Chaz Bono Offers To Talk To Angie And Brad About Shiloh If Her Tomboy Style Ever Ends Up Being More!

We think it's a way too early to even draw these kinds of conclusions about such a little girl, but there's also no harm in being educated on these things at an early age!

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's cute tomboy style sparked ridiculous controversy that her parents, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, were promoting confusion about the young girl's gender, and although Chaz Bono - who recently underwent female-to-male gender reassignment surgery and volunteers for a support group for kids with gender identity issues and their families - doesn't think that anything about the famous celebrity child points to anything that extreme, he admits he'd be happy to talk to their family!

He explains:

"I would love to talk to [Brad and Angelina] at some point. To at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it. I relate to these kids [with gender confusion]. The difference between them and myself is that I didn't articulate it and fight for it and say, 'No, no, no! I'm a boy!' I have so much respect for these kids that do. People get too freaked out about kids and what to do with kids. If you just let kids do what they need to do they usually have the right idea. For me, part of the way that I got through my fears is by reading books and seeing documentaries of people who transitioned before me. So I look at myself as one of those people who are just out in the community and the difference is that I just have a little bit of a larger reach."

So brave!

We think it's wonderful that he's used his notoriety to provide the public with such a needed insight into this issue!

We imagine there are a lot of terrified, confused young people out there who will hopefully feel a little more understood and not so alone when they hear your story!

Keep up the good work!

Lea T Talks About Going Under The Knife

Filed under: ModelsGivenchyRiccardo Tisci

Givenchy model Lea T has opened up to the New York Times about her upcoming gender reassignment surgery.

Lea says:

"I will always feel uncomfortable, but it will make my life a little easier, and I will look in the mirror and see something I like more."

She also hopes her recent appearance in the Givenchy campaign will inspire others:

"When you are a transsexual, you look for your future, and you can't see it. I thought this would be a nice message for another tranny: 'Look, we can be the same as other girls and boys.' It's small, but it makes you feel like you have a little chance. Maybe a transsexual will open a magazine and think: 'That's cool. We can be whatever we want.' That's why I did the Givenchy campaign."

Good for her!

And as for the 'T' in Lea T, she borrowed it from Givenchy's creative director and former boss Riccardo Tisci.

Warren Beatty's Daughter Wants Gender-Reassignment Surgery!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GaySuper SeniorsLGBT

We think that they should put aside their own feelings and be supportive parents. What she's going through must be so difficult!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are devastated that their 18 year old daughter, Kathlyn, is attending college as a young man, calling herself Stephen, and planning to get gender-reassignment surgery!

An insider reveals:

"Warren is beside himself over the situation with his daughter Kathlyn. He and Annette have tired to deal with this over the years when their daughter was younger, but she's determined to go ahead with the transgender operation, just like Chastity [Bono]. She repeatedly told her parents that 'once I turn 18,' she would take matters into her own hands."

It's definitely a serious operation to consider, but it obviously sounds like she's been struggling with this for a long time!

Hopefully her parents will be there for her! We certainly hope so!

Thoughts??

Chaz Bono Is A Man!

Filed under: Legal MattersCher

Legally!

Today a judge in Santa Monica granted Chaz Bono's petition for a gender and name change after Chaz has undergone an "irreversible surgery" in September of 2009 changing his "sex characteristics from female to male."

Doctors assert in the documents that he has "completed his gender reassignment surgery."

Congrats, Chaz!
