Moms Speak Up on Consanguinamory

Topics relevant to this blog pop up in various discussion venues, such as cafemom.com, and sometimes the discussions aren't deleted before I find them. Here's some of what I found over there earlier today.

Anonymous  asked "Do you think incest should be illegal? If it's between two consenting adults, do you think it should be against the law? Why or why not?"

It is the position of this blog that an adult should be free to be with any and all consenting adults, regardless of gender, number, or relation, without prosecution, bullying, or discrimination. What do the moms say?

Mom-to-2kids chimed in as an ally...

 
No I dont. What consenting adults do with each other shouldn't be anyone's business.

lovemymini wants to continue to criminalize love between consenting adults, citing Discredited Arguments #1 and 18.
Yes, because it's disgusting. I also don't think the world needs anymore inbred idiots running around.
There were many other allies checking in, even ones who are personally disgusted by the thought of consanguinamory. A few other people basically repeated Discredited Arguments #1 and 18.

SuchAKillJoy added Discredited Argument #21 for good measure.
I do think its a big deal and that if you can not find one person who is attractive and you want to have sex with outside of your family, there is something wrong with you and I do not want you around me.

It is really sad to see how many people know nothing of genetics. It takes many generations of incest before it starts to effect the children. Everybody wants to force incest to get that next designer puppy, but when it comes to consenting adults they don't even bother to learn the facts.
It is important to keep in mind that having sex is not the same thing as having children.

It was good to see so many allies speaking up!

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 yahoo 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.
