LGBT+ organisations are challenging a man who claimed taking painkillers made him gay.
Twenty-three-year-old Scott Purdy started taking the painkiller Pregabalin after he broke his foot go-karting, SWNS reports.
He claims that not long after, he stopped feeling sexually attracted to women and broke up with his girlfriend of six months. Instead, he says, he started to feel sexually attracted to men – and he blames the painkillers.
We notice my libido for women had gone and I was wanting male attention. I am with a girlfriend I had been with for around six months.
I have never been interested in men. When I was younger I was a little bit curious but a couple of weeks after I started taking it I turned around and said I didn’t find her physically attractive anymore. She knew I was taking Pregabalin.
He claims he stopped taking the painkiller for a few weeks “and the desire for men just left”.
I’m very happy. I want to keep on taking it because it makes me feel happy about my sexuality. It make me feel very open. It’s liberating. Pregabalin is also use to control paranoia and anxiety.
It make me so open and not bother what people think or say. I had been taking it for a few weeks and I have come to the realisation that when I take it I want males.
The idea that homosexuality is a medical condition, or that one’s sexuality can be change manually is consider an outdate – and worrying – concept which is closely link to rhetoric about gay conversion therapy and sexuality as pathology.
Purdy’s implications didn’t sit well with LGBT+ organisations.
