There is an entry in the gender section which states that Adonis
served Apollo as a female. However, I can't find any proof for this
anywhere in ancient mythology. Can anyone either prove or disprove

I suspect you're thinking of the tale of Heracles (aka Hercules)
and Omphale (the Queen of Lydia).|
The story goes something like this:
Driven mad by Hera, Heracles murders his best friend Iphitus. His
punishment is to become a slave to Queen Omphale who, for reasons
never quite explained, decides that he will serve her has a woman.
Heracles is forced to wear womens clothing and perform womens
chores alongside the queens other hand maidens until he is finally
released from slavery. In the end, he marries the queen who goes on
to bear him a son.
I dont recall having ever seen a reference to Adonis ever serving
Apollo in this manner, but I can't rule it out either. Those
ancient greeks did a lot of funny things like that :)

There was also the story of Achilles pretending to be a maiden at
his mother's request so he wouldn't go off to war.|

Dyonisos was raised as a girl, until his foster parents were slain.
Later he lived as part of a group of female ... priests/shamans
whatever, the later mainads.|

When the Greeks said that a man served another as a woman, it meant
an homosexual relationship, not a transformation|

Although in the case of Heracles and Omphale I dont really think
you can call it a homosexual relationship, but I tend to agree with
you Sola that the ancient greeks didn't seem to have much
difficulty with homosexual behavior or even bestiality.|
Indeed, there is one tale of of Pasiphae and the Bull. Pasiphae,
who was the the Queen of Minos, was cursed by the god Poseidon
(they do a lot of cursing don't they) to fall in love with a sacred
white bull. To satisfy her love she had Daedalus construct a
life-like cow that Pasiphae could get into so she could woo (or is
it moo?) the bull into a coupling.
And what do you get from such a romantic encounter? You get the
famed Minotaur of Minos of course!
Who says studying ancient civilizations isn't fun? :)

Indeed, studying mythology is fun.|
However, should we keep this entry in this database?
Sola said "When the Greeks said that a man served another as a woman, it
meant an homosexual relationship, not a transformation".
If that's what this entry meant, is it valid as a transformation?
Can anyone find proof of a transformation?
I'm thinking this entry should be marked for deletion.
Either way, talking about ancient civilizations is quite fun.

No, there are no transformations here, I think we can call this one
Though it's worth noting that Pasiphae is sister to Circe who is
well known for her skills in metamorphosis, illusion and dark
necromancy - most famously in turning Odysseus's men into swine. So
in a round about way this sorta kinda has something to do with
Perhaps if we just rename this thread to "Vague Greek Mythological
References" it can stay :)

Is there an actual way to rename threads in the message board or
would that be an administrator thing?|

I don't think that bestiality was really practiced in ancient
Greece. While Greek mythology had a lot of references, it seems
that this is only in fiction. I suspect that a lot of this has to
do with different religious traditions being combined in a somewhat
haphazard fashion causing myths from diverse cultures to be
