Poll: If there was a vote to repeal "Incest" would you vote for it or against it? (64 votes)

For it. Whether i'd do it or not, people should be allowed to date whoever they want. 44%
Against it. It should never be practiced, ever. It is unacceptable! 56%

as in if there was a vote to repeal the incest law which is the law against marrying within your family bloodline, would you vote for it (to repeal) or against it (leave the law as is)? let's see what people will vote

Well, we're already headed down that slippery slope of letting anyone marry whoever they want, "because they're born that way"

So i suppose if someone is legitimately attracted to their immediate family, and wants to date/marry them, who's to say it's unnatural?

GET OFFA MA PROPERTAE!!!

Just come out and ask what you really want to ask: Do you find incest acceptable?

If two adults consent to marry each other, then go for it. With that said, I find the thought of incestuous relationships disgusting.

i'd vote for it. everything should stay in the family.

Pooping in toilets is unnatural. Incest causes deformities and gene mutations. Its more a question of whats harmful.

I could see that being valid back when there were only a few million humans, but I think we've gone past that. I'm not saying that inbreeding is good, but it usually doesn't result in horrible mutants. That's a crteation of science fiction.

But yeah...you certainly don't want big chunks of the human population inbreeding. But that's also kind of a non-issue. It's not as if all guys out there really want to bang their sisters and their moms, and the only thing stopping them is the fact that it's illegal. Legal, not legal, whatever. The number of people willing to do it is still gonna be so small that it's not gonna have any substantial effect on a species with a population of 7 billion.

Liquor and Tobacco are harmful.

They're both legal.

I'd like to add that there are all sorts of genetic diseases (some of them painful or deadly) which have a high chance of being passed down to children if the parent produces offspring.

Yet, we still don't make it illegal for a guy to have kids if he's been diagnosed with Huntington's disease.

Slow down boys, ill make this a a response to both of you. Cheeseburgers are harmful as well, you obviously cant ban everything harmful it comes down to how harmful it is... murder? pretty harmful, banned. Trying to kiss grizzly bears, pretty harmful, but only to you, not banned.

And yea, dont know a ton about huntingtons disease... but i do remember seeing something on tv about some couple passing a terrible disease down to like their first 3 kids and thinking, someone should really stop these two from having kids. Tad bit more difficult to regulate though.

I'd vote for the "I don't care" but I don't see it.

If you want your kids to come out special, that's fine by me.

#14 Edited by XilePrincess (13130 posts) -

I don't care what people do as long as all involved are the age of consent and are willing participants. I just hope they take steps not to reproduce because obviously there are risks.

#15 Posted by AncientDozer (8129 posts) -

There are supposedly actual consequences of incest and inbreeding. If siblings love each other that way I suppose I can't argue with it but consider the ramifications of incest over generations. If what we hear is true, health issues will be a big concern.

And if game of thrones is to be believed, you will give birth to a Joffrey. Do you want to give birth to a Joffrey? I do not.

As people have mentioned, there are diseases which are very likely to be passed down to the offspring, and we cannot stop those people from reproducing.If a person with Huntington's disease (for example), has a child, that child has a 50% chance of being born with it.

Whats wrong with just making it illegal, inbreeding results in higher genetic abnormalities and weaker immune systems for offspring... seems fine keeping things the way they are. If someone had an argument for why inbreeding would be beneficial, that might make a little more sense.

Where are you ostracizing them to exactly? small pro inbreeding communities? because that only exacerbates the issue.

But i think more importantly, why? why would anyone be pro incest?

How else would Adam and Eve populate the world?

Did God create a harem for Adam to play around in, so there would be genetic diversity?

#19 Posted by carlandcarl (1249 posts) -

Im usually all for letting who ever marry they want. But I think it would be unfair to their future children, I don't know the stats off the top of my head but I know the child is more likely to have physically and/or mental deficiencies which is something we should avoid when populating

Only over a long term.

It would require multiple generations of incest to occur within the same family.

Ah alright I didn't know that, then they should go for it as long as they aren't forced into for some sick cult or community

As long as they're both consenting adults, why not.

#23 Posted by CyberLips (1824 posts) -

What if a man wants to be in a relationship with his daughter or a woman with her son? I agree that two adults can do whatever they want and that you can't help who you fall in love with, but that's too much even for me. What if these people have children of their own? How twisted would it be to tell the child that his dad is also his uncle?

#25 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26733 posts) -

I don't know, the possibility of another Joffrey out there is terrifying.

#26 Posted by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -

I don't necessarily agree with the practice but if it's two consenting adults then who am I to say they shouldn't?

#27 Edited by Storm_Marine (12138 posts) -

Only if both people are sterile.

And even then, the idea of parents being able to groom their kids for when they turn 18 is pretty horrible.

#28 Edited by LJS9502_basic (152416 posts) -

Only with sterilization. Otherwise society has to pick up the problems caused by their decision.

Even then I'm against it.....I've read some psychological studies that say there is always a victim due to the balance of power in the relationship.

That is a really serious concern, also the grooming of your children as someone mentioned above. Of course, I doubt a law would stop such people from these types of harmful relationships

Lol, imagine going on a date with a cute girl and when she starts talking shit about her ex. "He sounds like an asshole", "Yeah he is, but all big brothers are, right?" "Wait what!?". No better way to chase a man away.

I'd abstain from voting. I think it's sick, but I ain't gonna stand in the way of them being together. Thing I'd be concerned about are those defects.

What legal reasons are there for the prohibition to exist where it does? Because as far as most cases of incest go its illegal on grounds such as child sex abuse from a parent or older sibling. Where it concerns adults is it a prohibition of marriage? Or is is a prohibition of sexual engagement? Or a prohibition of reproduction?

Another thing to look at though is why are the laws being repealed, because it might not be an appeal for or against it For instance in some states (looking at the Wikipedia entry for Laws regarding incest), some states have penalties of up to...

Life imprisonment - Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee.

25 yearsimprisonment - Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky.

20 years imprisonment - Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Pennsylvania, and Vermont

15 years imprisonment - Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia

14 years imprisonment - California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Idaho

10 years imprisonment - North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Minnesota

5 years imprisonment - 5 years imprisonment in Hawaii, Florida

Now, in no way do I feel that incest warrants such severe penalties. Maybe they simply want to repeal the laws because of the unnecessarily large sentences associated with them.

Personally, in a legal sense it shouldn't be outlawed for consenting adults, but I do take issue with sexual reproduction, that's something I feel should be prohibited, otherwise it's very much a victimless issue except when children are concerned due to higher potential for birth defects.

Incest creates many possible, and probable problems with an infant if it is conceived in this manner. So why the heck would I vote for it.

I can't believe that there has been this many people saying they would vote for it. Bunch of first Cousin, and Sister rapers I tell ya.
