  1. Umm…not sure where she got that idea!

    Stupid cow.

  2. Stupidest excuse I have heard yet!

  3. Silly cow.

    Really, I cannot think of anything else to be said in answer to one of THE single most moronic arguments that I have ever heard on the subject.

    I mean really – Quick! Divorces for everyone who has sex with the lights off because they’re not able to look each other in the eye!

    As usual, we see a dimwit bigot who cannot help herself but picture sex acts (with very hilariously limited imagination, might I add) when she thinks of LGBT people. I don’t know about you folks, but on the (happily uncommon) times I consider heterosexual people, I don’t automatically picture them acting out 9 1/2 Weeks – it would be nice if they would do us the same bloody courtesy…

  4. I’m not sure she has much of an imagination!

  5. James Knights 19 Aug 2013, 12:41pm

    She really should do some more research before she makes such stupid comments!

    1. She should come observe my partner and me!

    2. Since when has she observed gays having sex? Tsk! Tsk!

  6. As if some people are competing with each other, who will invent bigger stupidity !

  7. Hahahahahahahahahah

    I’m sorry let me just PAAAAHAHAHAHAH

    Hah.

    Oh.

    So funny. I never BREAK eye contact during sex. In fact it’s probably a bit TOO much now that I think about it !

    1. Although she clearly carved out this skewed view from the nieve assumption that gay couples can only have sex “doggy style” – which everyone here obviously knows is SO not true. She’s also forgetting about women ???

      Personally, I like ‘em on their back ;)

  8. Homophobes sure seem to spend a lot of time thinking about gay sex!

    1. HAHA! brilliant! So true though…. plus surely this woman needs more education sex, more sex education needed clearly! ;)

      1. Maybe she’s just trying to give the impression that she’s a nice Catholic girl who can’t imagine anything other than being in the missionary position? If she’s married I wouldn’t be surprised if her partner finds her boring as hell.

    2. MarKo Hubert 22 Aug 2013, 1:23am

      A priest friend of mine suggested to a colleague to try homosexual sex because he always speak about it with a kind of Jealousy. Maybe homophobes should indeed try it they may love it.

  9. I hear that she has been invited to the UK to advise UKIP on equality!

  10. Paul Essex/London 19 Aug 2013, 12:51pm

    Words fail me. Which survey did she get confirmation from that every straight married couple has done it in the missionary position?

  11. This is bizarre. I guess we all know she doesn’t have a particularly exciting sex life ;) Same-sex sex can definitely involve looking someone in the eyes, and hate to break it to you lady but there are a whole lot of ways opposite-sex couples have sex which do not involve eye contact at all. Moreso I feel really bad for her that she reduces love and marriage to sex! Her romantic history must be very emotionally absent for her to have formed this assumption

  12. By the look of it, neither does her husband.

  13. Just shows how much she knows, that is one of the stupidest comments I’ve read in a while.

    Dimmwitted.
    And she’s upset because people called her on it, because “she was “respectful and put her views with conviction”.
    Denying others the same rights you have is never respectful! And making up stupid excuses for your opinions just adds insult.
    Crazy bitch.

  14. I love this, the more these complete idiots come up with ever insane excuses for their nutty opinions the more stupid they and their views appear to be in the eyes of the public.

    Someone give this b*tch a microphone and put her on TV, it could be a comedy show, while also helping to destroy their movement and expose these crazies for what they are!

    The vast majority would watch a woman like this and laugh their butt off, and that can only do more damage to these bigots in the long run.

  15. Her sexual life is definitelly very boring, knowing ony missionary position.

  16. tony manchester 19 Aug 2013, 1:06pm

    somebody please send this potty mare some gay porn so she can educate herself

    1. Mumbo Jumbo 19 Aug 2013, 1:10pm

      Sounds like she could use some straight porn as well…..

  17. Cardinal Fang 19 Aug 2013, 1:06pm

    The PN summary of the Regeneris report omits that it dealt with relationships where the gay parent was in a heterosexual marriage. It didn’t look at children raised by gay couples at all.

  18. Cardinal Fang 19 Aug 2013, 1:15pm

    Her comment is not only untrue and made in complete ignorance of gay lovemaking, male and female, but is insidious in that it is clearly intended to suggest that there is no emotional component for gay people because she believes there is no “eye contact” in other words, emotional connection.

    This could just be a method of dehumanising gay people in the eyes of the Mexican public.

    But if it is simple ignorance, she needs to get out and meet more gay people so that she can learn how mistaken she is.

  19. I guess she would think that because the only satisfactory sex her husband gets is through a hole in some public bathroom wall. Truly, I have known some Mexican women, and they aren’t all so incredibly stupid…just the politicians.

  20. hahahahahahahahahahahahah backward B I T C H

  21. Robert in S. Kensington 19 Aug 2013, 1:47pm

    She ought to rent some porn and watch the various non-eye contact hetero’s engage in, including the ‘doggy’ position which seems to be very popular among straights apparently.

    I wonder if her husband has ever gone down on her without looking at her face? Perhaps that’s what’s missing from her sex life and she may not have made such an asinine statement.

  22. That There Other David 19 Aug 2013, 1:52pm

    Hilarious. Sounds like she needs to take up yoga or pilates. It might give her an idea about how flexible the human body is ;-)

  23. Jock S. Trap 19 Aug 2013, 2:08pm

    Erm…. Crazy says what now?

    Again, what’s with the assumptions?

    Seems a dumb thing to say for someone considered in a powerful position.

  24. C Shes just mad cause no one is eating her pan lmao if you’re mexican you understand

    1. I actually spent a few moments thinking “pan” was some kind of mexican dish before I realised what you really meant!! herp derp!! lol

  25. I honestly am not trying to be rude but –
    1) clearly she has no clue
    2) I guess she has never been taken from behind

    1. Or had/given head

      1. Or licky ;)

  26. Loca vaca!

  27. john lyttle 19 Aug 2013, 2:52pm

    I certainly wouldn’t want to look her full in face during sex.

  28. Donald Hamilton 19 Aug 2013, 2:56pm

    The missionary position for sex is but one position, see the Karmasutra for many more and you to could show your true love more than just caring! Love is a many splendid thing and you have to get off the Catholic band wagon!!!

  29. SHAME ON PINK NEWS FOR ADVERTISING PADDY POWER!

    Have you forgotten their transphobic adverts already? Pink News values money more than their readers clearly! For shame! I’m absolutely disgusted!

    http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2012/05/16/regulator-paddy-power-ad-which-asked-viewers-to-spot-the-trans-lady-was-offensive/

  30. the only thing i get out of all this is that there are homophobic idiots all over the world!

  31. All I had to do was read where she’d cited the Regnerus Study, and that was enough for me to relegate her to the group of straw graspers.

    Does this so called congresswoman really think the Mexican population is made up of peons with only a second grade education, easily led, and duped?

    Now her remark about us not being able to make eye to eye contact during sex was enough to almost make me spit my coffee all over my keyboard, I was laughing so hard.

    Rather than getting angry with people, like her, the stance that should be taken is one of “stand and deliver”. If they’re going to make statements of that sort, they should be categorically challenged on each word and made to show verifiable proofs. I mean, after all, if she’s going to be vying for the position of village idiot, she should be able to convince us of her qualifications.

  32. she mostlikely just lies down face her husband and telling him to get over with it is anyhow just for reproducing. I hope she doesn´t pass on her intellect

  33. the stupidity of our elected politicians the world over never ceases to amaze me

    (especially the ones outside of ministerial posts or equivalent)

    1. You should be used to it by now.

  34. Christopher Coleman 19 Aug 2013, 4:04pm

    Hard to imagine any couple, even in missionary position, looking into each others’ eyes, especially when climaxing. And what about people who have sex at night? Her attitude also implies she is against a blind person getting married, even if that person’s sex life were to be as blameless as a pope would wish.

    I rather fancy this woman only knows sex in the afternoon — and we know what that means…

  35. Clutching at straws, Ms Ortiz?

  36. What does this tell us about HER sex life? If her ignorance and homophobia were not so serious, we could all have a good laugh. Sadly, her attitude is not in the least bit marginal.

  37. Homophobic AND embarrassingly ignorant! It’d be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

    These people clearly have no self-awareness at all.

  38. Sean in Alaska 19 Aug 2013, 5:05pm

    She knows better. What she intends to do here is get ignorant people thinking like that so in 5-10 years, homophobia will be commonplace again in Mexico.

  39. Will she propose outlawing queuing as people don’t face each other while waiting in line?

  40. Andrew Freeth 19 Aug 2013, 5:32pm

    Dear Ana Maria,

    I would like some clarification from you please.

    Recently you made comments regarding same sex relationships/marriage, that they were basically invalid and should be illegal due to a lack of face to face eye contact.

    I do not wish to discuss this here.

    I have a more pressing issue.

    What I would like is advice on HOW I should look at my opposite partner during sex, of course, presuming that she is not covered with the ‘sheet with the hole’, beautifully embroidered by my Mother in Law as a wedding gift.

    1) Can I look with both eyes?
    2) Should I look at one eye with both eyes?
    3 a) Should I close one eye and then look at the opposite eye?
    3 b) Can I alternate?
    4) Can I wink?
    5) If I have a sty, should copulation commence? OR should I get a eye patch?
    6) Can I have the answers for her too please?
    7) My friend has a tic, which basically means his left eye twitches every 20 seconds or so. Should he cover it during intercourse? OR be open and proud? Or borrow the sheet?

  41. Staircase2 19 Aug 2013, 6:14pm

    Bloody idiot…
    That says more about how one dimensional her own sex life is than it does about how ‘important’ it is that everyone should always be having missionary style sex…

  42. Well if that’s her criterion, we all qualify.
    By the way, b!tch, ever tried doggy!

  43. Poppy Rose 19 Aug 2013, 6:20pm

    Make love in front of a mirror then, supid woman.

  44. She lacks imagination and is terribly misinformed, BUT I appreciate that she would consider me a contortionist!

  45. Yet another comment showing a complete lack of education. Apparently, gay people only engage in ‘doggy style’

    I bet her husband doesn’t look her in the eye when making love, and I wouldn’t blame him

  46. Gentleman Jim 19 Aug 2013, 9:16pm

    I am a heterosexual man, I only ever engage in anal sex with partners as it makes it easier to balance a laptop on there back so I can watch porn at the same time. Will I ever be allowed to marry one of my lovers?

  47. Deanna Joy Hallmark 19 Aug 2013, 9:45pm

    What does she know? Has she been a Peeping Thomasina or what?

  48. Don’t think she understands all the positions involved, I mean woman don’t have to look at a guy depending on the position aswell

  49. Quite honestly one of the most stupid comments I’ve seen from the homophobes thus far, and that’s saying a lot :P

  50. Tatiana Jones 20 Aug 2013, 2:23am

    Dear PinkNews people:
    This lady is from the National Action Party.
    They are from the conservative right and are tightly related with the church, so much that one of our presidents from that party recieved a blessing from the Vatican.
    Please do not be surprised that this happened. In fact, the PAN is responsible for blocking other “liberal” reforms and banned Yucatan’s same-sex marriage until recently somebody undid it.

    Just adding more info here.
    TL;DR : she and her group are retarded.

    -A concerned Mexican

  51. I can’t stand having a threesome with a hetero…….YUK Stupid Bitch

  52. Aiden Raccoon 20 Aug 2013, 2:37pm

    That’s not even true. I’m gay and I am fully able to do missionary position. I’m sure lesbian can also easily look into each other’s eyes while scissoring. I wouldn’t know about that part though.

  53. what about blind people lady?

  54. Yes because heterosexual people ALWAYS face each other during sex.

  55. MarKo Hubert 22 Aug 2013, 1:19am

    Even being hetero, I’m not sure I would like to face her having sex with.

    Indeed this is one of the stupidest excuse ever been said.
