Pentacostal Christianity is the kind of religion where you command no respect if your own family is seen as being different, or somehow stained. It wasn’t necessarily a sexual thing—he was simply born very feminine.
I felt as close as I could to Chris without us actually being twins.
The other characters are generally sympathetic, and attempt to include Pat in conversations or activities.
An exception to this is when Pat speaks of sexual and romantic interests, to which other characters react with disgust or, at least, disinterest.
The sketches always revolve around the gag of Pat's unrevealed gender: the name "Pat" can be short for "Patricia", a female name, or "Patrick", a male name.
Girls, though, saw him as being too feminine to be sexually attractive, and a lot of straight men are attracted to pretty, young, feminine boys like Chris. He played the organ at church, and I would call him “church gay,” or perhaps it should be “church feminine.” I think of Prince that way. He went to a psychiatrist, to try and sort out his feelings. He could have had a girlfriend who understood his femininity, but if you are as feminine as he was, then the conclusion is, you must be gay. He loved men, because of a fantasy father image he built while his father was away—also, straight men love him. But then there’s no sex, so it’s very confusing for him.Chris did admit to me that he was raped when he came to America by a straight family man. He walks and he swishes in a feminine way—he was born that way.But his direct sexual preference is not blatantly for men; he has gone with women whom he has had chemistry with.Pat is socially awkward, to the point of impairment.Pat speaks in a nasal voice which is much louder than everyone else's around Pat.
