The Achilles Debate

The "Was Achilles Gay?" web page has spawned such an amount of controversy and such a large number of responses that I thought I'd post a few here to give you all an idea of some of the comments I've been receiving. So far the quirkiest idea is that the greeks were not in fact homo or bi-sexual, but insane, because they were drinking too much lead. This is a very interesting theory, however, and I respect any well-argued theory with textual support (which is how this got started in the first place)! So, feast your eyes, examine some counter-arguments, and come to your own decision.
