    While a society can outlaw the behavior of two men or two women having sex together (whether they are "gay" or not) or other observable actions or maybe announcing that they are gay--it is much more difficult to outlaw feelings because the feelings could go unstated.

    It's also important to recognize that being "gay" is a much more recent cultural construction. Check this diary called "Was Alexander the Great Gay" for more on this.  

    It's easy to misunderstand and jump to quick conclusions when we only communicate in anonymous forums. :-)
