“There are so many people outside of your family. Go marry/have sex with one of them, instead. It creates friendships between families.” There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. I have many friends outside of my family to whom…
Reblogging for my new followers.
Thank you so much for writing this, fullmarriageequality!! Now I had something to refer someone to… someone on YouTube. You said a lot of the things I wanted to say as well, so I left a link for this person to follow, along with this message on their YouTube page:
I saw a video you made awhile ago where you were saying that people who are related shouldn’t be romantically involved with each other because they are harming the ‘genetic health’ of the human race. I left a comment but not sure it showed up… I used to admire you a lot but after you said that I was very disappointed in who I thought you were… Maybe you can take a look at this link, because it might show you this topic from an angle you didn’t consider before: http://fullmarriageequality.tumblr.com/post/82327461255/not-a-good-reason-to-deny-consanguineous-love-19 I’m part of the lgbtq community too, but I don’t draw lines for other people’s love lives because I wouldn’t want them doing that to me. Just because you don’t understand consanguinamorous relationships doesn’t mean it’s ok to dictate how they should live and love. As for making children, that’s their business. No one can control whole generations of humanity’s ‘health’ and that has nothing to do with their freedom to LOVE. As long as they get tests done to weigh the risks before having their own kids and raise them the best they can, that’s all they are responsible for. When people fall in love they don’t think about the ‘genetic health’ of the whole human race.. and they shouldn’t have to. they are only responsible for making sure their own family is healthy if they decide to have one. And after that, their children are responsible for the families they make, etc.
