"The Notebook" Director Says Incest is Okay

From CBS Las Vegas:

A top Hollywood director finds it acceptable for people to commit incest.

In an interview with The Wrap, director Nick Cassavetes believes no one should judge a brother and sister being with each other if they are in love.

“I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?” Cassavetes told The Wrap. “If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”

Cassavetes added that he does not have experience with incest.

The comments come after he unveiled his latest movie “Yellow” – in which a woman had an incestuous affair with her brother that is in prison – at the Toronto Film Festival. The movie does not yet have a distributor in the states.

Cassavetes also directed “Alpha Dog” and “The Notebook.”

"Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want?" Wow, that's the first time I've heard someone in the pro-Gay marriage camp link it with incest... in what he thinks is a positive way. Actually sounds like the "slippery slope" argument used by many advocates of the Traditional Family...
