How Society Tries to Justify Its Taboos with Fake Biology, or: Why Not to Trust Your Doctor

Jayelle recently posted links to articles on discrimination against the intermarriage of cousins, and why such discrimination cannot be rationalized for biological reasons (for the record, I personally am descended from several sets of 17th to 19th century intermarried cousins, as well as other intermarried relatives much further back); and on a deaf lesbian couple who deliberately tried to have a deaf child (and succeeded). Jayelle's entries, and my comments on them (which are pretty extensive), can be found here and here.
