10 Individuals Trapped In The Wrong Body
A lot of people, especially transgender individuals, have felt being ‘trapped in the wrong body’. These people often have the means nowadays to correct this; via hormone therapy or gender reassignment surgery. But then there are also people who do not have gender identity issues — they are literally trapped in the wrong body. Biological reasons, circumstance or just plain delusional, there are several stories of these individuals — from a 43-year-old man trapped in a 14-year-old boy’s body; to a woman who really believes she’s a cat. Here are examples of 10 people trapped in the wrong bodies!
42-Year-Old Trapped In A 14-Year-Old Body
Mario Bosco is 43 years old but still looks like he is 14 years old. Bosco suffers from panhypopituitarism, when one is born without hormones. He is 4’10 and works as a child stand-in actor and an extra for many TV shows and movies. He has authored a book ‘From Hopeless to Hollywood’. He has been offered to get hormone therapy to help him develop, yet he refused as he believes it would adversely affect his career.
66-Year-Old Man Is Actually A Woman
A 66 year old man went to a hospital to check on his swollen abdomen and was given with a surprising revelation: the swelling turns out to be an ovarian cyst! He learns that he is biologically female; and suffers from two rare genetic disorders: Turner syndrome, that causes women to not develop fully, and Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia, which causes an abundance of male hormones. The man, who has a small penis and grows a beard, decided he will continue identifying himself as a man.
