@distel @OldBrushNewPaper Did the ancient Greek really have a concept of consensual sex? It's not like women had a significant say in their marriage, nor would slaves be able to refuse sex with their masters.

From what I remember about greek culture, I suspect that the issue was something else, maybe an excess of something (which they tended to worry about a lot), or worries about the rights of somebody who in the future would become a citizen (contrary to women and slaves).

Still, nothing related to a condemnation of modern homosexuality nor of sex between consenting, adult men.

@valhalla @OldBrushNewPaper I don't know why but the article says the word "Homosexuality" was used only from 1946, in modern times, so to say.
