GANYMEDE KIDNAP - suggests KID and RAPE (see comments)
"Ganymed" (see related A | B | C), 1580 Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) Kunshistorisches Museum, Vienna, Austria
Depicted is a well-known story of Greek mythology. Homer asserts that Ganymede was the most beautiful of mortals. He was kidnapped by the gods to serve Zeus as a cup-bearer.
Word ideas illuminate - in Ukrainian "raptovo" implies suddenly, unexpectedly - in Spanish, "rapto" means rape. Kid-nap underscores the reality in Greek culture - homosexual relationships of adult males with male "kids". A focus on "abduction" in the context of kidnap points to "take away". In this sense, our abdomen abducts food, and so on.
More remote but provocative is the pair of terms catamitus and Ganymedes - catamite in modern terms is a label of homosexuality.
