Chaz Bono
has triggered predictable controversy after signing on to do "Dancing with the Stars" -- just as producers hoped. So what will be the fallout? We gotta ask ...

Yeah.. it's a wonderful idea that we as a society just blindly accept and encourage INSANE people that believe they have another sex trapped inside their body and the only way they can ever be happy is to have themselves surgically altered into another sex. This isn't a gay or straight issue.. it's a mental health issue.

people should never undo what God has done. God mad Chaz a female. Neither Chaz nor the doctors should change that. I hate to be them on judgement day.

Bono is 42 yrs old, not the cute little Chastity that was on the tv show so long ago. Bono has a 35 yr old brother (a real male) born to Cher and Greg Allman. I don't know what it takes to "legally" become a male, but all Bono has done is have breasts, uterus, ovaries removed and taking male hormones. No surgery has been done to add any pseudo male anatomical parts. I don't understand this "legally a man" thing. Is it just because Bono says so? Like a name change?

Too bad that DWTS goes for shock value now instead of actually spending effort challenging people known for their outstanding work in other fields. As far as I know, Bono is unemployed, never had a job, any education? Lives on Cher's money, I guess, and maybe inherited a lot from Daddy Sonny.

I know Harvey has his own homo agenda going on, so this Bono thing would be right up his alley. However, those of us who don't agree with some of these things are not crazy, ignorant, uneducated or anything else. It is clear that many of us have more education than Cher (high school dropout) or C. Bono (no idea about education). Liberals are so mean to other people. Their way or the highway. No room in their little minds for other ideas, the possibility that they might be wrong from time to time. They should spend more time seriously listening and thinking.

I agree that Chaz has no business being on DWTS. Not because of his sexual preferance (or non=preferance), but because of the fact that he is in no way a star. I have never seen him in anything but his parents' show in the 70's. What made him qualify as a star? I think that DWTS is consumed with sensationalism and shock value. Stick with what got them the #1 rated show.

two cents    

ABC says there's no agengy yet another spokesman yesterday said she was chosen for "tolerance". Hence an agenda. I'm sick of having freaks shoved down out throats. DWTS used to be a safe show where you could just have fun watching and voting. Now, it's not going to have anything to do with dancing but if chaz/cher can get all their minions to vote no matter how he/she dances. Cutting off her breasts doesn't make her a woman, she still sits to pee! They took a fun family show and just ruined it for ratings and contraversy. This sort of "stuff" belongs on bravo or some other cable show. Not ABC (A disney family) network. Walt and Sonny are probably both spinning in their graves.

As for those idiots complaining about nancy grace, I will not fault her for seeking justice for those that commit crimes against children.
I hope she wins!! She has stated she is donating ALL of her money she gets to the center for missing and exploited children. Anyone else on this show donating money? What else has any of the others done to make the world a better place?

Why is everyone so up in arms about Chaz Bono?? I can't say I know him very well, other than a story here and there throughout the years, but he looks like a very kind man. Regardless of his sexual orientation or identity, who cares?? Are kids really gonna say OMFG he was a SHE!!! Would they EVEN know?!?!?! It's about damn time, people just let other people live their lives how they see fit. I'm comfortable in my gender identity; as a she, he wasn't so he changed. Let the man dance and have a good time! I typically don'*****ch DWTS but you know what?? For Chaz Bono I WILL! Just so he has support from people who just want him to do well. =) Give em hell Chaz, dance the socks off Nancy Grace!!

It's clear that "real stars" don't care about DWTS, which is why ABC picks people who are simply on the D-list....or in some cases a bunch of nobody's who think their stars, just so ABC can get a ratings boost.

If you hate the show so much don'*****ch it, and don't give the network ratings, simple as that.

Are you f-ing serious??? I didn't think I would see as many negative comments as I have. What happened to enlightenment? First off it's called DWTS because it's people of mild fame, dancing with stars!!! IE stars of the dance floor. Nancy Grace is a star?? Some random football player?? Oh but Kim K, YEA she's a REAL star because she has some dumb reality show people are stupid enough to watch??? Last I checked being the offspring of a famous person, MADE YOU FAMOUS!! Just because you are "physically" one way, does NOT mean you are not "mentally" another way! I am a man, but I will be the first to tell you, that I have the emotional range of a woman, I know more about sex and the city than my wife does! While I am comfortable being a man, many people out there aren't. Who are we, or should I say "YOU ALL" to talk badly or negatively about someone's life choice?? Does it affect you? No! Does it concern you? No! Do you even think Chaz Bono gives to craps what you all think?? NO!!

For all you idiots talking about God and this and that, God or your creator, whatever the hell you call him/her/it/the thing, gave us free will, the ability to make our own decisions and to live OUR lives as we please, free to make our own destinies and shape our own futures. Who the hell are ANY of you to question what another person does, who is "supposedly" made by your God? God made him right? You all admit to that right? So did God, not also make his mind, and has it been proven throughout history that genetic information gets crossed?? Down's Syndrome?? If we correct that with gene therapy, should we not, because it's AGAINST GOD'S WILL!!! Or some other stupid BS?? Where does it end? It's a slippery slope and you all know it!! You're just too blind and ignorant to realize the ultimate truth that we are ALL a part of the one being, we each live out our lives to bring those experiences back. Dammit why are people so dam dumb!
