Hi
I'm new here, and my non-perfect English, I wanted to understand the meaning of the terms used here such as:
GSA
Allies


I don't understand what topic or figure is intended

Hi, Dag,

GSA is Genetic Sexual Attraction, sometimes known as reunion GSA. It occurs in family members who did not grow up together, often because of adoption. People in reunion GSA often feel an immediate and very strong sexual attraction, sometimes one-sided, sometimes two-sided. GSA plays major havoc if the affected people have existing relationships.

Allies are people who are usually not involved or have never been involved in consang relationships, but want to help the community or individuals. Allies are often, but not always, unrequited consangs themselves.

There is a dictionary around here someplace...

Stay safe,
UN

Haven’t reviewed my glossary in a while. https://marriage-equality.blogspot.com/p/glossary.html

Thanks, Keith. I learned a new one today — GSRD.

Stay safe,

Just a question for Fullmarriageequality. I looked at the glossary ( which is pretty good) but noticed the definitions of consanguinamourous and and consanguineous:

Consanguinamorous: In or oriented to a romantic, dating, courting, or marital relationship or engaging in sex with a close relative. Consanguineous sex can be expected between those who practice consanguinamory.

Consanguineous: Between close (blood) relatives, as in “consanguineous love.” I prefer this to “incestuous,” which has been stigmatized and often associated in the media with child abuse and rape.

These definitions do not mention anything about the types of relationships being specifically between only consenting adults. Is it possible to correct what appears to me to be an oversight? (I know that you explain elsewhere that everything on your site is about consenting adults only, but if you definitions were taken out of context they could be misinterpreted). Best.

As long as we”re suggesting corrections to the glossary, shouldn”t the definition for “consanguinamorous” exclude pedophilia? Example of how it might be changed:

Consanguinamorous: In or oriented to a romantic, dating, courting, or marital relationship or engaging in sex with a close adult relative. Consanguineous sex can be expected between those who practice consanguinamory.

Italics mine.

Stay safe,
UN
