You`re trying to insult me by saying that DNA is the plan...in reply to me saying that DNA is the plan.

I suggest you take a little more time reading before replying, so you don`t make yourself look so silly again.

Also, junk DNA isn`t used. That`s why it`s called "junk".

Klix, i can see why you`re being so gender-neutral-sensitive. i mean i can tell you were born a man, but identify more with being a woman

Good for you! don`t let anyone tell you different, "girl"!

@ Quik2TheStab - you can actually take pills that will change your pigment so you can become black if you want.

Nothing can be done about your penis though. It`s gonna stay white-size.

It`s Sonny and Cher`s kid, everyone who doesn`t know who it is.

And this is not notable, entertaining, or newsworthy in any way.


Although, to throw my opinion into the ring, I think transgendered people should just suck it up. I don`t care what your sexual preferences are, but if you`re a dude, you`re a dude, or otherwise.

I`ve wished I was black my whole life (for the sake of argument), but if I wore blackface, everyone would freak out at me for acting offensively.

he/she is pretty fat. maybe instead of taking the time and energy to loose the weight and be semi-attractive she just bought a pair of man-berries.

I mostly wanted to know who it was and why it was weird that he grew a beard. It`s not that hard to grow a beard, not even for a woman. For anyone transgendered, it should be a piece of cake.

Well, depending on how it easy it is for you to grow a beard in general. For me it`s hella easy, but for some of my friends it`s hard.

I`m quite impressed as well with IAB to be honest. For every stupid question/comment there`s a logical response. And how do you know he doesn`t already have one erik? Levyn, PsychGeek and a few others have really impressed me. Very few people are aware of how to handle transgenders and yeah a lot react badly or just uncomfortably. It just makes me laugh that gender is defined by say a man having a penis, sperm, no breasts, usually short hair/beard and male interests. So a guy who lost his penis (In some freak accident or something), is infertile, has long hair and never could really grow a beard and is also not interested in going to the pub/playing sports/drinking beer is not a guy in a lot of peoples books.

Leaving aside gender completely, there`s the question of how you define sex. The usual definitions are an approximation, nothing more than that.

i) By DNA. Nope, that`s just a plan. Your DNA doesn`t actually determine the sex you`re born as.

ii) By sexually functional primary sexual organs, as SarahofBorg suggested. Well, that means all women become neuter after menopause and everyone is neuter until puberty. It also means that any man taking a male contraceptive pill becomes neuter, as would anyone who has to have theirs removed for medical reasons (e.g. can be necessary in some cases of cancer).

Defining a person`s sex is not as clear-cut as it`s usually treated as being.

Hormone levels is another possibility, maybe the best one since it has the most direct effect on physiology.

[quote]Still has a XX chromosome. Hormone therapy and surgery can`t change that.[/quote]

And? What difference does it make? I have the chromosomes for hair on my head. I shaved it off. Does that mean I still have hair?

Also, it`s within the realms of possibility that he has a type Y chromosome. Nature doesn`t always go quite as expected - it is possible to have a type Y chromosome and be female. Nobody is quite sure how rare it is, since it can occur without any symptoms and wouldn`t show up without a DNA test.

Defining sex by sex chromosome types doesn`t really work. It`s an approximation that`s often close enough, but it`s not entirely accurate.

If Chas wants a sex change, fine by me. But I really get tired of people "explaining" sex vs. gender and getting all hot and bothered about sensitivity to transgendered people. Take your holier-than-thou rant elsewhere please. Same thing for people parading the fact that they are "cancer survivors". I will reserve my pity and/or admiration for people, not for social categories.

I saw Chaz shaving on a TV piece on his transition; I guess he was waiting for enough decent whiskers to come in before starting on a decent (?) beard. Amazing, that testosterone stuff! (I hope he loses some weight before he has heart attack, tho`.)

You know, I`ve been a reader for YEARS now and this is the last straw for me. You are disgustingly ignorant mods. Transgender people are not an effing "haha", it`s degrading and insulting. Chaz is MALE, and using "she" is not appropriate. Thanks for the transphobic flamewar here.

@ Cruddup:

There is a difference between sex and gender. If you`re talking sex, you are correct in that she still has the XX chromosome and, genetically, is female. HOWEVER, if you`re talking *gender*, which is the social construction of what makes a man and a woman and their respective roles, Chaz is a man.

It`s called hormones, making a woman grow a beard is easy. But no mater what you do, she`s not going to start producing sperm, so she`ll never be completely male. Still, it`s an insignificant difference.

"Still has a XX chromosome. Hormone therapy and surgery can`t change that."

You do realize that there are rare conditions in which a fetus will be given the wrong sexual hormones? A person will live and grow their entire lives phenotypically male or female despite their genetic gender. Most of these people and their families don`t even realize until puberty hits.

such a courageous person!!! It took at lot for Chaz to do what he did, especially since he was in the spotlight growing up as the famous *daughter* of Sonny and Cher. If anyone wants to watch the documentary, "Becoming Chaz", it`s an inspiring look into the physical and psychological challenges of being transexual (including commentary by Cher, giving you a look at a mother`s struggles).
