I think rather that the aorist infinitive APOKOYASQAI must construe with OU
DUNANTAI: "And those who emasculate themselves are not able (thereby) to
eliminate successfully (lit. "cut off") the predilections of males ..."
It's interesting how forceful the little particle GE is here--but I can't
think of any way to convey it, unless with an "even so."
