"So theres these kids that I see quite a bit, not my friends, they harass me and my girlfriend and throw stuff at us when they see us together, and more then once I've had to redetail their faces (and one probably won't have kids) because they tried hurting her, but they seem bent on making our lives miserable =/
The only reason that they're doing this is because my girlfriend is my younger sister. Anyone have advice on what to do? I'm truly afraid that I'll go too far one day and she'll have to visit me in prison."
Now, what are your thoughts regarding this? Disgust? Anger? Frustration? Shock? Understandable.
Now, lets get to the bottom of why I have brought this to your attention: What is your position on Same Sex Marriage? I'm going to assume that you're for it as very few people I know are actually against it.
Forgive me from straying from the opening to this article, but it will make sense when all of the pieces come together.
Anyway, why are you for it? I'm going to predict your answer: "They are in love and who are we to restrict their love?"
A strong argument, indeed. But here's where you become a hypocrite: Why is it alright for homosexual couples, but not for incestuous couples? There, really, is no difference between the two. If you have that outlook for one, then why not the other?
Sure, you could argue "Incestuous couples produce mongoloid children!" A very true statement as the mixture of similar genes in an offspring can cause undue complications. But consider this: Homosexual couples cannot even produce children.
"But Ripplemagne! They can adopt!"
Yes, and so can incestuous couples. Just because they're male and female doesn't mean that they have to have a child by their own loins. So, if we can justify one matter with the concept of adoption, why not the other?
So, how do you justify this inconsistency? I doubt you can as people much higher on the intellectual caste have tried and failed.
Which makes you, what? A hypocrite. You likely scorn individuals who believe homosexuality is a disgusting practice, but in another time and place, you act identical.
Now, I have a theory that I have devised over the passed few days and it seems to be be untouchable. For those of you who are shaking your head, saying "conspiracy theorist!", it's not quite that simple. I'm not saying that the following absolutely will occur. Rather that it seems very plausible and given the facts, seems to be rather logical.
We are in the Civil Rights Era. This began with the Civil Rights Movement where minority groups were given freedom and considered equal members of society. From here, it delved into the Women's Suffragist Movement, which gave women the right to vote among other alienable rights. We are at a point where homosexual marriage is the topic of scrutiny, which will, inevitably, allow for such to occur.
Here's where it gets interesting for it may not be in our lifetime or our children's lifetimes, but it's very plausible: The Incestuous Couple Movement. I predict that this will be the next topic of scrutiny which will receive the same attention that the case society is attesting for and debating. This may very well lead into a movement for bestiality far off into the future, but that's thinking too far ahead.
If you really think about it, it's really not as unfathomable as it sounds. During the Women's Suffragist Movement and the Civil Rights Movement, people would have thought "There's no way there'd ever be a movement for homosexuality." Just like people, now, would say "There's no way there'd ever be a movement for incest."
And it would be an identical argument: "Who is the government to stop someone from loving someone?" At that point, they can even use the arguments brought forth by the current movement to propel their ideologies.
If you can, refute my logic and my theory. I would love to hear your view on the matter.
