    "Would you tell the world you slept with your dad?"

    Maybe in a suicide note.

    Seriously.
    Well, damn her for surviving. Where does she get off drawing breath?

    I'm not talking about her. The question is "Would I"

    It's hard to know what you'd do.
    It's my understanding that most incest victims survive.
    It's easy to say you'd kill yourself, but not so easy to follow through with that.

    "Why would you sleep with your dad" implies she had a choice, when according to her it was rape.
    Why she would continue to sleep with her dad is a valid question, but it's obvious she was and continues to be a profoundly emotionally crippled individual and that her father was a powerful figure, not just in her life but in the lives of most of those around him.
    Absolutely. If she's telling the truth then there's no reason to judge her harshly. She obvioulsy has serious issues.

    I'm not saying I would kill myself. I'm saying that the only way I would "tell the world" is if I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be around for the reaction and discussion. A professional therapist in confidence? Maybe, hell probably. But the world? Not likely. I'd rather take it to my grave.

    It must have really hurt a lot of people. She should have done something other than blab this story. It's not like he can defend himself. Is she selling a book?

    I think she's lying. even if she is telling the truth she is only making this public to make money off it, which is gruesome. so I pretty much don't care either way.

    Re: Would you tell the world you slept with your dad.

    I don't know if she's telling the truth, but I support her courage in speaking out about this.

    To answer the question posted in the thread title - that depends. I believe that parents should have far-reaching rights over their children, even including culturally subjective things like female circumcision, incest, religious brainwashing, and so on, as long as they don't interfere with the child's natural rights to life and to emancipation. That means the children will ultimately be able to decide for themselves if they have been violated and whether to expose their parents, in which case they'd obviously face near-universal ostracism.

    Trusting government intervention to stamp out incest is immoral, ineffective, and ultimately very destructive. Countless children are still being abused by their parents and other adults, including in the government-run "Child Protection Services", where all the smart pedophiles apply for their day job. Countless adults are prosecuted for alleged child abuse without the consent of the victim (and/or his/her parents/guardians) for that prosecution to take place (i.e. victimless crime). Countless adults decide not to have children because of the overbearing role the government is starting to play in family life, which can only lead to a demographic and economic collapse, as is already starting to play out in some of the more socialist European countries. Etc. The Anarcho-Capitalist approach that recognizes the rights of the parents, the child's right to emancipation, and relies on social pressure (i.e. ostracism) would be far more humane and far more effective.
