Gay post-stroke. That’s what a formerly butch rugby player is reporting in the Daily Mail – he was straight as an arrow, no gay friends even – and post-stroke, he’s as gay as can be? While the article over at CBS News talks more about this, I mean, I can see the potential possibility of how this could happen from a physiological standpoint, but I’ve believed that the ‘genetic’ aspect of being gay. I never thought of it as a physiological variance where another part of the brain is activated.
According to the CBS News report, the guy was very active – a rugby player, banker by day and loved watching sports and having beers with his friends. Since waking up after the incident which happened while attempting to do a backflip, he’s had to change careers (to being a hair stylist) and doesn’t play rugby anymore.
