I suppose we should be comforted by the knowledge that not all homophobic politicians hail from America's Republican Party. In fact, recent news out of Russia seems to indicate that we don't even have the market sewn up for the most backward of homophobes here in America. But until you've read the reasoning given by a PAN representative from Puebla, Mexico, you've not seen real stupid. We might think our conservative troglodytes are backward and ignorant (which we do, and they are), but this lady is the new leader in the clubhouse closet.
I found this story on Addicting Info, quoting Representative Ana Maria Jimenez Ortiz from an interview she gave to On Top magazine:
“Marriage should only be considered as those relationships in which the members have sex while facing each other.”
Jimenez Ortiz goes on to cite bogus science, saying that the scientific method has proven that true copulation cannot take place without eye contact. She adds:
“This does not occur between gay couples.”Perhaps out of all of this demeaning absurdity, the most insulting, and also the most inaccurate, part of it all is when Jimenez Ortiz exclaimed:
“Who pretends to love decently using the favorite position of dogs?”
I'm so surprised this kind of logic wasn't first introduced by Tennessee's own Senator Stacey Campfield, our very own candidate for most repressed (and probably) gay basher out there.
