    it's nice that they are doing interviews and publicizing it so that the unfortunate offspring can get regular a$$kickings once it starts school

    :eek: :yikes: :scream: :wideeyes:

    I don't give a flying fcuk if there's a term for it (Genetic Sexual Attraction), this is just frong on so many levels I don't even know where to start.

    How long will it take before they start pimping themselves out on the likes of The Jerry Springer Show?

    No doubt. Then again, these idiots don't exactly seem the type to think about possible ramifications of their actions.

    It seems to me they're like, "Oh, there's a term for it, so it's okay!" :scream:

    I have a half brother I wasn't raised with, and if I were ever sexually attracted to him, I'd check myself into a hospital for some serious therapy.

    I was more amazed that a 72-year-old grandma was having a baby, until I opened the link to the story and found that they were actually using a surrogate.

    It does seem like they think it is OK because there is a term for it. That doesn't mean it is a healthy thing or that you should be raising babies together. It just means it happens, for whatever reason, and they came up with a name for it. I am shocked he is attracted to a woman in her 70's! That, in and of itself, is not normal.

    I didn't click on the link or read the story, because it sounds horribly sad.

    It is shameful that they don't inform people who are seeking genetic relatives as adults about how common the sexual attraction is. I forget where I saw or heard a program about it, but it incredibly common and people meeting relatives should get some counselling and warning about it prior to meeting.

    I feel like puking.

    Is this really real? I have to wonder if it's all a sick, disgusting joke...

    Makes me think of Tom Lehrer's "Oedipus Rex" song:

    "Yes he loved his mother like no other.
    His daughter was his sister and his son was his brother.
    One thing on which you can depend is,
    He sure knew who a boy's best friend is!"

    Only in this case, his daughter will be his aunt? or his son would be his uncle? and her daughter/son would be her great-grandson/granddaughter? I'm so confused. . .

    Who cares? If it makes them happy, good for them.

    Except for them publicizing the whole thing, which is ridiculous.

    Unfortunately this sort of thing is not unheard off. I heard of a half brother and sister who fell in love and married. The ancient Egyptian royals used to marry only within their own immediate family. The results were not good for the offspring.

    That's one way to look at it and true in a way - children are certainly born into far less loving homes.

    Incest issue aside, I find it really icky that such a young man is attracted to older women. Now, there are plenty of old men and young woman out there, but I think that's icky too. If Donald Trump can wed and bed a 25 year old, then why can't an old woman wed and bed a young man? (Though yeah, I am completely repelled by the idea of a romance with my brother or my father).

    Also, she's 72. I am not sure if it is fair for a woman that age to have a baby. She'll likely die before the child reaches 16 or be way too old to enjoy the child.

    And I feel the same way about a man of 72 having a baby.

    Well, really, they share how much DNA? 1/4? And I didn't read in any detail but is the surrogate also providing the egg? That means the child is in the clear from any negative biological consequences (which in fact are unlikely--no, it's not good to do parent/child or sibling/sibling crosses as a habit but cousin crosses overall are harmless, UNLESS the family is already carrying a negative recessive and they gamble and lose. The acceptable degree of cousin marriages varies wildly by culture, in some cases even being based on whether or not the cousin is a cross-cousin or not, ie whether they're the offspring of a father's brother or a mother's sister, in which case it's not permitted, but if it's a father's sister or a mother's brother it's acceptable.) Grandmother/grandson is fairly removed, genetically speaking. From a biological standpoint, whatever.

    From a SOCIOLOGICAL standpoint, ew ew ew. Especially the age gap.

    This is sick on so many levels it's just mind-boggling. Even if they weren't related at all it would be extremely strange...with the connection it's just ewwww squared.
