     Star, et al, Graves was not the first to report that Diana was not chaste. Frazier, in "The Golden Bough" posits the same thoughts in Chapter XII.

     Graves , in "The Greek Myths"then reveals that the Triple Goddess contained Diana, usually considered as the maiden. I think that an older tradition  (Gimbutas) saw the female principal as inclusive of maiden, mother , and crone , simultaneously.

     The woman/goddess is understood to IN GENERAL see the Triple aspect as the ideal.

      Of course a person can be chaste and still be human. Smooth the hackles I raised on your back, please Smiley

The only problem with all this is that the MMC is a modern paradigm.  Frazier and Graves may have crammed the Greek goddesses into it, but there is no support for it anywhere in the original myths.

Aside from that, Frazier, Graves, Murray, and Gimbutas are discredited precisely because of the liberties they take, as well as for inadequate scholarship in these areas.  They are not authoritative sources.

If people's hackles are raised by your assumptions they are perfectly at liberty to express that within our rules.  You can defend your assertions with sources, which may or may not be acceptable to the people you are responding to, and may or may not be argued with.  That's how it works here.

Blessed are the cracked, for it is they who let in the light.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
