If you want to be a different race, you're in luck

I have been feeling like something strange is going on with me. My old white body, with sore feet and tightening pants, is gradually transforming into, I'm not quite sure. I think I might be becoming a being with a different race. I think . . . I am . . . Dothraki! Yes, I feel the urge to ride horses around bareback, swinging a sword replica around, and screaming an incomprehensible pseudo-language. Yep, that's me. If you dispute my right to do this, you're clearly a racist. What do you have against the Dothraki, huh? Did they pillage the little village on the steppe you come from? Well, too bad. That's just our culture, dude. It's how we roll. Live and let live, or in your case, run away screaming with your hair on fire. We like to burn things.

It's hard to know what to do about these mental illnesses. Mostly, I suppose, they should just be tolerated. If grown people feel a need to be extremely eccentric, so be it.

But surely the desire to encourage/allow/instruct mere children to undergo sex change can't just be ignored, can it?
