Well, anonymous editor, I posted that section, using a reputable source, Stephen O. Murray, who has a Ph.D in sociology and post-graduate work in anthropology; you can see his credentials by clicking on his name at the end of the cited glbtq.com article. Now I'm not an expert in pre-Columbian mythology, myself, so I can't swear he is 100% correct on all that, though he does provide a bibliography at the end of the glbtq.com article, which includes among other entries, "Kimball, Geoffrey. "Aztec Homosexuality: The Textual Evidence." Journal of Homosexuality 26.1 (1993): 7-24," which I presume is one of the sources he gets his information from. A google search shows that Kimball's article is widely cited in other scholarly articles on queer studies, so it seems as if Murray is working with good material.
If you have authoritative sources to verify your claims, why don't you add them to this section so readers can form their own judgment about this issue? I really don't care whether there were two gods/goddesses, or ten, or none; but let's put the scholarly evidence out there for everyone to see, okay? Textorus (talk) 03:52, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Over the past few weeks I've been working on this article trying to improve it. I think all the required information has been added. However, I think it may be a little too long and I need somebody to tell me if the article is okay the way it currently is, or if it should be split into two articles (like LGBT rights in Japan and LGBT in Japan). Thanks! Kraft. (talk) 09:12, 14 December 2009 (UTC)
Comment. This article is really extensive. Kudos to you for that! But I think perhaps the sections on LGBT life in Mexico (Cutural Life, Tourism, Social Life, etc.) don't really belong in an article on LGBT rights and should instead be an entry like LGBT culture in Mexico. Also, since you have a really detailed accounting of LGBT history here, I would put that in it's own LGBT history in Mexico entry and then edit it down to more of an overview including just what's needed for the context of LGBT rights, with a link back to the full article. Really a great wealth of information, but just too much for one article, IMHO. Viciouslies (talk) 20:52, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! I just split it into two articles last week. Kraft. (talk) 23:42, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
I changed the description of areas like Mexico city from "progressive" to "cosmopolitan," because I feel this is a more neutral word that doesn't imply any kind of value judgment. Zujua (talk) 09:52, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
"of which 75% were reclaimed by their families; in 10% of the cases families identified the victim but did not reclaim their bodies, which ended up in common graves; and the remaining 5% were never identified."
This seems to add up to 90% Zujua (talk) 10:14, 7 November 2011 (UTC)
