Jonezing for Jennifer Elia

Every so often I go back and re-read my old celebrity crush blogs, mostly to enjoy my fabulous blogging style but also for accuracy. Is #1 still # 1? Yes. Is #2 still #2? Sure… and so on. So much in-depth analysis goes into my celebrity crushes I never thought I’d see the day when I’d have to retract one of them. Despite feeling obligated to go through the sludge that is blogger’s remorse, I refuse to go one more blog without mentioning a celebrity lady love. Somehow I’ll have to figure out a nice segue to the awesome that is my latest crush, Jennifer Elia.

Go easy on me, I’m not fully retracting my Dances with Chicks Chaz Bono blog entitled, “Chaz Bono: Put Down the Hater-Ade.” Much of the sentiment is still the same. I still believe we shouldn’t hate on people for what they are, or (as Gaga would say) how they were born. That being said, I do think we should be able to hate on people for their behavior. If I don’t like you because of how you behave, I have every right to call you out for your asshole-y behavior. I love every LGBTer out there because I know how hard it is to just be you in this world, but Chaz Bono… you’ve been moved to my poop list.

Feel free to send me your nastygram tweets and emails, but after watching the latest installment of the Documentary series Being Chaz, I feel like it could have also been called, Being a Dick. Pun intended. I feel like you can always judge someone’s character by how they treat the people they love, and his treatment of Jennifer (his then girlfriend) was fucked up… don’t worry, I have evidence!

Exhibit A: The Barbershop Scene. Seemingly innocent enough. Chazzie B goes in for a haircut. He announces he’s finally proposing to sweet, sweet Jennifer and is immediately met with consolation. “Marriage sucks. Good luck with that man, Sorry to hear!! Har, har, har.” I understand that Chaz was instantly inducted into the idiot-clan that is the average group of dudes shootin’ the shit, but seriously? If I’m about to marry someone—BY CHOICE—I’m ecstatic about it. Just because Toothless Joe had a bad marriage doesn’t mean I’m about to. I’ll let the Chaz chuckle that took place slide

Could be.  I never saw the show, but I'm sure any celebrity kid has lots of reasons for a warped personality!

As a rule, I object to

As a rule, I object to unflattering facial hair and unhealthy obesity (especially if you have the resources to eat well and hire a personal trainer and sylist).  But I also uphold the right and freedom of every man to make terrible fashion and health decisions.  It is his life, if he wants to ruin it, so be it.

I support the right of every transman to individually decide what degree of transitioning constitutes manhood for himself.  And while, I wouldn't personally watch a show that talks about the specifics of his bottom surgery, I realise that in today's TV climate, people discuss all manner of plastic surgery in public.  I wouldn't watch a show about breast implants or butt lifts either, but I support his freedom of speech and equal air time to entertain those who like this sort of thing.

But I seriously question some of his motivation for wanting to transition.  I don't question his gender identity - he seems to me to be transman male.  However, he seems to also equate being a man with being a superior creature who is free to oppress and demean women.  He also seemed to be using his transition chaos as a license to treat his ex-girlfriend badly.  No man (trans- or cis-) has the right to treat women like this, so he deserves to loose the support of every decent person (straight, gay, or trans), not just his ex.

I wonder if his attitude

I wonder if his attitude might have something to do with being from a family where mom was the intelligent & talented one and where mom & dad made their living (at least for a few years in the 70's) making fun of what a small, stupid man dad was. I remember all the jokes on the Sonny & Cher Show about Sonny's uselessness and Chastity being trotted on occasion just to be cute.

Ban the nasty neck-beards

    Chaz is fat and ugly. That disgusting neck-beard just serves as a warning sign to others who may have otherwise been fooled into thinking he's a good choice in mating. This kind of behavior leads me to believe that Chaz was already an asshole before obtaining a dick.

   Jen is obviously one of those insecure hot chicks who does not realize her own hotness. Which, of course, just makes her 10 times hotter. However, I will say that hot insecure chicks can sometimes be a little loony and some of them date lower on the hotness food chain for a reason....but I also know that you love you some crazy, so this crush makes sense...

LMAO... I think I love you...

I didn't want to come out of the gate all mean and whatnot, but yes.. neck-beard = not good. If I could grow facial hair, I would have gone a slightly more stylish route.. like a railroad villian mustache. Fat and ugly is a matter of opinion and I would happen to agree with your opinion. Jen totally tips the hot scale.. I'm not necessarily at her level but I'm cute and I often smell good! 

Do I really love some crazy? LOL..  I'm just patient and accepting. When are we going to do our fashion extravaganza?!! BTW, I reread that blog too, and considering my gay male style I want to enlist the help of one of the drag queens from RuPaul's Drag Race. What do you think??? Laughing out loud

lolz to neck beards -- what

lolz to neck beards -- what is up with that? AND, what is up with Chaz talking to the media about "saving up for a penis"? TMI, Chaz. TMI.

Fallon Stone's picture

so glad you brought this up..

So I'm on the twitters and I saw this:

"@Cher, why don't you help ur kid buy a penis... why is Chaz 'saving up'?"

And I thought.. 1) too much info Chaz.. 2) If you don't have a penis how exactly are you a man [true ignorance on my part, but I always considered the penis the requirement for being a man] and 3) Unless Cher wants a penis, she shouldn't be obligated to pay for it.

Hi, Marcie!! Smile

Re: #2, Fal, sounds like you

Re: #2, Fal, sounds like you might be confusing traditionally accepted biological gender and gender identity, the latter of which can have very little to do with what you have between your legs. Plus, bottom surgery for FTMs is so expensive and typically yields such poor physiological results that many FTMs choose not to pursue it.

Fallon Stone's picture

I'm so glad you posted this

Cuz it leads me to my next question.. I 100% get the difference between biological gender, and gender identity. But (and this is what I hoped a documentary on a transgendered person would answer) what is "being a man" to you, Chaz Bono? Much of what I've heard and seen is that the real issue lies within the disconnect between the gender identify and the biological gender.. "I have a girl mind and a boy body." I understand the expense thing, but if that's what makes one a man in one's mind, then are you a man until you have that? I need to interview some transgendered folk... ooh!! Maybe I'll make a documentary!!

Not that I have interviewed a

Not that I have interviewed a ton of transexuals or anything but I did interview Kate Bornstein after a performance of her play "Hidden: A Gender". I have also spoken to a few or read or seen interviews with others and what I always hear when they try to explain the disconnect is that they don't feel like they fit into society's pre-conceived notions of what it means to be a man or woman. 

Now, maybe I hear it that way because I can't relate to what they're going through. Maybe it sounds that way because language is inadequate to express what they're feeling so that I can understand. Or maybe it's a combination of both. I don't know. All I know is I keep thinking that it might be better instead of changing bodies to fit society's expectations if we were pushing society to accept that there is a whole spectrum of people that fit into the labels male & female. 

Or, I might not have the faintest clue what I'm talking about. I'm just throwing it out there that it sounds (to me) like a case of trying to make the foot fit the shoe.

Hi there, Fallon Stone! I'm

Hi there, Fallon Stone!

I'm really glad you scribed this piece.... I remember watching the original documentary and Jennifer expressing her difficulty remedying her own politics/identity politics (as a feminist and as a lesbian, how to intellectually and emotionally work through a partner's transition?), while Chaz, hyped up on a shit ton of hormones, was raging right and left, all over the screen (If it was a renaissance drama, the stage direction would read '[The Chaz RAGETH]'). ...I remember thinking just "oh my" and "oh my."

....From all this dramz, it's been clear that Chaz is DEFINITELY Cher's offspring!

The Chaz Rageth

LMAO! I remember thinking the same thing from the first doc. At the time I attributed the behavior to the transition.. but as caramelteddy stated, I'm starting to think that Chaz just rages because.. it's in her genes. And I love the shit out of Cher Wink
