Naomi Wolf Faces Live Fact-Checking During BBC Interview

In an uncomfortable interview with BBC's Michael Sweet, Naomi Wolf's conclusions about the United Kingdom's 19th century executions of homosexuals - a main premise of her new book Outrages: Sex, Censorship and the Criminalization of Love - were publicly refuted.

Sweet explained to Wolf the definition and intent of legal terminology on which she relied, and his interpretation not only contradicts but seems to invalidate Wolf's findings. The pertinent part of the interview was posted on Twitter by Edmund Hochreiter and can be viewed here:
