My fort is only about 2 years old but the only mayor it has ever had almost constantly has the thought "He is astonished remembering being re-elected." Meanwhile, my paraplegic legendary engraver is getting used to tragedy every time he drinks; "He feels hopeless after a major injury" because the alcohol slightly injures his lungs (they turn yellow in the body parts list when I check his wounds, which seems to trigger a health check that turns up can't stand=badly injured). His best engravings are masterworks of himself engraving masterworks about chinchillas being butchered.

I...didn't even know this was possible in combat.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The million dollar question now is, can this happen to dorfs (and other sentient creatures) as well?

Gelding can happen to any mammal other than monotremes (echidna, platypus) and cetaceans (sperm whale, orca, narwhal). The only "civilized" race that cannot be gelded are kobolds because they aren't mammals.

One odd exception to the afforementioned rule regarding mammals are batmen.  Regular and giant bats have geldables, but batfolk do not.

It still annoys me that you can't geld roosters/cockerels. Capons (gelded roosters) were a popular food in medieval europe, and even in Roman times.
