I had two kids in my preschool class whose moms met and became good friends. They compared notes and found out that their kids had the same babydaddy. I always wondered what would have happened if they'd figured it out later in life after the kids had hooked up.

There was a story on here years ago about a married couple who went for genetic counseling when they were unable to conceive. They found out they were brother and sister.

IIRC they stayed married and adopted.

I was going to say, the least believable part of the story is that the couple broke up, and that's really saying something because this article reads like a bad romance novel.

Now, many many years ago
When I was twenty three
I was married to a widow
Who was pretty as could be

This widow had a grown-up daughter
Had hair of red
My father fell in love with her
And soon the two were wed

This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life
My daughter was my mother
'Cause she was my father's wife

To complicate the matters
Even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy

My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle
Though it made me very sad

For if he was my uncle
That also made him the brother
Of the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother

I'm my own grandpa
I'm my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I'm my own grandpa

It's not a Mail article.  It was an anonymous story told to a reporter at Ebony magazine.  If you try to discredit them, you're racist.  Story might still be BS.  I would expect to see this on Springer.  But discrediting information simply because of the source of the information is a logical fallacy.  Take that shiat to the politics tab where it belongs.

Does it seem odd, that the brother knew about her whole family, yet they didn't know him?  That part kind of breaks up the story.  Either made up or dad told him about all his relatives with pictures and he still chose to bang sis.

Fark what society thinks.  It is not all that bad actually.  Inbreeding(assuming they would even decided to have kids) only really becomes a problem when it is done across several generations in a row - like in Kentucky or Arkansas.

I don't think there is a damn thing wrong with them staying together.

Of course it's fourth-hand fiction--it's the  Daily Mail, after all.

On the other hand, statistically speaking, this probably happens all the time. A small but non-negligible number of the babies that get born are not the offspring of the man who thinks (or hopes) he's the father. Any two young people living in the same small town stand a reasonably good chance of farking each other at some point along the way, usually without checking to see if Mom knows any reason why they shouldn't. And that's not even getting into the bizarre coincidences that can happen on a planet of 7,000,000 people.

FWIW, from a genetic standpoint, the occasional baby from half-sibling incest isn't any cause for alarm, any more than the occasional first-cousin marriage is. It's only when you need partial differential equations to count how many different ways you're related to someone that you start having to worry about every nosebleed.

Not a chance.  Thought "Fool for Love" first off, and I haven't seen that movie since I was a kid who wasn't supposed to watch it in the first place.

While I am against this sort of lying and hiding things from your kids, for this very reason, because of actual genetics and science and all that boring stuff, you'd think it not be a big deal biblically..if, you know, we're supposed to take the whole Adam and Eve thing seriously.

namegoeshere: Demetrius: At least make the stories believable, Daily Mail.

There was a story on here years ago about a married couple who went for genetic counseling when they were unable to conceive. They found out they were brother and sister.

IIRC they stayed married and adopted.


I'll raise you this Fark story from a few years ago:  Guy and girl meet in college.  Guy knocks up girl.  At their engagement party, guy's dad recognizes fiances mom as his ex-wife.  Yes, they were brother and sister; parents divorced when kids were young.  Dad kept the son, mom took the daughter.

They weren't brother and sisters. More like clones, kinda. I guess if in the dystopian future men have a rib extracted to grow the perfect wife, which is legally not a separate human being and has no rights or ability to own property...

wait a minute. biblical views on women suddenly make sense.

Maybe we are living in the future and "God" is just the last sentient AI from a technologically advanced past. The human race was on the brink of destruction, due to overindulgence and carelessness... Men were creating legions of sex slaves in vats taken from samples of their body to circumvent personhood laws. After the war, the AI searched for any survivors, as he was programmed to aid humans. Eventually a single man was found, but he had suffered severe brain trauma and had amnesia. The AI called God had his rib removed and placed in the vat, with the other necessary ingredients to make a person -- rare elements gathered from across the ravaged earth. Eve emerged from the vat, and became property of Adam -- as this was the law as programmed into the AI.

What about their kids? They would have had to marry siblings. (Someone once showed me a pamphlet called "Where Did Cain Get His Wife?", the gist of which was that incest was okey-dokey fine back then because apparently we only started developing recessive genetic flaws as a result of the Fall, and within the first generation or two there wouldn't have been enough to make inbreeding a problem. This is, evidently, what creationists actually believe.)

Zarquon's Flat Tire: darwinpolice: ZAZ: Daily Mail links to Ebony as the source.  I think Ebony is more credible than Daily Mail, but I have a melanin deficiency mutation (the one found in most people of European descent) and can't speak authoritatively.

The Onion is a more credible source than Daily Mail.

The Onion just prints things before they happen is all.


I can't answer for anything as farked as this story; however, my old housemate's girlfriend's brother* was the subject of a Mail on Sunday "My Relationship Hell" story, when his girlfriend wrote to their agony aunt about him.

Basically she didn't like the fact that, after a two year relationship, he remained the same selfish douche he was when he dumped his old girlfriend for her. Go figure.

Don't really know why she did it. I think she was really addicted to needless drama and attention; but, anyway, 7 billion people in the world and some of them will actually seem to enjoy telling the press the most personal shiat imaginable.

*Yeah I know, "31 Flavours". But I have met the guy. He does exist and is pretty much as much of a douchebag as the Mail made out.

Don't judge until you've read the whole thing.

I'm just sharing my story because people asked...
Wow... okay, I wasn't sure if I was ever going to tell anyone about this, but it's late and I'm sleep deprived so i guess I'll just write it now and regret it in the morning
First of all, - just for some background: My mom died right when I was born, (she was actually really, really hot- but this isn't about her. I guess that's bad to say, but whatever.) I actually grew up with my dad's family, because my dad has all sorts of emotional issues and he bailed before I was born. So you can see, my childhood was really kind of messed up.
Anyways, growing up I feel like there was always a lot of distance between me and my sister. When I was about 17 or 18 I first noticed that my sister was a hottie.
I don't want to go into to many details about it, but basically what happened is that I accidentally found a video that my sister made of herself. I knew she didn't make it for me- but I thought she was so beautiful that I watched it twice. Probably would have watched it a hell of a lot more, except that like right around the time I found the video, all this crazy stuff went down and I had to leave home. (My dad's family who I was staying with got in bad trouble with the law. I never talk about it).
Sooo... I was totally lusting after my sister at that point. She was also having bad trouble with the law. She was actually in custody when I left home.
My friend and I went to go pick her up. When I saw her that day, after seeing the video, I have to be honest, I just drool all over her. Looking back on it now, it's pretty messed up- but I think she had feelings for me too. She actually kissed me right after we came to get her... and it wasn't a sisterly kiss, you know? I mean, it wasn't like ridiculously sexual or anything, but it definitely wasn't sisterly.
After we left, we all went to crash with my Sister's friends. On the trip there, my friend sort of implied that he wanted to get with my Sister, and I got a little jealous. He's a good looking guy- and even though she was my sister- I just felt like he was competition. Not much else happened between us for a while except some maybe-sexy hugging.
Pretty much everyone in my life at that point was wanted by the government, so we all moved around a lot. I'm not saying that I'm proud of it or anything, but it was kind of an awesome time.
My friend and my sister never hooked up I don't think- but I thought there was some serious sexual tension going on between them. It was around that time that I got really badly hurt in an accident. It was messed up. I almost died. But when I was in recovery my sister came to see me, and out of the clear blue sky she started gives me this awesome, slow, passionate kiss on the lips.
Sadly (although, I guess for the best) nothing ever came of it. We spent some time apart... and I started to get really religious, so I tried not to think of her that way. It was actually going well for a long time- like I was totally over her. But I have to say, like a year or so after all that stuff went down, we were out sailing (not like a date or anything romantic like that), and she was wearing like the hottest bikini I've ever seen and it brought back all the old feelings. Sigh.
A little while later she actually wound up with my friend from before (the sexual tension guy). I can't say I was surprised.
But even after she was shacking up with my friend, there was one time we were at a party... my friend was inside, and my sister and I were outside alone. It was a really intimate moment. I think something might have happened, except that I killed the mood when I told her that Darth Vader was our father.

2013-03-06 11:48:17 AM  
Therapy? Overreact much? Maybe it is that her dad had another family, but finding out the man you have been sleeping with is your half brother shouldn't be a big deal. If you love the person it shouldn't really matter and the offspring chances of birth defects is extremely unlikely even in direct brother sister relationships. Any grossed out feelings are all in your head, because society has programmed those feelings into your head likely to keep brother and sister from engaging in sexual activity as they are growing up.

Fark what society thinks.  It is not all that bad actually.  Inbreeding(assuming they would even decided to have kids) only really becomes a problem when it is done across several generations in a row - like in Kentucky or Arkansas.

I don't think there is a damn thing wrong with them staying together.

But the dad... LOL.


This is not true. The product of a relationship that close is actually very likely to have some sort of genetic disorder. Additionally, even a single first-cousin relationship is correlated with something like an average 5 point drop in IQ in the offspring, and it gets worse the closer the inbreeding coefficient is.

Inbreeding: Everyone on the planet thinks its gross for a reason.

Apparently Ebony won't pay Drew to run their fake stories.

I am not sure what your source of information is, but that is not true and couldn't be true to anyone who understood genetics. The reason a great number of people see it as gross is because most culture's religion condemn it. As far as the sex is concerned there is nothing different about it then two unrelated people having sexual intercourse so it is not gross.

First of all, - just for some background: My mom died right when I was born, (she was actually really, really hot- but this isn't about her. I guess that's bad to say, but whatever.) I actually grew up with my dad's family, because my dad has all sorts of emotional issues and he bailed before I was born. So you can see, my childhood was really kind of messed up.
Anyways, growing up I feel like there was always a lot of distance between me and my sister. When I was about 17 or 18 I first noticed that my sister was a hottie.
I don't want to go into to many details about it, but basically what happened is that I accidentally found a video that my sister made of herself. I knew she didn't make it for me- but I thought she was so beautiful that I watched it twice. Probably would have watched it a hell of a lot more, except that like right around the time I found the video, all this crazy stuff went down and I had to leave home. (My dad's family who I was staying with got in bad trouble with the law. I never talk about it).
Sooo... I was totally lusting after my sister at that point. She was also having bad trouble with the law. She was actually in custody when I left home.
My friend and I went to go pick her up. When I saw her that day, after seeing the video, I have to be honest, I just drool all over her. Looking back on it now, it's pretty messed up- but I think she had feelings for me too. She actually kissed me right after we came to get her... and it wasn't a sisterly kiss, you know? I mean, it wasn't like ridiculously sexual or anything, but it definitely wasn't sisterly.
After we left, we all went to crash with my Sister's friends. On the trip there, my friend sort of implied that he wanted to ge ...


This is the best thing I've read in the last 250 GB of Internet. Awesome!

PS. I also had a crush on your sister.

I still remember a forbearance request I received while working in student loans many years ago.  The woman stated that she needed extensive time to grieve for her father, who was also her brother.  "I believe I need twice the usual allotted time, since there are two different relationships involved," was part of her reasoning.

I had to pass that one along to my supervisor.  I think she got her forbearance, though not for the extended time she requested.

FTFY

It's the deep south for a reason.


You've probably never been to Pineville. Imagine Deliverance, but with less Jon Voight.

Need_MindBleach: This is not true. The product of a relationship that close is actually very likely to have some sort of genetic disorder. Additionally, even a single first-cousin relationship is correlated with something like an average 5 point drop in IQ in the offspring, and it gets worse the closer the inbreeding coefficient is.


This is incorrect.  The average woman over 40 has a greater chance of having a baby with a birth defect than an isolated half-sibling couple.  With genetic counselling, there's absolutely no reason for two people to break up just because they find out they share some blood relation.  Also, there's strong evidence that  your ideal genetic partner is your 3rd cousin.

Need_MindBleach: Inbreeding: Everyone on the planet thinks its gross for a reason.


Not everyone.  There have been several cultures where brother-sister marriage was common and even preferred.  The real reason for the incest taboo is most likely the combination of RWA/SDO thinking and  Westermarck Effect.
