  •  Platonic love non erotic is a caricature. (0+ / 0-)
      That is a common oversimplification of what Plato wrote.

      This quotation lifted from your diary gives a another view for the common and really absurdly oversimplified catch phrase "Platonic love".

    Wherever, therefore, it has been established that it is shameful to be involved in sexual relationships with men," he wrote, "this is due to evil on the part of the rulers, and to cowardice in the part of the governed."

    It is just as true today as it was 2500 years ago.

    Love is more diverse, interesting and unlimited than simple divisions into agape, eros and the limits of one person physically loving another.

    Much,much much more than just that single reality.

      Be it the adaptation to the true reality of life in America, or properly representing, not denying that reality the armed services adapt and prosper. Women in large numbers serve, and serve with distinction. The meritocracy keeps a healthy wrap on it, a student from SUNY Binghampton  76
    became the first woman 4 star general recently.

      The military reflects in its millions the dynamic social mores and sexuality of the whole adult population.  What ever else does any intelligent citizen expect it to do?
