Chaz Bono should not be applauded for asserting she is a man (and goes about trying to look like one) any more than a woman who believes she will be happier without arms, has them removed and then continues to assert that she was right all along—her self-concept was that of a double amputee. Now, all is well.
Member of the “Fox News Medical A-Team,” Dr. Keith Ablow • In an unbelievably insensitive piece about Chaz Bono, the transgendered man who is about to become one of the latest contestants on “Dancing With the Stars.” Ablow, who goes on and on about how he disagrees with Bono’s choice, admits he will take heat for the article. “I already have for making similar statements in the past,” he notes. “So be it. I would rather be the one shouting ‘The Emperor has no clothes!’ than one of the happy-go-lucky villagers applauding the tragic parade.” Look, Bono is taking a lot of heat from conservatives for his decision to do DWTS, some of it clearly unnecessary. Ablow is just throwing chum in the ocean to whet the sharks’ appetite. source(via • follow)
