So I've seen this come up in, surprise surprise, fanfiction more and more lately. No idea if its a new fad or just something I am running into now BUT it raised an interesting question: If you go to an alternate world and your alternate self is the opposite gender (i.e. you are male and your opposite self in the alternate world is female) and you end up dating your opposite self would it be incest?

That just has its own set of problems.

We'll figure it out when we actually cross that bridge.

I look at himself. I look at herself. We're both good looking.
How retard-looking our baby going to be?

I don't see why it would. DIfferent world. Different person. Probably different rules/laws.

It's only incest if you're viewing it that way through your own perspective.

but only that its like yourself (act) or are yourself (in every "asset"?) if in just act/think then, No it wouldn't.

So is this hypothetical or...



The main problem with incest is that since your genes are so similar, the baby is way more likely to get 2 faulty versions of the same gene and be messed up. If that problem persists into this new dimension, then I would say it's incest (just because it has the same main problem). If not, go for it you lucky bastard.

I'd assume she was some kind of alien pod person some to kill me and take my place.
And she'd think the same

I don't know. If I had a female version of myself, I'd have it made. Though, that gives new meaning to the term "Go f*ck yourself".

I think it would probably appear as incest.

I'm not really sure the babies would be retarded, but rather, wouldn't they be clones of yoursel(ves)? I mean, not including crossing over and all the other kinds of funky things the chromosomes of our haploid cells can undergo during meiosis... but if it's like a strict diploid -> haploid with each gamete literally getting one set of the pair of chromosomes without any other transformations, then yeah you'd just be cloning yourself.

But idk if I would have sex with an opposite gender version of myself. It's one thing to not hate yourself, but it's another if you see yourself outside yourself and find yourself attractive I think. Like if there was a clone of yourself (same sex), idk if you would see him/her as yourself. I think you couldn't treat him/her the same as you do yourself.

For some reason this makes me think of Lazerus Long's twin female clones

Well, as long as it's opposite sex, I'll like it.

I'd seen my doppleganger in person, the same gender as I am.
I want to punch that person so bad.
