1 Co 6:9 -- malakoi & arsenokoitai

I am involved in a discussion about whether homosexuality is sinful or not.
 And I was wondering if anyone could help me with these two words:


Some translations have "malakoi" as "effeminate" and some have it as "male

Likewise, for "arsenokoitai" some translations have "homosexuals" and some
have "sodomites".

The RSV only has the one item "sexual perverts".

Could you tell me what's going on here. Thanks.
