Fox News host Megyn Kelly has called Dr. Keith Ablow's attacks on Chaz Bono “irresponsible.”

Ablow, a psychiatrist and contributor to Fox News, warned parents not to let their impressionable children watch the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, because the reality series will include Bono, the child of gay icon Cher and the late entertainer-politician Sonny Bono. Bono is a transgender man.

In an op-ed published last week titled Don't Let Your Kids Watch Chaz Bono On 'Dancing With The Stars,' Ablow says Bono should be treated with dignity and his contributions should be applauded.

He then adds: “Chaz Bono should not be applauded for asserting she is a man (and goes about trying to look like one) any more than a woman who believes she will be happier without arms, has them removed and then continues to assert that she was right all along – her self-concept was that of a double amputee. Now, all is well.”

“Chaz Bono should not be applauded any more than someone who, tragically, believes that his species, rather than gender, is what is amiss and asks a plastic surgeon to build him a tail of flesh harvested from his abdomen. If only a plastic surgeon would acquiesce, all would be well.”

During an appearance on Bill O'Reilly, Kelly reiterated earlier comments that Ablow was off-based with his remarks, telling O'Reilly that they were “irresponsible and dangerous and could result in some real problems.”

“This group of people is persecuted already and now you have Dr. Ablow telling people that if your kid sees one in a manner that is something akin to a celebration, your kid may wind up being one of them. Now there are people in this country that will react to a transgender person when they see one at McDonald's or at some event and that's irresponsible,” Kelly said.
