-bending influences, and 0.01% are that way because of some genetic or biological screw-up (what some rude people call hermaphrodites -those born with organs of both genders and those who have seriously screwed up hormonal systems).

Nope. God doesn't make mistakes, no matter how much we would like to blame Him. The defects and screw ups are directly tied to sin and the effects of it. Personally, I believe Adam and Eve were genetically "perfect", but when sin entered in, things began to go wrong.

“A lot of lesbians are heavy. I don’t know why.”

They have fear of men, eat till they balloon and are able to hide from the males in an unsexy ‘fat’ suit. Feeling unloved they go lesbo.

Because lesboland is where the lowest of the low self esteemers hang out.

Any girl who cannot be approved by male standards (as men do tend to judge a woman on her body type), if they go to lesboland will find they can find a date and a mate, with another girl, who is also afraid of men.

There was an episode or two of Charles in Charge where nice guy Charles got hit on the head and became a jerk named Chaz. I think Chasity’s been beaned a few times as well. Or, she ate paint chips as a child.

“Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity,” Howard Bragman said in a written statement.”

Courageous?, Those who landed on Omaha Beach were courageous,those who served in the South Pacific, sailed on ships of the Murmansk run were courageous. Any man or woman who ever wore the uniform of any of the armed forces had courage.

I care not what Chaz, Chastity, Promiscuity or whatever name she goes by today does behind closed doors.

Choosing whether to have a male, female, or a power tool for a sex partner does not take courage!

>>> A genital reconstructive procedure

More like a mutilation it sounds like to me.

absolutely no way they can make it remotely close to the real thing.

Gives new meaning to the term “go F- yourself” though.
