Praise: Dr. Neil Martin on Brain Sexuality

One of the points of contention in discussing equality for the LGBTQ Community is whether we are "born that way".  Dr. Neil Martin is Chair of Neurosurgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and serves as Head of the Neurovascular Surgery Section.  Dr. Martin says that we are.

The story comes in about a Welch man, Kris Birch, who claimed that a stroke turned him gay.  The story was first reported on the BBC and I will admit that I thought this was absurd.  It seemed to me that Mr. Birch was probably already gay or bi and was using the stroke as an excuse to come out.  Well, I was probably wrong, as seen on this clip from The Doctors.
