The idea is that a stroke (or "brain attack") kills several brain connections, and that other connections then take over.
So one personality literally dies, and another is born.
So a bricklayer becomes a great artist.
Most people do not change sexual orientation.
But it has happened.
So now I think all the anti-gay haters are just a stroke away from what they hate.
I think it's just crazy and awesome.
Also the other stroke-victims he meets, and some other cases I've read about who became artists and mathematicians after a stroke.
So we have this potential in our heads to become completely different people (although something about the core personality does not change).
How many geniuses and different talents actually lurk inside us?
Few will ever know - and judging on how society reacts, they will be lonely, rather than celebrated.
I guess it is very unsettling.

A college dropout has been hailed a unique maths genius - after his brain was damaged in a brutal attack by muggers. Jason Padgett, 41, was left
concussed after he was ambushed outside a karaoke club and repeatedly kicked in the head. Now, wherever he looks, he sees mathematical formulas and
turns them into stunning, intricate diagrams he can draw by hand. He is the only person in the world known to have the skill and experts say it was
caused by his head injury. Read more:
I absolutely think its possible ( but dont all you gay-hatin xtians go around trying to cause gays a stroke). WOrking in healthcare for many yrs and
dealing with it in my own family... a frontal lobe injury can completely change personality including preferences. Strokes and brain issues can cause
someone to truly adopt a different accent! The brain is amazing.
Now stop obsessing over gays everyone. A scary gay may be in the ambulance that saves your life or a loved ones life. A scary gay might be the one who
gave blood to save your childs life. A scary gay may do a lot of things, but one thing they cant do us make you "catch the gay" by being decent to
them and treat them like human beings.
Many people throughout history have dabbled in 'special substances' and created the most renowned art, music, writing, etc.. People today do the
same, but are ostracised.
The brain does indeed hold a lot more than some of us are able to utilise given the burden of every day stress, life, things that hold us back.
A savant who cannot stand to be in public because they cannot stand the overwhelming amount of sensory input, can sit alone in a room and recreate the
most detailed rendition of a building they saw. It's all in there. How we access it is turned down to handle the levels of stress and sensory
overload we have to contend with daily.
So it's no surprise that people can suddenly become mathematicians, or speak in an accent (I've never heard of someone speaking fluent languages
they've never heard of, and I'd hazard a guess that they knew more of the language than they admit to, if this is true) after having brain altering
But sexuality? I very much doubt it. If it's not in there to start with, then it won't come out after such injury.
I knew a young lad once who was a fitness fanatic, always at the gym. Had a car accident and suffered slight brain trauma, and suddenly he was
withdrawn, anti-social, shy, put on weight and became someone completely different to who he was - these are things that are driven by motivation and
the ability to see an outcome. He lost that.
THe guy in the OP, was already gay. He just didn't want to admit it.
