Here's the interpretation I've found and believe is the most accurate of chapter 18 verse 22 - "You shouldn't have sex with a man like you do with a woman , otherwise you lower your status to that of a woman." In simple English this was their way of saying "If a guy has sex with another guy, they lose their human rights and become property." Back in the era this was written in, men literally had all of the power. Women were just property to be passed from father to whoever her future husband was. They had no semblence of "human rights".

"Masculine pride" was a HUGE thing back in those days. In today's day and age (2020 and all), this concept is complete nonsense because of how our societal views have changed in regards to womens' rights and how who you do/don't have sex with has zero impact on your gender's "pride".
