    lol at volt. A Spartan man would be legally punished for not engaging in pedantry. Let me guess, you watched 300 and now think that Spartans are most awesome people in history. Plenty of things were fucked up in their society and they ruined themselves because of it.

    Although off topic it is worth noting that Spartan homophilia tended to be within the same age group rather then across age groups.

    Nuh uh. A spartan man was supposed to mentor a boy and teach him how to be a man and show him the ways of the world, and the moons of jupiter.

    Wikipedia article:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spartan_pederasty

    Highlights:

    Yeah, it was pretty sexual. Lycurgus had to decree otherwise in attempt to make it less so, but it pretty much continued anyway. Outside observers often overstated how sexual Spartan pederasty was, and later writers like Plutarch and Cicero (who had access to Greek sources we no longer do) wrote that it was socially expected to be chaste, although Cicero appended that it was a pretty thin line, and that the only thing that was actually disallowed was buttsex.

    The Spartans were also the first to compete nude in athletics, and the first to introduce oil. And the yearly Gymnopaedia was a lot of pretty naked boys dancing exclusively for a crowd of married men.

    No it doesnt matter. What does matter is when someone claims that they can kink your brainstem, palm heel you in the chin and kill you, or drive your nose bone into your brain for an instant death type of blow.
    What does matter is when someone claims the can read your thoughts, turn invisible, walk on water, climb walls with their bare hands, and other such nonsense.
    ****, that the Booj is FAMOUS for.
    What are you talking about? I dont know anyone from Bujinkan saying that bullshit. If you know sumeone that says that **** then just expose him intead of generalizing because that is obiously fake.

    Singling out an individual would be a good idea except that... in organizations such as the Bujinkan, such claims are extremely common. Enough so that they include the majority of the system. When ridiculous claims of this kind are so extremely prevalent, that's when they call for bringing up the entire organization rather than an individual.

    Edit: I posted before I realized this was a necro thread. My apologies to everyone. I didn't mean to give this any level of credence whatsoever.
