It is also a scientific fact that young men, especially in their adolescence and youth have a strong sexual need for men (Psycholgists call it the homosexual 'phase'!) So it makes all the sense for men to have relations with other men in their youth and then get married to girls in their late youth or early middle age. That way they will get the chance to be men. a.) Why don't you learn to argue properly? It's really annoying when you get examples out of context. None of the examples you've given above prove anything but present us with your biases. b.) I don't see the point about who is exploiting whom if both the younger and the older youth are happy about it. You are clearly mistaken. It's not just about languages. It is about distortion of truth through dubious concepts. Lemme ask you, does your culture have a word for 'homosexual'? When the entire world is speaking or using English, it cannot just reflect west's concepts and worldview? And even English did not have the word before the end of nineteenth century. So its also about a whole lot of conspiracy!
