Transvestism, homosexuality, voyeurism, sadism: these would seem to be Gosson's charges as well. Had Marlowe's play not been written some dozen years after his tract, one might suppose Gosson had it in mind; the relationship is not merely the reverse, however, for an “answer” to the antitheatricallists, Gaveston's speech rehearses and repeats, virtually embraces, their charges — along with others, that associated the court with profligacy, and Italy with vice. “Bugeria is an Italian word”, the learned Justice Coke would write in his Laws of England; sodomy was an Italian vice.
