It beats reading another post about the Republican candidates. On the other hand…

“I could get a phalloplasty, which builds the phallus from a donor site on your body, but I’m leaning more toward a metoidioplasty,” Bono tells the magazine.

“It’s a procedure that uses what you already have down there, which has grown larger from the testosterone. You end up with a smaller phallus than with the phalloplasty, but it’s fully functional, it gets erect, and the sensation is all there.”

Bono, who broke up with his fiancé in December, goes into specifics about the size he can expect Little Chaz to be (three inches), and also explains the procedure’s hefty price tag.

    It’s a shame that so many of the comments are disrespectful, ignorant, and transphobic. Just because Bono is a public figure, it doesn’t make it okay to judge him. His decision to be very open about his transition is very much understandable: all the transguys out there need to know that they’re not alone.

      Bullshit Samuel! What is sad is someone so psychological troubled, so uncomfortable in their own skin, so unhappy with their own natural body, they want to mutilate themselves because of it! That is a tragic skewing of the inherent nature of humans. And there are doctors willing carve them up, just for $$$$$$. That is ignorance, that is disrespectful, and utterly inhumane.

      The is no such word as “transphopic.” Don’t trivialize this matter to a personal vendetta against Monotheistic religion. Something you happen to disapprove of.

    There IS such a word as transphobic. Being transgender is not something we know a lot about but research is showing that brain structure may have something to do with it. God? Well if a child is born with their heart outside their body are you going to get surgery or just let the child die because ‘that is the way God made them’. People are utterly disrespectful. Anything different and you want to shun it and poke fun at it. Thank you to Samuel for standing up for transpeople
