Apparently, a Filipino academic had delivered a paper in a conference in Malaysia a decade or two ago, and before an audience of Rizalists from the region, had bravely proposed such a quaint and unthinkable thing! But far from being quaint or unthinkable, the idea that Rizal could have been a homosexual merits, I think, a braver and slightly more serious examination, though we must admit it is one which necessarily proceeds, even under the best of circumstances, out of a kind of scholarly malice—a malice that is inescapable, for it is the malice of presuming that such a question could have been intelligible or relevant to Rizal at all.
