so, maybe he's very much NOT gay. Wink

Of course by his age, he might be one Christ spoke of

"For there are some eunuchs, which were so born
from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made
eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs
for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let
him receive it."

In reply to: Response

some were born with no sex drive, or without necessary parts to copulate.
some were born normal, but were castrated, perhaps while captured prisoners
some exercised personal restraint and abstinence
last part, It's not for everyone, you can accept it or not.
