Cher's Daughter Chastity Announces Plan to Become a Man

Chastity Bono, daughter of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, is undergoing gender reassignment surgery, his publicist confirmed to ABCNews.com.

The daughter of TV celebrities Sonny and Cher is going to become a man.

Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity," Howard Bragman said. "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 feel nothing but sympathy for Chastity. Try as we might, we cannot find one snarky thing to say about her story. We have noticed over the decades the sadness and pain in Chaz's eyes. Recently she/he has looked more and more calm and relaxed in her world.

We cannot begin to imagine the childhood and teenage life Chaz must have endured. Though we adore Cher tremendously, she is CHER....

Chaz could never have lived up to that image and it must have been so painful for her.

We wish her the best in her new gender and hope it brings her the enjoyment of being who she is meant to be.

Godspeed Chaz darling!

Yes, I hope it gives her some peace and contentment to be who she really is. Although I guess I should say "he."
