Chaz Bono

Today I'm a Man, Baby

5/6/2010 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chaz Bono Completes Gender Reassignment SurgeryChaz Bono is now a man ... legally and otherwise.

Cher's newly-minted son showed up to court today in Santa Monica, where a judge granted Chaz' petition for a gender and name change.

According to documents filed in March, Chaz underwent an "irreversible surgery" on September 23, 2009 to change his "sex characteristics from female to male."

In the docs, Chaz's doctor said, "Chaz Bono has completed his gender reassignment surgery."

It's like a transgender Bar Mitzvah!

Sad to see so many homophobic, narrow-minded comments. I would have thought that with it being 2010 there would be more tolerant, understanding people out there. I am married with children and I am teaching them all to be accepting and compassionate to EVERYONE, not just people "like us". Too bad more people can't be as mature and open-minded. I wish Chaz all the best in his new life.

I so agree, Dawn. The close-mindedness makes me sad. If he's happy, why judge him? We're all human.

Transgender is a very special condition that can't be "dealt with". You feel, from childhood, that you are born in the wrong body, and it never goes away. Never ever. You are not a lesbian female, which is something completely different, you are actually a man in a woman's body. If you have this condition 100%, the only way you can deal with it is changing sex legally and with an operation. And even if you can obviously not have really working male private parts, this is still what a real transgender woman prefers to do.



I am certain Chaz is very relieved and happier now than ever and feeling he is finally truly himself. All the best to him!

Chaz is a girl and will remain so. Chaz is unhappy and totally self-alienated and will remain so. End of story.

I guess since he had the surgery and is now legally considered male, he is a heterosexual. He is dating a female. Just wondering, if they decide to have children, will they tell them about daddy being born a woman. And, if it's possible, will "Chaz" become another "pregnant man" and have children? Why couldn't she had just been happy being a lesbian and staying female? What difference does it make what your name is or what gender you are legally recognized as. If she was truly happy with her life, she wouldn't have had to make these drastic changes.
