Chastity Bono, child of legendary musicians Sonny and Cher, is beginning the transition from female to male, according to TMZ.

Bono's publicist, Howard Bragman, confirmed this, saying, "Yes, it's true -- Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity. He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones. It is Chaz's hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his 'coming out' did nearly 20 years ago."
If I could give ya a hug, Chastity, I would. This takes so much courage to do and it must be scary as the whole world discusses your life. He, like Adam Lambert, will inspire millions of peeps--gay, straight, bi, squirrel, kangaroo--by following his heart. Yeah, some will say it took him long enough because he's 40 years old, but I don't think it matters. What does?
His actions. What do you think about this? Could you date someone who has made such a drastic transformation?
