The Avengers 2: Earlier this month, it was revealed that Marvel would be adding incestuous mutant twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the superhero sequel, and this week, Joss Whedon gave an interview about the controversial pair, stating: "They’re not there to make things easier. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.” Does that mean they're in there to make out??Any fans of those characters who want to comment here?
She also lists Hjemlengsel, which I blogged about here.
Unfortunately, Maeby lumps together assault with consensual sex and affection, and stigmatizes consensual sex, as do some of the productions she mentions. It makes as much sense as having a single list of depictions of sexual assaults by strangers and casual sex between strangers in media for the last week. Entertainers, journalists, legislators, and law enforcement should make a distinction between assault/abuse/molestation and consensual relationships and sex between adults. I challenge Maeby and others to read the words of people who are hurt by prejudice against consanguinamory and to consider that there's no good reason why people in such relationships should be discriminated against.
