Chaz Proposes To Girlfriend On Show


On Sunday, OWN is airing Being Chaz which is the sequel to Becoming Chaz. In the show, Chaz proposes to his long time girlfriend. I guess they needed that fairytale conclusion and Jennifer Elia was at Dancing With The Stars every week, but from what I have been told their relationship is barely hanging on and the only reason it has not completely split is because of Dancing With The Stars and the special on OWN and the hope they can get more specials or even a series on OWN. It is much tougher to do that if you are single.

Sorry, I can't really get into this.

I don't understand this. She is a lesbian. Her girlfriend becomes a man. Why is she still with him? Part of being gay is that you aren't attracted to people of the opposite sex.

Maybe she is bi? Being gay isn't always a black and white thing

Maybe she loves Chas/Chaz the person? Still, I saw a bit of their documentary and it did not seem like a good relationship. Chaz was behaving like a misogynist and did not treat her nicely.

This guy is becoming like a trans version of a Kardiashian. Reality show after reality show, relationship just for the cameras, claims to be a victim if anyone challenges him, etc.

Nice of him to pioneer the conversation about gender identity, but he can go away now.

At least he isn't trying to get a check out of his mom every month the way his brother Elijah Blue does.

Well, as long as he's getting married for the right reasons.

He is one incredibly unattractive person.

I watched "Becoming Chaz" and they talked a lot about this - the fact that she is attracted to women, not men, and that it's been a tough transition for her as well. She really struggled with it, this was not easy for her.

I don't see that ending well at all.

I have to say in his defense that I would not want to be Cher's child, ever. She seems too self absorbed to have been a very good mother. Being raised as her daughter would have been even harder than being raised as her son, I would think. There would have been a lot of pressure to be a mini-me--and if that "daughter" is actually a son on the inside--I would think that adult relationships would be challenging. No excuse to be a misogynist asshole--just a comment about some of what might have formed Chaz' psychology.

the older i get, the more i realize sexuality isn't black and white for everyone. there are many shades of gray.
i won't trash chaz because he's fat and unattractive. i wonder if people would be more accepting if he was slender and handsome?
anyway, i wish him well. i think his life's been very difficult and after all he's gone through to be who he is, i hope he's happy.

wow Nancer- well said

They looked pretty bad on the Big O. The girlfriend was not happy at all. Don't see this ending well.

By the way, isn't Elija Blue a cross dresser or something? I could have sworn I read somewhere about him having an "alternative" lifestyle or something.

I have a friend who is bi and had we were talking about sexuality and I admited to her that for me, sexuality is fluid as in, I once fell for a woman (who happened to be a lesbian but I found this out after i literally fell in crush with her qt first sight) and believe you fall for a person not their parts, so to speak. I never officially identified as bi because i am married and have never had a relationship with a woman (the wman i crushed on was in a relationship nd when she was out of hers, i was in one with a guy).
So, the point of this is that, for most people is sexuality fluid, as it is for me, or is it you like a persons parts? Make sense?
Sorry if this comes off at all offensive, i am just curious and not at all phobic of anything but spiders!!

lunabelle, like nancer said above, i, too, think sexuality comes not just in black and white but in many, many shades of grays for people. [Although when it comes to sex, i'd rather be using some sublime and/or bright colors instead of black, white and gray.]

When i was very young, i wondered if i might be attracted to the opposite sex but just hadn't met the right one. I was the kind of child who drove my parents crazy w/my 'What If' questions.

After some looonng years of dating SOBs [unlike people w/gay-dars, i seem to have a built in bas-dar which will draw me to the biggest bastard in the vicinity], i realized that i never woke up one morning and decided to hell w/men, i'll just be attracted to women. So for me, it'll always be the same flavor; it's just not a choice that people can make.

Hopefully i'm listening better when the 'pinging' goes off and am more discerning in general.

But i know a few people who [i believe] are genuinely bisexual. They aren't 'dodging' making a choice or trying to force themselves into a role that is wrong for them but is more acceptable to society.

I now believe that humans naturally have an infinite range of feelings and attractions. We don't all have one set or another; neither do we all have the same ranges.

It'd be awesome if we could let adults 'be' whoever they are w/o judging them for something that can't be chosen.
