A matter of competing definitions, as far as I can understand, Sir Victor. We define homosexuality as preferential male-male sexual activity. They define sexual activity as exclusively between a husband and wife, therefore the male-male activity is something else, which therefore cannot possibly be homosexual, no matter the man's preference. Listen to our host, who claimed 2-3,000 encounters with dancing boys, but never any sex... after which he nearly came to blows with his guests over who would return the dancing boy to his owner.

#4 Ummm... were you being sarcastic, Sir Victor? As I demonstrated yesterday, I'm not necessarily good at recognizing that when it isn't clearly signposted with /sarc or a winking thingy or something.

I understood that the guy doing the catching was homosexual, and the guy doing the pitching was just doing what guys do, like the cat/meat thingy.

#7 A guess on my part: I also wouldn't be surprised if the boy were considered to be not homosexual as long as he is under a certain age and therefore not a man yet and therefore not prohibited from homosexual acts.

I'll bet they call it a technicality there, too.
