I find it hilarious that the researchers/authors of this type of "scholarship" always take the diaries, letters and other accounts written by the conquistadors, missionary priests, refuge-seekers and other European travelers to Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific Islands at face value. They take it for granted that everything men from Europe wrote down on parchment or paper always reflected their true feelings and corresponded directly with what they did in real life. When, in fact, everything they wrote was written with the idea that it would be read by others - perhaps even published for wide consumption - and as a result, the views they recorded reflected the orthodox religious doctrines and accepted views prevailing in their home countries at the time.

It's like these "scholars" never heard of hypocrisy. Of course, the white guys from Spain, Portugal, Holland, France and England who explored and took over the "New World" and other parts of the globe would use their writings to condemn the sodomy and sex abuse of children they witnessed amongst "the natives." Coz that was the party line of the countries and Christian religions in whose name they did their exploring and colonizing. But in actuality, lots and lots of these men committed the sins of sodomy, child rape and many other "depravities" all the same. Just as large numbers of Roman Catholic clergy did both back then and forever since.

A more realistic representation of how Whitey from Europe really felt about sodomy and child rape can be found in the letters from Egypt that Gustave Flaubert wrote in the 19th century. Educated, elite men from Europe used to go to "exotic" foreign lands precisely for the purpose of "buggering" little boys and sexually using and abusing girls & women. "Sex tourism" wasn't invented in the 20th century. It's been part of the reason men have been on the move around the globe since time began.

This 💯. And modern anthropology is all based on this one sided perverse world view - of most of the worlds population as savages -with all its baked in biases and Eurocentric “interpretations “.

Yet diaries from the actual people they write about aren’t considered valid historical documents unless validated by the “respectable “ historians and anthropologists.

Men have been perverts since the beginning of time. And the white men who have controlled these narratives...the absolute worst

And now the woque perverts want to mix the Noble Savage idea with the perversions of societies outside Europe to push their own deviancy.

Reading between the lines, this article sounds like a hertero normative society that, for whatever reason, “transed away the gays”? Am I missing something?

I think your interpretation is spot on. Also, seems that these societies didn't just "trans away the gays," but they - and the author of this article - had/have males as their exclusive concern and focus.

All the same-sex marriages "between women" cited were actually between men. Gay males were forced to pretend to be women, so when two of them got together to have sex or to form a partnership or marriage, they pretended to be lesbians. Which rendered genuine lesbians invisible and meant women who loved women had no place at all within these supposedly "inclusive" and "more tolerant" societies.

The male-supremacist cultures discussed in this article treated lesbianism and the category of "woman" itself as territories to be claimed, captured, colonized and stolen by men. They did to female people within their own populations what the conquistadors did to them as indigenous peoples. Coz, contrary to what the wokesters today claim, humans in Africa, Asia and the Americas had figured out that there are two sexes and that men could use their superior strength and women's physical vulnerabilities to dominate and abuse women as a group long before Whitey from Europe arrived with his "binary notions" of sex.

Thanks for your analysis. That was a great read!

Can I get a source on this? I'd like to read some more.

Unfortunately this is pretty par for the course with lesbian relationships historically :(

Gay men could be gay men in some cultures, or they could be compelled into a sort of pseudo-womanhood in order to avoid breaking the taboo of MSM in others.

Lesbians though...virtually a non-entity in the historical record, comparatively speaking. On the one hand, what women did when they were alone together could remain their one business, and a lot of lesbianism may have been written off as playfulness or platonic love, since sex or sexual desire without penetration couldn’t be conceived. On the other admitting that women had sexual desires at all, least of all for each other, was taboo in way too many cultures for way too long.

Stuff like this is just some woque academic using hearsay to back up a hip MODERN point of view. It’s like when the chinesr communist party claims that Confucianism was always communist, because of Legalism, which can be seen as supporting authoritarianism generally and communism specifically. If Han Fei were alive today, would he even know what the hell Communism is, or even think about supporting it?
