  • Some Consensual Incest Involves Same-Gender Partners

    Incest should not be confused with beastiality (sex with other species). Incest can mean two things: 1) assault/molestation by a close relative and 2) consensual sex with a close relative. It is the second one we are talking about.

    Gay marriage is a marriage involving gay people. Whether someone is gay or heterosexual or another sexual orientation is obviously a different factor than whether or not any two or more people are closely related or not. However, both gay lovers and consanguineous lovers have face prejudice and discriminatory laws. Also, I personally know some same-gender relationships that are consanguineous, so in those relationships, there is overlap between the factors.

    Rather than picking and choosing, based on convoluted criteria, which set of adults are going to get which of their rights, why not support the rights of ALL adults to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any and all consenting adults?

  • Whats the difference?

    I don't feel like there is any difference between the two if 2 adults consent why does it matter? Any reason why gay marriage should be legal can be said for incest too. Society just looks to gay people as okay but why is It okay to be disgusted with 2 people that are related to be together but not okay if its 2 men? I feel it should be all in or all out either people should have freedom to marry who they want and have equality for consenting adults or rule out both because some people find it disgusting it shouldn't be different for gays just because lately society has been focusing on it the only reason incest is seen the same way gays were seen in the past is because there isn't a lot of people defending incest like there is for gays in this day and age

  • What is the criteria of marriage?

    Every time I ask people what is the criteria to be able to marry, they respond with "2 consenting adults". Then I respond with "According to your criteria, you have 2 adults, a brother and sister, agreeing to get married to each other" They respond with 3 objections which can be used against same-sex marriage. They say " that is weird" or "that is nasty" or that is morally unaccepted and they shouldn't do that" These 3 can be used against same-sex marriage. One objection that is unique is the retardation of the child. Then I respond with contraception. One Atheist said "wow I never thought about that." I made it simple for him and I made it simple for all of you.

  • Neither one should be considered more disgusting than the other.

    I personally find both types of marriage to be somewhat disgusting, but only my personal preference. Who are we to judge the affection that two people feel for each other? One is Christian and one is Jewish. One is a man and one is also a man. One is white and one is black. One is a brother and one is a sister. As long as contraception is used, what harm is done? Really? It's morally wrong? I look away when I see two men kissing, not because I think it's wrong, but because it looks gross to me, but they can do whatever they want regarding that because it's their right to have that choice. The same should apply to incest. Either legalize both gay marriage and incest or don't legalize either one.

  • Incest is Worse

    Gay marriage is not incest because you can't marry your child. If anything, incest is far worse than gay marriage because a relative has sexual relations with another relative which is not just morally wrong, it is disgusting. Gay marriage is about two people of the same sex who fall in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together, not about a lusty relationship between two close relatives.

  • Gay Marriage Far From incest

    Nobody should compare gay marriage to incest because they're two separate things. For starters, gay marriage is a perfectly normal thing that is necessary for equality. Incest is an immoral crime that usually involves some kind of physical and mental abuse. Therefore, a person that compares the two is really just a bigoted individual.

  • You homosexuals are the biggest hypocritical bigots.

    Incest is totally normal. It is just like a typical relationship, except that the boy and the girl happen to be closely related. Big deal. We are all related. Some more closely than others. Homosexuality and bestiality, on the other hand, couldn't be more unnatural. THAT should be illegal. And anyone who disagrees clearly is insane.

  • Gay marriage cannot be compared to incest.

    Gay marriage is fundamentally different from incest and the two actions should not be compared. Incest is a crime against nature because it involves sexually abusing a member of your own family. Gay marriage is a consensual agreement between two adults who love each other. People should not compare these two actions.

  • No, of course yet.

    Those who compare gay marriage to incest or anything else like that are ignorant and misguided. We are talking about two adult human beings who presumably love each other and want to make their union legal as would any other two adult people. Incest is a whole other story in itself.

  • Gay marriage should not be compared to incest.

    Gay marriage should not be compared to incest. This is just wrong and should not be allowed. Incest is when you have sexual relations with someone in the family. Most gays do not practice incest and usually as disgusted by the topic as straight people. It is wrong to compare the two.

  • Hell to the NO!!

    You should never compare same sex relationships to incest! Incest is having sexual relations with an animal. Animals have way of consenting to the sex acts being performed on them. In a same sex relationship there is two consenting adults that are able to give that consent legally. Just like in a heterosexual relationship both the man and women can consent because they are legally able too.

  • A stupid comparison

    The reason behind why we approve homosexual as an sub-type of sexual orientation because the relationship is not harmful on either both side of partner .While you might argue that incest can be consensual when it's between adult,yes,but it's still not appropriate to compare with those LGBT groups.Incest isn't interchangeable to any other kind of relationship where you could compare with,because incest has an negative impact on children.Children born with incestous union are 5 times more likely than average population to suffer from physical malformation,intellectual disability,heart disease,and other health problem.I recommend those on the yes side to rethink and revise of what you are posing t your opinion.JUST THINK LOGIC GUYS,DON'T BE A FOOL.INCEST IS OBVIOUSLY WRONG BY DEFINITION ITSELF AND THERE SHOULDN'T BE ANY QUESTION ABOUT IT.

  • Why should this be even a debate ?

    Incest bring no benefit to society and by saying it should be accepted the same matter as homosexual relationship is plain stupid.If incest relationship is legalized then perhaps there would be increasing in high rate of infant and child mortality rate leading death to premature baby's. Our human population would be infected with birth defect which is detrimental to all of us.While homosexual is an sexual orientation between consenting adult and does not cause harm to anyone. Gays cannot reproduce and there is not an abuse toward children. While incest is a form of child abuse and it's a sickness not an sexual orientation !!

If you're for it, you should compare it to straight marriage. If you're against it, you should compare it to incest. Hope that helps!
