Gay And Incestuous’s Same Thing

Monday, October 1, 2012 13:32
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Gay Marriage And Incest Are Pretty Much The Same Thing, Right?

Director Nick Cassavetes has an interesting take on love.

His new film, Yellow, is about the “love affair” between a sister and brother, and as he told The Warp, “love who you want.”

Come on, guys, incest isn’t exactly that big of a deal. It’s love, and love is never wrong as long as you follow your heart, right? Or at least this is what one is to gather from Cassevetes’ pretty earnest statement. Love and let love, even if it’s your brother.

The appalling factor of incest and the biological ramifications on any offspring aside, Cassavetes went on to pretty much compare incest to gay marriage:

“Who gives a shit if people judge you? 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.”


While the point he’s trying to make is clear, he goes about it all wrong. For starters incest is, by most civilized people, considered a vile union between two relatives. It’s not only frowned upon, but is illegal in most places. (I could totally make an Appalachia joke here, but I won’t.)

    In today’s society, he’s absolutely right. Our problem is we keep fudging back and forth on these issues when, if you are going to be completely consistent, there’s no difference between gay marriage and bestiality. If one is permissible, then the other is also. Sex is sex, sex out side of heterosexual relation is all the same at that point. The argument is lost on all else if it is lost on the traditional/moral standing.

    So go ahead, have sex with whatever you want. Society has already deemed it “OK”.

      Is sex with animals OK by modern freedom?

      The basis of all this is whether having sex in excrement is OK.

      Don’t forget the basic sense of hygene.

    Way to miss the point, Shambhala. You’ve been speaking French too long if you can’t understand basic nuances in headlines.
