Inverted. Karl Westphal, a German researcher who studied 200 cases of homosexuality, in 1869 coined the term “konträre Sexualempfindung” which was translated into Italian as “sessualità contraria” (contrary sexuality). As the expression “contraria” could give an idea of rebellion or alternative, some translated it as “invertita” as it was so clearly shown the abnormal and unnatural character of lesbianism.
