The professor of political science was arrested for having an apparently “consensual” relationship with his 24 year old daughter. What absolutely blows my mind is that the professor, who blogged at the Huff Po, is being vociferously defended by the HuffPo readers. To whit:
This is exactly what conservatives tried to warn people about when gay marriage was being discussed during Lawrence v. Texas. I’ve never been completely annoyed by gay marriage, but I did worry over things like this: that true marriage, one man and one woman, would be weakened by the inclusion of gays because it would spread to poly and incest. While this professor may not have married his daughter, you can see based on 99% of the HuffPo readers that for the left, even incest is just a “lifestyle choice” and if you don’t accept it, you’re a bigoted racist sexist homophobe.
Incest is a horrible crime. The fact that the girl was 24 matters not one iota. And incidentally while all the people on Huff Po were screaming that she’s legal and what happened between father and daughter was nobody’s business, I kept thinking that a 24 year old who has sex with her dad is an adult, but any 26 year old who needs to stay on their parent’s insurance is a child, too immature to even get a job that offers insurance.
The age of the woman matters not, but I have a difficult time believing that he waited until she was of age before having sex with her. He’s a horrible person, and the people who are defending him are horrible people. Really, we have to stop being so polite. We must stop being afraid to call people on their craziness lest they feel “judged.” I can be handle being judged by incest defenders because I know that I am right and I know that I am a better person than they are.
What is next?
