History of the term[edit]

I hit Google Books and saw allusions back to the 1920s, I think there should be plenty to expand this article with.

Basically the term is used by original Nazis and neo-Nazis and nobody else. Thankfully. - David Gerard (talk) 07:03, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

The History of the term is more complex than is presented in the introduction. It was introduced by a Protestant pastor in 1921, referring to sexual permissiveness. The Nazis used it for what they regarded as degenerate sexuality, primarily homosexuality, which they regarded as characteristic of communism. It is amusing in a dark way that the Marxists of that time thought homosexuality was a cause of fascism.Ariel31459 (talk) 18:50, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

About the real Bolshevists[edit]

The record is spotty: Lenin decriminalized being gay, Stalin recriminalized it, after the fall of the Soviet Union it was decriminalized and now, Putin is tightening the screws again (he's no Bolshevik... anymore, but a product of the environment and still authoritarian). Too lazy to look up the porn-laws, though.--Arisboch (talk) 16:35, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

Agreed, there's some good information on Soviet homophobia here. Not really sure how Putin relates into this (he's actually ranked positively among many of the radical right who use this phrase). – AOAPJM (talk) 21:44, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
