A female reader in England writes: There is actually a term for this sort of thing: Genetic sexual attraction (GSA) is a term that describes the phenomenon of sexual attraction between close relatives, such as siblings, first and second cousins or a parent and offspring, who first meet as adults…. The term was popularized in the U.S. in the late 1980s by Barbara Gonyo, the founder of Truth Seekers In Adoption, a Chicago-based support group for adoptees and their new-found relatives…. Genetic sexual attraction is presumed to occur as a consequence of genetic relatives meeting as adults, typically as a consequence of adoption. Although this is a rare consequence of adoptive reunions, the large number of adoptive reunions in recent years means that a larger number of people are affected. If a sexual relationship is entered, it is known as incest…. GSA is rare between people raised together in early childhood due to a reverse sexual imprinting known as the Westermarck effect, which desensitizes them to later close sexual attraction; it is hypothesized that this effect evolved to prevent inbreeding. If the above paragraph from Wikipedia is true, then we are in trouble as families become more and more fluid. There was a documentary about this made by the BBC (who else?) some time ago called “Brothers and Sisters in Love.” Is this phenomenon not actually just another form of self-worship expressed on an unconscious level? And since self-worship is the essence of liberalism, should we be surprised if this sort of thing is going to be more and more prominent?
And we shouldn't attach stigma to the natural drive people have to find a mate similar to themselves. Incest is obviously objectionable for reasons apart from that; such as family, genetic, etc.
