Body Dysmorphic Disorder Documentary

I watched a fascinating documentary tonight about body dysmorphic disorder. It seems that a basement accident horribly disfigures a young man though he is physically alright.

Towards the end of the film the man transitions into a woman, but that doesn’t really solve anything. “It’s just like your first haircut” he is told as he resorts to desperate measures in an attempt to get back to what he thinks is normal.

This is the story of how his family coped with the aftermath. It’s a story of courage and bravery, and it will make you question everything you thought about beauty. Fortunately someone uploaded it to YouTube earlier this year. Let’s go to the video:
