Hermaphrodite…in Paraguay it means freedom…

On the day hundreds of same sex couples got married in California, the authorities in Paraguay were busy releasing a same sex couple from jail who also decided to get married. Well…kind of a same sex couple.

Prosecutor Jose Planas ordered the couple jailed after their civil wedding Friday, when the priest scheduled to perform the religious ceremony the following day said he received a call saying the groom, Jesus Alejandro Martinez, was actually a woman.

Same-sex marriages are illegal in Paraguay, and news of the arrest became the talk of the nation.

 A bit further down the article:

But the couple was released Monday. A doctor who inspected Martinez in jail ruled that he is a hermaphrodite, with atrophied female genitals and well-developed male genitals, according to the couple’s lawyer, Jorge Cantero.

“Conclusion: He is a man,” Cantero said.

Reaction from Mr. Martinez:

“I always felt like a man, with no feminine inclination,” he said.

That a boy, Jesus.
