Annoyed by the Term Incest

by Chelsea

I'd just like to comment on the term "Incest". I find it a disturbing, misleading word that only serves to soften the reality of rape. I feel incest is consentual sex between adult family members and not the raping of a innocent child. "Family" should not have a separate term for the same crime. Rape is rape no matter who perpetrates it so I have and will never use the term "incest" to describe sex between an adult and child family member. I consider it a slap in the face to the victim.

Agreed!!! It implies consent and equal blame.
