  •  here's a couple of guesses... (2+ / 0-)

    His harsh upbringing probably interacted with genetic and other factors to create the basis for antisocial personality disorder.  I will predict right here that there's something in his biographical material to the effect that his parents rarely if ever gave him any hugs, physical comfort in times of distress, or physical affection generally.  That is also a key factor in the creation of sociopaths.  

    Also when he was called a sissy, that probably hurt bigtime and made him react against it by overcompensating.

    And, only half-sarcastic, when his mom threw her girdle at him and it wrapped itself around him, I'll bet he had a bit of what we'll call "cognitive dissonance," including an unexpected boner after the fact.  

    I'm going to guess, only half-sarcastically, that his personal tweak and big secret is the desire to put on womens' clothing (and hang around in bars?*).

    *I couldn't resist the Monty Python reference. That's the half that's sarcastic.
