Cher Defends Son Chaz Against 'Haterz'

0831_chaz_singleThe Web has been abuzz after it was announced that Chaz Bono will be competing on the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars."

Some of the feedback around the show's first transgendered contestant has been negative, and Chaz's mother Cher isn't having any of it.

"Lovelies! Chaz is Being Viciously Attacked on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS!This is Still America right ? It took guts 2 do it," Cher tweeted Wednesday.

“I support him no matter what he chooses 2do! God! will there always be haters! It took COURAGE 2 do dwts ! TG Chaz has an Unlimited supply,” she added. "Mothers don't stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who [expletive] with their children!"

Cher has been an outspoken supporter of Chaz, who was born Chastity Bono to her and the late Sonny Bono. Chaz's transition to male became legal last year.

Chaz has been paired up with pro Lacey Schwimmer, and don't be surprised to see Cher in the audience or even performing on the popular ABC reality competition.

"Dancing With the Stars" returns to ABC on September 19.

Oh great, Cher doesn't like "haters" having a negative opinions about her daughter oops son. But she's all to willingly and happy to give her hateful prejudice negative opinions and advice about someone eles's daughter and grandchildren's. Perhaps if Cher had giving Chaz up for adoption years ago instead of exploiting her on their show, she wouldn't had turned into a man. Some nerve Cher!!!

I think it is great that Chaz is on DWTS. It is easier for some people to hate, then to accept something they may not believe in or understand. All the haters have many insecurites in there own lives.
Chaz choice is just that. It does not effect my life or anyone else.Just becasue you do not understand,Don't hate..

Helloooooo. DWTS is ENTERTAINMENT! It's a TV SHOW! If you don't like it or don't like who's on it, don'*****ch it! Criminy. And as a mother, I'm with Cher. Say whatever you wish about me, but do NOT f**k with my family! To all you haters out there, um, Chas was a girl and now Chaz is a boy. And this affects YOU how? Get a life.

Chaz seems like a charming, level-headed young man who has been through quite a gauntlet. A lot of the "hater" crap I read seemed to be weight remarks which is funny because he looks like an average American joe. The transgender issue I guess is just too foreign to people and it makes them lash out.

"Chaz" is NOT a HE. She may have had her breasts removed but she still has vagina and not a penis. That makes her a she not a he. Even if she goes all the way with surgery, she will still have female hormones. But somehow WE are the people with problems?? I love myself the way God made me.

to the HATERS: your child is ALWAYS your child no matter what. If Chaz offends you then don'*****ch the show. No one is forcing their opinions on you. Turn to the cartoon network or does that offend you too.

I support Chaz to live his life his way, after all, it's his life, but I am amused that Cher is screaming about "haters." She has made some pretty hateful and uneducated remarks about we Tea Party members, things that I have found most offensive, so that's the pot calling the kettle black.

I don'*****ch DWTS but I will be cheering for you Chaz, I might even watch. Good for you!!!

My Theory: Those that hate are harbouring feelings *THEY* are unable to correctly process - so they aggresively lash-out against that "unknown" because it petrifies them beyond their worst nightmare...

How sad.
