    ok...

    I'd have to agree with the doctors in the article and say its more likely that the stroke didn't turn him gay, but that he finally came out/ "realized" he was gay after the stroke.

    The brain can do weird things when it malfunctions like that.

    I heard a news story once that a woman had a stroke, went into a coma, and woke up with a British accent. She can't get rid of it, and she's never been to England in her entire life. No one can explain it.

    Could you imagine being his fiance. You sit there and worry about him and he wakes up and wants nothing to do with you.

    That's so strange! I'd want an Irish accent if I could wake up with one ... or to be able to roll my r's really well for my Spanish, lol.

    ummmm I don't buy it.  I mean I'm not 100% sure that there isn't some medical complication from having the stroke that COULD have led to a change in personality but that's 180 degrees turn around.  I think it was an easy excuse to not have to be the manly man any more.

    Honestly, we have no idea what makes a straight person straight and a gay person gay, so while I wouldn't bet that the stroke turned him gay, I also wouldn't bet against it.

    Seriously? Having a stroke is getting "an easy excuse"? I can't imagine anyone being so unhappy that their first thought upon recovering from a stroke is "hey, great, now I have an excuse to make a change."

    I kinda buy it. The brain is an immensely complex organ, and it controls every aspect of our personalities. We're only just starting to understand how the different areas of the brain affect behavior, hormone production, perception, etc. I don't think this story is that far-fetched at all.
