But is this a Muslim thing? Historically, the attitude towards homosexuality in the 'Dark Ages' was pretty much similar to what has been in the much
of modern history in the West: seen as outside wider society, frowned-up and open to punishment. Yet, counter-intuitively, viking homosexual rape was
said to have been widespread. Like most rape (homosexual or not), it's a power issue rather than a sexual one.
There's a lot of linguistic evidence to show that attitudes towards homosexuality in Norse communities seem to be based on the concept of on whether
you were the 'giver' or the 'taker'. To be the 'taker' was seen as week and effeminate whilst the 'giver' (or more accurately the forcer)
didn't have his sexuality or manliness questioned at all.
