Woman Goes To Jail For Sleeping With The Teenage Son She Gave Up At Birth

Detroit’s Aimee L. Sword has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in prison for having sex with her 14-year-old son, who she gave up for adoption when he was an infant. The 36-year-old Sword was married with five other kids when she tracked down her teenage son on Facebook. And, uh, started meeting him in hotel rooms for trysts. The boy eventually brought it up to a counselor, who told the police. The prosecutor said he was “concerned for this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future.” Meanwhile Sword’s attorney told the press, “When she saw this boy, it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Aimee’s searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it. She’s going to get some counseling.” Keep reading »

This Indiana Grandmother Is Having A Baby — With Her Grandson

Look, I’m a romantic. I believe in true love as much as the next gal. But I draw the line at incest, save the sexy kind written up in my fave V.C. Andrews’ beach reads.

According to Australia’s New Idea magazine, 72-year-old Pearl Carter had a daughter, Lynette, who she gave for adoption when she was 18. Years later, Lynette had a son, Phil Bailey, now 25. After Lynette died of brain cancer, Phil decided to track down his grandmother and, um, love blossomed. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Oklahoma Pols Override Governor’s Vetoes On Scary Abortion Bills

  • The Oklahoma Legislature voted today to override two vetoes on bills restricting abortion, which Governor Brad Henry had vetoed last week. One bill requires a doctor to show a woman who wants an abortion an ultrasound and describe the development of the fetus, with no exception for rape and incest victims. The second bill protects doctors from malpractice lawsuits if they do not tell the parents that the fetus has birth defects. Gov. Henry said the first bill was an intrusion into a woman’s privacy and called the second bill immoral. Two other abortion-related bills are still working their way through OK’s legislature.

  • Did you know there are “chick cars” and “dude cars”? Automotive industry experts say accelerator and break pedals are now being made with womens’ high heels in mind and the 2010 Chevy Equinox comes with a spacious center console for a purse (although if you’re a dude, the salesman might tell you it’s for “a laptop”). A General Motors spokesman also said a back-up camera display in the rear-view mirror will be helpful for people who have trouble parallel parking, which we’re supposed to infer means women. Annoying. [Wheels.ca]

Evil Guy Rapes 5 Of His Daughters, Impregnates 3 Of Them

This New Jersey man will certainly get the Worst Father of the Century award and, hopefully, will spend the rest of his life in jail. After having apocalyptic visions, he raped five of his daughters … and impregnated three. Their babies were born at home and did not get birth certificates. When some of them died, they were buried without authorities ever knowing they existed. The father’s reign of terror lasted for more than a decade and, during that time, the girls also had to endure beatings with wooden boards and steel-toed boots and were often deprived of food.

Mackenzie Phillips Changes Her Tune About Her Relationship With Her Papa

Mackenzie Phillips recently revealed that she had an incestuous relationship with her father, Mamas & The Papas singer John Phillips. But now she’s changing her tune about the relationship. In her memoir, Phillips called the relationship with her father “consensual.” But yesterday on “The Joy Behar Show,” she decided to “reframe” the situation saying, “I wouldn’t necessarily call it a consensual relationship at this time.” Keep reading »

Is “Consensual” Incest OK?

We were pretty shocked when Mackenzie Phillips published a book revealing that she had a decade-long sexual relationship with her father, John Phillips of The Mamas and The Papas. But we were even more surprised when she defended it, saying she was raped initially but, later on, the acts were “consensual.” This whole thing sparked a huge debate about Genetic Sexual Attraction, or GSA. Genetic Sexual Attraction is an emotional and physical attraction between family members. The feelings often start after the two have been separated for a long time and, upon reuniting, find there is something, er, more between them. Most think it’s totes wrong but there is a vocal minority that says GSA is just misunderstood. I’ll present both sides, then you can tell us what you think! Keep reading »

    (Another) Quote Of The Day: Bijou Phillips Doesn’t Know What To Believe

    “When I was 13, Mackenzie told me that she had a consensual sexual relationship with our father. This news was confusing and scary, as I lived alone with my father since I was 3. I didn’t know what to believe, and it didn’t help that shortly there after Mackenzie told me it didn’t happen. Mackenzie’s history with our father is hers, but also clouded with 30 years of drug abuse. I hope she can come to terms with this and find peace. The life I had with my father was very different. He was Mr. Mom, encouraging and loving. The man that raised me would never be capable of doing such things, and if he was, it is heartbreaking to me to think that my family would leave me alone with him. I understand Mackenzie’s need to come clean with a history she feels will help others, but it’s devastating to have the world watch as we try and mend broken fences, especially when the man in question isn’t here to defend himself.”

    Coming Soon To A Record Store Near You: John and Mackenzie Phillips Duets!

    Holy inappropriate, Batman. It hasn’t even been 24 hours since “One Day at a Time” actress Mackenzie Phillips sat down on Oprah‘s couch and tearfully confessed that she had an incestuous relationship with her dad, John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas’ fame, for more than a decade that culminated in a pregnancy and subsequent abortion. And already, the keeper of John Phillips’ estate, a lawyer named Jeffrey A. Greenberg, has made a strange announcement. No, he hasn’t come out and said anything about the allegations. But he does want us all to know that he’ll be releasing an album of songs recorded by John and Mackenzie Phillips in the ’80s, when John decided to revive the Mamas & the Papas with Mackenzie and a few original bandmates. The album will be called either “Papa John and Friends” or “Many Mamas, Many Papas” and won’t be out until early next year, though Greenberg is looking to release a single soon. “Obviously, [John is] not around now to speak to any of this,” says Greenberg. “People will make up their own minds. I was a huge fan of his and my object is to hopefully make people aware of John’s music and his talent. In a perverse way, I guess, if there is a way to make lemonade out of the lemons, that would be good.” I don’t know, this album sounds pretty exploitative to me. And that photo above kind of turns my stomach. [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
