Is this really true? I guess different states define incest differently.

"Sexual relations between persons who are so closely related that their marriage is illegal or forbidden by custom."

First cousins should be off limits. I wouldn't marry a second or third cousin.
Family trees need branches.

The British Monarchy are all cousins. 2nd and 3rd cousins.

That explains all the horse faces and big ears.

You are confusing marriage with sex. The two are not necessarily related.

Not all first cousins are close, some don't even know each other, and if you meet as adults whats the fuss? I personally was close to mine while growing up so no way...but I did get a little frisky with one once.

that's ok. I doubt first cousins can marry if they're the same gender.
