A make-up artist based in Los Angeles is seeking “gender unassignment” surgery to remove their genitals and become a “genderless alien”, the New York Post reports.
Vinny Ohh—who is based in Los Angeles—says their goal is “to become an exact, scientifically proportioned, sexless human being”.
“People talk about ‘gender reassignment’ but I’m looking to have ‘gender unassignment’. I’m looking to change my genitals so there is nothing there. There will just be a hole to pee out of.
“I want my genitals removed because life would be easier, plus I’m also celibate.”
The 23-year old has already spent $60,000USD on three surgeries and 110 procedures in their pursuit of becoming free of gender markers.
Surgeons have suggested that Ohh first transition to female as a precaution but Ohh says: “I don’t want to become a woman, I just want to have nothing”.
“For me LA was always about sex appeal, whereas when I think of alien I think of ugly. Aliens don’t really have a gender, in my eyes anyway.
“I connected with it and felt like, ‘I want to be that’.”
Renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr Payman Simoni says the surgery Ohh is seeking has never been done before.
“The experimental nature of the procedure means it is highly risky and it could also impact on basic bodily functions such as Vinny’s ability to urinate.
“This procedure has not been done yet, it’s totally new territory.
“This would be a brand new procedure and if something happens or there are complications, we don’t have any idea how to address it,” Simoni said.
Ohh’s sister Daniella says she also has concerns about their online safety.
“I really have the concerns about cyber bullying and real bullying during his everyday life,” she said.
“I do worry that he’ll change his mind about surgery later in life but the more we talk about it, the more it actually feels like this is actually truly what he needs and wants to be more authentically him.”
Ohh’s manager Marcela added: “I personally love Vinny’s look because I always like people who don’t look normal, or at least what society says is normal.
“I support Vinny’s transformation into becoming a genderless human. If he is ready to do it, and the doctors approve the surgery legally, I will by with him by his side.”
