I was going to post a reaction to some of the shitty comments that appeared on LGBT websites when Chaz Bono's transition was announced, but that's shit work that I kept on putting off. Instead of promoting that negativity, here's Cher's reaction:
"Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support. I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny, and although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding."
Cher goes on to say, "The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child."
One of the biggest gaystream icons out there just endorsed respecting trans folk. I hope the celeb power there makes some people open their hearts and minds.
