The Pursuit of Happiness

Gretch asked at, “Is it fair/right for the Law to interfere with peoples happiness?”

The law should protect rights. The law should let someone pursue happiness in so far as they don’t force themselves on someone else or steal from/cheat someone else. In the context of GSA, the law should only interfere when rape, sexual assault, statutory rape, or child molestation/abuse is involved. It shouldn’t be a matter for the law to get involved in if adults reuinite and have passionate lovemaking sessions, or if a 16-year-old male meets his 17-year-old half-sister and they make love.

Now, as I understand it, the primary concern is of that of offspring. We have been told that medical research has stated that offspring created by inter-family relationships have a higher chance of genetic abnormalities.

Higher than the average young couple, but still minimal. This shouldn’t be used as an argument to deny the right for cosanguineous people to enjoy love, sex, and marriage. See Discredited Argument #18.)

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.
