The Spartans had sex with the young boy soldiers. This practice is still common in some armys.

"The Spartans believed that the love of an older, accomplished aristocrat for an adolescent boy was essential to his formation as a free citizen"

They actuallty believe that is one of the things that made them so great in battle.
The homosexuality in the unit increased cohession and bravery.

Why is this such a shock to people? It's common knowledge!

And the practice isnt really common at all anymore things have moved on since the Greek / Roman philosphy, soldiers just use prostitutes now.

Well maybe they are still up to it, wouldnt put it past them like, but in Asian, African, American and European armies its gone, Im not sure about other countires, but Im sure you can still be discharged from the army for engaging in homosexual activities here in England.

I think when you used the terms boys and used it kind of casts the Kurdish armies in more of an "midevil" or oldfashioned light... Any modern army from a country that has moved it's culture past the dark ages don't "use boy's" in their ranks for anything, let only getting all nasty and gay with

Read about The Sacred Band of Thebes. It was a unit made up from 150 homosexual couples, and were supposed to be one of the most deadly units in ancient Greece, at their height fighting a Spartan force three times larger and winning. The idea behind the Sacred Band was that if you loved the man next to you, you'd fight all the harder to keep him alive, and vica versa.

As for Spartans, this was a common practice, but it was also required by law that you be married (to a woman) before you were in your 30's or you were exiled.
