"More Sonny, less Cher.
Celebrity daughter Chastity Bono is undergoing a *** change to become a man, her publicist announced Thursday.
The gender-swap process began shortly after Bono's 40th birthday in March and more than a decade after she came out as a lesbian.
"Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," spokesman Howard Bragman said in a statement using only male pronouns.
Chastity, the only child of the "I Got You, Babe" singing duo, will have gender reassignment surgery, according to Us magazine - although Bragman declined to confirm the operation.
"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones," said Bragman, declining to answer any questions.
Bono became a vocal advocate of *** and transgendered rights after going public with her sexuality.
There was no immediate comment from Cher, who initially cringed at her daughter's lesbianism before making peace with Chastity. Her father, Sonny Bono, died in 1998.
*** leaders hailed Bono's decision as courageous and "an important step forward."
"Coming out as a transgender is an extremely personal decision and one that is never made lightly," said Neil Giuliano, president of the *** & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.
"We look forward to hearing Chaz's story in his own words in the future."
"Transitioning," as gender switching is known, typically involves hormone therapy and sometimes - although not always - some surgical alteration.
"For some it's a medical transition," said Carrie Davis, director of adult services at the Lesbian, ***, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.
"For others, it's just social. And for many, it's both.""

No the profit is the money filling the doctors profits. I am asking if you have gone to a mental health specialist? Someone who can help you get in touch with what you are feeling. A person who can help you regain your self esteem.

I know as a fact that we as transgender people, NEED these operations.

Not ignorant at all. Should all large people get liposuction, all small breasted big breasts? People should love who they are. You were born a certain way for a reason. It is also a very dangerous surgery.

But this isn't the same as some selfish desire to look better. I NEED to look the way I feel. It's not something as simple as,"Oh I don't like the way I look" more of it's,"I can't STAND being in this body! This isn't the person I truly am on the inside." And if I was born this way then why try to stop me? If I was born transgender then that's apart of my "destiny".

I am not trying to be mean, but have you seeked therapy before your treatment? Are you open to everyone you meet that you were in fact born a man or woman?
You cannot be born transgendered that is the point. These procedures were not invented to help you, they are all for profit.
So a woman with a thyroid problem and big bones who cannot be thin naturally has a selfish desire to look better? Maybe she feels she should have been born skinny.
People must learn to love themselves, despite their faults.

I've never gone through hormonal therapy yet(the stage in which I am taking hormones). Transgenders are the people before the operation. As for profit. The profit is that I can be whole and feel like I am the person I know and see myself as.

My self esteem is being crushed by people who rip on transgenders and *** people in general. People who tell me I need help. And I have gone to a therapist, he said that I was legit. That I should go to another therapist and get a REAL specialists opinion. It's complicated about how he was "legit" himself but he's still a VERY good therapist.

There is nothing wrong with being ***. What matters is what is on the inside. You had the procedure but you still seem so insecure.

You know you can die, right? This is a very dangerous procedure. You are still a child. There is no turning back. Think of your parents, they brought a child of a certain gender into this world, you are basically insulting them. They loved you no matter what you were, why can't you just love yourself for who you are?

Idc, quit trying to put me down, nothing you can so or do can change me. And as for my parents, they completely support me. Quit trying because you're going to fail every time. You can't change me because I was born this way.

I am not trying to put you down, I am trying to put you up. There is more to you than a just a penis or a vagina. I am not trying to change you, you are trying to change yourself. You are a beautiful the way you are.

First of, you ARE trying to change me, second by doing so you are putting me down, and if I didn't have a penis then there would be more to it. I have the attitude of a girl in real life. I have always had feelings that I couldn't explain for a while when I was about 6. I never found girls attractive, and I never felt whole. And by the way, your opinion on my outward appearance means nothing. Your opinion on myself or my lifestyle that I was born with, I care about. Because you don't understand about it and therefore your opinion doesn't matter to me.

You are born a certain way. *** changes are the act of a very mentally disturbed person. They should seek therapy, not surgery.

I support *** rights but a *** change is something entirely different. Also considering that someone who gets a *** change often doesnt tell possible partners they date, it amounts to pretending to be something you are not. Gays are ok, lesbians are ok, they admit who they are and they are not hiding anything, transsexuals and bisexuals on the other hand are hiding who they are from the rest of the world the minute they get a *** change, they are on purposely duping people into believing they are the opposite ***, its wrong any way you look at it. You want to come out of the closet? than come out of the closet and be happy in your own skin instead of envying something you were not born with and expecting surgery to change that.

Don't you think that maybe by staying as the gender they're born with, they're already hiding who they are? Why would they want to tell someone of whom they date that they're original body didn't fit with who they are on the inside, psychologically? The person here is a man. He always has been. It's not pretending to be something you're not. Transgendered people are only pretending when they stay silent about what they feel, who they are. He's been living as a woman, when really, he's not. That, is pretending.
And be happy in your own skin? Are you serious? What about all the people in the world who worry about their weight, their muscles, how tall they are, who use make-up, who fusses about their clothes and hair, because they're not happy with how they look, how their 'own skin' presents them. Surely some of these people also believe that they're body doesn't reflect who they really are. Should we tell them to just 'be happy' with what they were born with?

Of course not, because they won't be happy, and everyone has the right to search for their own individual happiness.

And it's not all about surgery. They're are those who don't have it. They just go as far as they need to:

The article above could have told you that. ;)

And finally, I'm not saying that you shouldn't feel how you do, but show some empathy - try being in their shoes for a minute. It' not nice. A couple of decades ago that's how a *** person whould have felt, being forced to be someone they're not. I personally think that's unacceptable. Surely if you support *** rights, you think the same. :)

Maybe you believe people are born in the wrong bodies, but i dont. As for weight, height, ect.. thats a lot different then actually changing your ***. Although you dont hear people with weight/height issues running around saying, i was born in the wrong body, i was really suppose to be a supermodel instead and those items are not deceptive, it doesnt hide your true gender.

Alright, fair enough if that's how you feel. Personally I see gender and *** being different things. You can psychologically feel one way, but physically look like something else. And no, you don't hear those with height/weight issues saying they were born in the wrong body, because it's their own body they want to change, just like it's a transgendered persons own body they want to change, because their physical *** doesn't match with their inner gender. You may see biological gender as true gender, but many transgendered people probably believe that it's the psychological factor that determines who they are. People do say that 'it's what is on the inside that counts' right? lol :) It's not being deceptive, because it's all about being true to themselves. Would you expect a *** person to lead a life as if they were straight, rather than being who they really are? Of course not, because that is being deceptive. Would you expect a transgendered person to lead a life as if they were their biological gender? Personally, I wouldnt, because that's also deceptive. Truly, I believe that society focuses too much on what is visible, and too little on what is felt anyway. But that's just me. :)

Thanks for replying without biting my head off, anyway. :) There's too many people in the world that would snap at me for just disagreeing with them. :/

What is normality?If you are the only person in the world with a problem, or do something, then you are abnormal. Clearly *** changes were invented by someone.. and more than one person has gotten one.. It's normal now aday's i guess. Apparently chas bono, is not comfortable with her gender. I hate being places where I am not comfortable, I couldn't imagine living my life in a body i'm not comfortable in. So good for her for wanting to live her life comfortably. I just feel that all people who get *** changes should be open about it, and honest because I would probably kill myself if i ever had *** with some girl who used to be a man.....

You want to risk your live at only 15 years old to surgically change yourself. Please understand there is more to a person than their reproductive organs. Has anyone ever told you that you are perfect the way you are? All religion aside if humans were meant to change their *** they would be born with a vagina and a detachable penis.
