I'm not talking about whether it's wrong or right. Whoever you love and want to be with should be your own business as long as you are both consenting adults. What I meant was the possibility that some people might not know they are related because they don't know the other side of their family very well. It might be an important thing to consider if they wanted children just to be aware of the risks.

I wasn't really aiming that at anyone in particular, I was just stating what I felt on the whole issue of incestuous relationships. Also, all the ignorant people going, "That's gross!" really made me want to say what I said.

blue-y's post earlier brings up a very important thing to note. The history of the couple in the news had a lot of things they didn't know about themselves until later. Still they have chosen to pursue each other as a romantic couple.

I personally do not see how it is detrimental to the rest of society. There may be supporting evidence to genetic instability but that is a risk people are entitled to. You may think that it would be unfair to the children. However let me ask since when did you ever have a choice in being born the way you are? People give up easily in trying to live extraordinary lives and often scrutinize those that do.

It's been happening for centuries. but, are the numbers increasing? Probably. No idea. Don't care to look into something like that since the thought of it is repulsive & immoral.

Also, who are you to say someone's love is wrong?

I think the topic of incest is hardly any different from the topic of homosexuality and such. The only thing that changes is awareness of it, because as time goes on and people become more open minded, there is less reason to be afraid letting information get out / openly admitting things. The number of occurrences isn't the important value, just awareness.

Now that's the topic, so that's all I'll put up for the debate. The topic isn't about whether incest itself is acceptable. But I'll summarize a bit anyhow with noting I prioritize the importance of love.

Incestuous people are sad. The rise of incest is an astonishing phenomenon. Birth defects are rising from what I see. I always see deformed people or people with mental issues or even physically defected people. Incestuous people should not use their parents or siblings for their own pleasure because that's just immoral. They should really find their own person to love. And for fathers who have sex with their own daughters, go do your own wife...oh my god...

Incest is just sick... I mean think about the kids... It's like "hey dad, you're married to your sister, which is my mom, but SHOULD be my aunt"
Oh wow, that is just one messed up family. And, there are side effects to incest which is malfuction of the brain.

It's not really any of my business if siblings and whatnot like one another. Love is love. I also recall something in the newspaper a while back about an incestuous relatoinship. The brother and sister were seperated at birth, and when they met a long time after they had no clue they were siblings. They split up when they found out they were related. D:

This.

You don't get to judge who someone can and cannot love even if it's a blood relative or someone of the same gender.

How would you react if I told you it was disgusting and heinous to be in love with a particular person?

Whatever happened to freedom of choice?

I've actually read about a real married couple, both adopted, who learned they were actually fraternal twins, so this is definitely something that people should consider.

I think so. With all the rape and all. People losing their minds. People did it WAY back then, so why would it stop now?
