Enjolras is gay : confirmed
Fuck. That’s it. I was trying to read the notes on Enjolras that @silver-soliloquy posted :
I am not sure but it seems that I can read “seins de femme” (woman’s breast) to describe Enjolras but that’s not even what I want to talk about. No, what I can read for sure is this : “car uranien ou Vierge”. Vierge means virgin, but “uranien” ? I didn’t know myself. I thought maybe I had misread, but then I typed it into google and :
“Uranien is is a very rare word used at the end of the 19th century except by the Anglo-saxons, to describe male homosexuals that were until then called pederasts”
Victor Hugo writes that Enjolras was uranien and/or a virgin (I don’t understand everything he writes). Am I wrong somewhere ? How come no one talks about it ?? Maybe someone that’s been in the fandom for longer than me can help me ?
