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.

Is Chastity/Chaz internally gay?
I think that's a big yes.
So what will that do to his/her sexual appetite?
Will he/she drop little miss for a gay man?
Or will he/she claim he/she is now straight.

Will little miss want a new woman soon if she is also truly internally gay?
Or does the gay just go away now?

Not one of you- not ONE of you- who are so opinionated have any idea about any of this. People do not transition in order to bump the system. Gay is not an on off switch. Being a woman or being a man is not about fleshy parts in the first place- so he will not "always be a woman" because of some tissue inside him. And he is not a man just because of a lack of some weight in his chest. He's a man because that's who he is, just as you people are whatever you are "just because". You know why it took 40 odd years for him to come out with this? Because of you people who would do exactly what you've done. It takes courage for people to be themselves when bastards like you are so full of meaningless hate. Just because you haven't experienced what they have doesn't mean that they're wrong or sick, and it's just crude of you to be disgusted. They are people. Just imagine if you were born the wrong sex, but you were the same person you are already. Maybe you'd want to do something about it too. This kind of thing does not come from parenting problems- unlike you lot, since your parents apparently didn't teach you how to love or understand other humans. So if you can't accept, then at least just shut up.
