Incest is NEVER best.

Today's society is infested with an anything-goes attitude, especially when it comes to sex. Have sex with men, women, both at the same time, big groups, tie each other up, draw blood, wear bunny suits... anything goes, no matter how weird, and most people will be all right with it as long as its "behind closed doors". Some things, though, are just too weird, just too disgusting, just too wrong. This is one of those cases.

If you're easily offended, or squeamish, I suggest not reading.
A South Australian father and daughter have revealed they are a couple, and have had a child together.

John and Jenny Deaves reunited 30 years after Mr Deaves separated from Jenny's mother. Jenny was 31 and just two weeks after meeting, father and daughter had sex.

"John and I are in this relationship as consenting adults," Mrs Deaves told the Nine Network's 60 Minutes tonight. "We are just asking for a little bit of respect and understanding."

Their nine-month-old daughter Celeste, shown on TV, appears fit and healthy.

Mrs Deaves said soon after reuniting with her father she began to see him as a man first and her father second.

"I was looking at him, sort of going, oh, he's not too bad," she said. "Like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub."

Mrs Deaves brought two children, Samantha and Alex, into the relationship after splitting from her former partner.

Mr Deaves admitted that he "initially" thought having sex with his daughter was wrong. "Emotions take over, as people no doubt realise, there are times during your life where emotions do rule the heart, it rules the head," he said. "I knew it was illegal, of course I knew it was illegal but you know, so what."

Mrs Deaves said the physical relationship with her father was like "a sexual relationship with any other man". For Mr Deaves the sexual relationship was "absolutely fantastic".

A South Australian police media spokesman said "the couple is being monitored".

The most telling quote was the "I knew it was illegal, but you know, so what" comment. It's such a typical attitude today (and dare I say, such an attitude stems directly from liberalism!). If it feels good, do it. If it makes you happy, do it. Who cares if its wrong? Who cares if its selfish, or will hurt other people? If it makes you happy, do it!

And what's even worse is that this father and daughter had a child together. This is the height of selfishness, when people take part in depraved relationships, and then bring a child into the situation as well. Children of incest are at much higher risk for birth defects and deformities, not to mention, how do the parents explain their relationship to each other?

Of course, questions like these don't matter to these people. It makes them happy, so why not?

This is sick. How can they live with themselves? I guess it is easy without morals.

It's entirely possible they were born that way, and who are you to judge? The village will raise the child, anyways.

I'm sure the incest lobby will stage an 'incest pride parade' in an accommodating mecca, and then petition parliament to call off your tired old ethics of monitoring other people's sex life.

(The open minded & tolerance at all costs crowd must maintain logical consistency in their libertine demands, you know.)

Besides, (and more importantly) isn't there a nicotine addict somewhere to persecute for second hand smoke?

Be careful, girl. You'll be called a 'phobe' before all this is over.

~Good post & a good read.

PS: thanks for the link to the manish preggo woman.

Uh, no. It doesn't come from liberalism. It comes from ignorance. When things are a bad idea, they're a bad idea for a reason. If you don't know the reason, it's easy to dismiss.

Don't know why an adjustable rate mortgage is a bad idea? Don't worry about it! Don't know why invading Iraq is a bad idea? Don't worry about it!

Liberals trust science, and the science says this is a really bad idea. Most things that repulse us have some scientific explanation for why it repulses us.

The more you know...

The insanity runs deep:
Incest couple had another child. Six years ago. It died - from congenital heart disease.

When things are a bad idea, they're a bad idea for a reason.

That doesn't stop the libs:

Don't impose your morality on my body.

Don't be closed-minded.

Don't be an old conservative fuddy-duddy.

Don't impose your morality on my body.
Right. With the whole liberty and freedom thing we have in this country, if there's no law against it, you're allowed to do it. Funny thing, freedom. But there are laws about procreating with your children, and for good reason. No one's trying to change that.

Don't be closed-minded.
Yup. If you're not willing to try to understand something, you really have no business criticizing it. It's intellectually dishonest.

Don't be an old conservative fuddy-duddy.
Now you're just being silly. My dad's an old conservative fuddy-duddy, and I love him just fine.

Thanks. After reading that article, my breakfast is trying to swim upstream. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to bleach my brain.

It is wrong and it is disgusting. Imagine how the child will feel when if finds out her father is also her grandfather and it happened willingly.

Don't be so closed-minded, there Baz.

Besides, today we're revulsed at their relationship, tomorrow they're applying for persecuted minority status, and next week they'll be pushing for normalization and repeal of the draconian laws that persecute their relationship.

Isn't that how it works?

I don't know who you think might push for rights for this couple.

My circle of friends is the most liberal group of people you can imagine (e.g., I have a good friend who is an avowed Socialist, another who is a volunteer in Amnesty International, and I volunteer for Obama). No one would back this couple. They would all feel great sympathy for the child, and would whole-heartedly denounce the "adults" involved.

So please don't try to put words in our mouths. It just makes you look foolish.

It is so much easier to live doing whatever makes you feel good instead of what is right.
Explains a lot about so many people you know doesn't it?
