Homosexual acts in the military is a big issue. I've heard stories of people getting beaten badly because people thought he was gay (due to catching the last part of a joke he was telling). But it's interesting to know that homosexual acts in the military was a pretty accepted thing in Rome and Greece back in the day. Not only that, in some cultures things are even more surprising. For example, there are cultures which believe that they can give some of their masculinity to their young by providing them with semen. These people are like most of the world, completely heterosexual, but their culture approves of these homosexual acts and it's not looked down upon. But obviously these customs are dying out as the Western homophobia is spreading.
