And y'all fuck boys like Socrates

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Problem) – IV. sweatpants Lyrics on Rap Genius


It wasn’t uncommon for men of ancient Greece to have sexual relationships with boys. The question of whether the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates is real or not is a common question. As he was displayed through the non-historical based works of others.

It’s ironic, the stories of Socrates assert that he’s straight as a needle. Plato’s Symposium elaborates more on Socrates’s abstinence Homo/pedophile-like relationships; most famously illustrated in Plato’s Symposium(Symposium 216c-233d).

This also plays off the southern slang term “fuck boy,” meaning punk or weakling.
