Oedipus Rex

This couple does not yet have anyone publicly championing their right to get married under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.


But it will happen eventually:

KITCHENER -- A Cambridge woman and her 25-year-old son were sentenced for incest and forgery yesterday for a five-year relationship that led to three more children in the family.

The 42-year-old woman was sentenced to 43 months behind bars while her son was given a 19-month conditional sentence.

They were found guilty in August of posing as husband and wife and having sex with each other between 1996 and 2001.

They cannot be named to protect the identity of their two children, who are now in foster care.


Justice Pat Flynn called the woman a "monster" during sentencing yesterday.

"I've never encountered a more bizarre case in my quarter-century in the law," Flynn said.

The couple actually got married and the man claimed to be his mother's husband. He even made up a new name, giving himself the title of prince. He donned a pair of glasses and adopted an English accent.

"Monster?" How judgmental. How bigoted. How phobic.

The state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation, don't you know? Two consenting adults, nobody getting hurt, etc., etc.

Their offspring? Who cares about children so long as adults have their Charter-given right to screw whoever they want upheld?
