Culture Wars/Current Controversies

‘Consensual incest’ should be decriminalized, advocates say

I always knew this would happen. I think we are moving toward a time when there will be more restrictions on traditional civil liberties, e.g. excluding “hate speech” from the 1st Amendment protections, restricting religious liberty in the name of LGBTQ rights, chipping away at the 2A, rolling back due process in the name of “we believe women,” etc. At the same time, more and more previously taboo or illegal things will be accepted or normalized like drugs, prostitution, BSDM, incest, polygamy. pissing in public, etc. As the cultural left increasingly gets the upper hand, they will become increasingly authoritarian. That will trigger a backlash from the right-wing and other social conservatives. As the wider society fragments into warring tribes and social classes, the capitalist Center will increase repression in order to maintain power. It should be interesting. I’m not making anyone’s side. Just saying.

Consensual incest advocates are rooting for an anonymous New York parent who wants to marry their own adult child.

Australian Richard Morris, who is pushing to change incest laws in about 60 countries, said he supports the legal push in Manhattan Federal Court and that such behavior between consenting adults “should not be criminalized.”

He and other advocates have launched about 130 petitions, mostly on change.org, seeking to change incest laws around the world. Most have received little support.

“We haven’t moved any mountains yet,” he told The Post.

Morris was inspired to fight for those in consenting incestual relationships, he said, after learning about a Scottish case in which a long-separated father and daughter were reunited, started an affair and were then criminally convicted.

Fighting for true “marriage equality” is “the right thing to do, isn’t it?” Morris said.

“It seems to be as unjust as the law that used to imprison gay people, and the law that used to stop people of different races marrying,” he added.
