Mexican Congresswoman Rejects Marriage Equality Because Gays Don't Face Each Other During Sex

Ana María Jiménez Ortiz
Ana María Jiménez Ortiz, a member of Mexico's PAN party, says that gays should not be allowed to marry because,

"A marriage should only be considered amongst people that can look at each other in the eye while having sexual intercourse. Something that does not happen in homosexual couples."

Ortiz continued with her flawed assumptions by citing the condemned Regnerus study as justification and then resorted to the classic fallbacks of claiming she made her arguments in a respectful manner and the overused “I’m sorry that my participation was taken out of context."

The criticism Ortiz received online was enough to force her to make her Twitter account private.

  5. @Mark: Or some of the more imaginative straight porn - or - I've got a great MMF video that might do the trick.

  6. It's good that all of the loonies are finally being dragged out into the light. It's disheartening, but good.

  9. All this proves is that either:
    1) they are not spying on the bedroom shenanigans of gay people, or
    2) they are, but she hasn't reviewed the data yet, or
    3) This woman doesnt know how to switch off safe search.

  10. By her reasoning, very tall men should not marry very short women, and no blind person should ever marry.

  11. I've often thought

  12. Good to know she can fully stand behind SSM (oops, pun), once that little misunderstanding has been cleared up ;)

  13. I remember a time when politicians were considered "Statesmen".

    Those were the days. Never see them again....

  14. Her opinions should be kept just as private as her Twitter account is now. What a moron.

  15. I have had several sessions of face to face sex. It was a pleasure to wipe the sweat off of my partners face as he labored. She is a bigot idiot. I hope she is not re-elected.

  16. You just can't argue with stupid.

  17. I might not have shown her my sling, but now I guess we should have a little run-through.

    Posted by: Rob | Aug 20, 2013 7:44:44 AM

  18. She has never seen a gay porn has she? We can, so that means according to her silly primitive reasoning that we should be allowed to get married.

  19. Was this moron elected to her post?

  20. Yet another homophobic woman! They're like ants!

    Posted by: Brian | Aug 20, 2013 7:58:25 AM

  21. Haha, she really lacks imagination. We should start sending her gay porn (and maybe some lesbian if you find any) to educate her. Or maybe that's a crime, I don't know what the laws in Mexico are regarding that. All I know is that the bigots keep on killing their cause with stupidity.

  22. Sra. Ana María Jiménez Ortiz está muy loca!

  23. @Brian/rick/jason/alan

    Please don't repeat your stupid theory, I get that. But what I don't get is how you're finding support for it. First you must disregard every single survey on the subject that shows women much more accepting of gay rights than men. Instead I guess you decide you're just going to count individual anti gay women around the world based on towleroad stories. Every single time one pops up, you do too with your silliness. But how do you account for the many more men saying and doing anti gay things in articles on this site? Or pro gay women? Why is this always greeted with silence from you?

  24. And all this time I've been doing it wrong.

    Pretty sure her husband knows better.

  25. Oh the intelligence of the completely uneducated.
