I made this comment in the last thread but never got an answer so I'll post it here: Is it misleading to say that Antinous is a symbol of pederasty and not mention that in the modern era he is a well known gay icon

Also I've never seen any evidence that that one painting of the decapitated kid was actually ever in Comet

I don't think it's misleading. The fact is that he IS a symbol of pederasty. We don't need to provide a defense against our own case, and mentioning that he's also associated with homosexuality would be (1) redundant and (2) make us sound like homophobes.

Also I've never seen any evidence that that one painting of the decapitated kid was actually ever in Comet

I would be grateful if you would look into its exact association with Comet. Try reverse image search. I'm really busy atm.

I have actually reverse image searched it. The artists website doesn't say anything about it and comet and the other sources I have seen are pizzagate related and most of them simply say it's another painting by the same artist who did a mural in comet.

Not that painting the other one with the naked women. It was a small point
