"Again the eyes of the two friends met in the firelight, and over the face of Sergius there ran a new expression. There was an awakening of wonder in it, but no uneasiness. Anxiety was far away from him that night. When passion has gripped a man—passion strong enough, resolute enough, to override all the prejudices of civilisation—all the promptimgs of the coward within us whose voice, whining, we name prudence, the semi-comprehension, the criticism of another man, cannot move him. Sergius wondered for an instant whether Anthony suspected against what his heart was beating. That was all."Source: Pall Mall (1897)

Who cares if they’re gay or not? How does this set back gay marriage? How does this affect gay people at all? What does this have to do with gay people in any way?

Why Heterosexuality Didn't Really Exist Until the 19th Century -
The history of straightness is much shorter than you’d think. An expert explains its origins.
Blank mentions her personal story at the beginning of her provocative new history of heterosexuality, “Straight,” as a way of illustrating just how artificial our notions of “straightness” really are. In her book, Blank, a writer and historian who has written extensively about sexuality and culture, looks at the ways in which social trends and the rise of psychiatry conspired to create this new category in the late 19th and early 20th century. Along the way, she examines the changing definition of marriage, which evolved from a businesslike agreement into a romantic union centered on love, and how social Darwinist ideas shaped the divisions between gay and straight. With her eye-opening book, Blank tactfully deconstructs a facet of modern sexuality that most of us take for granted…
This intersects in some really interesting ways with art history, gender, and race. I like how the book’s premise is framed, as a sort of inverted look into History via queer studies.
