Australian Judge Says Incest May No Longer Be Taboo


If incest is no longer taboo, it’s safe to say that the very concept of a taboo is dead. An Australian judge named Garry Nielson says society might just have to accept consensual sex between siblings, likening these relationships to–surprise, surprise!–gay unions.

The best part? Nielson made these comments during the trial of a man charged with raping his then 11-year-old: sister–which I’m sure made the victim feel terrific. Was this really the time and place to break down old-fashioned, narrow-minded ideas about how people shouldn’t sleep with their siblings?

Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and “unnatural” but is now widely accepted. He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.

The comments were labelled misogynistic and “completely disgraceful” by Sally Dowling, the crown prosecutor, who has asked an appeal court to appoint another judge.

In addition to his other loony comments, the “just have an abortion” part makes this guy sound like a parody of a left-wing nut who embraces evil in the name of breaking down societal barriers. (I was waiting for him to go all the way and recommend mandatory abortions for incest: victims.): Sadly, it’s real. I hope this babbling lunatic is removed from the case, since any judge who would make these statements during a rape trial is not fit to preside over it.
