Dancing with the Stars
I never watched this show before; never really knew what all the fuss was about. However, I did decide to watch it last night, mostly because I wanted to see how Chaz Bono did. I must admit when I first heard about Chastity becoming Chaz, I thought it was a little strange and hard to wrap my head around. But then I saw Chaz doing a couple of interviews on T.V. and I was impressed by honest and level-headed he seemed. I had to admire him for his courage. When I heard he was going to be on Dancing with the Stars, I was surprised. I was even more surprised at the hate directed at him. Some people thought he shouldn't do the show. I thought that was ridiculous. I decided to watch, partly out of curiosity and partly to support him. I think he has a very positive attitude. Were I in the same situation, I would not be half as courageous.
I think the kind of negative attitude that has been shown toward him is the kind of attitude that leads to kids in school being bullied for being "different". I wish everyone could accept other people for what they are. As long as they are not hurting anyone else I don't see how being "different" is wrong.
