Depeschen mit dem Leitwort David McConnell

»McDonnell does a commendable job pulling apart the terms “homophobia” and “gay panic” as woefully inadequate. In fact, dissect the title: by placing these crimes as uniquely American (and they’re not yet still they are), add the phrase “honor killings” and the bizarre, fatalistic masculine ritualism it evokes, and it becomes clear that homophobia is a subset of misogyny.«
