Actually, homosexualism was a term coined a number of years back by a regular on the religion forum. It might have been quix, but I’m just not sure.
I can’t remember who it was, so I’ve pinged some others who’ve been around for a while who might remember.
I’m certain, though, that it wasn’t Jim Robinson. I saw it on the RForum long before I ever saw JR use it.
I don’t suppose you read JR’s recent article on defeating Obama, have you. Otherwise, you’d know that this isn’t an article that he would write, even if his brain did work like mine. (He’s should be supremely grateful to our Heavenly Father that it doesn’t. :-)
I sometimes employ the expression “gayism” to refer to the ideology as opposed to the simple moral failing. So I’m fine with the other word as well. It seems useful.
Just trying to set a quick base point into the duration of usage, not trying to find the originator.
No. 'Homosexualism' is a proper word.
'Homosexualist' is listed by Wiktionary as an alternative to the term 'homosexual', referencing the Oxford English Dictionary, and giving usage examples as early as '49... albeit that the term smells a bit arcane. It's use is legitimate in any case, as an 'ist' is generally a practitioner of an 'ism'... True enough that 'ist' is used as a bolt-on component even where the word proper does not exist, conveying the thought of a single practitioner of a thing.
And it is in popular use, as can be seen by plugging the word into a search engine. No doubt it's popular use predates FR.
Both are words, both are found in abundance upon the web.
caver's comment holds no merit, even if withholding it's vituperation.
