Chaz Bono

Fearless with the Change

11/19/2009 2:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chaz Bono debuted his new look this morning -- and said since he started transitioning from female to male, "Life is just great now."

111909_chaz_abc_still
Cher and Sonny Bono's daughter-turned-son was on "GMA," where he called his sex change "the best decision I've ever made" because he's now "living the life I've always wanted to live."

Chaz is now only eight months into a years-long process.

He is overweight because of the hormones he's taking- leave him alone! What makes a person is not what their body is- it's your mind and personality that makes you who you are. He's always been a male in his mind, and now he has a body that fits him. Kudos for doing it, that takes guts... especaily in the limelight.

I just can't understand why he (former she) has to shout sex change to the world. Wouldn't you think he (she) would want to keep it a private family matter just between loves ones. But to shout it to the world leades me to suspect there is a lot more to this than we know. I suspect trying to stick it to Cher more than anything.

TMZ hits a new low    

I haven't watched the video nor did I see GMA, but as open minded as I am, and yeah I remember seeing her on TV all my living days as a kid, I don't know how you go from girl to woman to lesbian to straight man.

Is she now saying she's a straight man? Because what I have read, she says that she thought she was just a lesbian and liked girls, and identified with boys. But now with the transgender surgery and this transformation and still with the woman girlfriend, is she really a straight guy?

I feel sorry for Chaz. There is so much going on here that could have been helped by more attention, a better diet, a career of some kind and less spotlight. This seems beyond extreme to me.

I am apalled at the ignorance, intolerance and just plain stupidity some of you haters are demonstrating.........get over urselves and don't judge. God has a sense of humor and maybe some day, one of your own children or loved ones will be going thru this and you can either accept them and love them unconditionally, or just continue living with your hatred festering inside of you. You judgemental idiots make me sick......you are the TRUE abomination.

Let me explain, since the "straight" world seems to be "Confused".

Have you ever known someone or had a member of your family, male or female, that was very effeminate, or "Butch" acting?? And you maybe knew this from a very young age of that person? Now, it could be your son, daughter, brother, sister....
Well, Some gay men are what you call very "straight Acting" (a woman's nightmare)and to look at them or to hear them speak, or act, you would never assume they were "GAY". Women sometimes can hide this better than the average male homosexual. Sometime, there are girls, or boys, that act VERY VERY much the "other way", and they are obviously homosexual. If they feel like all there lives they haven't been comfortable in their own skin so-to-speak, they decide to have a sex change because at least the outside will match up with how they feel on the inside.
Now, this may not appeal to the average person, and most people cannot understand or are willing to accept this because most of us have come to accept ourselves whatever the package. and that's a good thing.
I'm certain Chaz was probably NEVER molested as a child. Sonny & Cher were very protective parents, albeit very "homo-insensitive" like most parents of homosexuals. which is ironic considering they were children of the 60's and in the entertainment business. and GAYS MADE CHER....from her following to her clothes (thank you Bob Macke).
So one should not assume that just because she decides to re-assign her given gender that she is suffering from some sort of childhood trauma due to molestation. quite the contrary, you probably won't find her dead on her bed of an over-does, and she is probably more happy now than she's ever been.
What I find funny is that most straight women out there have NO IDEA that their men are capable of sucking another man's C#CK, just because they can Screw them...!
the "DOWN-LOW" is more prevalent than you think ladies...
but for men, they LOVE the idea that their women/wives/girlfriends might be into other women...Like FERGIE.
SEXUALITY IS WHAT IT IS. And the world needs to get over it once and for all.
That ends your sex-ed lesson for today!

Cher my heart goes out to you. I can't fathom having a daughter mutilate her body as she has done. Sonny must be turning over in his grave. Chaz, dear one - you're one messed up chick. What's next for you - Scientology? geeesh

I predict this change will NOT fix whatever it is that is haunting her-him. This is one unhappy person, and I probably really don't want to know why.

Chaz, I truly do wish you well.

You phony hypocrite, Trizzle. You probably have sons and you probably MUTILATED your sons against their will at birth.

At least Chaz is an adult able to take control HIS body and either _leave_ _it_ as it is, or _change_ it if HE sees fit.

Sonny would be against his DAUGHTER having the SEX change...IF she would have a GASTRO-BY-PASS or The LAP BAND done to lose the wt. she might would change her mind& feel better being a woman....
