Ex-Transgender Man (a Woman) Now Wants You to Call It an Alien
Being a human man or a human woman is so 2001. Everyone who is anyone in 2019 is trans, gender fluid or in the case of this lady, otherworldly. Jareth Nebula -- not her birth name -- was born a woman, then thought she was a man, then changed her mind again. Now she's convinced she's not from this planet and would like for you to play along. Not much of a stretch, is it?
Jareth Nebula might live on earth but he firmly believes he belongs on another planet.

Already Jareth has proven the "opposite gender trapped inside the wrong body" theory completely false. She thought she was a man. Chopped off her breasticles. Played the part of a boy, possibly including burping the alphabet while making fart sounds with her pits, then reversed course. Now she's saying the mother ship is calling her home. Meaning she was wrong before, but this time she's right? Based on nothing but her feelings. Related: SLOPE-SLIPPED: Man Turns Himself into Genderless Extraterrestrial.
Except if you scroll farther down the article, looking for the genesis of all this transitioning, you'll find this:
Jareth first felt he did not fit in when he was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) – which is a rare lifelong condition affecting connective tissue and resulting in stretchy skin and an increased range of joint mobility.
The condition has left Jareth in a lot of pain. So in my non-psychologist opinion, it kind of seems like Jareth is role-playing to escape her real life.
“I get to a chiropractor once every two weeks and see a physical therapist once a week, as well as smoking medicinal marijuana for the pain – but there is currently no cure for EDS.”
Luckily, Jareth’s work is very accommodating – but he claims his diagnosis made him realise he was completely different from other people.
In order to cope with the pain, Jareth took her condition and turned into a different identity. Instead of being the girl with EDS, now Jareth is from another planet. Rather than being an ordinary, everyday woman with an incurable disease, now she's special. Otherwordly. Now people on the internet tell her how beautiful and special she is.
It's all rather obvious, no?
Look, we all have different ways to cope. I have sympathy for people in this much pain, but it's tragic that our society endorses the mutilation of a someone's body while commanding everyone to give the stamp of approval. Jareth indeed needs help, but cutting off parts of her body, mutilating herself, isn't going to help the real physical and mental pain she's enduring.

Two things: being mandated to call Jareth an alien isn't going to turn Jareth into an alien. Nor is it compassionate to go along with someone's delusion when that delusion will one day lose its hypnotic power.
Where will Jareth be when the alien identity leaves her feeling, once again, all wrong?
