  • I'd like a way to compare different "gay libel" cases that have been lodged, from Oscar Wilde to Tom Cruise to Liberace to Robbie Williams. I'm considering making a category, but the category name Gay Libel Cases seems anachronistic since the word "gay" wasn't used that way in Wilde's time. I'm also expecting pushback on linking gay libel cases which involved people later outed, like Oscar Wilde and Liberace, with gay libel cases involving straight people, like Tom Cruise and Robbie Williams. What do people think would be the best wording for a category like this to avoid offense & also avoid an overly long Category name? Markwiki (talk) 00:04, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
