On my way home from work on Tuesday, February 21, 2012, I had the misfortune of listening to Mason rant about Chaz Bono's appearance on the Logo special, 'It Gets Better'. He repeatedly referred to Chaz using feminine pronouns and proclaimed that Chaz will not "be a 'real' man" until he "has a penis installed". The purpose of this petition is to tell Mason that ignorance is the root of bullying and the resulting suicide of the victim and to thank Chaz for using his public influence to help stop the tragedy of suicide and for his continued support of the GLBT community.

    1. Thanks, Mason, for proving my point that your comments perpetuate bullying!

      On February 29th, 2012, Micheal Mason (the deejay mentioned in the petition) friend requested my mother and my aunt on Facebook. Later that evening he started sending my aunt private messages in which he stated that he intended to sue me for slander. He also commented on one of my public posts that he wanted to "thank" me for the "free publicity" and that he intended to sue me for slander. Within minutes several people commented on threads on Mr. Mason's wall calling me a "tranny freak" and stating that I should kill myself. Mr. Mason also commented that I was "a coward hiding behind the internet" and "challenged" me to do an interview with him, and further commented "Bitch is going down". Immediately upon my accepting his "challenge", Mr. Mason removed his comments and blocked me. His boss has since contacted me and stated that he "takes these things seriously". I'll keep y'all posted on any new developments. In the meantime, please sign and share! Thanks!

      Mason should learn more about transgender people and their lives before he spouts off publicly about what surgeries they "should" have.
