But compared to this? Sex change is positively mainstream. Say Uncle links to this tragic story in the November 13, 2012 Daily Mail about...well, too weird for me to paraphrase:
Dennis Avner, the Nevada man who spent years trying to morph his body into that of a cat has died. He was 54.

Say Uncle describes it well:
Avner's operations have included bifurcation (splitting) of his upper lip, surgical pointing of the ears, sillicone cheek and forehead implants, tooth filing, tattoos, and facial piercing.

People who feel the need for such extreme body modifications tend to not only have issues, but subscriptions.I am not surprised that his life ended in suicide. Someone who felt so badly about himself that he needed this kind of weirdness is a tragedy -- one in which all the weirdos who chose to take his money and do this sort of stuff to him should feel some sense of responsibility. They did not make him so sad and sick, but by going along, they helped him to avoid confronting the real issues.
