Chaz Bono on 'Dancing'

I'll Have a 'POSITIVE IMPACT'

On Kids with Gender Dysphoria

9/6/2011 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090611_chaz_videoChaz Bono believes his stint on "Dancing with the Stars" will have a "positive impact on kids with gender dysphoria" -- and says it's "crazy" that people are boycotting the show.

Chaz appeared on "Good Morning America" and told George Stephanopoulos, "When I was growing up, if I would have seen someone like me on a show like this, it would have made all the difference in the world."

In the end, Chaz says he's just "a regular guy."

This is his personal life.
HE HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING WONDERFUL.
HE SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY RECOGNITION.
HE SHOULD JUST GO AWAY AND LIVE HIS LIFE.
DON'T BOTHER ME WITH YOUR PROBLEMS.

Gee you can see how the Salem Witch Trials must have occurred! Shame on all of you. Regardless of Ms. Bono's mental issues who are you to cast the first stone? To be so unkind seems to be the spirit of this world and I would be scared for her if she ever got lost or her car broke down! What? are all of you going to do? Hit her with a brick? again Shame on all of you! Even Christ Jesus forgave the murder! Again maybe you all need to consecrate on your own moral compass's! If you don't approve of her choice then don'*****ch the stupid show! as the bible says "ignore what is Bad" No wonder this country cant fix its problems no meeting of the minds because the minds are full of Hate and discontent!

This woman is so delusional. She's just a lesbian who wants to be a man. This is so sick and yes, thank God for freedom of speech so that those of us who think this is sick can say SO!

Conservative a-hole parents breed conservative a-hole children. This current generation was raised when education was at it's lowest. Ignore the comments while we move into the future.

"will have a "positive impact on kids with gender dysphoria".....Chaz needs to re-think that one.

If she/he were going on a speaking engagement and made that statement it would make more sense.

I doubt if kids even watch DWTS show and if they did how would her/him dancing on it make a positive immpact on kids with gender dysphoria.

Newest studies say that 38% of Europeans are mentally disturbed. How many in the US will be labeled as well?

Feel very sorry for the Chaz person, but when Chaz has had the best mental and physical healthcare that money can buy, the poor thing should sue every medical and quasi-medical professional involved.

"I have a positive impact on kids....."

That statement defies logic.

"It" is a fool who lives in a transgender world.

I'm sorry but I don't think there is anything positive about telling people with a mental disorder that they can fix it by cutting off body parts and gluing on other body parts.

Chas, if you had seen someone like you on TV as a kid, you would have been FREAKED out and hid under the bed. How about if you had not been raised by a couple of narcissists in Hollywood, if you had been given a fairly normal name, if you'd had some regular folk in your world, you would have been a lot better off. I'm really sorry for you. People don't hate you, they are repulsed by what you have done to yourself. Why did you hate being a woman? What did you associate that with that was so loathsome?

Quoting from the Gloria Alldead thread:

And people who feel their limbs don't belong to them want them amputated, and go to great lenghts to accomplish that. But since their "feelings" determine their identity and satisfaction, we should pay for them to have their limbs amputated, give them drugs afterwards to be "happy" with their choice, and fit them with new prosthetics to get around. Yeah, makes sense to me too. Look up "apotemnophilia". Next you now, the shrinks will be saying we ought to do just that since we've been so "successfull" with surgical intervention with transgenders. "Feelings" are not always meant to be indulged. Sometimes, you learn to live a happy life in spite of your "feelings", which change over time.


Very wise.

So Dee,
your going to show Ms. Bono the way? and every other person who dosnt fit your expectations? pretty harsh! I didn't know you were of such perfect stock! The same thing was said at the Salem Witch Trials and we all know what happened to them! as they say good intentions pave the way to Hell! Also there are wars that start out with the same thing either you believe or die I think Hitler professed he new the correct way so please transgendered or not Lesbian or not what ever?! your soap box is full of holes.
