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!

I've rarely seen so many ignorant people. "She" (Chaz) is not "a woman", gender is far more complicated than XX and XY chromosomes. Do you for instance know that a XY person can look like and function like a woman, if the right hormones didn't kick in during pregnancy? Because the female form is the basic form, the individual then is a woman. Without a chromosome test, she may not even know she was destined to be a man.

There are many varieties, but in spite of that many here seem to demand that Chaz not follow his instincts but stay female and suffer, as if he should be punished for something. Ease up! Making the journey he has made takes courage and determination. Be happy for him.

As the old cliche goes, "the grass isn't always greener on the other side". Google the name "Mike Penner".

I am 60 yrs.old. I read what all of you have to say. What we think, does not matter. What matters - is Chaz followed his dream. I hope he finds the identity he is looking for and give the people like me on the sidelines who have worthless opinions about his private life the finger.

Sorry...she's still a chick, albeit a freaky one, but still a female. No matter what she wants to believe or wants me to believe, she was born a female and will remain a female (ugly as heck!).

I wonder how many lab animals suffered with genital mutilation so that sick humans could try to change their identity.

I don't care if he is a man or a woman, JUST LOSE SOME WEIGHT!

Nothing to be proud of! Not what God intended - if he wanted you to be a boy you would have been born a boy! That was all your decision and you will have to face God on judgment day about that!!

I think she just had body issues. Couldn' stay thin - so instead of having to atone to her skinny mom and the media, decided to become a fat man santa-claus (hey, maybe they can hire it for the next sequel). Who's next - Rosie? All kidding aside, both have definite manly like features and probably just needed some thyroid help. No -- instead Chaz changed it's sexuality. I wonder how long it will be before Chaz comes out and says it was a horrible mistake.

Absolutely disgusting in so many ways, not to mention so against what God intended us to be.
