Well, I had a nice little gem in my inbox today from a young man in Mumbai who went from conservative to supportive just by reading Keith’s Blog. It proves how minds and hearts can be changed by the power of words. Presumably he is a visitor of mine too since he contacted me. Anyway, here is his message:
Hi Jane,Its a pleasure to contact you knowing how real your experience is and how committed you are to this cause of equality in love and marriage. I’m [Name removed] from Mumbai and not until very recently I’ve come to know about this movement. I am a typical young guy just used to waste time on porn sites a lot. Sis, I have to admit that I have not come to support this movement in a noble way. It all began with reading a romantic incest story on literotica and wondering if such this happens for real. I then landed on “fullmarriageequality” to get shocked by all the case studies I read. I was really scared if reading further on this topic would severely damage my conservative views but I ended up realizing my hypocrisy. I mean, all I wanted in life was a wonderfully romantic relationship with the one who is my special one. and if so then how can I find fault with those who happen to have such a relationship just because that their special one happens to be their close relative. After reading much on the resources available in FME and elsewhere, I’ve come to seeing a totally different picture of this.
You must have known about how many tumblr site are there regarding “incest”ual relationships and you know how its always about the sexual forbidenness aspect of it. But I am honestly surprised to see people who truly love each other and not just their bodilly feelings.
I’m feel great about these people who are persecuted by this hypocritical world and are strong
Jane, I really dont believe that the “majority” of people feel incest is wrong. May be they think its wrong but they if face with a similar situation like this may come to a different conclusion about this. Till then, its just hypocrisy doing he talking.
I dont how to support this openly given my strong tradition surroundings but I do want to honor and show support for the people who really need it.
I recently came into contact with a real life Mother and Daughter couple living not far away through a porn site and it is now, after knowing the ups and downs they go through that I decided to actively participate in this movement.
As of now, I started doing my part in participating in informal discussion with my friends and collegues but only subtly and not overtly.
The reason I am writing to you is, first of all, to show my support personally to you and also getting your help in getting started wuth KS forums, cause, I remember introducing myself somewhere in the forum and I cant find my post and neither have i figured out how to get in touch with other people. So please do help. Thanks and all the best.
