Living People Have Rights

There's interesting political activity out of Sweden, as reported by Sara Malm at dailymail.co.uk...

The youth wing of the Swedish Liberal party has filed a motion to legalize necrophilia and incest.
Sex (that's consensual, to be redundant) between living adults should not be a criminal matter. That simple concept, by definition, includes consensual incest. Our general legal system does not treat a corpse the same as a living person, so necrophilia involves a different set of questions than adult intergenerational, interracial, gay, polyamorous, and consanguinamorous relationships.
Liberal Youth of Sweden said that just because it is 'viewed as unusual and disgusting', does not mean that the deprived sexual acts should be illegal.
Right. That would be Discredited Argument #1.

  1. What's your argument for or against necrophilia.
    A corpse can't consent, but neither can a rock, and you can argue the two are the same from a legal perspective.

    1. I don't argue for or against necrophilia. It falls outside of the focus of this blog.

  2. But you must have a position on it? Personally I'm against.

    BTW, here's something that should be of interest to you:

    A brother/sister case. It's in French, but GT should suffice for basic understanding. Note that in France incest between consenting adult, including full-blood siblings, is legal (though without the ability to marry). They still are forced in hiding due to the fear of stigma.

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.
