Here's the rules for this site. Notice that I'm not going to break them in this thread.
I'm not discussing illegal activities, I'm discussing the legalization of illegal activities(like legalizing recreational drugs or legalizing sodomy, which I think both should be legal). If I were discussing illegal activities I would be talking about committing these acts and I have not committed incest. And please anyone who posts on this thread do not talk about committing incest, talk about whether it should be legal or not. This is a legit political issue because it can ruin the lives of peaceful people. It doesn't ruin their lives because of incest itself, instead the government is who ruins their lives with their unjust laws.
Seeing as I think it's best to assume love is not a choice, I think if any 2 peaceful people consent to loving each other, then I don't think it's wrong because it is not harming anyone. Children created through incest does not have bad effects like people think it does and the chances are just as small as a non-incest couple giving birth to a baby with birth defects. Also, farmers inbreed cattle and other livestock and chances are we are eating inbred meat when we eat at a place like McDonalds.
If you make a claim of incest causing deformities in children, then please show photos of people you know personally and proof that you know them personally to justify your claim (because otherwise people could lie in an attempt to debunk something that they don't agree with).
Make sure that all comments and posts are within the policy rules like this post is.
We need to respect the site. And please no shit talking. Lets have a rational, logical, debunking debate.
I actually do know a woman who is a product of incest, and while I am not going to post her photo because I am a decent human being, I can tell you that she has numerous medical afflictions. None of which manifest themselves physically.
Having said that, what two people do in the privacy of their bedroom is none of my business. I just think it is impossible to legislate incest without forcing either party to medically prevent themselves from having children. So while I have no interest in the federal government legislating love and companionship, I even more so have no interest in the federal government telling a man he has to get castrated if he wants to marry his sister.
