Term Definition

I survived Sodom, by Moscas de Colores

At first, is the name given to the people living in Sodom, the mythical city of Palestine, that according to the Bible, was destroyed by the divine fire because of the lack of hospitality of its inhabitants. However, as we explained in our blog article "Word of God", the word sodomite was changing it meaning with the successive and biased translations of the Bible.

First, the word sodomite was used to condemn any sexual practice that had no reproductive purposes, but with successive translations of the Bible, finally used to condemn only anal sex between men. However, in the beginning the word sodomite was not used primarily to describe the person, but was used to a greater extent to condemn their actions, ie sodomy, which in many texts also included sex with animals.

The first reference of the word sodomite appears in 1254 on a text by Alfonso X entitled "Judizios de las estrellas" and also appears in some regional code of laws of the 14th century, by its condition of being an insult that must to be avoided, with its variations like “sodomético”, “sodómico”, “sodomista”, “sodomítico”, “sodomitoso”, “solomico” and “somético”.

It is in this medieval times when sodomy becomes a crime severely punished by the Inquisition and in the great sin among sins, which until the 17th century was reducing its scope of application to finally mean anal sex between men.

Thus the DRAE, in 1739, defines sodomy as "concúbito between persons of the same sex or improper glass" and in 1854, "against the natural order."

In the 19th century the Napoleonic Code decriminalises sodomy to understand it as a private but repulsive act, and this legal change has resulted in the inclusion in the DRAE in 1884 as a definition of sodomite "native of the city of Sodom; belonging to the city of Palestine".

The last change in the DRAE about the meaning of sodomite has occurred recently, changing "committing sodomy" by "practicing sodomy".

The word sodomite among of being used as an insult and religious and legal texts, has been used too in medicine, natural sciences and anthropology. Today it is virtually obsolete.
