You sure about that? Where?I did-
This is not a source, this is an opinionated rant.Roman portrayals of homosexual activity and commentary such as the canard that Caesar was the "bride" to his whole legion are proof that homosexuality occurred, and that, while giving it to another guy was considered pretty common- that for an adult male to take it
from a guy was considered unmanly prove that Homosexuality, though condemned, actually occurred often enough to make jokes about it and use it to denigrate others.
This is not a source, this is an opinionated rant.Roman Catholic abuse of altar boys dates back to the time of Rome.
This is not a source, this is an opinionated rant.And both Michelangelo and Leonardo are confidently believed to have had sexual relations with the male artists they apprenticed under based upon their writings and those of their contemporaries.
This is not a source, this is an opinionated rant.do not have every book that I have read over the past 53 years to hand- (most of the several thousand books I have read I donated to others or to libraries over the years ) nor the time to look up every single instance of information and opinion they mention that lead to my current understanding. Suffice it to say that such references are in the thousands thru hundreds of academic examinations of past cultures.
This is not a source, this is an opinionated rant.And, again- first sources are likely to be in the form of rumor or denigration... because no culture in history wanted to openly admit that homosexuality occurred routinely.
And yet we know of NO culture in which it did not occur.
The intelligent inference is as I state it.
