    I can't see why they'd include that. I thought the purpose of criminalizing incest was so the gene pool doesn't get weakened. A bigger argument is that my stepmom as a kid was a complete bitch-dog.

    Because it isn't all about the gene pool. Some of the reasons for the laws against incest are more about immorality of sleeping with close relatives, even just by legality, rather than the affect to children. I believe there is at least one state, maybe a few more, that include inlaws too.

    Personally, I think it should depend on when the step-/adopted siblings came into the family. This makes a difference on the undue influence that can reasonably assumed in the relationship.

    Bah, hell with the immorality.

    All I know is that if I was a kid and some smoking hot chick came to live with me as a "step-sister" I'd totally be hiding in her closet and planting cameras in the shower.

    Whatever it makes me, it makes me.

    But how would you feel if it was the other way around? What if it was a 9 y/o girl who got a 15 y/o stepbrother who worked his way into her life as an intimate friend? What if the brother is only 13? At what age difference is that influence not an issue? There really wouldn't need to be actual sexual contact til consenting age is reached for the younger party, but that doesn't mean that the influence is not harmful.

    Most people have two sets of standards between girls and boys, especially when it comes to intimate encounters. But, then again, even studies are starting to show that the most common form of incest is older brother/younger sibling.

    Well, if your age doesn't end in "teen" it's just creepy. Maybe I'm weird, but at 12 I was more interested in baseball than girls. Also, if the age difference is too extreme, it's bad. And, yes, there is a double standard. If a 13 year old boy was peeking on his 16 year old stepsister, I'd turn a blind eye more than a 16 year old boy and 13 year old stepsister.

    Of course, if it's not forced to too coerced, whatever happens happens. In the words of Red Foreman on That 70s Show, "Don't be comin 'round here with no 'flipper' grandchildren".
