Amusing coincidence, interesting subject

The New York Times > Health > Mental Health & Behavior > At War With Their Bodies, They Seek to Sever Limbs a couple weeks after an episode of South Park "dealt with" elective surgery (specifically sex reassignment surgery, but also "negroplasty" and "dolphinoplasty").
"The Hippocratic oath says first do your patients no harm," he said in the film "Whole." But maybe the real harm, he said, is to refuse to treat such a patient, "leaving him in a state of permanent mental torment," when all it would take for him "to live a satisfied and happy life" would be to amputate.
...or turn him into a dolphin.
