They were talking about LGBT issues on a "panel" on some talk show just now on Japanese TV (the Japanese are still a bit behind on all this, but making efforts). My son (who I have tried to raise to have an open mind on things*) was also watching and he asked, "If it's legal for the same sex to get married in some places, would there be an issue with marrying a relative like your cousin or even your sister if the the genetic issue doesn't come into it?" "Good question" I answered. Pretty good question for a 14 year old in a culture that really has yet to address gay issues, I thought.
What's the answer to this question? Yes, as long as long as two sister don't use their brother as a surrogate father? No, because it's just wrong? Haven't thought about it much yet.
*Except for cats vs. dogs. Dogs druel, cats rule. It's a fact.

Hey if its between 2 consenting adults - WHY NOT ??
The "right" likes to treat teens as adults when it comes to crime - 14, 15, 16 yr olds tried as an adult. BUT when it comes to social issues- drinking, marriage, legal stuff… ah they gotta be 18 or 21 !! WHAT a fabricated bunch of BS !!
I say let anyone "marry" who wants to - doesn't impact anyone else !! What the matter with a man marrying another man to make an honest man out of him ? (or woman in the blanks)
