Still No Good Reason to Ban Consanguinamory

More desk clearing as we head into a holiday here in the states. A couple of months ago, ally Deified Data started a long discussion about consanguinamory. He effectively demolished Discredited Arguments #1, 18, & 20 and stayed involved in the discussion. Some more allies spoke up, and at least one person who experimented with a sibling commented as well. The anti-equality statements I saw were all Discredited Arguments, including repeating #1, 18, & 20, even though the original post already destroyed those arguments. The original poster did a good job. If you want to participate in discussions like that one, always feel free to copy & paste from the Discredited Arguments page, or adapt the material there in your own words.

The more discussions there are like this, the more people will see there is no good reason to keep laws and prejudices against consanguinamory and consanguinamorous marriages, or to deny full marriage equality.

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.
