However, intolerance toward homosexual behavior grew in the Middle Ages, especially among the adherents of Christianity and Islam—with each being near-compulsory in many cultures. During these times there were less entrenched heterosexual or homosexual social identities: a man performed an act of sodomy, without necessarily being constructed as a “sodomite” or particular sexual category. Under the new theorizing that I spoke of during the turn of the 20th century, however, homosexuality was no longer a collection of particular acts, but instead, an identity.
Christianity used the hysteria about homosexuality to milk money from callers who could donate with their credit cards over their new push-button phones. Unfortunately, this further helped inspire Christianity to move from the pulpits and into the political arena. The true propellant for homohysteria, however, came in the form of a virus. In the early 1980s AIDS brought such visibility that it solidified in every citizen’s mind that homosexuals existed in great numbers. It secured a public awareness that homosexuals lived and worked alongside “the normals” in every social institution.
In short, Wilde gave us an image of the pervert; Freud explained the disease; and Kinsey promoted its prevalence. It is this last stage that initiated the processes of men looking to their homosocial groups, knowing that one in ten are gay, and speculating who it was. This homospeculation, however, remained just speculation. This is because, apart from “acting feminine,” nobody could (or can) accurately determine who is gay. There is no litmus test for homoseuxality. I thus argue that the awareness of homosexuality existing as a static trait, an unchanging sexual orientation, was first thrust into AngloAmerican culture through the visibility of the Wilde trials.
