The Other Half That Makes Us Whole

I was looking up a reference to Plato's story about Zeus cutting people into halves as punishment so that we search relentlessly for our missing half. Instead I found an interesting advocacy for homosexuality. Wasn't expecting that.

But those who are halves of a male who pursue males, and being slices, so to speak, of the male, love men throughout their boyhood, and take pleasure in physical contact with men. Such boys and lads are the best of their generation, because they are the most manly.
from Symposium: Plato
