Do You Believe?

“Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.” Eat your heart out Anna Dello Russo, because Cher is back!
2002“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy’s body, I would just kick and scream and cry and fucking rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am—a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn’t imagine it. She’s a very smart girl—boy! This is where I get into trouble. My pronouns are fucked. I still don’t remember to call her ‘him.’"
Chastity Bono had the sex change procedure in 2009 so she could live as a man, changing her name to Chaz. Chaz Bono looks like this.


  1. Beauty thinks it has probably got to do with having a mom who behaves like a drag :P

  2. Dear Beauty: Who knows what it is? What do you think is in that bottle of water??? Chaz Bono is dressed like she's real jock and heading to the gym or something but obviously she's not? Mr B if you're reading this, please enlighten us? I know you're a Cher fan. I can't even think of this song without seeing you drunk in Taboo! Ha!

  3. For sure he can't be hitting the gym looking like that? Man or woman actually quite irrelevant to the public, i am sad to say but of course it matters a great deal to Chaz lah.

  4. DG , you know I grew with with Cher , I've watched her colourful, featherful , balloon-filled TV shows on the first colour TV sets in Singapore (I was very little then). Having her as a mom will surely make any little girl feel inadequate , I mean have do you live up to such a freakishly insecure mom ever fearful of age & weight and constantly seeking affirmation from toy boys ? (well now we know - be a boy.) Then again if you hear Cher in interviews she seems the most sensible, humourous and honest woman.

    Mr B.

  6. i think the crucial point to bear in mind is that, regardless of how Chaz looks/dresses like, his/her brain was/is probably hard-wired and genetically pre-programmed like that of a jock, right from day one.

    hence his/her jockish mannerism, even though he/she has had the misfortune to be born and equipped with the body of a girl/woman.

    i seriously doubt that the nurture/environmental factors - including having Cher as a mother - have anything to do with it. because, if 'nurture'/mummy had any power or influence at all, then Chaz should have turned out to be a screaming queen, not a wannabe jock.

    i feel for him. it must have been hard.

  7. Dear Anon 1: Thanks for the link to the vid - very relevant to our little discussion. Cher seems so level headed and honest. Even though she can scarcely move her face.
    Dear Erudite Anon: Can someone be born a jock? I too doubt the 'nurture' theory - but in chaz's case i simply think it's a case of bad taste. If mummy had any influence to nurture chaz, he would at least be gym fit and trendy - whatever her version of trendy is.

  8. 'Can someone be born a jock?

    hmm, Shiloh Jolie Pitt? ;)

  9. Dear Anon: LOL no no no shiloh is fated to be some sort of artsy wannabe hippy chick!

  10. pls don't get me wrong, i don't mean to pick on a child - not at all - and i wish her the best. and i do think that, since she's blessed with a pair of the most liberal, open-minded and resource-rich parents in the world, her future is reassuredly bright & full of promises, no matter what she turns out to be.

    but dear, let's face facts. have a look at these two pics:



    the first one is like a cute miniature version of Ellen Degeneres on her days off.

    and the 2nd one where's she's in a pair of boardshorts and nothing else jumping into a pool? that's a boy if i've ever seen one, and a rather rowdy one at that. cute, but decidedly boyish..:)

  11. Dear Erudite Anon: Just checked the pictures out and awww... little shiloh is so cute! Well i'm guessing the mom is styling her this way for some strange liberal-minded reason? My vote for cool cute and well styled kid goes to surie cruise. And i really like how madonna made her kids not watch tv and learn french!

  12. hmm, something tells me that little Shiloh is not one to be told what clothes to wear, and what not to wear, even at the tender age of 4+ (born 27 may 2006). that one is going to turn out to be quite a handful...

    as for Mama Madonna, i can so visualise her as a strict Disciplinarian & total Taskmistress. i'm surprised she hasn't forced them to learn Hebrew so as to read the Kabbalah in the original.

  13. Dear Anon: What makes you sure she hasn't? Poor rocco!
