Rugby Player Suffers Stroke, Woke Up Gay

Ok, so reading the news and not really concentrating. Drinking coffee. And then bam! I read it, read it again twice and then once more to make sure. But I still can’t comprehend it. A British guy, rugby player & who also was working in a bank, suffered a stroke during a training exercise and was taken to the hospital. When he recovered he realized that he had woken up……..GAY!

I swear that I am not making this up. You can’t make up shit like this, it’s true. Chris Birch, who weighed at 19 stone before the stroke, attempted a back flip on the grounds and broke his neck and suffering a stroke. The 26 year old was rushed to the hospital where for days his fiance and parents waited by his bedside to recover. When he did wake up, as he says he “woke up gay”! Before the stroke he was never interested in men before or had gay friends, according to him. He spent his weekends drinking beer and watching sports but now is not interested in sports or women! Chris broke up with his fiance after this astonishing change.

He ditched is bank job, lost some weight (he is now 11 stone) and trained as a hairdresser and now lives with a 19 year old boyfriend in South Wales. Birch sought advice from his neurologist and was told it could all be down to the stroke opening up a different part of his brain. So he has embraced his new lifestyle and says that he is extremely happy.

What the fuck??

  1. So I’m guessing he always was gay (whether he’ll admit it or not) and either this was the wakeup call or opportunity, depending on how cynical you are.

  2. That’s what I thought at first. But it seems that there is a rewiring of the brain which can happen when you get such a stroke and that can change your brain mapping. There is an example of a man who after suffering a stroke, changed in that he now shows a talent for drawing that he didn’t earlier possess.
