The escalating global debate over genetic identity has taken on a new twist. In recent years, the DNA debate has centered around sexuality with individuals making headlines claiming to be non-binary and transgender.
Athletes who were born male but now claim to be female have been winning in sports competitions against young women who were actually born with female genes.
College students and even younger students have been caught up in the “transmania” and have decided to change sexes, including having body parts removed in order to change to a new identity.
Now there’s a couple who were born white, but they say they’re changing to become black.
The Daily Mail reports the couple were married last October in Hawaii and said they identified as black.
Martina Big, 30, from Germany, and Michael Eurwen, 31, appeared on the UK’s television program “This Morning” to talk about their so-called change in race. They both underwent injections using Melanotan, a synthetic hormone, to darken the skin.
Big claims the darkening of her skin came only after three injections of the hormone. She even told the baffled interviewers their DNA will be changed too, saying their doctors told them their kids would be born black.
One of the hosts of the show pressed her further on her DNA claim.
“If that baby is not black, because I’m trying to understand how genetically this would be possible, will you still be close to them if you give birth to a white baby?” the interviewer asked.
“Of course – it will be a mix of me and Micheal,” Big replied, “but I’m pretty sure it will be black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter it doesn’t matter.”
“I can clearly feel that I am black – but it’s hard to find the right words to describe it,” Big said.
Big even traveled to Kenya last year to be baptized as “a real African woman.”
