arsenokoites and malakos

In response to Tony Bowden's request, he might want to check the excursus on 
the meaning of aresenokoites and malakos in my doctoral dissertation, "Sexual 
Relations and the Church: An Exegetical Study of 1 Corinthians 5-7" 
(unpublished, Union Theological Seminary, NYC, 1987).  These two words are 
extreemly difficult to translate into English.  They seem not to bear a 
singular reference to homosexuals and their presence in a list of offenders 
makes the context almost useless in determining a fixed meaning for the words.
