If you don't like it, so don't watch it. Period.

I am not actively seeking incest anime, and never want to watch them. I do a few researches if the shows smell like it.

I saw a thread on MAL that, I don't know if people are serious or not, support incest with all the reasons as for gay marriage. LOL, that's actually messed up.

^ My definition of incest are blood brothers/ blood sisters and parents/ their blood children. If they are not related, it can't be called incest. Since cousin marriage are approved in many places, I don't see it as incest.

Considering I'm old enough to have grown up in a time when it was quite common to use the same terms used for any type of homosexual relationship as I see be used here about incestous ones, how is it "messed up"?

Please explain using logical, non-emotional reasoning why one is acceptable and the other is not, other than that the society you have grown up in has become accepting of one and not the other.

Doesn't bother me....it's just animation. It is one of the things I love about anime, the willingness and bravery to explore human experiences. Anime has a lot of controversial subject matter, from child abuse to incest. Anime is a reflection of human society in a lot of ways. Subject matter that could never be covered in live action can be freely explored in animation. That is it's genius.

But there are anime I think is "gross" and I just don't watch them. Some of them are popular titles here on cr.

I wonder if the Romans thought along these lines?

Look it up. The historical answers may surprise you. It hasn't been that long ago in human history where children were considered miniature adults rather than just kids as the way we view them today.

As for brother--sister hook-ups in anime I always liked the sensitive portrayal touched upon in Koi Kaze.

That is the BS reason stated by people that don't understand genetics. Full siblings producing a child produces double the risk of genetic diseases that the parents children would be at risk for already. So, this means if the parent had a 0.001% chance of having a child with a particular disease, that chance would increase to 0.002%. Not necessarily a big issue. That "increased" risk could decrease considerably if the parents were even half siblings, provided the other parent of the sibling didn't carry the genetics for the disease. If however, instead of the other parent being a sibling, it was someone considered unrelated (everyone is ultimately related at some point in their ancestry), and the unrelated person's children would have a risk of 0.004% of the particular disease, then the risk would actually be increased by producing a child with the unrelated person instead of their sibling.

One of the real reasons that incest is terrible is because of the impact on the family structure. Another is influential pressure that is typically involved in such a relationship.


I have no idea how you came up with that math, but good ol' high school punnet squares are alittle easier.

Here's some lovely wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inbreeding#Measures_of_Inbreeding:_Definitions_and_some_values to pepper that newfound knowledge.

I don't think you know much about genetics, as I am sure you found that information online somewhere. The problem with incest is that it does increase that chances of disorders by 200% which has been accepted, but the actual diseases aren't the problems it can cause other issues for example, a decrease in fertility has been shown(still being studied). Though incest isn't a human issue, it is a breeding issue. Animals are breed to keep the good genes and get rid of the bad, which inbreeding is used quite often if they find a gene that can be beneficial the same goes with getting rid of the harmful genes. Your "real" issue you pointed out is social problem and nothing else. Now with all logical non anime related business, we are talking about fiction why does it matter if the author wanted an incest ending or story line for his plot? It is all about telling a story that he/she wanted to tell and they don't need to care if others disagree. Though you can all have your own opinions on the moral issue, I for one don't care what others do with private life.

I said it's messed up because the thread give me the impression that they lump gay marriage and incest together, which does not sit right for me; they are different matters. It's like saying if you support gay marriage, you should support incest. It's true that the thread did not specifically define incest.

For me, you can't not speak about incest without involving emotion. IMO, it's morally unacceptable. As human, there are some moral lines that we should not cross.

In the scientists' point of view, as some previous posts have stated, incest greatly increases birth defects and illness, etc. As our technology and medicine advancing, the death rate due to illness become lower; we are no longer subject to natural selection. Many people with illness can live longer and have children, and they pass down all those recessive genes to next generations. In another words, the gene pool of human is very weak compared to other animals.

Only if blood relation is an issue do I find it a bit off-putting. But, then again, I wouldn't understand them since I have never romantically liked anybody related to me by blood.

exactly. I'm sorry, but if I want to experience normal boy dating normal girl in normal situation, I'll go out on a date myself. I have several real world morals I would never abandon, but I've pretty much broken them all when dealing with fictional media be they anime, books, movies or games.
