"disliking #incest is exactly like disliking homosexuality"
are you fucking kidding me
they’re not identical scenarios, but both cases involve people being disgusted by consenting adults performing sexual acts because of a lack of exposure to the situation, and hiding their disgust behind moral arguments that only apply in a finite number of cases, so I definitely see the correlation.
“hiding their disgust behind moral arguments that only apply in a finite number of cases, “
Excuse you, do not spread this kind of damaging misinformation.
Incest has been cited as the most common form of child abuse. Studies conclude that 43 percent (43%) of the children who are abused are abused by family members, 33 percent (33%) are abused by someone they know, and the remaining 24 percent (24%) are sexually abused by strangers (Hayes, 1990). Other research indicates that over 10 million Americans have been victims of incest.
One of the nation’s leading researchers on child sexual abuse, David Finkelhor, estimates that 1,000,000 Americans are victims of father-daughter incest, and 16,000 new cases occur annually (Finkelhor, 1983). However, Finkelhor’s statistics may be significantly low because they are based primarily on accounts of white, middle-class women and may not adequately represent low-income and minority women (Matsakis, 1991).
However, estimates of male incest may be low due to the fact that, while girls are extremely hesitant to disclose incest, boys are probably even more so. Boys may be especially reluctant to admit incest victimization because of the sexual details and their fear it may indicate to others a weakness and/or homosexuality, which can result in negative social stigmatization (Vanderbilt, 1992).
Sibling incest is poorly understood, yet it appears to be quite common and occurs more often than parent-child incest (Finkelhor 1979 1980; Goldman & Goldman 1988a). The duration and seriousness of behaviours of sibling incest have been found to be more extensive than other adolescent sex offences (O’Brien 1991).
O’Brien (1991) found that the sibling incest offender makes the victim feel responsible for what is taking place:5
Clinical experience reveals that victims of sibling incest are likely to be implicated gradually as co-conspirators by the abusive sibling so they will share in the responsibility, blame, and punishment for the behaviour if the “secret” is disclosed. Once established, this dynamic makes it difficult for victims to resist offenders’ more intrusive sexual demands
Being sexually victimised by a ‘peer’ may influence the entrapment in sibling incest.
from here: http://www.adfvc.unsw.edu.au/conference%20papers/seek-soln/owennicki.pdf which also has brief overviews of multiple people who participated in incestual relationships with siblings and how it affected them.
consensual incest between siblings is EXTREMELY FUCKING RARE. Like the article above says, many cases where someone says that prolonged sexual interaction with a sibling was consensual, are usually implicated as going along with it by the older sibling, or assumed to have gone along with it by others, or being afraid to reveal themselves as a victim of such a circumstance, or something. The majority of cases of consensual sibling incest is between siblings not raised together who met later in life and these are so, so, so less common circumstances than a child trapped in a home with a sexual predator as part of their family.
Whereas the large majority of reported incidents of sibling incest is siblings raised together where one was victimized by another due to power imbalances present in their relationship. (And it doesn’t matter if they’re only one or two years apart, or even twins, all sibling relationships have power hierarchies whether we choose to realize it or not, and these can be easily exploited by predatory siblings.)
And a lot of times (not always) incest perpetuated by a sibling onto another is sibling is started by the predatory sibling being abused by someone else. It’s a cycle of abuse.
Stop trying to cover up the inherent danger and damage and wrongness of the most common form of incest, that is: sexual abuse, by shifting focus onto the rare cases of consensual adulthood incest.
Do not try to say I have a lack of exposure to this issue either because you make assumptions about a person’s lived experiences when they disagree with you. I have more exposure to this issue than I ever want.
