Chaz Bono

Gender Reassignment Complete

3/29/2010 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a copy of court documents in which a doctor states he performed "an irreversible surgical procedure for the purpose of altering Chaz Bono's sex characteristics from female to male."

Chaz Bono

According to the docs, on September 23, 2009, Dr. Michael Brownstein performed the operation.

The specifics of the procedure are not outlined, but the Dr. says, "Chaz Bono has completed his gender reassignment surgery."

In the "Petition for Change of Name and Gender" filed with the court, Chaz asks for a legal change from female to male.

Wow, you guys are sick. Forget gender, all of these comments make me ashamed to be a HUMAN. Theres no words for the disgust in regards to the things you folks are blabbing about in the comments. You call Chaz's transition disgusting, yet have no disgust towards your own black heart? The human race is a joke, you people should be ashamed of yourselves. Especially the poster "Johnny".. I feel sorry for you, all you have in life is the size of your "johnson". LOL! What a sad life you must live to judge others solely on that, and nothing more. And to the people who keep saying 'God made you a girl! stay a girl".. WHAT? Thats like looking at all of the poor infants born with disease and handicap.. God made them like that too? Give me a break! Mistakes happen. god isnt sitting in heaven choosing to fuck up peoples lives whilst leaving others alone.

As said before I don't care how you cut it she is still Chastity. Sad case of couldn't compete with Mom so lets switch to the other side. Maybe if her famous Mom has spent more time with her she could have helped her, but Mom was a case herself. God makes men and women and their DNA will never change!

Walk in his shoes for 5 minutes and feel the pain & suffering he breathes every moment of his life. It's so easy for narrow minded people to try to judge but fail due to lack of knowledge, if you don't understand then keep quiet as ignorant abuse only creates more unnecessary hate....

I couldn't agree more. Humans are generally disgusting. If ever there were a bunch of vile, untrustworthy, evil, manipulative, reneging, corrupt, greedy, two-faced, prejudiced, anti-life creatures, it would be the average human. I don't give two hoots about what Chaz Bono does or does not do - it's her business. What is offensive are the retarded, spiteful, hateful god worshipping christians who will advocate committing the most brutal and vicious acts against anyone who doesn't support their belief. My comment is to do to them what they want done to others. Have an End Time, but make it so they end and let the world live in peace. Them and the muslims can have all the intolerance they want with each other, beat each other mercilessly, and hopefuly in the end there will be none of them left.

How horrible. What a unimaginable surgery and what kind of doctor would perform this procedure! So sick and irreversible?? Definitely a mental disorder. What happens in the future when she/he decides they made a mistake.Very sad and tragic..YUK

You is as you was born. She has to live with what she has done to herself. I agree, do what you want, but why do you have to tell the world you are freaky? What yo do in your closet is your business, not mine. This is like putting a chevy sticker on a ford, its still a ford.

You will not know what it feels to be ill until you are ill, why judge when you don't know where this illness is originated, our brains control everything and science has not understood yet about the full capacity and composition of human brains. according to science we are mutants and no one has perfect genes. and by the way for those who talk about DNA please check your knowledge cause hormones molecules actually one of very few that can penetrate the cell nucleus and interfere with genes this process is called gene expression,( the hormones will switch on the male features and repress the female's in this case. The man is happy only miserable people hate to see others happy. message to judgmental people u might be born with well defined gender but sure you have other illness or may be you will have one day DON'T BE SO PROUD
