We also get comments that are, shall we say, less than supportive. More often than not, they're little more than one of the Discredited Arguments, usually 1, 4, or 7, especially 1. It just goes to show you there's no good reason to deny people their fundamental rights.
Here are a couple of recent comments submitted anonymously that were NOT published, because they didn't meet basic standards.
If you don't want to read what the haters have to say, don't continue.
Commenting on this entry was this...
Ok ! Listen, what about this story merits a celebratory word from a living soul?We congratulate people when they find love.
I have just finished reading SEVERAL different stories all incestuous. Father/daughter/sisters/brothers/moms/sons...now grannys and grandchildreN. WTF?!!!!!SEVERAL? Wow. Well, yes, there are millions, perhaps hundred of millions, of people who have been with or are currently with a close relative.
I'd rather sleep with a goat, the family per fido...Suit yourself.
but relationship with a relative is a new level of VILE.It's not vile, and it's not new.
HOW IN THE HELL IS THIS ANYWHERE NEAR OK?Well, you see, consenting adults have basic human rights. you didn't provide a single reason to deny anyone their rights. And generally, love is a good thing.
That comment didn't warrant publishing because it is the same old, tired, arm-waving. It's helpful to show the lack of justification to be antiequality, but otherwise it doesn't add anything to the discussion.
The second comment wasn't published because it has certain words we redact. It was left after our page on Genetic Sexual Attraction.
You can't be serious.We are very serious about people having their rights.
This is revolting.It's revolting that people who meet or are reunited after many years apart experience a powerful attraction? Uh, OK.
How can you even eat or drink or digest anything while reading this stuff??I'll tell you what, I work up quite the appetite while having great time with my dear friends. Their love for each other is so beautiful it is hard to describe. I haven't ever felt compersion like that before.
Nobody should be f---ing their mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin, etc!!Did you even read the page? GSA involves people who weren't socialized as family. Anyway, who are you to decide who other people can't love or how they can't love?
The relationships you have with your family are NEVER SUPPOSED TO BECOME SEXUAL.None of us would be here if they didn't. But again, what gives you the justification to deny these rights to anyone?
I can't even believe there are people questioning this, let alone supporting it, let alone DOING it!Wait until they're getting married!
Have you liberals opened your mind up so big and so wide that your brains fell out????People of every political persuasion support full marriage equality. You'd be surprised at the people around you who do. You'd be surprised at how many people around you have experienced GSA.
Children resulting from these situations are going to mix it up with normal people and start f---ing with the human genome.You don't know what you're talking about. Really. If anything, full marriage equality will decrease genetic problems because more people who carry genetic problems will get counseling and help.
How terrible! Would that there were some biological mechanism that only allowed humans to reproduce if they were operating at or above an average IQ.Maybe we should set up camps to this end? Invade Poland, France, and other countries?
This trailer park s--- is propelling humankind back into the stone age at a million miles an hour.Ha! Some of the wealthiest and most intelligent people around are in consanguinamorous relationships. You could be living next to someone who is and you wouldn't even know it. How about you stop slamming other people for their feelings and how they decide to love each other? Most people experiencing GSA ended up in their situations through the actions of others, not their own.
Hey everybody, let's choose love over hate. Let's support equal rights for all adults.
