Chaz Bono Still Gets Called A Woman By Mother Cher

CHAZ BONO, aka CHASTITY BONO, the daughter of pop-star CHER who recently underwent a sex change, still gets referred to as a woman by her mother. In an interview with Vanity Fair, CHER said she's finding it hard to get used to the idea of calling Chaz - 'him'.
In mid 2008, Bono began a female-to-male gender transition, and the process was documented for a two-part Entertainment Tonight feature in June 2009. In May of this year, Bono legally changed gender and name, and there are rumours of a documentary for the OPRAH WINFREY network. When speaking about her daughter's change, CHER said, "If I woke up tomorrow in a guy's body, I would kick and scream and cry and ..rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am - a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn't imagine it". However, the 64-year-old admits she is still getting used to the idea, saying, "Well, she's a very smart girl - boy! This is where I get into trouble".
41-year-old Chaz is a writer, actor, and musician, and is the only child of SONNY BONO and CHER. She is a leading advocate for lesbian, gay, transsexual and transgender rights.

Dont you mean HE is an advocate for GLBT. Geez if you are going to write a story at least get the persons gender right. Maybe I should come work for you so that I can proof read all of the bs before you send it out.

Of course Cher is having a hard time getting used to calling Chastity "CHAZ"! That's not HER name! Her name is Chastity Bono and she is a woman. Not a man. Even though Cher has lead the rock star lifestyle, she still knows right from wrong. She should NEVER stoop so low as to call her anything but her given female name! She doesn't even deserve any press attention for this. The world needs to stop calling attention to a handful of freaks and focus on the good and decent people that are willing to go down the right road and deal with what they were given. ESPECIALLY celebrities and their offspring.
