I feel that the judges are losing site of the fact that this is a dance competion not a fashion show or a judgement call about looks or weight. Whe these stars are choosen the show knows who they are and what they look like. Comments have been made about weight...Chas being a penguin and Max's partner being too athletic well that is who they are. There is so many comments about Chas and Max that it is becoming sickening. Judges are accountable for their unfar remarks also. Len..if you have been in this business for fifty years maybe it is time for a new judge and shame on you for your comment..they were wrong also. Maybe the judges should have to do a dance and be judged...that would be an interesting show.

LOOK . bottom line. alot of people are open about being gay in this age . and media has learned to accept it and we can treat each other like god wants us to with love . christians will treat each other with love and compassion wether they are gay or not but that does not change the fact it is wrong.

Bravo to Rank! . freedomof speach and freedom of expressions works both ways . it goes back to that beauty pagent contestant what she thought about gay marriage. she honestly and NON-Hatefully. answered her opinion. and she was branded to be all these awful things she was not. People just accept that homosexuality may be accepted in entertainment and media but it will never change that is what it is WRONG.

Sad how everyone is all for freedowm of speach and freedom of expression UNTIL a Christian speaks up and shares their opinions according to Biblical Truth.

"I as well am tired of being criticized for my opinions concerning what dishonors GOD...Believers are not all hateful and choose His way instead of the ways of the world. That is our God given right. This has not been set up as entertainment but a ploy to infiltrate the audience with homosexuality and perversion to be accepted. No, I won't be watching DWTS this year. And yes, we do pray for these people to accept Gods way and repent and turn from their sins." Amen! Good word!

It is just as much of an abomination as it ever was no matter how much the unbelieving unregenerate majority condone and accept it.

The mysteries of why one chooses to be a man or woman is unknown truly at this point . but please don't accuse those who do not agree with the choices and for those who stil choose to follow gods ways. and yes God is the ultimate judge. but that does not mean those who disaprove should be happy and pleased that this is becoming a media acceptance and told that we are bigots . that is not right either. Please people just LOVE GOD and bring him more into our lives.

What i don't understand is. If your gonna change to a man . atleast try to change to become a good looking man. maybe if chaz lost alot of weight he'll look so hot he will want to change back to a woman.

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
