Alfred the Gay

     According to post-modern historians, every historical figure was gay, lesbian, or somehow queer (unless they are a designated evil personage, in which case they are straight). This now included Alfred the Great. The evidence? Using passive grammar in modern English translations (and not the grammar of Old English, which is quite different).

     The article is called “Skeletons in the Closet: Scholarly Erasure of Queer and Trans Themes in Early Medieval English Texts” by Erik Wade.

     And yes so many in academia wonder why so many look down on them.
