Now my question is: with this knowledge, why do we insist on naming relationships.
- Why was Alexander so distraught at Hephaestion’s death?
Expert:They were lovers.
Ohhh!(The noise of understanding)
- Why do these two spend so much time together?
Expert:They both are from same caste/ college /whatever
Oohhhhhh!(The noise of understanding magnified because the person now thinks that he/she looks like a fool not having realised the connection earlier)
