I find it funny how people have forgotten about the past, even though it was less than 100 years ago.
Yes incest is real, it happens everywhere, but it was and sometimes still is more likely in rich families. These were families who refused to share their wealth with other people, and so cousins, even first cousins would marry each other to keep the money within the family. And of course when there were no suitable cousins, brothers and sisters would marry.
As already said, a lot of royal families are like this, this is why there is a lot of speculation that the current British royal family arent the true royals. This royal family had no history of anemia until suddenly they did, however when traced to the source it was found that neither parent had any history in either their families, and so the only conclusion was that the female member had been unfaithful and her child was illegitimate.
Now one thing you will always hear is how people condemn islam by saying Muhammed was a paedophile. And yes it's true, based on today's societal views!
However in the UK the law for underage sex was set at 12 years in 1891. in the 16th century it was 10 years. But was the law enforced? Not much, it was mostly ignored.
It wasnt until after the 1900s that the underage sex laws were starting to be enforced properly.
So technically the people going around called muslims paedophiles should also be calling themselves paedophiles as well :P
But this is to show that, obviously, laws are man-made; puberty can start as early at the age as 8 in some kids, 4 years before most. Now we all know hormones can get out of control, but how can you blame these kids, biologically 99% of people become sexually active (by that I mean start puberty), at around 12. Yet here in the UK they cannot have sex legally until they hit 16, though in other countries it's 14 and some it is 12.
Point is is that you cannot stop biology, if a kid becomes sexually curious they will follow it, cos afterall human are animals; a lot of people believe that we are "superior", but we are just animals. And as you know, wild animals will f*** like crazy with whatever at any age.
Humans have just evolved more so to create communities and want to protect others, hence why we set up laws.
Ask yourself, what would you do if there was a nuclear war, and let's say the world population falls to 1 million. The first thing one would do is repopulate, now do you think people would be saying you have to wait until 16 before you can have sex and so get pregnant? No, with all the radiation people would be lucky to live past 30. And so the underage sex law would be ignored, and if there was a government society, it would be reduced to 10, but still ignored if say a 9 year old got pregnant.
Laws change all the time depending on society's views. Today people are disgusted when they hear about incest, but 100 years ago it was pretty common and noone really cared too much about it. Some people think it may actually be healthy for siblings to have sex with each other, but not reproduce with each other.
And then if we bring religions into it, if Adam and Eve were the first and only humans, who did their kids have sex and reproduce with??? The only conclusion to that is that they had sex with their parents and siblings. So if we are all descendants of Adam and Eve we are all related, and so it doesnt matter who you f***, you're f***ing a distant relative any way, and have been continuing that tradition since the beginning of time! :P
Here's another fun fact for ya'll:
You hear a lot of health advice to women that breast milk is the best to give their baby, so why do so many stop so early and go onto formula?
Well of course for some it can be painful, but for quite a few it's the fact that the baby sucking on their nipple can be arousing, so much so that it can bring them to climax, or orgasm for those who dont use the word climax.
So a lot of women feel uncomfortable continuing to breast feed their babies due to this. So would some consider this incest? I mean afterall the mother can get off from her baby feeding, but then the baby has to be fed...
