No, Cher Didn’t Get Chaz Bono A Penis For Christmas

chaz-bonoWhen it comes to manliness, Chaz Bono wants the whole nine yards. Give or take.

The recently dis-engaged DWTS star is planning on going to Europe for an affordable phalloplasty as soon as his budget allows for it.

He tells Rolling Stone,”There’s different ways to do the surgery, from real basic to more and more options,” he said. “It’s like a car. The doctor I want to use is in Belgrade. It’s going to be a little cheaper there. Probably $25,000, maybe $45,000, I really don’t know.”

And he didn’t ask Santa for the operation, either: “She has [helped out financially] in the past when there’s been a problem or issue,” says Chaz of mama Cher. “But no, I don’t like to take money from my mom more than anybody else does. Being self-supporting is important to me.”

      You have to admire the willingness to suffer for what you want.
      Last I knew of it, that “bottom surgery” was really a painful recovery.
      Wishing him the best results and a fast recovery.
      Does anyone know if the technology has improved any?

      Cher who is worth an estimated $150 million, could easily afford to give Chaz a penis.

      @christopher di spirito: Sure, but would Chaz want that? My dad bought my first car, and I always felt like I needed his permission to take it on trips. :)

      @Fitz: Cher could buy me a house in Malibu and come visit anytime she wants.

      Hey, if Cher’s got one to re-gift, I’m not adverse to a fresh one…

      Could this be the reason why his engagement broke off? His fiancee didn’t want him to go through with this operation?

      Don’t do it, Chaz. It’s not too late to be our beloved Chastity once again.

      Well he must really want something hanging between his legs as most trans men don’t have bottom surgery because doctors can’t create a truly functional penis.

      And this has nothing to do with Chaz’s gender identity, but he has NEVER been very well spoken, even as a lesbian ‘activist’ in the 90’s. He just seems totally socially awikward and his only claim to anything is being Cher’s child.

      @QJ201: So I am assuming that you make fun of amputees with prosthetic legs? Of course it’s not very good, barely functional– but people want their bodies to look as close to how they feel as possible, right?

      Cher should have given Chaz a membership to Nutri-System. Fat FTM trannies with no equipment to work with aren’t exactly at the top of a woman’s list of fantasy men. Rather than being a fame whore in search of a dick, perhaps he should concentrate more on his appearance so that the sight of him doesn’t gross people out.

      @QJ201: That’s not very fair with the “his only claim to anything is being Cher’s child” comment. It was the joint parental push that brought the baby and child Chastity to the national stage — the entire nation watched how Sonny & Cher seemingly tormented a shy child into awkward performances (something more children than not suffer, but NOT outside the family and NOT on national TV).

      I know that I would not want to have gone through my own coming-out process with the brightness of light of being the only child of Sonny & Cher. It was tough enough figuring out that I liked boys, and embracing my sexual identity; how about you QJ201? Tough enough, right? Can you possibly imagine what extra challenges of a transsexual identity? Screwing up and mis-identify as lesbian? As the child of Cher?

      All-in-all, I think Chaz Bono should be congratulated for embracing the challenge to be the he he is. Cheers, Chaz.

      Headline is offensive.

      It’s a waste of money.
      Until he loses that weight, he’ll never see it anyway.

      Headline is offensive. Does not belong on an LGBT site.

      No more than “Sir Ian McKellen Is Quite Certain That Shakespeare Was A Big Poof.”

      In that spirit, it actually should’ve read “No, Cher didn’t get Chaz a Bono for Christmas.”
