Kevin just went on TMZ Live to clarify what he posted a few days back ...that he was dating a woman a few years ago and after 3 months his grandma told him the lady was his cousin. they began dating in 2006 and continued dating for nearly 2 years after finding out.The study's authors and its trumpeters in the media suffer from the congenital liberal conceit that science solves all moral questions.The authors instruct genetic counselors to focus on "validating feelings" and helping cousin couples "normalize" their relationships by explaining how common cousin marriages are. What if, in addition, your dad and my dad are brothers?
According to headlines and TV reports, "science" has proved that cousin marriages are "OK." No, it hasn't. The first couple produces me; the second couple produces you.He says he never found out whether it was a first, second, third cousin or even more remote. The rapper and the woman are still close, and he has no regrets and feels no weirdness about their relationship. But why couldn't genetic screening take care of that problem?As points out, "Current studies indicate that cousin couples have a lower ratio of miscarriages—perhaps because body chemistry of cousins is more similar." Wouldn't the chance of miscarriage be even lower for siblings?From this, the media have concluded that marrying your first cousin is "OK." Is it?As Frame Game has argued before, topics such as sex with animals, dog-eating, and sex with cousins are never as simple as they're made out to be. The group is people who are married to their cousins.These people note that 20 percent of marriages around the world are between first cousins, that Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin married their first cousins, and that first-cousin marriage, while prohibited in half the United States, is legal in Canada and throughout Europe.To let cousins marry, they argue, is "to play Russian roulette with genetics." Many genetic diseases are caused by recessive genes.To get the disease, you have to get the bad gene from both parents.
