Today in things that make you say, "That's enough Internet for today," we have a controversial interview with an 18-year-old woman engaged to her dad.
You read that correctly. The pair, who first consummated their relationship when she was only 17, plan on marrying and having children together.
The interview, published by NY Magazine, has been the subject of widespread scrutiny and, if I'm being honest, disgust.
In an effort to shed light on those with Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA), the publication chose to interview a young woman with a history of depression and a disconnected family.
Some allege the interview is either a fake or heavily edited because many of the teen's comments seem a bit too formal.
But, without further delay, here are some of the interview's most important highlights.
Read the full interview here.
The anonymous interviewee, identified only as a resident of the "Great Lakes area" grew up estranged from her father after the age of 5.
My parents had me when they were 18 — they met in high school and I was conceived on prom night. They were serious for about six months but broke up while my mom was still pregnant with me.
Her bipolar mother had a series of boyfriends with whom she never connected, followed by four stepfathers.
What I missed was a fatherly figure. My mom's always picked the wrong guy out of the crowd and she's had a couple of divorces.
She's also suffers chronic depression and is self-conscious about her weight after years of bullying.
When my dad and I started dating I became more confident, and it's funny how much more attractive that makes you feel.
The interviewee, who identifies as bisexual, never really felt close to her past significant others. She also wasn't allowed much of a social life.
In fifth grade I dated a boy for two years. But one night he got drunk and had sex with a girl who ended up pregnant... I had a girlfriend in middle school... every time we were intimate she would sob and read me verses out of the Bible.
At the age of 17, her mother's bipolarity spiraled and she connected with her long-lost dad on Facebook.
We shared the same favorite TV shows — 'The Simpsons' and 'The Big Bang Theory' — and we both love to draw. He came to see me about a week later.
Although she found her dad attractive, a five-day visit was the first time she experienced sexual urges toward him.
I saw him as my dad but then also part of me was like, I'm meeting this guy who I have been talking to over the internet and really connecting with and I find him attractive.
He lived with a long-term girlfriend, but father and daughter slept in the living room together for four days before anything happened.
When he woke up, we were spooning. I didn't know this at the time but later, after we admitted our feelings, he told me he had had 'morning wood.'
After he initiated a wrestling session soon after, the two talked about their feelings and had consensual sex.
I told him I wanted him to be the first person I made love to. We talked about how it could be awkward if it didn't end up working out.
Nearly two years later, the pair is engaged and planning a wedding.
I'm planning on a full-on wedding but it won't be legally registered... The color scheme is black and purple, and we are both going to wear Converse tennis shoes.
The pair plans to tell the 18-year-old's mother.
We plan to move to New Jersey where we can be safe under the law... I'll call my mom and let her know that we are in love and we are having children. If she wants to see her grandkids we'll send her money and she can drive to see us.
She's not worried about incest-related birth defects but doesn't plan to tell her children that mom and dad are related.
I don't want to give [the kids] any problems... Everybody just needs to deal with [incest] as long as nobody is getting hurt or getting pressured or forced.
She took her dad to the prom and the pair are rarely separated.
He's a maintenance man and I am studying cosmetology, but other than that we are together 24/7.
And she's used to the disapproval of others.
I just don't understand why I'm judged for being happy... When you are 18 you know what you want. You're an adult under the law and you're able to consent.
