Chaz Bono on Dancing with the Stars Appearance: Good For America

by at . Comments

In the face of growing criticism - Dr. Keith Ablow says parents should keep their kids away from Dancing with the Stars, while OneMillionMoms dot com says "Christians should not watch" - Chaz Bono is not phased.

Instead, the controversial cast member sounds inspired.

The backlash has "made me realize I'm really glad I'm doing this, because America really needs to see this," Bono told ABC News. "It just kind of shows why for me it's important to be on the show because so little still is known about what it means to be transgender. And there's so many just completely inaccurate stereotypes and thoughts that people have."

Howard Bragman has been advising Bono and told Good Morning America:

"Watching Chaz Bono dance is not going to make your kid transgender. But what it can do is possibly save your kids life because young transgender kids, kids with gender identity issues, have a huge suicide rate and if they see one positive influence, one positive role model, this can save lives and that's why Chaz is here."

Fellow Dancing with the Stars contestants have also spoken out in support of Bono. THG readers? They are also on his side. Vote in our poll NOW!

You ignorant, intolerant fools are destroying our country. Chaz is a human being, what happened to gods love for ALL NO MATER WHAT?? How would you feel if you had a son or daughter grow up to be transgender, and you CAST THEM ASIDE because you don't understand what they're going through, then they go and COMMIT SUICIDE like so many of our young transgender teens do, because you were not there for them. Your ideals are the complete opposite of Jesus Christs ideals. You have nothing to fear from someone who's transgender, they are human, just like you.

For Christians, they certainly are judgmental, intolerant, and quick to anger. None of that sounds very Christian to me.

This is NOT the America I grew up in. Chaz has every right to be on any show he wants to. I would imagine he is a very talented! Look who he grew up with as parents!
So tired of the Blatant discrimination by the "Christian Nation". If I were younger I would leave this country. Patriot Act, Iraq, Afghanistan all created to make $ for the rich. While Congress slowly chips away at our freedoms. God help us.

The show isn't scheduling Chaz to promote tolerance. They want ratings at all cost.

I will never watch this program anymore Because they are Antichrist

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.
