    @bells:  I always thought that aspect of Clueless was so creepy!  And plus, wasn’t he in his mid-to-late 20s and she was just 16?  As-if!

    Clueless is the same thing I thought of when I read this. It’s still weird to me..

    I was actually kinda wierded out at the end of Clueless. :  Which makes no sense, it’s not the same as a sibling… but… yeah no.

    I find it weird cause you grew up as brother and sister. Who cares if you arent blood related! I remember this was in  on of The Brady Bunch movies where the brother and sister got together even though they weren’t blood related I still found it creepy

    I do think this is wierd and creepy and I could never do it. But I also heard that she never officially “adopted” him, thats just what they called him. but still, gross.

    To me it kind of depends on whether they were raised together as brother and sister. If they were, then it’s weird.

    If they never met until they were already adults and their parents just got married, then it doesn’t seem as wrong to me. I always thought Clueless was the second situation…

    There was a couple in the U.S. that wanted to get married, but their blood test showed they were full blood sister and brother! Their mother gave them up for adoption as babies… Yeah, they fought it tooth and nail, becasue it’s against the law, and I haven’t heard if they did get hitched? 

    But for me, personally, as soon as I got to know that my “sexual partner” was my full sibling, YUCK, I wouldn’t be able to continue that relationship!

    Its weird.

    Ive also read that he wasn’t really adopted? I dont know. But in some article I read they wrote that on twitter she said something like “I love my big brotha”. or something like that.

    It’s just weird.

    I’m of the train of thought that “family” extends beyond bloodlines. So it’s still not right in my book.

    I’m adopted and there is NO WAY I could do that *shudder*. BUT, thats me. I’m not going to judge them. So long as they are two consenting adults that’s their business.

    I don’t know. I mean, if you were raised as siblings from a time when you were really young, then yeah, it’s pretty weird. But if one or both of you was adopted at a later age, then maybe it’s OK. It seems weird, but if they’re happy then that’s what matters in my book.

    If  brother and sister were rasied together as siblings doing things that siblings do (ie sharing baths when younger) it would be totally wrong.

    But say they were brother and sister through adoption to a parent that was seperated or something like that so they weren’t so much raised together….it is slightly different….but only slightly.  Its still on the borderline of just plain weird.
