A man in Guilin whose sis­ter died of an ill­ness more than 20 years ago has been dress­ing as a woman ever since, to com­fort his men­tally ill mother. The man, who is in his 50s, has grown his hair long and can of­ten be seen dressed in a

(a tra­di­tional Chi­nese dress) while ac­com­pa­ny­ing his mother on walks about town. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, he says he doesn’t mind be­ing laughed at, as long as his mother is happy. The man’s mother de­vel­oped a men­tal dis­or­der af­ter the death of her daugh­ter and is now of­ten con­fused, fre­quently mis­tak­ing her son for his dead sis­ter.
