New York University Press
The LGBT agenda has for too long been dominated by pragmatic issues like same-sex marriage and gays in the military.

Heyne
Im Rahmen der NS-Wahnidee, einen »Homo germanicus« heranzuzüchten, war es nur verständlich, dass die Nazis das gesamte Geschlechtsleben der Deutschen unter ihre Kontrolle bringen wollten. Dazu wurde dem deutschen Volk eine neue »Sittlichkeit« verordnet, in deren Zentrum die erwünschte Vermehrung der »arischen Rasse« stand. Neben Frühehen wurden früher stark benachteiligte, uneheliche Kinder gefördert. Der Vertrieb von Kondomen wurde verboten. Schwule ... Weiterlesen
