Being attracted to those who are genetically related is natural, as third to fourth cousins make the best mates,
This is why a natural aversion occurs between siblings who grow up together or else they may choose each others as mates, thereby limiting their offspring’s genetic inheritance, which would include an effective fitness strategy against environmental stress, such as pathogens, disease or predators,
If I had a sister and if she was as hot as me…
Oh, the joy!
Why am I not surprised to see a white nationalist praising incest?
Apparently aeonblacksun also doesn’t realize that, apart from being really really really squicky, any genetic relationship closer than first cousins (like, y’know, siblings) limits the genetic diversity of any potential offspring and over time will exponentially increase said offspring's probability of having recessive genetic disorders and dying unusually young. There's a reason incest has been frowned upon in every world culture (Egyptian pharoes excepted- and we all know what happened to them…) and it sure ain’t because it’s good for you.
Also, just as a side note, the coefficient of relationship- that is, the percentage of genes two people share as a result of a blood relationship- between fourth cousins (the “best mates”, apparently) is 0.20%. This percentage of genetic similarity is the same percentage that you would get in comparison to any random individual of the same ethnic group as you. So basically, buddy, marrying your fourth cousin is sort of like marrying some dude off the street with the same ethnic heritage as you. You’re really, functionally, not related at all.
So yeah, sorrynotsorry, incest is still squicky and bad for you. Biology strikes again.
In 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world.

This officially made my day.
My first real contribution to the fandom! This’s what happens when I watch TV and read the Bible at the same time.
I deliberately saturated the eye colors to emphasize the contrast with the b&w in the rest of it (and also Peter lining up with Peter was actually a total coincidence). Also not a professional (or even a particularly good amateur) so I apologize for suckage.
"Tunak Tunak Tun" (Punjabi: ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣਕ ਤੁਣ) or "Tunak", is a bhangra/pop love song by Indian artist Daler Mehndi released in 1998. At the time, critics complained that Mehndi’s music was only popular due to his videos that featured beautiful women dancing. Mehndi’s response was to create a video that featured only himself.
also gosh the lyrics to this are actually really sweet & great i never realised
Fool me once shame on you, twice shame on me, 3 times? I’m UNRWA
"In a related development, UNRWA said that a cache of rockets was found today at one of its schools in central Gaza. The discovery came during a regular UNRWA inspection of the school, which was closed for the summer and not being used as a shelter. All the relevant parties have been notified.
“We condemn the group or groups who endangered civilians by placing these munitions in our school,” said UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness. “This is yet another flagrant violation of the neutrality of our premises. We call on all the warring parties to respect the inviolability of UN property.”
"Group or groups" exactly who the hell else does he think is running around Gaza hiding rockets inside schools?
Palestine, as defended by a group of people who have clearly never read the Hamas charter. You know, the one that calls for Sharia law to be implemented and thus, by immediate extension, advocates the death penalty for any open homosexuals. Especially (as females) these self-proclaimed ‘dykes’.
Congratulations, oh ye of little intelligence.
Why is it that when two girls have to share a bed they’re just like “oh okay which side do you want?” and when two guys have to share a bed they’re all awkward and uncomfortable about it?
