Similar arguments defending them can be made, BDBoop. I am not saying incest is equal with homosexuality.
There is no need to be so uptight.
I don't care what consenting adults do. If they want to risk having abnormal children that is their problem. But if they have a shred of decency and are of average intelligence they will take the necessary precautions not to get pregnant. Like women in their 40s also have to take similar precautions due to the increased risk of fetal abnormality. Same thing.

Again, that's your perception. Stop saying I did things that I didn't. I never equated homosexuality to incest. I did say they can be defended in the same manner. If you feel so strongly, right up a report about your perceptions and I'll respond in kind.
Again, you're focusing on the messenger, not the message. If you posted a thread about an issue I am sure you would not appreciate someone aggressively trying to make you look bad based on his/her perception, now would you?
There are more states that allow you to marry your 1st cousin than allow to marry someone of the same sex. Not too wise to go the incest route without knowing that much.
As far as it being harmless, I do believe hemophilia is pretty harmful.
I am against incest for the harm to offspring issue.
But I am also against incest mainly because in the vast majority of cases the relationship became more than a familial relationship before at least one of the two were old enough to legally consent or know what was going on. Very rarely are you going to find a case where a brother and sister, separated at birth, find each other and fall in love. It happens, sure, but it isn't the vast majority of incest cases.
Now, I would say that certain cases of incest should be able to petition for marriage rights, such as a step-brother and step-sister who didn't grow up together and are around the same age or an adult stepchild who wasn't raised by a stepparent and possibly even the rare case of the brother and sister who weren't raised together (although they should at least have to be provided genetic counseling). And I have no problem with first cousins and farther out relations marrying.
