Chastity Bono -- Becoming a Man

Posted Jun 11th 2009 3:00PM by TMZ Staff

Chastity Bono, civil rights advocate, journalist, author and musician, is in the early stages of changing his gender -- transitioning from female to male, TMZ has learned.

Bono, the child of legendary entertainers Sonny and Cher, began the process earlier this year, shortly after his 40th birthday.

"Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," confirmed Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman.

"He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago.

We ask that the media respect Chaz's privacy during this long process as he will not be doing any interviews at this time."

I've never understood what kind of sadist calls their child "Chastity", really. With respect to any unfortunate Chastities in our midst, who in their right mind decides to saddle their own kin from birth with a name absolutely guaranteed to make their life harder? Particularly during the especially-difficult teenage years?

Why not just call your child Neversex or Impotence or something, and be done with it?

I fully support people living life on their terms, but what the hell... CHAZ? If this person is going through such an extensive process to honor their true idenity, wouldn't it make sense to select a male name that isn't so horrific? I'd want to kick my own ass if my name were Chaz.

It doesn't really matter but what you wrote made me wonder if the plural of Chastity is Chastities when your referring to people. I feel like I'm talking about animals. Chastiti?

@lizng: Chad would have been easy enough. Chaz makes me think of a frat dude.

So how is Chaz doing?

I just remember when I was a kid and we were in Vegas and we were walking around and there was this photo of Cher posted large somewhere in a public place.

I remember when Chasity was first born. She was so adorable and I wanted to trade my baby brother off for her as a sister instead. She never really was one for the limelight, andf I can recall her looking unhappy up there on stage with Sonny, Cher, and Cher's hair invention of the week. It was almost as if she were a prop instead of a child.

This is absolutely unacceptable.

Are you talking about the whole concept or just his particular look? I mean, Chasity was an adorable looking little girl, and while Cher tried dressing her up as Cher would dress herself, for the most part, you always saw pics of her looking like a tomboy. He actually still has her eyes and facial features.

I'm wondering whether or not he got to request or order a specific choice in wiener size myself. I mean, if you get the opportunity to leave behind your unhappy self for a new happier self, why not be super happy, right?
