Ex - 'Transgender Man' Now Says She Identifies as an 'Agender Alien'
Jareth Nebula was born a woman before transitioning into a man four years ago. The 33-year-old has now revealed that it doesn’t belong to any gender, and is, in fact, an alien.
Nebula, who works as a barber’s shop receptionist and a model, thought it had finally found itself when it became a man at age 29, The Mirror reports. However that feeling was fleeting and Nebula soon realized it wasn’t male or female, or even human.
“I don’t think or feel like humans. I can’t really explain it to others – I’m simply otherworldly,” Nebula said.
“I didn’t feel comfortable as either gender or even anything in between. I know I’m stuck in a human form and that’s how I’m perceived by others – but to me, I’m an alien with no gender.”
Nebula, who doesn’t mind being described as ‘he’ or ‘she’ but prefers ‘it’, first began to realize that it was unusual when it was diagnosed with a rare group of genetic connective tissue disorders called Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS).
It had lived with the rare condition all its life but was only diagnosed at 26 when it identified as a woman. EDS results in stretchy skin and an increased range of joint mobility. It can cause chronic pain.
