Update on Wisconsin Case

Here’s an update on a story I wrote about before, in which a man was criminally charged in Wisconsin for consensual sex with an adult woman: his sister. She is now being charged with incest as well.

If convicted, the woman may be fined up to $25,000 and a maximum penalty of 12.5 years in prison.

Sigh. There are a few states in the US that would not take this ridiculous action. None should.

It should not be a crime to for consenting adults to have sex in private. If it isn’t your thing to have sex with someone of the same sex or someone closely related to you, then don’t. But how can someone not only deny someone else the freedom to marry, but the right to sex?

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
