A modest proposal for transgendered people who can’t get a date

I don’t know what the proper etiquette on this is so I’m just going to say it in a way that actually makes sense.

Chaz Bono is the daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono. Until a few years ago Chaz was Chastity before having a sex change from female to male (or man to woman, because apparently they’re not the same thing)

So, Chaz is having trouble hookin’ up with the girls.

The New York Daily News reports,

“I seem to repel women that I am attracted to,” Bono told Confidenti@l at the Les Girls charity fund-raiser in Los Angeles.” He says, “I have been single for four years, which has been a great thing and (it’s) great to have time to myself.”

Starting in summer 2008, Bono, born Chastity Bono to the pop-star duo of Sonny and Cher, began a two-year gender reassignment treatment that made him the man he is today.

“I have always been in a male mentality,” he said. “Other than that mentally things haven’t changed that much. Unfortunately I don’t have any insight into women. I wish I did have more, but I really don’t.”

I have a modest proposal, civil rights legislation that prohibits people from refusing the romantic advances of those who are transgender.

If a Christian baker isn’t allowed the right to refuse service to gay couples getting married then none of us should have a right to discriminate on the basis of gender, ever.

EVER.

We frankly have no reason for it. Personal preference to the natural born gendered? How transphobic of you.

At least Christian bakers can cite religion as the source of their bigotry. What excuse do women have? That he’s not a real man? Nonsense…

“I have always been in a male mentality,” he said. “Other than that mentally things haven’t changed that much. Unfortunately I don’t have any insight into women. I wish I did have more, but I really don’t.”

See?

Don’t say that it because he doesn’t have real balls either, if that were true no liberal guy would ever get a date either.

(I debated on whether there should be quotes –>)Kidding aside, Chaz isn’t the first to encounter this buzzsaw of transgender reality. This transgender girl is upset boys wont flirt with her.

Before making the leap, Chastity was a lesbian. When the line over to Chaz was crossed the bridge to that dating pool was burned, because it ceased making sense for lesbians to be interested. More problems are created than solved.

This is a dilemma that further punctuates the hole that the medical field has dug for itself by insisting at the behest of transgender interests to pursue sex change as the only viable option to people who believe in their mind, but it isn’t a mental disorder, that they were born in the wrong gender.

UPDATE: Some comments here and on social media are suggesting Chaz’s general unattractiveness and weight are reason women wont go for…him…while it’s true that there are certain things that make people less attractive in general, as I heard recently on a TV show “there’s a lid for every pot.” We’ve all seen lots of unattractive people find someone who loves them for who they are.

Maybe Chaz will too, but I think the real “repellent” here isn’t looks, it’s a visceral reaction to knowing Chaz is only a man thanks to willfulness and surgery.

A lot of people who support transgenders would argue it’s transphobic/hateful/bigoted to believe that…I would bet most, if not all of them would not choose to be with one themselves.
