      >>>1) The heterosexual/homosexual division is an anathema to
      gnosticism. Most ancient gnostics believed that a man could be reborn a
      woman and vice versa, so treated man and woman equally, and hence
      attraction to men or to women was viewed equally - it didn't matter
      whether it was same-sex attraction or different sex-attraction, since
      the person in question might have been reborn that gender from the
      other, etc. It essentially had no meaning to them. As for sexuality at
      all - whether one should be completely asexual as opposed to just
      enjoying lots of sex with whoever - different groups had different
      opinions, but ultimately it didn't really matter.<<<

      Again, please back it up with sources. WE can then explore just what
      those sources may actually mean (you may find agreement and
      disagreement), and what they imply about "Gnosticism".
