Peaking in the 17th and 18th centuries, "faggotry" was punishable by death in the British Empire and Colonial Americas where the pejorative term originated. Homosexuals could be burned at the stake, over ‘faggots’ or bundles of sticks. This, in reference to the bodies of homosexuals seen as nothing more than kindling or fire-starter. The piece lasted an estimated three hours before it was destroyed.
