    Default Spinoff: Dating YOUR OWN Dad

    http://nymag.com/scienceofus/2015/01...-your-dad.html

    Not a joke!

    "So can you remember what it was like the moment you and your dad were reunited? Was there an instant attraction?
    It was so weird and confusing. I was seeing my dad for the first time in forever but it was also like, He’s so good-looking! And then I was like, What the hell are you thinking? What is wrong with you? I saw him as my dad but then also part of me was like, I’m meeting this guy who I have been talking to over the internet and really connecting with and I find him attractive."

    Discuss.
    A helmet saved my life.

    2015 goal: learn to ride like TheHorseProblem, er, a barn rat!

    Oh, god. NY Mag. They are full of ridiculous stories like that. As I recall, I think they also had one about a guy who was married to a human female but bought a mare so he could "date" her. I question how true any of their stories are. Entertaining but...I don't know.

    But that article. Ewwww. And they're getting married?!? But that girl has all kinds of mental problems, based on how she answered the questions.

    Well, that was interesting. I find it surprising the girl that was interviewed insists its a normal, healthy relationship when its pretty clear that she has quite a few issues (depression, low self esteem, etc etc).

    Do you want the government to legislate who can get married or not?

    I believe they or he is in NJ, where it is legal.

    There is no good argument, on this planet, for why a parent should marry their child.

    End of story.

    It's located somewhere far away from being sexual with your own child. That people are OK with this is....disturbing. To say the least.

    WTF did I just read?

    In the age of tolerance and acceptance I find that there are some things I am unable to accept. This would be one. The girl, who OBVIOUSLY didn't have an ideal upbringing and has a lot of issues, was 15 or 16 when this started...

    Dad needs to be in jail.

    I need to drink until I forget that entire article.

    You know, I didn't read the link, but there is a reason it is at least unethical, if not illegal, first for an adult to influence a minor and definitely for a figure of power, Monica Lewinsky anyone, or so many teachers or priests or the boss, or you name it, someone with power over others, to have a sexual relationship with them.
    Parents included.

    That is because in the situations where they are not two equals, one can be legally considered a victim.

    I did not say I liked it, you assumed that, but it is an expected consequence of marriage equality. Note the name of the blog referenced "Marriage Equality" and it was brought up in many of the anti-gay marriage legislation arguments (along with polygamy, marrying your dog etc).

    So, expected, and a conundrum.

    And Bluey's reference to minor/adult and power: in some countries, the age of consent is 12 (Belgium or Holland, dont remember which).
    So what happened there to that principle of minor's and protecting them.

    Not really, see my post above for the explanation.

    The law specifies "between (two) consenting adults".

    No consent when one is dominating the other past reasonable consent, or a minor, or an animal, that can't consent.

    Polygamy, yes, the definition fits there, when that truly falls into "consenting adults".
    Most cults are not acceptable as "consenting", I would say, cults being brain washed subjects to a power figure.

    The important point is that individual freedoms, when also working with the individual freedoms of others, there is no victim there, are just that, up to the individuals, if anyone else likes it or not.

    The title of this thread needs to come with a gallon of brain bleach. No way I am reading the article!

    Bluey, Holland or Belgium, has an age of consent of 12. So they don't have that protection due to undue influence on a minor.

    Regarding current laws:
    "the woman says they plan to move to New Jersey where adult incest is legal."

    So, a lot of people argued that the government had no right to determine who should get married. This is a consequence.

    Guess that is their choice, I think in the US is 18.

    Age of consent would be moot question between parent and child, parents, just like a boss or teacher, are power figures to their inferior subjects under their guidance.

    The trick is in the details, is it.

    Yes.
    But the argument for legalizing gay marriage was the government shouldn't be deciding who should get married.
    Hence my original question: Are you for the government deciding who should get married or not?

    I'll be damned.

    In THIS thread http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...ghlight=incest

    it seemed the general consensus was "don't be so judgemental; nothing really wrong with incest - mom, dad, sibs, whatever, it's all good if that's your thing" - no, don't like gov't intervention on many things but am for SURE not a supporter of "Anything goes!" in this realm!

    It's like the Jeff Foxworth riff where he comments that when he and his wife wer at the hospital for the birthof one of their children, there was a sign in her birthing room that said, "No sex <two hours, some period of time> before delivery". both he and his wife wondered exactly who.....
