A lot of people have been talking about this fun love story:
Monica Mares and Caleb Peterson could face up to 18 months in jail if found guilty of incest at a trial later this year in New Mexico, according to the Daily Mail. But the 36-year-old woman and her 19-year-old son say they are in love, and they are willing to do anything to fight for their relationship. “He is the love of my life, and I don’t want to lose him,” Mares told the Daily Mail. “My kids love him, my whole family does. Nothing can come between us not courts or jail. Nothing.”
Mares, who has eight other children, said she would be willing to give up the right to see her other children in order to be with Peterson. “Whatever it takes to be together,” she said.
Mares gave birth to Peterson when she was 16 years old. She named him Carlos and gave him up for adoption. He was later renamed by his adoptive parents. The mother and son met again last year when Peterson was 18, according to the Daily Mail. They got in touch on Facebook, and agreed to meet. Mares picked Peterson up from his adoptive father’s house in Texas on Christmas Day and brought him to her home. Mares said their relationship started out as a familial one.
“I met him outside, and I knew it was him when he came towards me,” she said. “He was crying, and he gave me a hug. It was almost love at first sight, but first it was mother love. He gave me a mother hug. He came home in the truck and came to live with me, and we were both happy as mother and son.”
Then, she said she started getting “crazy” feelings. “It felt like I met somebody new in my life, and I fell in love with him,” Mares said. “At first I told him, ‘I’m sorry. I don’t know how you are going to react to this. I’m your mom, and you’re my son, but I’m falling in love with you.’ And he said, ‘You know what, I am too. I was scared to let you know.’ He was falling in love with his mom, and I was falling in love with my son. We talked about it, and we took off to the park. I said, ‘Would you ever date your mom?’ And he said, ‘Would you ever date your son?’ And I said, ‘Honest truth — yes, I would.'”
“I never had anyone cook me meals or give me anything,” Peterson said. “I never got anything my entire life, and she went out of her way to make me happy, and after about a week or so, I started having feelings for her, and I guess I fell in love. It went beyond a mother-son relationship. I never really viewed her as my mom. In certain aspects I do, but mostly, I don’t. I never thought I was crazy for having these feelings because I didn’t see her as my mom. It was more like going to a club and meeting a random person. It didn’t feel wrong. It felt normal.”
The couple maintained their secret relationship until police found out in February. They were charged with incest. Mares and Peterson were released on $5,000 bond, and Mares, whose youngest children had started to call Peterson “Dad,” is not allowed to see any of her children, according to the Daily Mail. Mares and Peterson are not allowed to see each other.
“It is every bit worth it,” Mares said. “If they lock me up for love, then they lock me up. There is no way anybody could pull us apart, and I really do love him. It hurts (that) he is far away. It hurts really bad. I wish I could see him, talk to him, but I can’t risk it.”
Mares and Peterson hope to raise awareness of “genetic sexual attraction,” relationships in which sexual attraction manifests between close relatives who meet for the first time as adults.
At first Turtleboy was kind of grossed out by this. But then I realized this made me an Incestaphobic bigot, so I checked my non-familial relationship privilege and am now proudly supporting these lovebirds right to love who they want to love.
Turtleboy has been pro-gay marriage since day one. If we suddenly decided to draw lines about which consenting adults can and can’t get married then that would make us huge hypocrites. After all, love is loves is love right? That’s become the slogan at every Pride event.
Like I said, Turtleboy is pro gay marriage. But we’re anti-meaningless feel good slogans. And that’s exactly what “love is love” is – something that makes SJW’s feel good about themselves when they say it. But at no point did they think about the the doors that would be opened with “love is love.” When your slogan is that vague, this is what you get. Here’s some of the answers Gabrielle Ross got when she asked people at the Pride parade what “love is love” means to them:
“Caring, kindness, acceptance”
“love is butterflies in your stomach”
“it means freedom, it means freedom to be whoever I am.”
“love doesnt discriminate”
“you should be able to love whoever you want to”
“You do you”
“No one else can decide whether it’s good or bad.”
“No matter what form your love takes it is equally appreciated and recognized.”
Every single one of those things applies to this Mom who simply wants the right to enter the bone zone with a human being who emerged from her birth canal 19 years ago. So yea, I would expect that every single person in this video would proudly support their right to do as they please.
But of course we know they won’t because social justice warriors are completely full of shit and ALWAYS hypocritical. Here’s a small sampling of the reaction this story is getting:
Mom and son should get some counseling? Hmmmmm….what does that sound a lot like? Oh yea, conversion therapy. Remember when we used to think that homosexuality was some sort of mental disorder that could be fixed with a shrink? How is that any different than telling these two lovebirds that they need counseling?
“Wrong.” “Disgusting.” These of course were words that many homophobic people used when they saw two men kissing in public. Sounds like hate speech to me.
Honestly, Turtleboy doesn’t give a shit about this. Consenting grown adults should be able to marry whoever they want. How does this at all affect my life? It doesn’t. Plus, these two aren’t even trying to get married, they just wanna bone in Mom’s trailer.
Disgusting. Who wears socks with sandals? That trailer just perfectly complements this story though.
Love the uncollared and clearly hungry dog having some fun with those abandoned pipes. Fits in well with the mangled kiddie pool, abandoned tires, and broken dreams. Although the son’s home isn’t much better:
Ya know who else doesn’t give a shit? Step Dad #3:
That shirt is phenomenal hot fire. It looks like something Grandma Turtleboy brought me home from Maurice the Pantsman’s sidewalk sale back in 95.
By the way, Mom seems like the oldest 36 year old in world history. She’s apparently living life in WANDA years. This is her back in her “college” days:
It all makes sense now.
Look, the bottom line is it’s perfectly normal to think about homosexuality and get disgusted by it, so long as you respect their right to be themselves. Murica. That’s what we want people to admit – you think it’s gross. It’s OK to think that. If you didn’t think it was gross then it would mean you’re gay, and there’s nothing wrong with that either. I have to assume that’s what gay people think when they see heterosexual people doing it. We’ve all been scrolling through some of our favorite websites and accidentally come across……..that. You just keep scrolling and pretend you didn’t see it because no one is watching. That’s just a scientific fact.
The same thing has to apply to these two. You might get grossed out when you think about it, but we have to respect their right to do what they want because this is the door we’ve opened with vague slogans like “love is love.”
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
