that entire discussion about cousins annoys me so much! i mean, the whole discussion on incest tends to lack nuance, but i’m particularly annoyed by people condemning cousin incest because my parents are first cousins and they’ve been happily married for almost 25 years.

I don’t think they realize how they are making people feel. There are first cousins, even in the U.S., who are happily married, but especially there are many around the world, in cultures where first cousin marriage isn’t frowned upon at all.

I get so frustrated. People are so uneducated about this, and then popular culture just keeps making it worse.

Don’t let it get to you, Anon! That’s wonderful about your parents.
