Do the Kardashians Need to Come Out as Consanguinamorous?

[I am bumping up this old entry because it has been getting hits lately and it still relevant. I will add a note at the end, too.]

It's happened before, and it's happening again... questions about possible consanguinamory in the Kardashian clan. This time, Linda Stasi protests too much at nypost.com.
On Sunday night, Khloe Kardashian Odom stooped even lower than Kim could go by hitting on her own brother, Rob.
Stasi is unaware that this actually happens between siblings who are not on TV shows, and most if it is done without "stooping."

Anyway, Khloe, the Chewbacca of the Kardashians, proved herself to be even more of a repulsive lowlife than her fame-whore sister, Kim.
I see: flirting bad, calling people a wookie, repulsive, lowlife, whore... good?

We’re talking about implied incest for ratings! What next? Reality-show murder?
EWW: Rob, Khloe Kardashian
There's already plenty of murdering on TV. Why not depict flirting and affection between siblings, which, again, does happen in life? Affection is preferable to murder, right?
I confess I only watched this garbage after being urged to do so by a guy who watched with his family and was stunned and disgusted by what took place.
Riiiight, Linda. Are you going to watch some late night Cinemax next to see if responsible condom use is depicted?

On the episode, Khloe’s brother Rob the deadbeat (which, in that family, means you don’t have as many endorsements as the rest of them), supposedly moves in with her and her husband, Lamar Odom.
Jealous much?
Khloe tells Rob to promise he’ll never give her attitude again, to which he replies after a bit more idiotic banter, “If I do, I will reduce the size of my penis.” What? I can’t wait to speak like that with my brother.
Chewy then coos, “You don’t have a penis, you have a [bleep],” while draping herself over him adding, “Lamar thinks I’m like Cleopatra, and I’m gonna marry my brother.”

When Rob tells her that’s not going to happen, she says (warning: turn away if you have a weak stomach),“You won’t [bleep] me?"
Sounds like teasing to me. Siblings never ever tease each other, of course.



Maybe that’s why marriages outside their family never work: incest is best.
What if that was the case? So what?

She goes back twelve years to bash someone...
I thought this kind of last-taboo nonsense had seen its one and only nationwide celeb endorsement after Angelina Jolie declared how much in love with her brother she was at the 2000 Oscars — followed by bro pressing himself against her from the back and wrapping his arms around her waist.

My brother wouldn’t do this to me if I needed the freaking Heimlich Maneuver. He’d let me die and tell everyone I ate the chicken too fast.
That's her problem. Some siblings actually like each other. Some love each other in every way. She prefers siblings be at war.

Chewy Kardashian went even further than Jolie when she used —on TV yet — the “f” question that should never, period, be asked when addressing a freaking sibling!

Why not? Does she have a good reason?
We’d all be walking around with two heads.

Ah, Discredited Argument #18. Linda Stasi thinks everyone would be having children with their siblings unless we all strongly condemn it. Some would call this projection. Given what she wrote above about her brother, perhaps what we're seeing is frustration or unrequited love?

This means that either the K Klan is lower than anyone could have imagined, or the reason Khloe won’t take that DNA test to prove her paternity is because she isn’t a Kardashian after all. Or a human being.
Would you call her subhuman? Stay classy, Stasi.

Whether or not the Kardashians are consanguinamorous, and if they are, whether or not they come out of the closet, adult siblings should be free to tease, kid, flirt, and be affectionate. I have yet to see a single good reason as to why sibling consanguinamory should be categorically condemned.

UPDATE: The Kardashians do appear to crave the spotlight. Hinting at, or outright coming out as consanguinamorous would certainly get them attention. While I suspect most people in consanguinamorous relationships would prefer better representation in the media than the Kardashians, at the very least a move on the part of these television personalities would get people talking more about consanguineous sex and relationships, and it is my belief that the more talk there is about it, the more people will realize it is ridiculous to discriminate against consanguinamorous people.

  1. People who rag on siblings who are FWBs shouldn't knock what they haven't tried.

  2. "That's her problem. Some siblings actually like each other. Some love each other in every way. She prefers siblings be at war."

    Sounds a lot like what was told to me when I was younger. When I moved in with my mother and sisters, I became close to my younger sister. We were innocent, though my peers teased and bullied me for getting along so well with her. Like I said we were innocent, and I cared for her as I would think a normal sibling would. Apparently my wdefinition of normal was wrong as to my peers, I should have been almost antagonistic to my siblings.

    Linda:"My brother wouldn’t do this to me if I needed the freaking Heimlich Maneuver. He’d let me die and tell everyone I ate the chicken too fast."

    I wonder. Would he avoid doing this out of apparent hatred, disgust, or fear. If the former, I feel sorry for them. I wonder what could cause me to hate a family member so much that I would refuse to save them. If disgust, I ask what is dirty about saving somebody. It would be telling if she is saying her brother wouldn't perform the hemlich maneuver because he was connecting the act with something sexual. My guess it's that or he's afraid. Afraid that somebody may see him save her and misconstrue what the act. if it's this then she is implying her brother cares more about his image than his sister.

    She seems like she is condoning whatever behavior she is implying from her brother. Is she saying siblings should hate each other to the point that they wouldn't help one another? Is she saying her brother is a pervert who associates the heimlich maneuver with a sexual act? Is she saying her brother cares more about his image than her, and if so, why is she putting so much weight into a random misunderstanding. Couldn't they just explain themselves? Is she saying that such an act could be seen as sexual? or is she saying others might see subtext?

    Whatever the case, I don't,t much like what she might be implying If my sister needed help, I wouldn't hesitate to at least try to save her. I'd want to be like Nier, who'd go to the ends of the earth to save Yonah(his daughter in the Gestalt version, sister in the Replicant version). If it were misconstrued, so be it. Public opinion shouldn't change what is right.
