Dont know if its bull or not, but it does seem to predominantly affect adults that meet a relative for the first time as adults. While i cant comment on her (im assuming its a her, i have the special app that dont show me diddly beyond the name) age, i will assume she knew him for most of her life.

You're probably being down-voted because you're being overly dramatic and also attacking the OP for something she clearly already feels bad about. It's not like she chose to be attracted to her brother. You don't even have to show sympathy, but there's no need to go on the offensive about that or about people daring to down-vote you for reasons you can't possibly know for sure.

This is going to sound like a total cop-out to make myself sound better, but I'm super bipolar. (Someone is going to get offended, yes I am actually bipolar, don't get your panties in a twist) I was having a moment. I totally realize it was over dramatic now that I have relaxed. I deserve down votes for being a prick. But also, having romantic feelings for your family is still weird.

91--how? From my understanding, the only state that allows first cousin marriage (without restrictions; 6 states allow with restrictions, West Virginia is not one) is North Carolina. So I would think that state, or a state with restrictions would have the highest.

Um I live in Texas and have never met anyone who thought any kind of incest was okay. Cousin relationships aren't even legal here like in some other states... so this comment makes no sense.

Yeah I live in Texas, this is not a problem here. Yeah we have some ass backwards laws and "traditions" but that's just rude. All my friends have siblings and I can honestly say they have no attraction to them, heck some of them can't stand their siblings.

90, are you fucking stupid? Have you ever seen a map? It's literally the most south you can get. Even if it was "south west," which its not, it would still be in the god damn south.

Maybe a dumb question, but how do you see where the poster is located? I haven't been able to figure it out since they changed the app a bit. I can see commenter locations by clicking their profile picture, but I don't see that posters have one...

Hi I live in Texas. I believe I've been told that while we are literally one of the most southward states, along with Florida and such, Texas doesn't really belong in the "Deep South" category, even though geographically it is more south than some of those states. Texas sometimes even counts as central for some reason.

You might want to revisit the map. Yes Texas is somewhat central in the U.S but the majority of the area Texas covers is to the west. The size of Texas is what makes it confusing to some. Have you ever heard a Texan from Odessa reference Odessa as being west Texas?

Thank you I'm from Texas and jokes like that really get old. Just because there is someone that likes their brother doesn't mean that everyone in Texas are like that. Just cause we're from the south doesn't make us all cousin fuckers.

Even if they weren't blood-related, it's still just as big of a psychological problem if they grew up from a very young age knowing each other as siblings. As animals, we're biologically programmed to know "I will never be attracted to this person because we are related" because we recognize them as family from a young age to avoid genetic mutation (whether they're really blood-related or not). But if they didn't become siblings until later, or just met recently, then her attraction wouldn't be a psychological problem.

The thing you're talking about is called the Westermarck effect and its an extremely debated topic. The idea is if you're raised as siblings you'll develop a complete disinterest in them sexually. Some scientists think it's mostly society that dissuades people from being (and admitting to) sexual attraction to their families.
