BabyCenter Discussion on Consanguinamory

Full Marriage Equality found a thread on BabyCenter:
[The original poster] starts it by talking about a father-daughter couple.
I know a couple who are living together, and I tried not to judge but this just makes me sick. They are father and daughter living together and have two kids. How could this happen? how can they explain their kids that their dad is their dad and Grandpa?? I know its not of my business which is why I never and would never said anything to them. (they are family of my ex sister in-law) but they still go visit my brother. Not to start a debate but I am curious what do you ladies think about Incest? is it even legal?
The comments made me choke up in horror. Somehow, the unsympathetic hate that comes out in response to things like this still disturbs me. I felt a pang of fear that the person posting would be encouraged by the responses to actually report that couple to the police. I wonder how many consanguinamorous couples remain out of jail only because their "friends" and "family" don't know that it's against the law? That makes me so goddamn angry! It's so overwhelming... Why can't people just leave them the hell alone?!
"It is very much illegal.
"That is gut wrenching. They should both be jailed. How old are these two and how old are the kids?"
"You should be judging. wtf that's repulsive. And yes illegal they should both be in jail, the children deserve to be with parents who are mentally stable."
"Report them please"
"This is illegal, I'm pretty sure everywhere. Genetically speaking, this is dangerous for their children. If you know if they are on antn social services... Please contact those agencies, whether it's wic or welfare or whatever. They can launch an investigation and pursuit things and get the kids out of that messed up situation.
"Is there a chance there is a loophole? Maybe they aren't biologically related? This makes my stomach churn."
So I went deeper into the comments, and this thread is a mess.
It sounds like a case of GSA:
[His ex-wife] lives in another country. They were not together anymore I think. He was living here and then her daughter decided to move here with her dad. They story is..they did not spend to much time together as father and daughter. They have years that they did not see each other.. so when she came here she move in with her dad and brother. They starting acting weird.. like sleeping In the same room and things like that.. when they got confronted they denied but a few months later she got pregnant.. thats when they admitted they were sleeping together. Since she did not have a boyfriend or others guys around who else could it be?? So they end up admitting everything.. move out to live on their own..
They're mixing up consensual and non-consensual relationships, and also trashing step-relative romance:
I'm with you. I feel bad for the daughter too. Somewhere she was "taught" that this is normal. Oooor she has some type of mental condition seeing how supposedly they reconnect years later. Definitely feel bad for her and the kids. I do think that some type of child molestation happened with the daughter when she was younger.
That's nasty and illegal. I know a guy who went to prison for marrying his gf who he had been with for years. Well before they got married her mom and his dad got together and got married. Cops said it was incest and he got arrested. So those people should definitely be in jail!
The OP indicates that some guy used his knowledge of the relationship to blackmail his girlfriend into staying with him:
The other problem is that the guy that my exsister in law is dating.. He knows about this and when my [sister-in-law] tried to leave him.. this guy started black mailing her. Saying if she leaves him.. he will go to the police and report them. She is scared because its her family (uncle & cousin) . So she went back with him.. we all know all this because her mom and my mom are friends. So they talk and hang out sometimes.
The ignorance is astounding:
Where are you people living that you actually know of incest in real life??? It's unheard of here in NY, obviously it must happen, but only in abusive situations behind closed doors.
[...] Not many [...] adults would meet their father for the first time in a long time and say "hey dad let's have sex, let's have babies!"
Actually, many would. As much as 50% of reunited family experience sexual feelings to some degree for at least one family member. Because growing up with someone or raising them is the only way for you to develop a natural inhibition against any possible attraction, GSA is the one type of "incestuous attraction" that literally every human being is capable of feeling. People who've never experienced it love to be all "holier than thou", but every case of GSA has taken those involved by surprise. They never thought it was possible, just like these commenters, but it was possible.
