    Chastity Bono -- Becoming a Man
    Posted Jun 11th 2009 3:21PM by TMZ Staff

    Chastity Bono, civil rights advocate, journalist, author and musician, is in the early stages of changing his gender -- transitioning from female to male, TMZ has learned.

    Bono, the child of legendary entertainers Sonny and Cher, began the process earlier this year, shortly after his 40th birthday.

    "Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," confirmed Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman.

    "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.

    We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time."




    ...personally I find TMZ, vile, worthless, untrustworty and just Trash Media.
    But if it's true - I say Rock On (for her) and good luck!

    That is awesome. The Trans community could use a few more open members in the media.

    Good for him. It takes guts to be openly transgendered, more to get the operation and even more to be in the public eye and do it. I can imagine this wasn't an easy decision given the current political hubbub with gay marriage going on. He has to know that this revelation will be a lightening rod for all the right wing assholes to further their campaign of lies and distortion. The trans community has historically always been at the forefront of our struggle for equality. Despite this, they are often under represented, unappreciated and marginalized by much of the gay community. Maybe a strong well recognized voice will begin to change that.

    Agree about TMZ, but they quote Howard Bragman, who is a very well-respected PR guy and openly gay. I'd say this is legit. Chaz has seemed to struggle in life, so I hope this is the answer for him.

    Sorry and she will still be a she. No matter how medical science is able to help "her" to look like a man. I'm sure as most women who get this done keep their vagina, a female sex and reproduction organ. Still no man is to have a bay either. I women with a vagina, who has made herself look like a man has now had two children.

    Sorry I'm not going to accept a women who had had herself look like a man, into the men's club.

    There is a big difference to being born a homosexual, and having a sex change. Yes Ms Bono is a lesbian, who wont to play the male role.

    Well, it's a good thing your acceptance doesn't count for shit.

    Why go out of your way to persist what you believe over someone else's identity? With all the struggles we gays endure against our legal identities, why can't you see clearly how you're accomplishing towards transgenders what some heterosexuals do unto us?

    Sorry but I apologise for nothing. I was born, not created by medical science. I have taken over 40 years to develop as a male, it didn't happen over night, or via medications, or an operation. I was born.

    Sorry I'm not going to accept a person who was born as a female, into the men's club. I'm not discriminating, nor do I fear them, or go out of my way to beat em up, or abuse em. I'm just not going to accept a person who was born a female into the boys club.

    I once sang with a gay chorus, a few years ago. There was a T in the group, who was being done up to look like a women. I had not issues with that. But when he wanted to sing with the lesbians, they said they did not won't a man in their group.

    yes and look at what the gay left wing does to the gay right wing.

    Non fems do to the fems; so on.

    I was born, a T is created via medications, and maybe an operation or two. Homosexuality is no-longer considered a mental health issue, transgender is.

    Sorry but as a homosexual, a man. I just don't relate to a women making herself look like a man. To me she is that, still a she.

    Do all women accept a man who had made himself look like a women, as a true women; no. How can you live as a women for 20 30 years, then via meds and an operation you are a man over night? In just 30 days I can make you a man.

    but then not all homosexuals are accepting of other homosexuals, look at all the hate post that were created here at RJ, on gay republicans.

    I could introduce you to plenty of people who have had some form of gender reassignment and you'd have no idea that they were born another gender.

    It's easy for you to be dismissive when you haven't felt the pain of being trapped in a body that isn't a fit. I don't understand why some gay men don't "get it." You want people to accept your loving another man even though it's not natural to them, and yet you can't accept a trans person because it's not natural to you? I find that sadly myopic.

    Matey,

    you really are an idiot.
    He's already a man and has spent a lot of time being one trapped inside a body that does not fit how he feels on the inside. He's just fixing it.

    I'm curious on where you stand on an individual that has androgen insensitivity syndrome. These individuals are genotypically male. Their sex chromosomes are XY and have internal testes but phenotypically they appear female so much that they are unaware of their syndrome until they don't have a menstruation cycle. Are these men or are these women?

    Heterosexual men, and Bi too, who breed then split with the mother of their children, and won't custody of their own children, also have fight discrimination for being born a male, as family courts favor women, mothers.

    So we all have a fight, and have to deal with stuff, and not just minority's. Just because I was born a homosexual, I don't see myself as a victim.

    In fact a few years ago in Melbourne Australia a homosexual was to provide his sperm to two lesbians, he did this because he too wonted a child.

    These lesbians did everything to keep this father away from his son, to the point it ended up in a big court battle, where when it was clear the lesbian was going to lose. She went home and killed her child, then herself.

    We all have our battles.

    matey, what you fail to realize is that the composition of a person is much more than the physiological make-up of that person. There is a conscience, an intellect and a personality that significantly comprises who a person is more than what their bodies are made of. Identity is an intangible aspect of a person's psyche. It doesn't have to agree with the physical aspects of that identity; it trumps it.

    There are actually very interesting post mortem studdies of the brains of transgendered people showing very clearly that their brain has grown to that of their internal sex, even if they never actual undergo any of the treatment, surgically or with drugs. Interestingly the brains of homosexuals resemble something more intersexed, with portions both male and female at varying degrees of evolution. This might explain why some men are more feminin than others and why some women are more masculine than others.

    My mother works with the underaged trans community in the oklahoma school district. She teaches the kids that she works with that many cultures view sex and sexuality as having for more than just one, or even two or even three. There are people in Indonesia that believe in the existance of Five different sexes, with infinite sexualities. They feel that these differences ballance the world with that of the spiritual world. In India, there are straight, gay and Hijdra. The Hijdra are not just a different sexuality but a different sex, kinda of like trans gendered in the west. They fulfil a vital religious and ceremonial part in Hindu faith and are in fact their own caste.

    matey, it is also fact that some species of fish and amphibians undergo natural sex changes. With that said, you should check your bias at the door.

    You guys, don't pay any attention to Matey/Pattison. He's just playing the troll to see if he can get you guys to react. It's a game to him, you don't have to play.
