Update on Father-Daughter Couple Prosecuted Second Time

I still can’t believe the authorities are wasting resources punishing consenting adults for loving each other, but here we are. Here’s the latest on the case I already covered with this post.

A 47-year-old man and his 26-year-old daughter have been sentenced for the second time for having sex.

Andrew Butler and Nicola Yates, both from Birmingham, pleaded guilty in July to having sex with a relative between 2008 and 2010.

Butler was sentenced to 10 months and Yates was given a 26-week suspended sentence at Birmingham Crown Court.

The charges shouldn’t have been filed in the first place. Why can consenting adults work out this matter for themselves? Actions like this keep so many consanguinamorous lovers in the closet. Many of them have great relationships, but they rightly fear discimination, bullying, and prosecution.... prosecution... for the "crime" of loving each other. Everyone involved in this prosecution should wake up and smell the coffee (or tea) of the twenty-first century.

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.
