Whoa, whoa, whoa! Sonny and Cher’s son, who transitioned from female to male, “would love” to talk to Brangelina about Shiloh. Hey Chaz, why are you making assumptions!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s 4½-year-old daughter Shiloh is known around the world for her tomboy style and rough and tough personality, but no one ever claimed she was actually transgender — until now …

Cher and the late Sonny Bono‘s son, Chaz Bono, formerly known as Chastity, underwent a gender reassignment, and wants to let Brangelina, and the world, know that there’s nothing wrong with being a tomboy.

“I would love to talk to [Brad and Angelina] at some point,” Chaz, 42, tells E! News. “To at least let them know we have this resource for them if they ever need it.” Did he just imply that Shiloh is a transgender! That’s taking it a bit too far, don’t you think?

Chaz, who volunteers for a support group for kids with gender identity issues, explains to E!, “I relate to these kids. The difference between them and myself is that I didn’t articulate it and fight for it and say, ‘No, no, no! I’m a boy!’ I have so much respect for these kids that do.”

And he adds, “People get too freaked out about kids and what to do with kids. If you just let kids do what they need to do they usually have the right idea.” Exactly, so why not let Shiloh live out her tomboy days in peace and stop assuming she’s something unless you know she is!

Chaz, who releases a new memoir, Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man, on Tuesday and also stars in a new documentary, Becoming Chaz, which he hopes will make people more aware of the transgendered community.

HollyMoms, do you think Chaz took the Shiloh comparison a little too far?
