Some of you will be aware of this story already. It is interesting that it exists at all, and was not censored, as most are. And of course it is thoroughly disgusting and an abomination that this couple were treated so horribly unkindly and unfairly. Am I CIAO enough to do anything about it? How about a series of letters to the editor thanking him or her for bringing this matter to the attention of the public?

Are we to believe that because of her childhood, she can't ever consent to sex?

The defense attorney claimed that three other states had repealed their laws against consensual adult incest.

I know that Rhode Island has no law against it, and New Jersey does not prosecute, but I'm unaware of any other state where the laws have been repealed.

Does anyone know what the third state might be? Perhaps this attorney was mistaken.

I don't know. RI and NJ technically have no laws against it. Ohio has no laws against siblings. It seemed as though Illinois still had laws but wasn't enforcing them except perhaps as "piling on" when someone was prosecuted for an actual crime.

Once again the woman is denied any agency. She is immediately portrayed as the helpless victim who couldn't decide for herself what she wanted

you might want to make a correction in your blog in almost every state in the US the legal drinking age is NOT 18 it is 21 and supplying alcohol to someone under 21 is a crime

18-year-olds can go to war, be sentenced to death, marry 80-year-olds, sign most contracts, appear nude on camera for commercial purposes, operate heavy equipment, vote, etc. Officially, each state sets the drinking age. The federal government withheld interstate highway funds from states unless they raised the drinking age to 21.

I wonder what their stories are, like really are. We only see a glimpse from here.
