A judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult 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.
"A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now 'available', not having [a] sexual partner," the judge said.
If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you'd invariably have, they would say it's unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy. Those things have gone."

Eliminate antique words like right and wrong, and look how much more freedom we have.
Sodom and Gomorhah redux.
Are you sure Australia is only about 10 years behind the US? It looks like chapter 1 of Paul's letter to the Romans, is in full affect. Oh well, I am going to take a walk down by the local billabong.
The world is truly going crazy.
Well——I’ll be a motherf**ker!
Gives a new meaning to “down under”. Crikey, mate. We’re not safe anywhere, anymore.
Next thing you know, it’ll be Australian judges and kangaroos.
A well known Sydney preacher said, maybe 25 years ago, that allowing legalizing homosexuality would eventually lead to all other sorts of perversion being made legal - Of course he was howled down by all those wise ones who know better. Only good thing is at least this judge was still criticized for it so we are not quite that far gone yet :)
“I guess this is society ‘evolving’?”
Devolving is more like it.
On the one hand we were told with the “normalization” of homosexual activity that there was no slippery slope and that conservatives were just demagoguing. On the other hand, the whole idea of “no one should be discriminated based on who they love” carried out to its logical conclusion is what is actually happening and it’s one straight slide to perdition for society.
Judge was probably a product of an incestuous relationship!
