Remember when you were a kid and had some really weird dreams? Like, be able to fly like a superman and save the city or be able to breathe fire like a dragon? Well, same wishes a trans-species woman, if we ignore the ‘breathe fire’ part of course. And she doesn’t just wish to live like a dragon but she spent more than 65k to complete her dream. This woman spent so much just to transform herself into a reptile. Insane, isn’t it?
A woman from Texas and ex-vice president of a bank, Eva Tiamat Medusa quit her a few years ago job just to transform herself into a reptile so that she can complete her dream of living like a dragon. She made several changes in her body to look inhuman.
She started by getting rid of her smooth human-like skin and got scales on her body instead. She transformed her nose and ears to look more dragon-like. And colored the whites of her eyes into greens.
This trans-species woman shared her emotional and touching story in an interview that how she was disowned by her parents when she was a 5-year-old and how rattlesnakes took her to their under their wing and took care of her. She was diagnosed with HIV then and started living like a man.
“For me, my transformation is the greatest journey of my life, there are profound reasons and deep meanings about my transformation and why I’m doing it. I have two mothers: one is my original birth mother and my second birth is to my reptilian parents, which are the rattlesnakes.
My big thing though was I didn’t want to die in this world looking like a human. 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.”
She no longer comes under the category of human. She now is recognized as trans-species. She bifurcated her tongue, tattoed her whole skin to give every part of her body the dragon-touch. Eva also attached eight horns on her forehead. She calls herself ‘Dragon-lady’. She also happens to have an Instagram account where she shares her pictures and motivated them.
One of the main reason she did so was to make a change in the society. She wanted to inspire people to do whatever they want to make themselves happy. To break the stereotypes of the society and live their life as they have always imagined.
“I would like for there to be an open dialogue about the world of body modification and understand what it was like to live as a gay man for 53-years and now as a transsexual woman. 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. This is what drives me – this is the reason why I get up every day and live. I hope that my story will help other people – not only those who have gone through hard times, but also people who have lost hope.”
So this was the story of the trans-species woman who completed her dream of living like a dragon without thinking about the society and its stereotypes. If we just look at the message her story has then it is quite inspiring for all of us.
