Chaz Bono

Can Soon Tie Knot

6/12/2009 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chaz BonoChaz Bono can do something as a man which she could never do as a woman in California -- marry her partner.

At a point during the gender change -- typically when breasts are removed -- the subject can go to court and ask a judge to legally change his/her sex. It's discretionary on the part of the judge in determining when the person switches sex and is entitled to a legal change, but typically it's when the breasts are removed.

Judges typically do not require a genitalia switch as a prerequisite to a sex change.

Chaz has been in a committed relationship for several years. Therefore, what Chaz could never do now -- marry his partner -- he can do when the law acknowledges he is indeed a he.

Exact same person -- totally different result. Go figure.

She’ll always be a woman no matter how she surgically changes herself. It’s in her DNA. X and Y chromosomes? Remember Biology 101? I think it’s tragic that a person can be so unhappy with themselves that they’ll permanently butcher their appearance because they think that will make them happy.

To the people who remember the little girl on her parents’ tv show, she’ll always be “Chastity”, regardless of her appearance. As a parent, I really feel for her mother. That's her only daughter.

I just read that Chastity or Chaz, whatever, had a hysterectomy a long time ago. She was having female problems according to the statement. I'll say.

barry Gordy is genius    

How ironic. Her mother is an embodiment of feminine sexuality and she...
well, looks rather manly.

I'd rather bone her mother. Seriously.

So, in essence, Chaz has lived 40 years of life as a man trapped in a woman's body. How sad. If this transgender surgery is what will make him happy and able to live a full life, then fine. Am I paying for it as a taxpayer? No. Does this impact my personal happiness? Not at all. Live and let live.

This is crazy. I'm 100% supportive of gay marriage, but I think transsexuals are another thing altogether. Transsexualism is an imbalance, homosexuality is ingrained.

whaaaaaat?    

"Exact same person -- totally different result. Go figure"

Really? EXACT same? I don't think so...re-read the article that you wrote, Einstien- you wrote about the changes it had to go thru to get to this point...so that would be a NUH UH on the exact same person-thing.

The situaiton has gone beyond ridiculous!
