Why is Incest Wrong?

Subjective. The best we can do is determine the harm which is causes society. Legalizing murder is wrong because of the effect it would have on society. But what about incest? What problems could it cause. 25 years ago someone would've said being gay was a mental disorder. Now incest is wrong just because it doesn't fit with your taste?

Clearly you do not know what morality means. I don't care if it does me harm it's just wrong.

It's a curse to the offspring, and that 25% chance of a screw up is per gene, not period. The chances of offspring coming out alright are laughably slim. I'd be quicker to buy a powerball ticket and bet my life that I'd win top prize.

I personally don't believe adult incest is wrong. But society is constantly brainwashing us to believe its wrong... Some reasons are reasonable like you shouldn't form that type of relationship with someone you're raising...

But if two people related by blood haven't met until they're adults.. I don't see how that is different to meeting complete strangers...

For example; I haven't even seen my cousin until we were both adults, and honestly I felt a strong attraction to him because he looks like a Japanese movie star... To me, he's just another stranger... There's no trick in my body telling "hey you guys are related, don't feel attracted to him".


Due to my own experiences, I'm more open minded about adult incest tbh. People can't control how they feel. We 're only against it because we've been brainwashed by society to believe this way, there nothing in our body telling it is wrong.
Like if you found out your partner was related to you, would you stop loving him/her? :-/

If you ask me, incest is wrong for a wide variety of reasons, least of which is the fact you're having it on with a member of your immediate family...


Genetics medicine and love.

Morality is subjective. Try again.

Actually, there was a case where siblings met and married and broke off soon after. It isn't any more of society brainwashing than nature telling us it's wrong via the westermarck effect and so forth in my opinion.

Morality is subjective. Why exactly is it wrong? What harm could it cause to society?

Inbreeding, if that counts?

I considered that angle, but the chances of off spring as Vulpyne told me are slim.

I think the chance is doubled so it goes something like this:

non-incest - 2%
1st incest - 4%
2nd incest - 8%
3rd incest - 16%
4th incest - 32%
5th incest - 64%

or something :/ I know 1st gen was 4% and there was something about doubling but the rest is BS lol
Yeah.. The topic comes up on Reddit every so often

Inbreeding isn't limited to incest, it's just more likely to occur.
Whoops! I went to confirm this and turns out I misunderstood something by reading it out of context xD

Then do go on and tell me what is right about insect. They share the same father and mother, as siblings they are supposed to love each other in a 'brotherly' or 'sisterly' way and nothing more in my opinion. If it does get accepted into society then let's say that in 25 years time insect was the 'norm' and people had relationships with their siblings; firstly there is the birth deficiency argument, but my greatest concern is that if incest is right then people may as well have relationships with their parents or even pets because it's 'love' and "love has no boundaries" but boundaries have to be put in place to stop anarchy. Social boundaries are needed and I think incest is socially unacceptable.

Indeed, but the risk is only 25%, and by that logic, anyone with a genetic disorder need to be prevented from breeding.


Let's assume that scientifically there were no issues with inbreeding. Although in actuality there are some, go look up white tigers and you will see what I mean.

Anyway under the assumption that there will be no genetic defects, it's primarily tradition.

Someone mentioned to me that it's forbidden in the bible somewhere. So there is a reason for Christians to look down upon it.

Other than that, you have to remember that for a long time women were viewed more as tools than people. Your daughter wasn't your 'beloved little girl' she was a living contract. You used her to establish a connection with another family. Meaning that allowing incest was basically a waste. You wanted your son to get himself a good wife, and you wanted to send your daughter off somewhere profitable.

Anyway there were many reasons that incest became taboo. Some of those are pointless in this day and age, but traditions are difficult to cast aside.

I am personally an only child, so I do not have a sister to lust after or not lust after. Seeing as it is such a foreign subject to me, I have no particular opinion on it. Thinking about that type of relationship with my mother does disgust me though. So I am not immune to traditional influences either.

I am bad at giving gut reactions though. I am pretty proud of my instinct to analyse everything and try to find the most beneficial solution. So if I did come across someone in real life who was in a incestual relationship that is mutual, then I don't think I would really care. I would probably weigh the outcomes of it, tell them that most people would be apprehensive, and then just go on with my business.

As far as Oreimo goes, which people have mentioned, I just didn't like Kirino. I would have hated a Kirino ending even if she wasn't his sister.
