I'm not even sure what a third cousin is but it sounds so far away that you could live your whole life and not even know that side of your family exists. Like they probably have their own family reunions. Anyways, I'd say yes.

Why are you guys so grossed out by this? Yeah, you probably shouldn't be making babies with your family members, but is there something wrong with doing anything less than that? You act like no one should be sexually-attracted to their cousins, when in fact it is completely natural. What is the difference between having casual sex with your cousin and hooking up with a stranger at a party that might be a cousin of yours?

Yes, why do you let this foreknowledge bother you?

Yes. Just like I'd date a 20th cousin, or a 80th cousin, or a 5 millionth cousin. Fuck, we're all related to rocks anyways. Have sex with whatever cousins you want. I'd even have protected sex with my sister if I had one.

You asked what the difference between the two was, and that's what I responded to.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, marriage between first cousins is legal in 26 states. Six of those have specific conditions that must be met, e.g. over the age of 65, unable to bear children, in some cases, etc. but the other 20 have no such restrictions. I'd also noted that there are no restrictions on marriages between second or third cousins. I have no issues with people who engage in any of it. The original question was asked regarding third cousins. I said I wouldn't do so personally, but you're the one assuming I'm "grossed out," which is not the case. I also wouldn't hook up with a stranger, either.

I'm not into casual sex, nor have I found myself attracted to any of my cousins, so your assumptions are moot. I acknowledge that it can happen for other people, and does, but has not happened to me. So there you go, making unfounded assumptions again.

LOL. What makes you think that I wasn't talking hypothetically? Don't accuse me of making unfounded assumptions when you make unfounded assumptions about the questions I ask.

You were the one who asked this in the first post I quoted:

Yes, I did ask that question to anybody who was grossed out by this, I am not directing this specific question or any follow-up questions to anybody who is not grossed out by it, so you shouldn't have answered in the first place. By answering the follow-up question, you are expressing an interest to defend the position of being grossed-out by this behavior, which is why I assumed that the foreknowledge bothered you, because you are trying to provide an explanation of why people are grossed out by this.

Why are you being so anal about this?

My answer of foreknowledge was deliberately succinct, because the reasoning behind it should be obvious.

Casual sex with someone you have never met, and may never encounter again, is not the same as casual sex with someone you know, and know to be a blood relative. The two cannot be equated, because foreknowledge exists in the latter scenario, and not in the former. Some people see no issue with either or both of these scenarios, and I acknowledged that. But for those who might see sex with a close blood relative as a problem, that foreknowledge would likely preempt the action. Thus, it is fair to say that foreknowledge would change the outcome of events, for some people.
