Adjective[edit]

homosexuell (strong nominative masculine singular homosexueller, not comparable)

  1. homosexual
    • 1918, Heinrich Mann, Der Untertan[1], Leipzig: Kurt Wolff Verlag, page 49:
      Einer, ein Schauspieler mit einem Gesicht, als sei ihm alles eins, kehrte um, stellte sich nochmals vor den Stabsarzt hin und sagte laut, mit sorgfältiger Aussprache: „Ich möchte noch hinzufügen, daß ich homosexuell bin.“ Der Stabsarzt wich zurück, er war ganz rot. Stimmlos sagte er: „Solche Schweine können wir allerdings nicht brauchen.“
      One man, an actor with a face as if he couldn't care less, turned around, placed himself in front of the staff surgeon again and said, carefully articulated: "I want to add that I'm homosexual." The staff surgeon receded, completely reddened. Voicelessly he said: "That kind of scum, on the other hand, we don't need at all."
