"The Greeks thought that homosexuality was more pure than heterosexuality, because one of the main purposes of heterosexuality is the option of reproduction. The Greeks considered heterosexuals desire for only this to be greedy, where as homosexual love is more about true love for the other person, not just the desire to reproduce. Also, because homosexual love isn’t the dominant culture. It’s different."
Ummmmmmmm, let’s not forget that they also condemned heterosexuality because they believed women were worthless and dirty and it was not prestigious to sleep with them. So basically this is only about gay men (but then again, isn’t everything?).
So that too…
Oh yeah, and the majority of homosexual relations in ancient Greece were between grown men and slave boys (ages 10-15).
So, um, that also…
