Jesus was quoting the OT.
Jesus was referencing what one should do in a M/F marriage.
They didn't have gay marriage back then.
They were talking about marriage - commonly understood as male and female.
This is ridiculously out of context.
Well... that's also a bit of a misnomer.
Discussing marriage in the context of a sexual relationship, then there were most certainly homosexual relationships. They were in fact, accepted and encouraged in many circumstances.
Yeah, but they didn't have a ritual that recognized that relationship.
