Unfortunately incest between father and daughter isn't too unusual, even in the U.S. My late wife had a book in the works at the time of her death about adult survivors of sexual abuse. Lots of sad stories.

My current wife and her sis were both victims of incest by their father from infancy to adolescence. Her mother was also a "victim", as she knew about it but didn't stop it. She finally committed suicide. My wife and her sister have struggled (unsuccessfully) to recover from the abuse all their lives. Luckily their father died before I met him, or I might have been the cause of his death!

Granted, you could argue that some of the harm was done because of society's outlook on incest.

I was taught in school many, many years ago that incest can cause severe disorders in offspring. As a farm kid I learned it too. I'm sure most here were taught the same thing in school. There are laws against marriage between close relatives for the same reason. If there's some recent evidence that disproves what we've all been taught, I'd like to see it.

all I have to say to you, is learn how to post a bit more rationally, you make no sense.

I think the strong feelings about it that most people seem to have stem from early age programming - essentially the same as religious programming.

You, on the other hand, seem to display all the typical characteristics of a classic troll.
You make outrageous posts, then dont ever come back to reply to the rebuttals... no cojones, no glory.
I suspect you have no cojones.

Much as it would be fun to take you on at your level, there is something called the Terms of Service here that gives me a moment of pause.

Clearly, my ignoring your trolling and now stalking has been ineffective at conveying my lack of interest in you, so to my ignore list you go.

I suspect that you wouldn't recognize a set of cojones if you tripped over them.

Incest?

Hey, ya know why NOT? If homosexuals can get married serve openly and we have tranny-bisexuals and all that runnin' round doing what-ever to each other in public....why NOT incest. I mean, if the kid's good with it what the heck. The only way to be truly tolerant is to have no limits on anything.

Right?

I guess if incest were natural in the animal world you'd have a case for it...

either way I don't care what grown un-related adults do with each other but incest should be out of bounds.
