Many historians have often wondered about Adolf Hitler’s sexuality. People have many theories; heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, even impotent. Some have even mentioned a coprophilia fetish. The only ones that truly knew were the ones closest to him. Several stories from Hitler’s supposed lovers have been exposed focusing mainly on what a sexual deviant Adolf Hitler really was. Hitler was an extremely eccentric man and displayed womanish characteristics, not to mention he didn’t looked at any women (Whale). He was known for male prostitution in Vienna during the time of 1907 to 1912 and continued that practice in Munich from 1912 to 1914. In the Vienna police records, Hitler is listed as a homosexual (Whale). The fact that he had no prejudice against homosexuals and yet enslaved them anyway makes Hitler the biggest hypocrite in history.
His supposed “relationship” with his half niece exposes aspects of his rumored sexual deviance. Geli Raubal was the daughter of Hitler’s half sister, Angela, they had the same father (HistoryInAnHour). Hitler offered Angela a housekeeping job in his retreat home, bringing her daughters with her. Right away, Hitler took a fancy toward Geli and moved her into one his apartments, away from her mother. They’re relationship was everything but normal; they got jealous very easily of one another’s habits. Geli was jealous that Hitler had Eva Braun and Hitler about the way Geli was so flirtatious with others and her many admirers (HistoryInAnHour). It was said that Geli had an affair with Hitler’s chauffer and, being so enraged, Hitler locked her in her room. She was asked many times what they did together, she wouldn’t go into detail but in the privacy of her own bedroom, he forced her to engage in acts that “sickened” her (HistoryInAnHour). Under speculation only, Geli suggested he made her urinate on him for his pleasure. When asked why she didn’t just say no she would say, “I don’t want to lose him to some woman that would do what he wanted” (HistoryInAnHour). Closet homosexuals like Hitler often dabble in same sex relations to get some kind of sexual gratification, which only leads further into Hitler’s deviance. (Langer). Hitler and Geli had many arguments because he wanted to control her every decision and she wanted to be able to live her life. Geli and Hitler were often heard arguing and Geli usually got locked in her room. Witness’s say they heard what sounded like a gunshot after one of their arguments but nothing is for certain what happened to Geli Raubal (HistoryInAnHour). Her death was ruled a suicide even though the trajectory of the bullet would suggest otherwise; she was shot in the heart (HistoryInAnHour). That’s an odd place for someone to shoot themselves with Hitler’s gun. If she really committed suicide, some people believe it was because she couldn’t take the sexual abuse her own uncle was subjecting her to.
Along with his niece came a line of lovers including one of his good friends. Ernst Rohm was one of Hitler’s personal hands and leader of the Nazi military, was said to be a “flagrant homosexual.” (Whale) Hitler had known about Rohm’s sexuality since 1919 when they first met in an exclusive gay bar, “The Bratwurstglockl.” (Whale) In the book “The Pink Swastika” by Judith A. Reisman, it’s suggested that Hitler was only the face of Nazism and that Rohm was the true mastermind behind it all. Rohm was the one that organized all of Hitler’s allies and fellow Nazis. Rohm took known sexual deviants and placed them directly in command. Historian Frank Rector said that “Hitler was, to a substantial extent, Rohm’s protégé” (Whale). They met at a meeting for a socialist terrorist group called the Iron Fist and Rohm saw Hitler as “the demagogue he required to mobilize mass support for his secret army” (Heinz Hohne, Whale). Rohm viewed homosexuality as the basis for a new society; he wanted his followers to flaunt their sexuality the same as he did. Rohm and Hitler organized…
