Man who lived as a goat says it was a special kind of time

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sat Nov 03, 2018 9:05 pm



A man has been describing how he was so stressed with his daily life that he decided to live as a goat.

Known as “goat man”, Thomas Thwaites, has written about his unusual lifestyle choice in a book, GoatMan: How I Took A Holiday From Being a Human .

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme, the 34-year-old said he made the decision after dog-sitting his niece’s “happy, joyous" dog, when he thought “wouldn’t it be nice to just have a break from all of this stress”.

He said he remembered thinking as a child that if he were a cat, he wouldn’t have to go to school.

“But rather than just letting my childish wishes go, I wrote to the Wellcome Trust, and they gave me a small arts award, which called by bluff, I suppose," he said.

“It became an investigation into how close we can come to fulfilling this ancient human dream. I did a bit of research and you can easily find all the cave paintings [depicting] half-human and half-beast.”

After receiving the funding, Mr Thwaites went through a number of prototypes, including a wooden structure, but ended up using prosthetic limbs and walking in a field with goats.

“I went to a goat farm in the Alps and had some prosthetics made by a doctor at the University of Salford prosthetics clinic, including prosthetic hooves and prosthetic back legs,” he said.

OK, so this fruit loop wanted to identify as a goat??

aannnnnd, doubless there are those who say it is his right to, and that he's not really mentally ill, or at least a bit perculiar

and that trans specisism is perfectly "normal" and OK?

so now do we have to have LGBTQ"S"

He is a bit of a fraud, though...

How many goats do you see wearing clothes and shoes  ?!?

And how far did he get trying to live on all that grass and weeds  ?

(Only three days by that story --  that's only a 'weekend', not a "life"..).

Does anyone else think that perhaps he dressed as a goat and lived as a goat so he could fuck a goat?

The goat just off his right shoulder seems to have sussed him out already.
