Chaz Bono: Gender Is Between Your Ears, Not Between Your Legs

November 20th, 2009 by

AP NEW YORK – Chaz Bono says beginning the sex-change process to turn him from a woman to a man is “the best decision I’ve ever made.”

The 40-year-old writer, activist and reality-TV star, who was born a girl to Sonny Bono and Cher, says he’s eight months into the years-long transformation and says he feels great.

Formerly called Chastity, he told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday: “Life is short and life is precious. This is who I am. I need to finally be who I am.”

Bono says he always felt like a boy growing up and came out as a lesbian 11 years ago. Now he’s undergone gender-reassignment surgery and hormone therapy.

He tells ABC: “To me, gender is between your ears, not between your legs. I’ve felt male as far back as I can remember.”

    Well, now we know why we haven’t seen Cher in the media spotlight…….because Chaz obviously ate the bitch and may have dug up Sonny for a tasty leg or two.

    He/She looks like a young John Candy, and will probably die just as fat too.

    Seriously? If gender is “between your ears and not your legs” then why have the surgery at all? Shouldn’t you just be able to tell people you’re not really a chick and that should do it? “You can’t handle the truth!”

    The hypocrisy of miscreants is always worth a few laughs.
