This is not a story, but rather, my thoughts on Pete Edochie’s theory on the origin of homosexuality.
I’m sure everyone who’s not been living under a rock has since seen (or heard of) the viral video where veteran actor, Pete Edochie, shocked everyone and their grandmother when he posed his understanding of how homosexuality came to be.
If you haven’t already seen this video, here it is:
This may come off as unpopular, but I decided to weigh in on this.
Personally, based on my faith, I (used to) strongly oppose the reincarnation hypothesis.
But these days, I think I’m getting torn between religion and reality. Why is that, you ask.
Well, I am the fifth of six children, and the fourth son. My parents have just one daughter, who happens to be my direct older sister.
As a kid, I used to be super effeminate; I still am sometimes but I control it most times.
I also look very much like my second older brother and act almost like him, though I’m trying very hard not to be like him because I don’t like his overly fastidious nature.
The thing is, this brother of mine was born a twin. His twin was a girl. And she died in her second month or so. They were born in July.
I was born in July, too, six days before this brother’s birthday.
Now, I’m wondering: could his twin sister have reincarnated into me? Could that be why I like men (and girls to an extent)?
Can we talk about this or will someone simply tell me that I am overthinking things?
