Thank you for keeping an open mind. It is truly informative. I know a little bit about the transgendered population but I learned a little bit more watching the documentary.

Of course youth want someone they can relate to but they are also very aware of the constant attention Chaz is receiving.



You missed the part about the surgery. The surgery will change his anatomy. Please research gender change operations.

Anatomy is still not a change on the chromosomal level!!! All of this stuff is just a covering! It's phony! Thaey can strap on a plastic penis or grow breasts! It doesn't matter.



It's still XX chromosomes for Chastity Bono!

I see this as pre-empting endless tabloid leaks. This way Chaz gets to tell his story without any spin or sensationalism. He has been in the public eye since birth. He is very brave to put it all out there, but I totally see why he has chosen to do this.

Chaz seems very mature and sure of himself. I was quite impressed. I also like the way he always stepped up in defense of his mother when everyone else (especially Joy Behar) tried to make her look like the bad guy or misunderstanding mom. His girlfriend is also very pretty. He's traveled a long road and seemed to travel it well.
You can cut off an elephant's trunk and glue bunny years to his head and he's still an elephant.

I find the whole scenario totally revolting.
