Discrimination against Leonardo Da Vinci : The YouTube version

If you are visually oriented, the roots of the controversy around Leonardo da Vinci’s alleged identity as a homosexual pedophile are in this fifteen minute YouTube video:

The basic reason history has labelled da Vinci a homosexual pedophile is covered in the video.  It is anti-gay animus, plain and simple, as there has never been any real evidence that Leonardo was gay, much less that he was a pedophile  I also allude to two secondary reasons: bad biographers (one of whom was undoubtedly a pedophile with ulterior motives for accusing da Vinci) and the fact that he was undoubtedly close to two boys who may have been his adopted sons.
