Mind Fuck Tuesday: Animorphic Humans

I'm starting the series back. I missed it too much and there are so many mind-bending concepts out there that I just had to get back into reporting them for your own personal mind-scramble. Today, we check out folks who want to be animals--REALLY WANT TO BE ANIMALS--

(Wikipedia) Dennis Avner (born in Flint, Michigan August 27, 1958) of Tonopah, Nevada, United States, is widely known as "Cat Man", though he prefers his Native American name, Stalking Cat. Avner has spent considerable resources to surgically modify his body to resemble that of a tiger. He holds the world record for the most body modifications.

Goat Man.  In Utah, a man in a goat costume is sighted on a hillside, just hanging out with a herd of wild goats. Don't wanna ask. Don't wanna know.

Furries. Some say they're folks who just take anime too far. They want to become the human/animal hybrids in the graphic novels and comics and identify with dressing up like fluffy things and well - doing it like bunnies, I guess?

Conversely, even an animal wouldn't try to look human unless a human forced the issue.


  1. THat poodle one... well.. Your title was achieved.

  2. That's a far cry from someone who gets a tattoo or minor piercing, which is basically just decoration. In my opinion (for what it's worth) extreme body-modifiers are disturbed individuals who need therapy.

    Anyone who is that unhappy with themselves won't benefit from trying to turn themselves into 'their spirit animal' or whatever nonsense they tell themselves to justify disfiguring themselves so.

    But hey, that's the crazy world we live in now. Nobody should EVER be questioned about such things, because they 'have the right to be themselves' - which is an ironic way of putting it, because that's the LAST person they want to be.
