Chaz Bono: "Regular Guy" Making "Positive Impact"

by at . Comments

Chaz Bono believes his controversial stint on Dancing with the Stars will be good for America due of its "positive impact on kids with gender dysphoria."

He said, "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."

Bono told Good Morning America that it's "crazy" people are boycotting the show and that despite all he's gone through, he's just "a regular guy."

Chaz Waves

Meanwhile, attorney Gloria Allred and lesbian rights activists will hold (what else) a news conference today to protest Dr. Keith Ablow and others decrying Bono.

There will be dance and viewing parties across the U.S. for DWTS' September 19 season premiere, and Gloria encouraged everyone to openly support Chaz.

Allred says she'll be personally doing her part in that mission, offering to "dance with every transgender person" who shows up at the L.A. party.

Who could pass up that offer?

Personally, I wouldn't cross the street to get a celebutard's autograph and generally don't care for or about them. But, every now and again I spot something and I comment on it. Chromosomes don't lie, "Chaz". You are not a boy.

poor laura doesn't like negativity. you need to move to that bubble gum and puppy dog world where cher is the mayor and c bono is a guy. i think people with that glass half full attitude need to seek help, its really half empty.

Randyjacksonsbutt, being transgendered isn't a trend or a phase, it's a real condition recognized in the medical community. Female to male sex change operations do occur but they are not as cut and dry as male to female sex change operations. There is a lot of potential to go wrong and it is my understanding that most transgendered men will opt out of the full 'bottom' surgery although some will choose to get their internal sex organs removed, such as ovaries and the uterus. Comments like these tell me that we're still a long ways from feeling comfortable with transgendered people and that makes me very sad... Being transgendered has nothing to do with vanity. It is a very difficult process to go through. Chaz is very lucky to have a mother who is loving and supportive of him! I hope in time, we will all learn to love our transgendered brothers and sisters!

"Regular guy"??? Who are they kidding? It's an overweight woman who couldn't take the constant pressures of Hollywood to stay thin so she got a plastic penis sewn on to her vagina. How does this make her/ him regular at all? At least tell it like it is instead of trying to make this mess out to be "regular". BTW - Generally, women do not get a sex change because it is very expensive. I'm talking hundreds of thousands of dollars. So who exactly is Chaz trying to relate to???
