Ratting Out Lovers For Violating Unjust Incest Laws

What causes someone to try to prevent others from having their relationships? Jealousy? Revenge? General hate?

Someone found this blog by searching for how to contact police about incest marriages.

Why would someone rat others out to the police? If people are living as spouses, they should be encouraged and celebrated, unless there is domestic violence. I'm not talking about BDSM or anything else consensual. But if you're a witness to domestic violence, call the police about that. Don't call the police because you are bothered by other people being happy together.

It is bad enough that close relatives don't have the freedom to marry. It is even worse that there are still laws in some places against consensual sex between close relatives. Incest laws should only exist as parts of laws against child abuse and statutory rape. It is worse still that law enforcement will use laws against consensual sex to prosecute and imprison people. But worst of all is that a civilian would use those realities to rat someone else out.

Support the rights of adults to love, sex, and marriage with any consenting adults.

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.
