I have read a couple of websites that are for marriage equality for all consenting adults. I was just curious how many people think like this. If you support gay marriage do you also support marriage between siblings or parent and child?

I don't really care what adults do, or if they are related or not. As long as they don't give birth to a mutated baby. I think that is one big concern about incest. Although the dangers are somewhat exaggerated. It typically takes a couple of generations of incest to be as bad as people seem to think it is. A forty year old woman is as likely to have a sick baby, as a 20 year old woman that is having her cousins child. Yet we don't discriminate against older women having kids the way we do people that commit incest.
Parent and child is different than other types of incest. One has had power over the other for so long. There would be no way to know if they had been brainwashed from birth to be a sex slave or not. So the issue there is somewhat different.
Over all though, I think it would be hypocritical to say two cousins can't get married when everyone else can. Especially if the two can't have kids anyway. What if it were gay cousins? No argument could be made involving them having children. And if it is okay for gay cousins, it would be discrimination not to let straight cousins marry.
Unfortunately the government likes to tell everyone else how to live their life.2
