    most jocks are closet cases anyway... how else do you explain the desire to be in so much physical contact with other dudes and then shower with them afterward?

    Or else a near-death experience brings him out of the closet.

    Sort of.

    WTF? How big was he to begin with? Let's say he was 250...he's now 150? Either he lost a lot of muscle (how effective would a 250 pounds of fat player be?) or he's now looking anorexic unless he was pretty short to begin with.

    Hmm, sounds like a possible "walk-in" scenario. That's a concept where a person's spirit, either during a near-death experience or in cases of extreme illness, makes the choice to not come back, and another spirit agrees to come in and "take over" the body for the remainder of it's lifetime. It retains all of the body's memories, but people notice a distinct change in the person's personality.

    Sounds like the incoming spirit likes to suck cock.

    Well, this is a malfunction, but it doesn't necessarily follow that being gay is a malfunction. Strokes can do weird things to the brain. Read up:

    Are you going to suggest that every foreigner with a foreign accent is "malfunctioning?"

    I think it's entirely possible this guy loved the penis before he had a stroke and found the perfect out.

    How sad is this though, finding a random story on the internet about a person deciding who they want to sleep with and using that as an excuse to push some lame sort of "it's a malfunction agenda". Who cares?

    Well, I don't think the spin is "it's a malfunction", I see it as "see? We are all machines, and you can't pray it away, assholes".

    Well, it's not what cpurick was saying, I don't think, but in a sense it IS a malfunction, just like mine is.

    for some reason - something that happens pre-natally most likely - our minds are deviated from the "normal" development path in some way. not unlike, probably, that deviation which produces autism. In the cold scientific analysis, a "non-standard" orientation, or gender identity, quite possibly IS a malfunction in the sense of having diverted from the biological norm

    (I know there's an argument that evolution "wants" a certain number of gay people but I think that's a rationalization)

    This event, if true, would be consistent with that. Strokes often "re-wire" the brain of the victim as the brain tries to adapt for the area that's lost and if it did accidentally stumble into the right neural pathways to shift his orientation, it would be pretty good evidence that being gay is "hardwired" and not chosen.

    Of course I know that people who'd rather not see that kind of evidence come along will simply insist he was in the closet all along and seized an opportunity to come out without it being perceived as "his fault"

    WTF? Gay hair dressers? Next thing you'll be telling me is that there are gay airline stewards, Broadway show-tune singers and fashion designers!

    I agree that the physical functioning of the brain/hormones is the source of our behavior. I'm talking religion and "sin" wise here.

    In other words we supposedly choose to "sin" by (for example) adultery as an outlet for our high sex drive, stealing as a means to get money to attract more women to fuck, killing each other because they took our mate, or we want to survive and save our own families. Or maybe they just like to fight and have a short temper. Maybe they have an addictive personality to begin with. Now let's say people doing these things believe in God, but still engage in sinful behavior.

    Now let's say someone has a stroke, or maybe their testicles removed in a mishap. Now they don't fuck anymore, have no desire or aggression and thus don't envy what other folks have, and are happy just to sit and drink tea and read their Bibles. They are in effect "sin free."

    So, are they behaving in a better Christian manner because they love God more/have increased faith? Or do they behave better because their chemistry/brain wiring is changed and thus their behavior and motivations are changing too?

    My point is some people will have an easier time being a good boy just because the basic drives human males evolved with are suppressed.

    A castrated bull is fat, content and docile...like the perfect Christian.

    I read somewhere (yeah, I know, anectdotal) that violent career criminals have higher testosterone levels than the average Joe. This would make sense if it's true.
