Couples Who Don't Face Each Other During Sex Shouldn't Get Married, Says Wacky Anti-Gay Congresswoman

by Kiri Blakeley

We've heard some odd reasons why gay people shouldn't be allowed to get legally married. Like that they "undermine" the institution of marriage. Like heterosexual people who get married for a split second don't? Or that they can't procreate. Like all heterosexual couples can? But this one is a doozy. Hold your hat. A congresswoman from Mexico reportedly said that gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry because they don't face each other during sex. Yes, Ana María Jiménez Ortiz, who represents the state of Puebla, which is considering legalizing gay marriage, reportedly said:

Marriage should only be considered in those relationships in which the members have sex while facing each other.

Ummm. WHAT?!

She also reportedly went on (and I'm not making this up):

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.

After a backlash on Twitter, Ortiz backpeddled on her "face only" sex statement, but the damage was done. Let's face it (har!), there are lots of ways to have sex besides that which brings you eyeball to eyeball!

Hello, Ms. Ortiz. Oral sex? Minimal eye contact, I assure you. Doggie style, perhaps? You should try it. Okay, then there's 69. I won't explain. You figure it out.

Oh my goodness, has Ms. Ortiz not read the Kama Sutra? That's a hypothetical. I won't even get into Fifty Shades of Grey. Please let us not even consider blindfolds. Or blind people?!

There are so many ways to have sex and to have intimacy. The day that missionary sex becomes the sole way couples can have sex or they can't be legally married ... well, a lot of us would suddenly be divorced.

Who is to say what is "natural"? Plenty of animals don't look each other in the face when they have sex. Luckily, they don't need people like Ms. Ortiz.

This is the screwiest (har!) reason to be anti-gay marriage I've ever heard of. It's not just homophobic. It's, like, funaphobic.

Ms. Ortiz must be a riot in the bedroom.

Do you think that sex should always be face to face?

Well, as a woman struggling with infertility, married to a man with a severe erectile dysfunction and can only ejaculate in the doggy style positions... I guess she would say we should throw out our 10 year marriage. Crazy the things people believe!

But - about this story... What I liked best was:

"A congresswoman from Mexico reportedly said ......"

Really? When did Mexico become a State where they have representation in our Congress?

That is really silly.

I wonder whether she went to school? Home school or otherwise? Seems her education was very lacking.

She IS a congresswoman. (sadly)

Mexico has a Congress to, you know.

I know Mexico has a Congress, I actually thought this said a US Congresswoman.
