Trans-Species Woman Spends $50,000 to Turn Herself Into a Dragon

It seems as though, as a society, we’re through with labels. The world is slowly becoming a more progressive and accepting place, with gender and sexuality being seen as something fluid among more and more people. I, for one, am all for people embracing whoever they want to be, even if that means wanting to be… a dragon.

Yes, you read that correctly. A transgender woman has decided to spend over fifty thousand dollars in order to modify her body so that she can become a dragon and the transformation pictures are shocking. Keep scrolling for the full story…

A trans woman from Bruni, Texas, who claims that she is “the most modified transgender person in the world.”

Medusa has remained dedicated to this transition since she was a teenager, splashing out over fifty thousand dollars in order to warp her facial features.

Medusa, who was born Ricardo Hernandez, was abandoned by her parents. At five years old, she was left in the woods, where she developed a special bond with snakes before being found by her grandparents.

She explained that she was abused constantly by her grandfather, who really hated Medusa’s father, and, because she looked a lot like him, he took all of his anger out on her.

She felt as though she was immediately accepted by reptiles, as opposed to her parents, and she decided that she wanted to transform into one. She told The Wizard of Odd TV: “I have two mothers: one is my original birth mother and my second birth is to my reptilian parents, which are the rattlesnakes.”

That’s when the transformation really started. Now she has eight horns on her forehead, near her temples, and has tattooed scales all over her body.

She has had her tongue bifurcated and the whites of her eyes stained green so that she can closely resemble a snake. She talked about her transformation, expressing that it “is the greatest journey of [her] life” and that “there are profound reasons and deep meanings about why [she’s] doing it.”

“As much awesomeness and goodness there is in humans, compared to other species they are the most destructive and hateful. I decided at that time, that it was time for a change in my life, so I wanted to look like something that wasn’t human.”

Instead, the fifty-eight-year-old likes to consider herself as a reptilian “trans-species.”

You’ll probably be surprised to know that there are a group of people out there who identify as “trans-species.” By definition, being “trans-species” refers to those who identify as another species – whether from Earth or from mythology.

Evening Standard outlined stories of those who had chosen to take this path in life. They introduced us to Gary, who appeared on Dr. Phil.

He explained that it was because he “can get friends that way, people who interact with [him] as a dog.” He also pointed out that dog food doesn’t cost that much either… yikes.

If becoming a different species makes someone happy, then leave them to it. Medusa explained that she wishes that more people would be accepting of her transformation, because it’s something that she really wants.

“There’s a lot of misunderstanding about what it means to be transsexual and then further than that – something that I’m introducing – the idea of trans-speciesism. I consider myself not just to be human anymore; I’m human and reptilian. My greatest desire in life is to continue my body modification until my metamorphosis is complete.”

The general feedback towards Medusa, her story, and her transformation have been negative, with many claiming that she is “mentally ill.”

Which is the shocking reality of the situation. It’s just not right.

This was the only almost-nice comment I could find.

And even then, he called Medusa’s transition “ridiculous.”

On the top of her list of priorities is to get rid of “Mr. Bojangles.” And the dream may become a reality as Medusa is set to complete her full transformation by the end of the year.

She’s had to cut off many relationships in order to maintain her sanity during the transformation and do what makes her happy.

As shocking as this is to some people, I advise you to think and empathize. If this is making someone happy, regardless of whether you agree with it or not, they deserve to be respected. I mean, I could never go through with something like this, but that just makes it all the more amazing that someone else could. She wouldn’t be spending so much money on her body if she didn’t feel like she needed this. Eva is enjoying her life as a dragon and good for her.

Transforming into a better, more genuine version of yourself doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend thousands and thousands on surgeries. Sometimes, it just takes a little bit of dedication. Check out some of these amazing body transformations that will definitely make you smile!
