8. 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 Posted at 2:10AM on Sep 22nd 2009 by smorbie Smorbie you are dumb as a box of rocks. Chaz was born 100% FEMALE! If your heart and brain tell you that your gender is wrong...than you have a mental condition! Not a physical one that warrants going and changing the sex you was given at the time of frigging conception! Now if Chaz was born with messed up DNA and doctors find that she produces a lot of male hormones and has internal testicles. Oh yes then i agree that whoever suffers from that condition has the right to change their sex. But chaz is just a Gay woman who wants a mans D$$k between her legs. This isn't gonna fix anything and she needs mental help ASAP! People who go out and do this are messing the world up! I feel bad for anyone who suffers from a real medical condition and i do have sympathy for those who really need the gender change. But Gay people born 100% male or female shouldn't be allowed to go change their sex...JUST CAUSE THEIR HEART OR MIND SAYS...HEY I CRAVE THE SAME SEX!

A sex change operation will NEVER actually change your sex. It's nothing but mutilation. You can't change DNA no matter how hard you try. She will ALWAYS be a "she".

It will be called: "I don't care if I ordered a steak...I want it with candy sprinkles!"

On a serious note...Chas should hit up a quality fat farm and dietician and get down to being the hottie she can be...THEN decide if she wants to be a man. In looking at her I have to believe a good part of her wanting to be a man is from her being unhappy as a woman ...and how can she ever be happy being a woman looking as she does? Her weight causes a low self esteem in her femininity and rather than deal with that issue she figures she'll just run away and hop the fence.
