Is Nick Cassavetes an Ally For Consanguinamorists?

Several sources are reporting that acclaimed and accomplished Hollywood filmmaker Nick Cassavetes, currently screening and promoting "Yellow,"  has spoken out for relationship rights for all adults, including consensual incest (consanguinamory.)

This will probably draw hateful comments from people who mistake consensual sex between close relatives with rape/molestation by close relative. This is as ridiculous as equating consensual casual sex with rape by a stranger.

There is no good reason to deny relationship rights, including sexual freedom, to consenting adults and anyone who says so, especially from a visible platform, should be commended for speaking out.

Tomorrow, I hope to have more coverage about Cassavetes' statement and the reaction to it.

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.
