- ...polemic that is used today by homosexual apologists, that homosexuality was not seen in early times
Are they saying that homosexual acts did not occur? Or that no such term as homosexuality or homosexual was applied to these acts or the people who did them?
And what point are they trying to make? That "homosexuality" as a category (or concept) is of recent vintage and therefore should not be disapproved of? If so, what is their reasoning for this? --Ed Poor Talk 12:26, 14 August 2009 (EDT)
Is pederasty really referred to in the Iliad? The source backs that up, but it is itself unsourced, and I can't remember any instances, so I'm pretty skeptical.Cmurphynz 06:46, 18 October 2012 (EDT)
