Cher and Chaz

Perhaps inevitably, creeps on the internet are upset that Cher's transgendered son Chaz Bono is set to be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. Also inevitably, Cher is having none of it

The singer vented her feelings on Twitter, writing, "Chaz is Being Viciously Attached on Blogs & Message boards about being on DWTS! This is Still America right? It took guts 2 do it," continuing, "Mothers don't stop Getting angry with stupid bigots who fk with their children!" 

Well said, or at least as well said as anything can really be on Twitter. For his part Chaz said, "Thanks for all your support mom. The haters are just motivating me to work harder and stay on DWTS as long as I possibly can." 

At this rate, we might just end up with the first season of Dancing with the Stars that I actually bother watching.
