A 23-year-old UK man Scott Purdy claims that he became gay after his doctor prescribed him Lyrica (generic: pregabalin).
Shhhh… be quiet. They’ve found us out. For years, the evangelical right has been saying that we “recruit” since we “can’t reproduce.” Alex Jones even came close when he proclaimed that fluoride was turning Americans (and frogs) gay. Little did they know the real plan: turn middle-aged people gay by messing with their nerve pain medication.
Many Americans with diabetes, fibromyalgia, and other diseases that affect the physical nerves and cause pain in extremities have taken Lyrica or similar drugs derived from GABA.
The medication can also be used to treat anxiety, restless legs syndrome, and more. Also, it turns you gay. Like, really gay. As was the plan all along, I guess.
Purdy told the Mirror that he was prescribed the drug after breaking his foot and it caused him to lose his attraction to his girlfriend and develop sexual feelings for men, and now he’s “very happy.”
“If anyone gets prescribed this in the future, I think they should know what this medication can do. It took me a while to realize what it was. I stopped taking it for a few weeks and that desire for men just left. But I’m on it now; I’m very happy. I want to keep on taking it because it makes me feel happy about my sexuality. It’s made me feel very open. It’s liberating…It did come as a shock to people. I posted it on Facebook. I didn’t tell them the reason why but I just said to them, ‘I’m open; I’m gay.’ Currently, I’m talking to this lad on Plenty of Fish and in a couple of weeks, I’m going up to see him. He’s in London. It’s really what I’m craving right now. I want to be with him right now.” — Scott Purdy
