Guess you'd have to walk in (her) shoes when she was female, to discover that he is really male, huh! Hopefully, when it's all said and done, he will lose that weight. I say, give him a break! I'm sure happy to have always enjoyed being a girl. Can't imagine going through anything like that

He is a male. In his heart and his brain he was always male. This is a real medical condition, and I am happy for him that he has finally made the transition so he can live the rest of his life with his mind and body in congruence.

As for what he's done to write a book, how many children of celebrities write books? It's pretty common and many people read them. I would dare say Bono has more interesting things to say (about his parents and growing up male in a female body) than most children who grow up with famous parents.

I think Cher has done a wonderful job of (at least publicly) supporting her son in his decision to fit his body to his mind. She is to be commended. I'm certain that she has known for a long time there was something wrong with her "daughter", and she is probably relieved that her child has found peace. Smorbie
