Chastity Bono Undergoing Sex Change
"Chastity Bono is having a sex change to become a man. A spokesman for Bono, born a girl to Sonny and Cher, says he `has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity` and began the sex-change process earlier this year.
Publicist Howard Bragman said Bono is proud of his decision and hopes `that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue.`
The 40-year-old writer, activist and reality-TV star came out as gay 20 years ago, Bragman said."

Chastity is a female, and her spokesperson shouldn`t refer to her as a "he" until a plastic surgeon has done his dirty work.
Chastity Bono has never accomplished anything of significance, she is a D-list celebrity only because of her famous parents. I really don`t care if she becomes a man or a cow or an android.
However I will give Chastity Bono credit for her tireless work on behalf of gay and lesbian rights. But by undergoing a sex-change operation, Chastity is undoing all her good work. This will just give more ammunition to Neanderthals who believe that gays and lesbians are mixed-up sinners who are unsure of their gender identity.
