This really bites me. You are saying Sinister is gay because of this fantasy? So if he's probably gay, then stats wise over 50% of the British male population was gay at this time!?!?

Do not try to force your misguided assumptions on Brits.

I believe s/he was referring to the upper educated classes, which was most certainly not fifty percent of the British male population. So perhaps you should try to not force your misunderstanding of the original point on your own manifest homophobia.

By the way -- do we mean homosexuality as an identity, or homosexuality as specific acts. Because the latter was certainly not unknown to the British upper classes or Britain in general (cf. Churchill's three traditions of the British Navy). So Sinister might have homosexual acts in his background, even if he would not necessarily identify as gay. Marlo Jones, Rick Jones's wife, had a romantic relationship with Moondragon but doesn't identify as a lesbian, I believe.
