The Latest Media Push: INCEST. Seriously.

The Leftist media’s crusade to strip away stigmas from all damaging behavior has hit new lows over the last year; first Salon heinously tried to normalize pedophilia and now The Telegraph is doing the same with incest.

The Leftist publication argues that feelings of “Genetic Sexual Attraction” (GSA) are actually quite “normal” and should not be judged. Above all else, we must be tolerant — the Left’s only “moral” standard.

The Telegraph’s Charlotte Gill exploits the recent disturbing tabloid “relationship” between Kim West, a 51-year-old and her son. West initially gave up her son for adoption but upon reuniting 30 years later, her “motherly love” took a nosedive into the deep end: The couple “fell in love” and are now looking to get marriage and have children.

Gill is befuddled over the “outrage” coming from the public over such a relationship; incest happens all the time, was essentially her argument:

It’s interesting that the public was so outraged, because the couple’s story is far from unique. In fact, a number of family romances have emerged over the last decade – and I can’t see them stopping any time soon. There have been cases of grandparents settling down with grandchildren, fathers and daughters in love, and even twins twinned up.

Gill explains that these “relationships” are likely linked to GSA: “a powerful sexual attraction that occurs when biological relatives – parent and offspring, siblings or half siblings or first and second cousins – meet for the first time as adults.”

Then comes the apologetics for West, a grown woman preying on her own son for a romantic relationship. Gill argues that West’s “degree of control in this situation” is “overestimated” by the public. “Often GSA sufferers feel powerless – as if their feelings are impossible to change,” says Gill, attempting to rationalize incest.

She then goes into detail explaining how common GSA can be within adoption cases, such as West’s, where reunification leads to initial sexual attraction. Since this is the case, acting on feelings of incest is more of a “regularity.”

“Put in this context, West becomes far less of a freak and more of regularity,” says Gill. “In the future, I hope they won’t have to hide away,” she adds.

Needless to say, Gill’s logic leaves a number of questions: So, what if West was reunited with her son years ago, when he was, say, 18 years old? Younger? Does this logic still hold? What if a father has “GSA” for his daughter? At what point in time does this become a “regularity” and not morally despicable? Is it wrong for uncles, grandfathers, aunts, any family elder to use “GSA” as an excuse to exploit an innocent, trusting younger family member?

The Telegraph’s latest push to normalize incest is par for the course with the Left. We have seen it deployed on the act of murdering children in the womb and pedophilia; in that context, sadly, incest doesn’t seem all that shocking. But whatever the intent of the Leftist media, the result of pushing “tolerance” over traditional morals via stripping stigmas from wrong, harmful behavior can often be nothing short of evil.
