What’s the BFD about incest? “Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?” [Darleen Click]
I was planning a whole opening paragraph outlining how arguments about same-sex marriage eventually dissolve into pro-SSM advocates sneering that those opposed to, or even question the wisdom of, the radical redefinition of marriage are arguing in bad faith if the subjects of polygamy or incest come up.
Writer-director Nick Cassavetes unveiled his new movie “Yellow” at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend and found himself defending the main character’s incestuous love affair with her own brother. [...]
“I have no experience with incest,” he told TheWrap in an interview on Sunday. “We started thinking about that. We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want.
“Who gives a shit if people judge you?” he continued. “I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”
In addition, we also have Gawker running an article calling pedophilia an orientation worthy of sympathy.
The whole of history of humans organizing in groups and moving into civilization is the story of humans overcoming their natures and baser instincts.
Now we witness a whole political ideology dedicated to tearing that down, to telling people to indulge their nature, to do whatever “feels good,” feel no shame and demonize anyone who should hold a different view.
Told you so.
