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.

Who made you God giving you the power to judge others. I will give you a hint, your NO ONE to judge others.
All the caps were not nessacary. God does not judge us by being male or female. He may judge someone who killed others, or harmed other people. Chaz did not harm anyone, and i am sure he can care less what you think.
It seems to me for your judgement on people , God will judge you not in the best of light.

55. ANYBODY WHO CHANGES THEIR GENDER NEEDS TO ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS BECAUSE GOD MADE THEM THE WAY HE WANTED THEM TO BE. THIS INDIVIDUAL WAS BORN A GIRL AND SHOULD HAVE STAYED A GIRL. EVERYBODY WHO SAYS THIS IS DUE TO A BIRTH DEFECT OR THEY WERE BORN WITH A PROBLEM IN THE BRAIN REALLY BETTER THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE SAYING BECAUSE THEY ALL WILL STAND BEFORE GOD AND ANSWER FOR SAYING THESE THINGS AND MAKING OTHERS BELIEVE IT TOO. HATE TO BURST YOUR SO CALLED CRAZY BUBBLE BUT YOU WERE NOT BORN LIKE THIS OR BORN WITH A BIRTH DEFECT. THINGS IN OUR ENVIRONMENT


IS WHAT'S MAKING INDIVIDUALS ACT OUT AND SUFFER FROM SICKNESS. GOD DON'T MAKE MISTAKES. HUMAN BEINGS MAKE MISTAKES AND THIS IS A BIG MISTAKE FOR SOMEONE TO DO. DON'T HATE YOU AS A HUMAN BEING CANNOT STAND THE ONES WHO HAVE MADE YOU BELIEVE THIS WAY. CANNOT BLAME THIS ON BEING BORN WITH IT, IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO DO THIS OR SOMEONE ELSES CHOICE FOR YOU, OR YOU HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED TO BELIEVE ITS ALRIGHT TO DO. HOPE THESE INDIVIDUALS ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM GOD BEFORE THEIR JUDGMENT DAY COMES FROM GOD. HAVE A COPY OF THIS.

Can he/she get an erection or does he/she (it?) need a little pump to get going, or is her new little friend purely decorative? Does anyone know?

Ya know, Chaz Body Mass Index is actually better for medical reports and health insurance. Instead of being however tall and 200lbs as a woman, he BMI is lower because she falls into the man catagory now...she could actually come out as fit? TMZ get on this!!!! random thought.

to poster #50 . below is a copy of your comments and i would like to tell you that you have NOT one fact in your comments.

When Chasisty was younger she sure did not dress like Cher. She worked in the gay community was a writer for a gay magazine.
Chaz dad knew before Cher, that Chaz was gay. He accepted her for who she was.
Your analysis is so far off. Cher being the unique person she is had a hard time accepting Chaz was gay , but she did and she supported her all the way.
I grew up Cher was my idol. I read everything i could and cher from what i know was married 2 times one to Sonny and then to Greg Allman.
She was not whorng it all over town.The bagelboy was a interesting time in Cher's life. But i do not see how you can say Cher is at fault.
Personally, you have NO INFO that is fact.



50. I have sympathy for Chaz Bono; also Cher's son by one of the Allman brothers. Both are mixed up about their sexuality and I
lay the blame at Cher's feet. How can a little girl grow up watching her mother's outlandish costumes and sexual gyrations and
stay normal. She probably thought the way her mother dressed and acted was the way she had to be if she wanted to be a woman. She knew she wouldn't be comfortable looking and acting that way; so she decided she must be a man born into the wrong body. As for the Allman boy, he had the normal feelings of a boy but when he possibly was attracted to his sexy mother, it scared the hell out of him. From what I've read, he likes to dress and act like a woman. A good resolution to his mother/son dilemma is to become like his mother by becoming a woman. No charge for my analysis.

How sad. No matter which hormones she takes, no matter what body part she has surgically altered, no matter how she dresses, no matter what name she calls herself, every cell in her body will still always carry the two X chromosomes. In other words, she will always be a girl.

Reality didnt have much room in Cher's and Chastity's life. Cher was Armenian but wouldnt admit it, her real name was Cherilyn Sarkisian, but she pretended to be American Indian, she used the last name of LaPierre, one of 7 of her mothers husbands. Her mother used a made up name of Georgia Holt, not her real name. Chastity's Armenian grandfather wasnt welcomed in Cher's life. Sonny was married 4 times. He had 4 kids, Chastity is one of 4. He had Christy by wife no. 1, Chastity by wife No. 2 (Cher), none by Susie Coelho, wife no. 3, and 2 more by Mary, Wife no. 4. Cher was 16 when she met him, he was already big in the music business, he made her a star and she cheated on him after they were married. Her marriage to Greg Allman ended soon, drugs were blamed. Cher had her ass tattoed and showed it off, she had her Bagel Boy boyfriend, not much older than Chastity. I would imagine all of that had to be so confusing for Chastity. How could she compete with her mother? why bother? easier to go the other way! God doesnt make mistakes. People do. And sometimes Mothers do.

That really is quite sick. I think "he" has a girlfriend too. She must be a lesbian. I can't believe judges are legally bound to sign off on gender reassignment.

It's psychological what could have happened to anyone who changes their gender. A rape, molestation, sexual abuse over a long time period by someone who they closely knew is most likely. If someone is abusing you in that way over a lengthy period of time and you are too young to stop it or to say no because you have a fear of harm. You repress this and try and oppress it but it doesn't go away in your mind. So the only way to accept it is to change who you are as if it never happened to that person you are changing from. So to him, as Chaz, it never happened and you can go on with your life. But hopefully she had therapy about it and talk to let it out. Because that's the real damage and why people do a gender change.

You can add or remove a penis, but if the chromosomes are XX you are female, XY you are male...no matter how you "feel".
The only true screwed up people are the ones I've seen that are XXY
