FunkOut: foxyshadis: Aulus: Seriously, as a Classicist (majored in Classical Languages and minored in history), I got to see some seriously farked up shiat from antiquity. A mild sample Link (NSFW)Then there was stuff to give even Freud nightmares: Link (NSFW)I don't suppose I don't need to go on with the stuff Catullus, Martial, Juvenal and Apuleius was writing...Wait, people drank out of a bowl with a giant cock sticking out of it?...I want to party with these people.Romans were all like "Cocks are awesome! Let's put em everywhere!"I think this is where the early Christians developed a fear of genitalia from the cock-crazed Romans.
doglover: Pan is not a human male. Pan is half goat.
Gyrfalcon: Pribar: Gyrfalcon: J. Frank Parnell: edmo: And I keep hearing things are worse now than ever. Because of gays. And unions. And liberals.Maybe things haven't changed so much. Maybe some folks just wish some things had changed.Pretty much. There are people in the comments there saying the eruption was god punishing them for their hedonism.God hadn't been invented yet in 79 Anno Domini Let's not get ahead of our theology.Snerk/I love the Romans, they accused their politicians of bestiality and incest like we accuse ours of lying, that should give ya a insight to their character/I also find it funny that they considered homosexuality ok as long as you were the pitcher, but being the catcher was just beyond the pale...Oh, and as long as it was with the right kind of person. Emperor Hadrian was excoriated for his habit of playing with little boys...but I guess adult men were acceptable IF you were on top.(and nobody called it 79 AD until much later you silly person. That didn't get started till the Venerable Bede)
karlandtanya: Do they call him Paddy the fence builder? no! but you fark one goat...
Latinwolf: UsikFark: edmo: And I keep hearing things are worse no than ever. Because of gays. And unions. And liberals.Maybe things haven't changed so much. Maybe some folks just wish some things had changed.This country used to be great, before Congress was given the powers of taxation by the Constitution and True Patriots were fighting the British! This period lasted from roughly 1775 to 1789.Amazing how people who weren't alive at that time, mostly Libertarians and Sovereign citizens, see this period as some kind of golden era. I guess the part where only white males had any rights is what really appeals to them.
Latinwolf: Didn't seem to happen with those former freed slaves in the U.S.
