Warning: The following article is of a NSFW nature, obviously.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz appears to have 'liked' a porn tweet on Twitter.

This isn't just a big deal because the Texas Senator once tried, and failed, to get his party's nomination for the 2016 president election. It's a big deal because Mr Cruz once waged a legal campaign against dildos and sex toys, arguing that members of the public have no right...

...to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship...

He's also supported banning forms of birth control in the past.

His puritanical leg to stand on is gone.

Despite the website being 11-years-old now, it seems many people still don't realise that everyone else on Twitter can see your likes. They're a very public thing.

So when he decided to like a tweet by @SexuallPosts (who now proudly boast the tagline "Follow for the porn Ted Cruz watches"), pretty much the entire internet saw.

And of course they had some fun with it:

There's also a serious point here:

America needs to stop its fixation with god-fearing politicians who get on a pulpit to demonise sexuality.
