Default Man spends $50,000 on over 100 procedures to transform into a 'genderless' ALIEN

(and he plans to have his genitals, nipples and bellybutton removed next)

Vinny Ohh, 22, from Los Angeles in California, has had over 110 procedures
He wants to transform into a 'genderless' extra-terrestrial
The make-up artists believes he's neither male nor female

Make-up artist Vinny Ohh, 22, from Los Angeles in California, has
plans costing over $160,000 ((£130,000) to become a genderless
alien. He has already spent $50,000 (£40,000) on plastic surgery

Makes the Ken Doll man seem normal...

He needs to start suckin' down the colloidal silver, too. Make him into a proper Grey alien.

How much evidence do you need before you lock somebody
up for treatment and to prevent further self harm .

He's apparently having trouble finding a surgeon to neuter him, at least. No elective surgery for that procedure, unless it's gender-reassignment surgery. So apparently such surgeons see a BIG difference, psychologically and otherwise, between "I am a woman trapped in a man's body" and "I am an alien in a human body."

If there's no apparent danger to his life and no danger to others, and no actual offence committed against society or any person, where is the moral authority for the state to do that?

By any reasonable standard he apparently has a significant mental health problem ,
is self-harming and intends to inflict further self-harm .

There is a risk to his life because if he continues
down this path he is likely to become severely depressed and
suicidal ( assuming he is not already ) .

One wonders how his family feel on seeing him mutilate himself
and whether because of his mental state they have sought
state intervention which has been rejected .

After saying all that , if he can show he is rational then yes
it is his call .

Bri, did you read the article or look at the pictures? He describes himself as a self-obsessed hot mess. A few of the pictures show him very, very thin, I would think possible eating disorder. (I don't say that lightly, having been that thin myself.). He has shaped his waist in way too far for a male body, and likely for a female body. And he wants to chop off his penis and testicles...just cuz.

Sorry, mental health problems are very likely. He is hiding from who he is, while ensuring that he can claim that those who may fail to accept him do so because of the changes he has made physically, not because of the person he is. Sad. Whole lotta pain in that human.

So long as he is paying for all this himself and doesn't expect acceptance and applause he has every right to be an idiot
