Cher Supports Chastity Chaz

| Filed under: Love LineCher


Mama Cher is finally speaking out about her daughter's choice to officially become a man.

In a statement, Cher reveals that "Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support. I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny."


The gay icon adds, "Although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding. The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child."

In a 1998 interview, Cher admitted to initially having a hard time accepting Chaz's homosexuality. But it's nice to see she's had a change of heart and loves her child unconditionally.

    You're fucking stupid. Just ’cause you don't "understand" something your child does or is, doesn't change your love towards that child. Sometimes you just have to step back and process everything for a minute. It's not that easy for everyone!

  2. 2

    Why the fuck is the media making such a big deal about this.

  3. 3

    Wonders when Perez will post up, that he's selling out (according to the Telegraph) to a "clean content" site since his money is drying up, and he's trying to copy another "clean content" site, so more advertisers will bring more money. Book sales not going well?

    since when does having a hard time accepting your daughters a lesbian equal you don't love her unconditionally? cher should be wondering where the hell she went wrong………

  5. 5

    It would be difficult for any parent to deal with, sharing the agony of the child who is actually going through this growing up. And ya think you got problems…

  6. 6

    i understand when people want to be homosexual or heterosexual.. but being transgender is changing what you were put on this earth as. it doesn't even matter whether you believe in god or not the fact is you are changing what you and what you were born as.

    I am gay and I want to approach this topic with sensitivity… that being said, I do not understand how Chastity / Chaz identifies.
    If she is a lesbian, she is a woman who falls in love with other women and may want to marry one. As Perez previously suggested, her current actions might be seen as going through a loophole so that she and her partner can get married.
    So… is she a lesbian OR is she a man trapped in a woman's body? These are NOT the same thing. I know a MtoF transsexual who is a lesbian, in other words, she was a man, is now a woman, and has sex with other women. No one can tell her that she would be better off staying a man, with the right equipment for women, etc. She felt like a woman and wanted to live as a woman, which has nothing to do with which gender she is attracted to…
    My concern is that not only might Chastity / Chaz be doing this for the wrong reason (i.e. to get married to her female partner) but also that her sex change encourages people to conflate gender with sexuality. Gay men are not women, Lesbians are not men!!! I'm a gay man who LOVES being a man, I love my body and I have never wanted to be a girl. I know there are some gay men who like more "girly" things, or going to parties in drag etc. but the very notion of what is "girly" is a stupid social stereotype, and this kind of thing is fine, it does not mean they want to lop off their genitals and get a vagina!

    Congratulation on your son's addadicktomy.
    Not Elijah Blu's- He already got one.

    If they can put a dick on Chaz, we can put one in you.

    So when Chaztity gets the sex change operation will she still be born gay or will everything be normal?

  13. 13

    What makes a man a man or a woman a woman?

    Not ALL fem boys are gay. . .not a tough girls a lesbians. . .

    But then again. . .Perez, as soon as a guy stands with a little more"flare" to him. . .you want him to admit to himself he's gay. . .ex. Sanjay. . .

    So where does the point come when we just let it be. . .and STOP TELLING PEOPLE THEY ARE GAY AND THAT THEY HAVE TO COME OUT TO THEMSELVES!!!

    Man. . .it's the biggest oxymoron I have EVER seen!

  14. 14

    Cher, you did something very, very wrong with that kid. Maybe it was your crappy singing that drove her to be a freak……

    Re: buck – Hi Buck:) You know what really intrigues me??? You always post on these types of stories. Are you gay? You know I love you Buck but it seems like you are WAY to interested in gay sex ;) Gay, gay, gay, gay, GAY! It's all you repubes think about! Come out of the closet already Buck.

    labels and changes - who cares, as long as he's happy — BUT really, cher might have a problem with this? Really, Cher? Yeah the ghey icon - seriously, being around tons of adoring gay fans hasnt made her more accepting of them?

  17. 17

    good on her

  18. 6one9 says – reply to this


    If Chasity is a dude ~~ Then let her/him become CHAZ with no judgment.. We only have 1 life to live on this earth. PERIOD!!!!!!!!

  19. 19

    Go on CHER. That's a mature attitude for a "very difficult situation". VERY DIFFICULT !

  20. 20

    I think that was well put by Cher. Im not going to try to explain what Chaz is going through, because I wouldnt know. But I for one do not believe anyone would do something so drastic, if they didnt truly believe that it was right for them. So you do what you have to do Chaz.

    Chastity on Cher's plastic surgery:
    "Cher is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support. I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny.
    Although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding. The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my mother."

    What goes around, comes around.

    Cher: You are a horrible mother letting your daughter go through this ridiculous change without throwing you body in front of the operating room door in protest!!!!! What's WRONG with you?? You must be nuts too! Your daughter is a whacko!!

  31. 31

    Cher should just DISOWN yeah that's right..her whacko daughter. She gave birth to a girl not a dude.If I was Cher I would tell her to never speak to me again if she goes through with that shit!! Its soooo fucked up!! She needs shock treatments immediately!!!

  32. 32

    She's not saying she accepts her child's homosexuality. She says she supports HER child, not the same thing Perez. Or do you just read what you want into everything? She's like most parents, while not understanding( and she doesn't have to approve because Chastity is grown ), she still loves her child. It's probably hard as hell on her personally, but she isn't allowing her own feelings on the matter to affect her love for her child. I like that she said what she did without sugar coating it with "oh, I'm so happy Chaz is becoming a man."

    Chastity is either confused or is having the surgery for the WRONG reason. When she came out over 20 years ago she said she was LESBIAN. Never had I heard her say she felt like a man trapped in a woman's body, that is not a lesbian; those are 2 different things. Now she's come up with this story that she's felt like a man most of her life??? Bullshit. She had to know when she first came out the difference between being a Lesbian and being transgendered. If not, she was stupid as well as confused. This is one of the things that give heterosexuals the idea that this is a CHOICE. Given the way she came out over 20 years ago and the way she's lived her life she's not doing the Gay or Transgendered community any good. It just sounds wacko.

  33. 33

    I wonder what her stepbrother thinks,that Allman kid,what does he even look like?????

  34. 34

    Chas/Chaz's only claim to fame has been her/his sexuality. You'd think with the world of priviledge and all the exposure to the entertainment industry she/he grew up with some talent might have emerged besides who you're sleeping with or what sex you want to be.

  35. 35

    Hooray for CHER!!! It will be the hardest thing for Chaz to change under the scrutiny of public eye! He will be an example of a normal person trying to live life well, and happy for a group of people that don't really have strong role models in the public eye. Thank goodness that he will have a strong support network. Congratulations CHAZ for having the courage to seize your opportunity for happiness in life!!!

    kisses momma cher!!

  37. 37

    yay Cher! we loves you, you sexy beast!

  38. 38

    As a parent, Cher has always shifted from the role of stern authority figure (if naming one's child Chastity doesn't imply authoritarianism, I don't know what does) to friend/rescuer, and back again. She doesn't have the judgment to follow through one way or the other. No wonder Chastity doesn't know who she is; she was handled unpredictably from the start.

  41. 41

    Cher knows she has legions of LGBT fans by her side. We're here to support her and Chaz to the fullest.

  42. 42

    So is he/she still gay or straight?

    Either way IT's still butt ugly.

  43. 43

    Good for her. This is Chaz' only living parent…I'm very glad to see he still has his mother's unconditional love.

  44. 44

    Man I would be like "shame!"

  45. 45

    A change of heart? She said she had a hard time with her being gay, not with loving her. If being gay defines someone, they're pretty shallow.

  46. 46

    Also, I don't know why she's making a big deal of the media. Chastity ANNOUNCED this to the media to get attention. She could have just done it and people would barely notice.

  47. 47

    I always felt a little bit of a connection with Chaz, because we basically grew up together. I always remember watching her on tv with her parents, and thinking she was the luckiest kid I'd ever seen. I'm glad to see that Cher is just like any other parent. A lot of my friends who are gay, have parents who feel the same way as Cher does. Just because they have a hard time accepting their child's choice, it does not take away the love they have for that child. One of my friend's mom told me "I'm not excited about my son being gay, any more than I would had he told me he was an addict or gotten a girl pregnant. Just because I don't agree with his lifestyle, doesn't mean I'm still not the same mom, who would take a bullet for him, & will always be." I think that's Cher's attitude as well.

    Re: Willys Bong – he looks very good (and normal) - has his own band - google him!

    Re: orderly logic – Were you raised by Cher yourself? You draw your conclusions solely based on her name! Doesn't sound logical to me

  50. 50

    Obviously Cher is making this ridiculous statement now because she is trying to avoid attention on the horrible job she apparently did as a mother. She must have either ignored her child or withheld her affection from the child. Obviously Chastity (not Chaz) is severely psychologically disturbed. And most likely this comes from her abusive childhood. CHASTITY NEEDS SOME SERIOUS PSYCHOLOGICAL HELP!! She should go over to her mother's house and borrow a pretty dress and some lipstick, fix herself up, and find a nice man who can take care of her and look after her. Cher should go away and die after the terrible thing she has obviously done to her child.

  51. 51

    Isn't her other child (a male), named Elijah Blue, gay also????? How strange!

  52. 52

    Re: RobPnMeShouldB – Cher did not go wrong. Chaz has not gone wrong. Chaz is being himself and Cher is trying to accept it. Whats wrong is…people making comments on transsexual issues when they have NO clue about the topic. Making negative comments on transsexuality based in ignorance, fear, and perhaps hatred is the big WRONG factor in all this. To those passing judegment… there but for the grace of whomever…go you!

  53. 53

    Re: OUT THEM ALL – He likely thought he was lesbian. It is a situation in which he knew he did not like men sexually, however was likely confused about identity. In time it likely became clear to him that he felt male.
    It is a compicated issue. You cant think about this in cut and dry, black and white terms.

  54. 54

    Re: Sistah Mary – you are the freak… try doing some research on transsexuality. It occurs naturally. What would you have society do…maybe execute trans people? Try a little education on the matter instead of making comments based on your ignorance.

  55. 55

    Re: Romy23 – The diagnosis of a transsexual is made by trained doctors and psychiatrists. It is NOT a fun and games…decision made on a whim, for shites and goigles.. It is a legitmate diagnosis with medically recognized world wide treatment options. So maybe it is not your diagnosis… but just be thankful. We are not all born perfect cookie cutter biggots.

    Cher's forgotten more than most of you know, lol. If you knew anything, you'd know that being gay isn't a choice; it's usually a genetic thing. I hope Cher is feeling well, and getting some.

  61. 61

    Go Chaz! And go Cher for trying to understand!

  62. 62

    Re: kisskimmy – It's so funny you're calling everybody judgmental when you're the one doing all the judging, btw I'm no bigot I'm interested in people's opinions about this but I don't know what to think myself. Well what the hell you don't care, you just like calling people you don't even know ugly judgmental bigots.

  63. 63

    If she is happy, good for Chaz (and Mama Cher)

  64. 64

    It's good to know that she supports her child. I mean all parents should do that, if they plan to be parents and later don't support their child's decision. That's just mean.
