LOS ANGELES — A 22-year-old man in California says that he has spent $50,000 and undergone over 100 procedures in his quest to transition into a “genderless” alien.
Vinny Ohh works as a make-up artist and part-time model. Because he felt like an outcast during his teenage years, he was motivated to pursue various facial surgeries to look extra-terrestrial.
“Over the years, I’ve realized I’m not gay, bi, trans or any of these things. I just want to be me,” Ohh told reporters this week. “I want to be a sexless alien being. I want my outside to reflect how I feel on the inside.”
“The overall image I want to do is an alien. I want to be a hybrid, not male or female,” he explained. “I’ve wanted to be sexless and genderless since I was 17. I’ve been going to doctors to see if it’s possible but had no luck.”
However, Ohh did find doctors willing to perform various plastic surgeries to help him in his quest to transform into the likeness of an alien.
“So far, I’ve had $50,000 in skincare and procedures, including two rhinoplasties, facial fillers in my lips, cheeks and brow bone all to look extra-terrestrial,” he said. “I do kind of look like a Martian: I have a really big head, no eyebrows and I’ve just been connecting with that.”
Ohh also wears black contact lenses and talons on his fingernails to complete the look, and says that he would like to have his reproductive organs removed so he doesn’t have any distinguishing gender characteristics. He also wants to eliminate his belly button.
The Los Angeles resident says that response to his otherworldly looks has been mixed.
“Some people absolutely love me, see me as a celebration and give a lot of compliments. I don’t look real and people love it. Some people have said they want their kids to be like me and that I’m an inspiration for children who don’t feel like they belong,” Ohh stated, adding that others are disturbed by his appearance.
Ohh is set to be featured on the reality television show “The Plastics of Hollywood,” which spotlights those who have an obsession with plastic surgery.
“Vinny is an alien new generation of new people who want to look different. In 15 years, hundreds of people will want to look like him,” said producer Marcela Iglesias, according to the Daily Mail. “We’re in an era where there’s people who want to look like lizards, those who implant horns into their skulls and people with full-face tattoos like the guy in Suicide Squad who are working.”
“We want to be the first agency who will treat these human dolls, alien dolls and cartoons as a normal part of the society that we’re living in now,” he outlined.
Scripture states that those who turn God’s creation “upside down” are like the clay telling the potter that he doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Romans 9:20 says, “Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to Him that formed it, ‘Why hast thou made me thus?'” Isaiah 29:16 also declares, “Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay, for shall the work say of Him that made it, ‘He made me not?’ Or shall the thing framed say of Him that framed it, ‘He had no understanding?'”
