    Greeks tolerated pederasty for a brief periof so homosexuality = pedophilia, literally

      Pederasty amongst Greek men and as a "rite of passage" of sorts to bring young men into Greek society was definitely far more normal than it is in the U.S.

      this also isn't literature though, so go read a book

      neh, the bigger issue is confusing a specific subset of a thing for the whole, namely, Greek "homosexuality" was essentially a kind of pederasty/pedophilia, being a grown ass adult and a bottom was not accepted like today, and even being the top for an adult male IIRC wasn't exactly liked much either even if it wasn't as bad

      what about the sacred band of thebes?

      Even during the pederastic period, men who had been penetrated / against their will or otherwise were barred from voting and citizenry. It was also the death penalty in Athens to pork a free man sons butt. So , their level of gay is totally misrepresented by the media. They even had a slur for gays called kinaidos.

      Pederasty was a master/apprentice relationship and was never intended to include sex. It was criticized by Ancient Greeks that fricking a child in your care was immoral, but the wealthy Athenians did it anyway.
      Plato even has a section in Symposium where he describes parents hiding their children from the wealthy for fear that they would be manipulated and essentially kidnapped by extremely rich homosexual pedophiles.

            I just finished reading Xenophon, and it wasn't just the Spartans or just the Athenians, it was ALL THE "Greeks", including the Persians that had specific references gay references.

            Gays have always existed and the ancient world doesn't seem to have been overly bothered by it, but accepted it as natural (natural in the sense that it occurred frequently).

            It seems only to have later been made taboo by Abrahamic demon cults.

            Most old religions were just warlord cults whose "moral values" were instilled to promote war-like behavior. Over time these evolved into Abrahamic religions (as well as others, but i doubt you're interested in anything else). That's why there's so many similarities between Canaanite, Babylonian, Chaldean, Egyptian, Greek, etc. cults and Abrahamic cults, they all borrowed and mimicked each other.

            You saying that "Law" proves something, i'm saying that it doesn't. You don't even have to make something a "law" if people aren't engaging in said practice. Gays have existed since ancient times, and it was considered NATURAL. Your "law" doesn't alter that fact. If Nature didn't want gays to exist, then Nature wouldn't produce gays, it's that simple. Your "laws" aren't even natural laws, they're just arbitrary man-made laws.

            yes pedophiles are naturally occurring, and still occurs even when laws are passed "banning pedophilia".
            The difference though is that mutually consensual gay sex between two adults is a different scenario than predatory sex between an pedophile adult and an unconsenting child.

            Though funnily enough, abrahamic demonic cults are totally okay with pedophilia, just so long as the child is a girl and the pedophile is a male.

            okay so you're a literal pedophile. My question is why would you attack gay people in some bid to get pedophilia legalized?

            Children are considered too stupid to give consent, and while adults are often stupid too, children really do warrant that stereotype. Just look at all those kids eating tidepods, or basing their sense of self-worth on whether they own a Stanley cup or not.

            Laws have hence been passed in an attempt to protect children from pedophiles like you. Even though a child thinks they can "give consent", society has passed laws to prevent them from being taken advantage of by creeps like you.

            Two gay adults having buttsex is far less destructive to society than pedophile creeps like you.

            Read about the bacchuscultus.
            That being said, noone denied it being natural, just like pedophiles, but the natural wasn't commonly displayed. We all agree till this point, the real question is thus: "How common was it for nature's rejects to show their behaviour in public, especially with all these laws against them, in times where violence was far more prevalent."

            maybe not in this thread, i admit i didn't read the whole thread.
            But it absolutely has been argued elsewhere that "gays are unnatural", the argument being that since gays don't reproduce like heterosexuals that therefore it's "not natural". But that's a twisting of the word "natural", since not all things in Nature reproduce, and even animals have been documented to have gay sex/relationships.

            >how common was it for nature's rejects to show their behavior in public

            Incidentally, i'm pretty much against all religions, ancient or otherwise. I've studied enough comparative religions and mythologies to realize that they're extremely muddled with each other, there's nothing unique about any of them, Abrahamics drew on other religions, Greeks did too, so on and so forth. I sorta just lump them all in with each other since they're nothing that really separates them from each other 100%. Abrahamics engaged in blood sacrifices just like the "evil satanic cults of Canaan and Babylon". While i'm definitely open to the idea of a Creator/Creatrix of some sort, i'm not in any shape or form convinced that any of the religions "got it right".

            except that even with the anti-Nature crowd (i.e. Abrahamic religious cultists) it's still very much a thing, since they wouldn't bring up how "unnatural" gays are (because they can't have reproduce and have children of their own).

            It's difficult to be 100% anti-Nature when we (including you) EXIST IN NATURE 100%.

            Read about the bacchuscultus.
            That being said, noone denied it being natural, just like pedophiles, but the natural wasn't commonly displayed. We all agree till this point, the real question is thus: "How common was it for nature's rejects to show their behaviour in public, especially with all these laws against them, in times where violence was far more prevalent."

            not at all, "younger women" is very different from pedophilia, which is what i was talking about. And with that i do have a problem, especially when that same crowd advocating literal pedophilia tries to condemn homosexuality (between adults) and hilariously tries to lump all homosexuals as pedophiles! lol

            no, homosexuality isn't a problem at all. Consenting adults having sex isn't anything to worry about.

            But adults who prey on children is definitely a problem.

            What is the difference? Every gay might not be a pedophile, but every gay was molested by a gay pedophile

            that's completely false. Plenty of gays were never molested as children.

            So how exactly is homosexuality a problem?

            Now religion on the other hand IS a problem. All it does is trick otherwise decent people into hating other people, even to the point where they're willing to kill someone else just for "believing in the wrong god", or for being the wrong color of skin, or for loving the wrong gender. Abrahamic religions need to be banned.

            the problem isn't homosexuality in the situation you're describing, the problem is pedophilia.

            Little girls get molested and raped by older men even more frequently than little boys do. Most of them don't turn out lesbian, just as most little boys that get molested don't turn out gay.

            The issue isn't homosexuality, the issue is pedophilia.

            Still, almost every gay man I know had someone like that in his past or was groomed. I don't even care about the optics, it's just I do think people should know this happens.

            it's ALWAYS underreported.

            Wait a sec, are you trying to suggest that more little boys are molested than little girls? Because on that i KNOW you'd be wrong, because i researched into that subject about a year ago and the results were ridiculously skewed towards girls being molested by older men FAR MORE than little boys being molested by older gay men. (which makes sense because gays are such a smaller portion of the total population)

            americans don't worship gay culture, they just tolerate gays. That's literally it.

            >dude did a lot of research on pedophiles, i wonder why....
            because people on /misc/ were making the claim that gays were all pedophiles, and that more boys were being molested than girls were. So i researched it and it was no comparison, far more girls were being molested (because there more straight people, duh).

            So then the argument devolved to "well gays molest at a higher rate than straight pedophiles" and that turned out to be false too. (Another "duh!" moment, because many places around the world literally condone older men marrying little girls, even places in the US still do this, and it's very common in other places around the world)

He said he struggled with gay thoughts for years and wanted to kill himself. A lot of therapy groups aimed at sexual abuse treatment don't even know how to handle homosexual cases. It's quite sad.

            the problem isn't homosexuality in the situation you're describing, the problem is pedophilia.

            Little girls get molested and raped by older men even more frequently than little boys do. Most of them don't turn out lesbian, just as most little boys that get molested don't turn out gay.

            The issue isn't homosexuality, the issue is pedophilia.

            not sure what you're getting at. Are you trying to make the claim that it was "just a few elites that had gay sex"? While i'm sure that's true, i'm also sure that there were "just a few non-elites that had gay sex". That's the thing about homosexuality, it occurs everywhere in rare amounts, across ethnic, cultural and economic boundaries. And laws don't change that. But the fact that it was written about so casually in Xenophon, Thucydides et al. is interesting.

            what's silly is obviously closeted gay men trying to claim that the ancient Spartans/Greeks frowned on gay buttsex, and then trying to use that as a moral indictment against modern America/world. That's silly. My not taking the time to scan documents (which btw, it was claimed i never read the book, and i don't see that guy apologizing for claiming that lol) is just mildly annoying at worse. Not silly though 😛

            homosexuals are only tolerated in the west if they're friendly to women. This wasn't the case for the ancient world or most other parts of the world that practiced homosexual acts. no one cares as long as you top.

            Constitution of the Lacedaemonians.

            Also to point out, I wrote this a few years ago after taking a course on Classical Athens. The focus of my statement is to show the fault with the modern lens on Greek homosexuality (which typically takes its call-book from Athenian authors which is misinterpreted from the Athenian context). I am also very glad the anon who quoted Xenophon made a break into the discussion to focus on Greek societies outside of Athens.

            Yeah, knowledge about other Greek polities is much harder to come by. But some poetry also serves as a witness to similar practices prior to 5th-century Athens (Solon, Theognis, Anacreon, Ibycus, Sappho).
            Also worth noting that the earliest Greek poetry we have from a confirmed actual individual author includes (heterosexual) erotic poetry of a very straightforward nature. Lends credence to the whole idea that the average person's received assumptions about ancient people might in fact be both stupid and moronic.

            Much like today, paedophilia nad pederasty was the preserve of the wealthy ruling class.

            It was also celebrated in poetry though, and I don't think it could be reasonably compared with "counterculture" or "subversive" modern stuff, at worst it's decadent but this was not really in a decadent period, just in a rather permissive courtly milieu.

    neh, the bigger issue is confusing a specific subset of a thing for the whole, namely, Greek "homosexuality" was essentially a kind of pederasty/pedophilia, being a grown ass adult and a bottom was not accepted like today, and even being the top for an adult male IIRC wasn't exactly liked much either even if it wasn't as bad

      In the Greco-Roman world, it sexual relations thought of in terms of penetrated/penetrator, not in terms of the sex of those involved. It was considered demeaning for a male to get penetrated, and was looked down on. In fact boys in pederastic relationships were rarely assfricked. Their thighs were oiled up and they were fricked between the legs.
      Sometimes the relationships between the erastes and eromenos were purely platonic too. The younger male was expected to resist the older male's advances and it was seen as unbecoming for him to just be like "yes daddy". The arrangement was set to end as soon as the younger male sprouted facial hair as well.

    They say it was, in some places, in certain ways, not outlawed, and that it was in fact celebrated in literature and culture (although it was also satirized and attacked), not that every Greek person was gay. This is considered notable because most people associate pre-modern history with Christianity, under which sodomy was expressly forbidden, and they assume that "older = more conservative" so these facts about confuses their little brains.

    Considering that in Sparta it was required for every initiate spartan to have an older male personal tutor who “showed them the way of love” and that they were only allowed to see their wives for brief conjugal visits like once a year I’d say it was a decent bit gayer than our world. I forget who it was but there was an Athenian who was exiled to Sparta and grew accustomed to their way of life and when he returned to Athens he had to defend them because the Athenians thought they were all gay lol.

            That’s not how it works. A citizen’s child wouldn’t simply be placed into slavery, that would be a blasphemy of civic custom. You have to remember to the Greeks, everything was sacred and mediated by sacred rites. That’s why Socrates was put to death.

            Even if you admit that male lover was a thing, it doesn’t really imply sodomy. iirc out of the 30 thousand or so pieces of pottery, the number that show homoerotic behaviour are in the tens if not single digits.

        The Greek people, because they were Aryan, had too much common sense, and because they were Semitic, had too much wit, not to feel that their situation was worthless and that there had to be a better political organization. But for the reason that the contents could not embrace the container, the Greek people did not put themselves outside themselves and did not rise to understand that the source of the evil was in the dazzling absolutism of the governmental principle. It sought in vain the remedy in the secondary means. At the most beautiful time, between the Battle of Marathon and the Peloponnesian War, all the eminent men leaned towards the vague opinion that today we would call conservative. They were not aristocrats, in the true sense of the word (1). Neither Aeschylus nor Aristophanes wished for the restoration of the perpetual or decennial archontat; but they believed that, in the hands of the rich, the government had chance of functioning with more regularity than when it was given to the sailors of Piraeus and the slackers of Pnyx.

            No one noticed the real evil and could not, since it was due to the intimate constitution of the Hellenic races. All the inventors of new systems, starting with Plato, missed, without suspicion; what do I say, they took it, on the contrary, as the main element of their reform plans. Socrates provides perhaps the only exception. By seeking to render the idea of vice and virtue independent of political interest, and to elevate the inner man alongside and outside the citizen, this rhetorician had at least glimpsed the difficulty. So I understand that the homeland has not done him grace, and I am not at all surprised to see that in all parties, and especially among the conservatives, there have been voices, among which that of Aristophanes was unfairly counted, to ask for his punishment and bring his sentence. Socrates was the anthagonist of absolute patriotism. As such, he deserved this system to knock him. Yet there was something so pure and noble about his doctrine that honest people were in spite of themselves. Once in the tomb, the sage was regretted, and the people gathered in the theater of Bacchus burst into tears when the choir of the tragedy of Palamedes, inspired by Euripides, sang these sad words: "Greeks, you have put to death the most learned nightingale of the Muses, who had done no harm to no one, Greece's most learned figure." If the sky had suddenly rekindled him, no one would have listened to him anymore. It was the nightingale of the Muses that we regret, the eloquent man, a skilled discussor, an ingenious logician. Artistic dilettantism wept, the heart grieved; as for the political sense, it was inconvertible, because it is an intimate, integral part of the very nature of races, and reflects their faults as well as their qualities.

    I wrote this for a few friends a while back when they asked me (t. Classics major):
    The status of homosexuality in Ancient Greece is a very complicated question for several reasons: the sources which we have for the most part come from authors with an aristocratic bent, the notions of sexuality today do not transfer to ancient culture, and depictions of male-on-male (let alone female-on-female) relations and/or relationships are incredibly rare. The issue of the aristocratic bent is that when people talk about homosexuality in Greece (specifically Athens) and use literary sources they do not understand the cultural context; Ancient Athens had a social context that allowed pederasty and in which it happened often among the elite. The relationship was assymetrical with the older men (refered to as erastes, meaning "lover") seeking younger men (eromenos, meaning "beloved", being as young as 13 I believe). This sexual relationship was seen as an exchange typically, with the eromenos benefiting by gaining social and political connections through their erastes while the erastes derived the pleasure of being with the eromenos. However, despite this being present in the culture, many opposed it as plannly immoral. And not entirely due to the pedophilic nature of the relationship but because many moralists, politicians, and even doctors saw such activities as damaging to the society and the persons involved. The evidence of homosexual relationships between consenting adults is scant but not non-existent; for example, people will mention how Plato in the Symposium and some other ancient authors saw the relationship of Achilles and Patroclus in the Illiad as being gay, however their mentions are within this erastes-eromenos framework. To give further social context, the very notion of PDA was thoroughly derided in Athens, to the point where the statesman Pericles was seen as a controversial figure among the elite for simply kissing Aspasia (a woman who turned from prostitute to Pericles' wife) in public. Also the notion of sexuality at the time was thoroughlydifferent from today; today terms of sexuality are typically determined by who you're attracted to, while terms related to sexuality in Greece relate to penetrator and penetrated, regardless of gender. As we understand it, the one penetrating is the one holding power and societally completely fine, while the one penetrated is seen as submissive and has a slew of negative stereotypes associated with it. So, to wrap up: sources show very minimal evidence of depictions of adult male-on-male relations, most depictions people point to are in relation to the pederastic relationship of erastes-eromenos, and the notions of sexuality in Greece were based moreso on power dynamics than sexual attraction.

          Sadly, no. We focused on the political dynamics of the practice, looking at it almost as a quid pro quo between young and old men. The course mostly covered Classical Athenian society in broad strokes while giving greater focus to the politics and history of the city from Solon to Demosthenes.

    Amerimutts tend to be at the very least spiritual homosexuals, if not outright homosexuals, so yes

    >The greeks were gay
    Not really
    >Americans are gay
    Oh yea without a doubt. Pride parades in every major city and whole movements to include them in everything? Shoving their children in front of them despite the likelihood of them being predators? Yea they worship gays alright.

      and yet what happens when a notorious dickhead goes to jail? people joke about him getting ass raped. just because it's normalized doesn't mean people actually find it normal.

        People joke about the suffering that is finally coming to such people, not about its resemblance to gay romantic endeavours. Gay couples however are indeed normalized because it is a gay nation. Loads of people accept it, loads don't have an opinion in the first place, loads "tolerate" it. When was the last gay bashing waves coming from white communities?
        There is no shame in living in a gay nation, not every country is perfect.

      This, name one american who isn't.
      Chuck Norris posting was sublimely gay. The Greeks wouldn't have said "If Sokrapamenides knocked on my door, I'd leave my wife for him" like Americans do about Henry Cavill and other masculine men.

    Can someone post the infographic of all the famous writers and poets and philosophers being "fooled" by Greek pederasty

    notice how the leftcattle chimps as always when dealing with the matter of "gayness" of Greeks immediately jump entirely on the matter of pederasty and pretend to forget that it has no bearing on how ADULT male on male sex was deemed
    you could entirely agree with the most extreme takes on how widespread this institution of pederasty was and it would still have little bearing on ADULT male on male relationships

      it's the rightcattle advocating for pedophilia. Which makes sense that they would, since pedophilia and religion and rightwing have been the unholy trinity for millenia.

    there's some gay shit on the idylls. but we need to consider that this was on the hellenistic period, and its ONE gay poet writing gay shit.

      The "everyone was gay" claim starts to fall apart once you read more direct sources from antiquity.

      See

      Constitution of the Lacedaemonians.

      [...]
      Yeah, knowledge about other Greek polities is much harder to come by. But some poetry also serves as a witness to similar practices prior to 5th-century Athens (Solon, Theognis, Anacreon, Ibycus, Sappho).
      Also worth noting that the earliest Greek poetry we have from a confirmed actual individual author includes (heterosexual) erotic poetry of a very straightforward nature. Lends credence to the whole idea that the average person's received assumptions about ancient people might in fact be both stupid and moronic.

      [...]
      It was also celebrated in poetry though, and I don't think it could be reasonably compared with "counterculture" or "subversive" modern stuff, at worst it's decadent but this was not really in a decadent period, just in a rather permissive courtly milieu.

      . The literal, actual hubris to claim "it was ONE" when you aren't even aware of the canonical Greek poets (nevermind having read them, lol).

      should've read specifically the constitution of the Spartans then, where he goes specifically into details about the matter, see [...]
      but please, go ahead mutant

      He says that the laws are so often tolerant of it that he literally doesn't expect the reader to believe the Spartans outlawed it. By even acknowledging the existence of that post you are conceding the war to win that particular battle.

        ?
        I don't think you understood what I meant. I brought the idylls to say that there IS gay shit on Greek poetry, but I made it clear that this was one example.

          Ah ok it just reads like that's what you meant since it's obviously self-evident that there was one example in your post but yeah I get what you meant, apologies.

    You will also find that accounts of homosexuality in Rome are similar. For example, there is no proof that Hadrian was gay, and there is no evidence that Antinoös was anything more than a beloved friend, except it's worse than the already textually refuted account of Achilles/Patroclus because there was no ancient gay pedophile writing homosexual fan fiction about it hundreds of years later to muddy the waters.

    In short, when you actually read, you find that almost everyone including academia is full of shit.
