This is one messed up person. She DOESN'T know who she is or what she wants to be. Very sad. I feel nothing but pity for her. However, she does a huge disservice to the entire transexual community.

That poor poor girl. It is literally painful to look at those pictures. And, yes, it DOES appear that she has a huge goiter or something going on with her neck beyond just being fat.%0D %0D There is no way that she can go through life without people forever thinking of her as a woman and remembering that adorable little girl from her parent's television show. The female to male thing just doesn't jibe. Of course, everyone will be nice to her face and "treat" her like a fellow but they won't THINK it. And, of course, everyone will talk about her behind her back.%0D %0D What the hell went so horribly wrong for her? She was a lesbian for years. Was she always simply "in the wrong body?" I think she is one messed up person and I HATE to say it but I think it might be pretty good odds to put her in the celebrity death pool.

"So, money aside, you don't think it's a hardship to feel trapped in the wrong body everyday of your life?"

I think it must be a terrible hardship. But the fix is to change your attitude and ideas about why you need the 'right' body. The fix isn't surgery and hormones. They don't really change you. They might change your appearance, depending on the surgeon's skill, and how your body responds to hormones (which also will probably tax your liver).

The problem is a fucked up culture when it comes to gender. Why can't you be a genetic female but live as a male?

The problem isn't really being trapped in the wrong body.

[quote]Can a doctor really "make" a penis? One that gets blood flowing to it, gets hard, everything?%0D %0D No. They can make a tubular protusion but it doesn't look or work like a penis. They might be able to give it some sensation but it can't get hard without an implant. They fashion it out of the vagina. They literally invert the vagina and stuff it. I saw picture of it somewhere once and that's what I recall at least. It was very disturbing.%0D %0D Every time I see the name Chaz Bono, my mind automatically says, Ewww, and I'm sure I'm not alone. That's the life she chose for herself now. Instead of fixing her mental problems the right way, she used her body to try to fix them. That never works. So many transgenders regret it when it doesn't actually fix what was broken. Are there any studies on how many post-ops kill themselves? I bet it is proportionally high.%0D %0D

[quote]Can a doctor really "make" a penis? One that gets blood flowing to it, gets hard, everything?

Doctors make a fake penis for the FTM trannies from the clitoris. I think they do something surgically to make more of the hidden part of the clitoris exposed and I'm quite sure all the male hormones these gals have to take for the rest of their life also increases the size of the clitoris. You may or may not know that the clitoris becomes erect during sexual arousal just like a male's penis. Have you seen the pictures of that female wrestler Chyna's clitoris after years of the steroids and hormones she took (see url below). It literally had turned into a small penis.

No they don't. They use some of that tissue to make a scrotal sack, but there is a procedure many undergo called a vaginectomy, which is just what it sounds like.

The skin for the penis is taken either from the forearm or thigh.

She was such a gorgeous charming person in her natural state.

I support Chaz' right to live his? life however he chooses. But it won't change a simple fact that he still has a female body, one that is doused with hormones and maybe altered with surgery. That's what i see/hear when Chaz appears on TV. An altered female. Same with Buck Angel, who appears on cam4 every so often. It's not PC to say but they both still look like women to me.

Altering yourself because you believe you're 'wrong' seems to go against the whole point of people coming out and living openly and honestly as who you truly are.

by Anonymousreply 5001/25/2011

I think that a lot of people are responding strongly to Chaz's size, that it's his weight that's tipping us into a state of digust. I've known one FTM in Boston, only met him as a man and had no idea that he used to be female. He seemed well-adjusted; had a successful career in advertising, a great group of friends. I think we may be suspicious that this re-gendering is a symptom of a problem and not the solution. Just as his weight is a symptom. %0D

When i saw him on cam4, he did seem like an altered female. A photo is one thing, and he is convincing in a photo, but when you see he moves and talks, he seems like an altered female. You can't just 'erase' your femaleness (or maleness) no matter how much you want to.

Maybe some people can get away with it better than others and 'pass'. But yes I do think Buck looks like a female who took male hormones and got a lot of tattoos. To me Buck does not look male.

Cher must not have been the greatest of mothers. Both her children turned out to be addicts; Chaz is obviously addicted to food and her son Elijah Blue was a heroin addict. I think being the children of a woman like Cher must not be the easiest thing in the world, despite all the privileges that go with being the offspring of a wealthy celebrity. Cher as always struck me as being very immature; maybe that's why her kids turned out to be so messed up.%0D %0D Chaz does not have a "goiter." That's just fat.

r81, that's the kind of black/white binary thinking that makes people think they're wrong and they need to take hormones and have their genitals butchered. Which is seldom the fix they were hoping for, unless 'passing' is more important than being orgasmic, which many people who have the surgery are not.

So i think we need to change and start to accept that yes, there are men with tits and a vajayjay. Or maybe me need new words for it.

I don't think becoming a man will make him/her any less messed up and unhappy. I think Cher knows this and feels bad about Chaz's persistent unhappiness and feels that s/he is going to through all of this surgery, name-changing, hormone-taking, etc and still be miserable.

There was a show on the other night about another FTM. He was involved with a straight woman, who emphasized she was not a lesbian and was not sexually aroused by female anatomy.

If Chaz doesn't have a penis (= still has a vagina), SHE'S still a FEMALE with a double mastectomy.

[quote]He was involved with a straight woman, who emphasized she was not a lesbian and was not sexually aroused by female anatomy.

I know a couple like this and the "straight" woman says she isn't a lesbian. Now I can buy that she isn't a lesbian but she clearly isn't a straight woman either.

Chaz and the gf, Jenny, look like they can't stand each other. I'm calling it now: Jenny will haul Chaz into court in a few years on charges of abuse both mental and physical.

As for Chaz, well, I hope this is the end of this very large freaks' little freak show. This person is only in the news because the media are a bunch of whores and apparently being Cher's mentally ill daughter allows you to cash in on publicity. This woman has done nothing in her life to warrant this amount of attention. My favourite part of the Oprah episode was the woman sitting directly behind Oprah's left shoulder. Her facial expressions said it all: "You bitches are full of shit"!

Newsflash: A fake, surgically constructed penis does not make you any less female, or more male, than does a double mastectomy. With or without a dick, Chaz, like all FTMs, is biologically female and always will be, but he's a man (well, debatably a man according to DL) in terms of his gender identity.

by Anonymousreply 12405/10/2011

The other show referred to above with the FTM who wasn't attracted to lesbians is called Strange Sex and airs on TLC.

It does seem that many FTMs/MTFs might just be extremely self loathing gay people. The antigay feelings seem to fuel the idea that you're in the 'wrong' body.

by Anonymousreply 12505/10/2011

I think gay people need to stop claiming these people as "confused gays." As they state, this is some sort of birth defect, either biological, mental, or a combination. It has nothing more to do with being gay than it does with being straight, and homosexuality should not be further pathologized by being identified with a condition that the people coping with it themselves identify as a problem that needs to be corrected. Gayness does not need to be corrected.

by Anonymousreply 12605/10/2011

Point taken r126. But when you grow up in a culture that teaches you to despise anything gay, and you know you are attracted to your own sex, one way to 'fix' yourself is by convincing yourself, hey, you're not gay after all, you're just a normal heterosexual born in the wrong body. Sadly this has been borne out by some remarks some FTMs have made.

The problem for me is that the 'fix' is a biological fallacy, and it often ends in disappointment for people who go through with it hoping that the world will treat them as the gender they feel they are.

From L chat:%0D %0D "No doubt that they love life. But is it really life they love or is it fucking around with no consequence that they really love? Gay men are selfish. Self-absorbed. They see sex in every in literally every hole in the universe. Maybe that's what drives their passion.%0D %0D If it weren't for gay men enjoying life too much, AIDS wouldn't have become what it became. Gay/bisexual men are responsible for unleashing the AIDS epidemic on the world. They won't take responsibility for that though. The ones who are still alive are nostalgic for the day when orgies, visits to bath houses, unfettered use of recreational use of drugs, and fucking everything that moves in the '70s and early '80s was what it meant to be out and proud.%0D %0D Then when you ask them about AIDS, one of the first words that pass their lips are: "Fucking Reagan," followed by, "it's a government conspiracy to wipe out gays."

It is my belief that being obese is a clear sign for being unhappy or depressed (though I acknowledge that there are a few rare occasions where obesity is related to the use of drugs which are not used to treat depression).

It is also my belief that a woman has a vagina and a man has a penis. As long as Chaz or any pre op transsexual has a vagina she still remains a woman in my mind, but I am respectful to her wishes to be called (or addressed as) a man for the transitioning period.

I wish Chaz happyness and look forward to him losing a considerable amount of weight with all his identity issues (which were the root for his drastic weight gain?) being resolved.

r173, L Chat may bill itself as a 'lesbian messageboard', but there aren't many lesbians on there. Read some of the posts ... it's packed full of pervs, kids, and messed up girls feeding some obsession with the female celeb du jour, or grinding their axe.
