With all the Christianist blather about gay marriage leading to incestuous marriages, etc., Queerty has an interesting post that looks at the states that allow first cousins to marry as shown above. It would seem that Maggie Gallagher has bigger things to worry about than gay marriage. Virginia, which bans same sex marriages and domestic partnerships and discriminates against gays in general, would allow me to marry my first cousin as long as my cousin is not male. Pretty creepy in my view. Not surprisingly, seven of the states that allow first cousins to marry are in the Bible Belt.
