Congratulations to Bobbie Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon

Bobbi Kristina Brown and Nick Gordon plan are planning to marry. Good for them. We've taken a look in prior blog updates at how their relationship is being subject to prejudice in the news media. The latest coverage I found was from Jessica Carlson at examinercom...

Krissy's fiancé, Nick Gordon, 23, was taken in by Houston when Gordon was only 12. Houston was Gordon's godmother. Although Houston never legally adopted Gordon, Houston raised him as her own and he grew up as Krissy's older brother. Gordon's mother was allegedly forced to give him up because she could no longer care for him.
They know each other well, probably, and perhaps there is nobody else in the world better suited for each other. That they spent time in the same home does not, and should not, hinder their romance.

“I’m in love with him,” says Bobbi.

“They wanna see us fail,” she says to the camera. “I got one thing to say — you won’t.”

I hope not. Reality shows don't seem to have a great effect on relationships. May they have a blissful marriage full of joy and love. Extending the ridiculous bigotry against consanguineous relationships, which is bad enough, to relationships like this one shows just how irrational and arbitrary taboos against consensual adult relationships can be.

  1. 12 years old? Too late even for the Westermarck Effect, this case isn't incest at all.


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.
