The Cruelty of Discrimination

A Canadian man and his half-sister have been struggling with legal and social prejudice against consanguinamory. They were brought together through Genetic Sexual Attraction, but the external pressure attacking their love has been a heavy burden.

The man wanted me to share what his lover, his biological half-sister, wrote to him...

How can two people marry
Who are not in love
But two people in love
Cannot marry

It is cruelty that anyone would be forced to live a lie just because of love, and that they are denied the freedom to marry.

As he wrote...

I do love her like I have never loved any one else. I am mad at society for judging us and not allowing us to live as we want to. The lies the secrets causes even more pain.

I cannot ask friends or family (what I have left) for help as they do not understand.

My heart longs for her and she says the same back but she cannot let go of what others say. And that is getting between us.

When we are together nothing else matters.

This cruelty needs to be ended. We need full marriage equality sooner rather than later, so that an adult is free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any consenting adults.

  1. If the law was changed, my brother and I would go out and get married right now. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE, should be able to go and get married to the one(s) they love.

  2. awww that made me sad! :( Keep going with the advocacy and spreading of change Keith and Liz, you are helping way more than you think :)


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.
