The actual post unedited except for spacing read:
“GUYS I WAS SO UPSET YESTERDAY I ACCIDENTALLY LEFT MY TAGGED PROFILE OPEN AND MY UNCLE WENT AND SAW EVERYTHING!!!!!

I WAS SHOCKED AND SURPRISE TO HEAR THIS FROM HIM, NOW IM PREPARED AND EQUIPT WITH A KNIFE IF HE TRIES ANYTHING, OH! AND HES A POLICE OFFICER AS WELL WHICH MAKES IT MUCH WORST, SO GUYS I NEED UR ADVICE WHAT SHOULD I DO????????”
This shows yet another case of poor management of social media spaces and profiles, a problem that had been rising since social media has becomes the newest way for LGBT people to reach out and link up and so on. I have not used my Tagged in quite a while come to think of it as there are certain features on there that leave my open to exposure apart from someone getting direct access as this case shows by viewing on another device. But the post above goes further than just the typical hunt online but a threat implied that the uncle will have his way in the final analysis by obviously sexual assault. It was suggested to the man who made the post that he should report the matter to the police but he in turn said he was concerned about the repercussions and family fallout if it got to the courts.
His concerns are valid if he does not have any sort of support systems and indeed the patience to fight this in our creaking justice system. If the uncle is advancing hints of violence to get his way then what could he be capable of if he is accused of being gay and pursuing his nephew? Worse yet the man is a police as well and this would not go down well in the squaddie mentality or psychology of the force as well in as far as reputation on his part, the ridicule that could come from this if it goes too public may even cause him to exact violence so as to project strength or bravado. This one is catch 22 situation in my eyes and as for the incest part I am not so sure about that, technically it man on man sex if it happened and children cannot come that way outside of stem cells reprogramming that allows for that without any sexual intercourse.
One of the main purposes of an incest law is to address the children aspect of it and religious or ecclesiastical laws on same as the outcomes can have handicapped offspring as blood lines get too linked with family genes. Others in the social media group suggested he should tell the man’s woman and out him as a freak, others suggested he should try and get a job and move out and not alert him as to where he lives. Family same sex relations are not new as close as cousins, uncles and nephews and even one case some years ago in one of the tabloids (XNEWS) declaring gay sex between brothers allegedly, the item caused outrage nationally as the story spread and led to a backlash against gay men and homosexuality and to a lesser extent a call for keeping the buggery law, as if to suggest that buggery laws are inextricably linked to anal sex by men when heterosexual couples who have men who penetrate women anally.
Sad that the man could not be satisfied with just coming out as gay or technically bisexual if not behaviourally so and not have a predatory imperative, some have asked if he was so “thirsty” for a man that his won relative would be prime target for his advances. This also suggests this man may have had an eye on his nephew all along and now that all has been revealed he can now pounce. The choice is the young man and one hopes this does not escalate into something else more egregious, let us say that this outing did not happen by surprise discovery would this alleged police man would have done as his thirst and urges got more intense? Was the threat meant to be a daring joke or endearment?
Jokes if it was are not to be taken lightly in any way shape or man, when a man declares that kind of thought it can be contemplation and be transformed into action.
Commendations are in order for the young man in openly sharing this and I am in no doubt it was a fabrication given the discourse that ensued in the thread, some in the NGO establishment and JFLAG do not take kindly to these kinds of public discourse on matters, and would prefer things are kept hushed for purposes of being politically correct to sound and look good. What hypocrisy?
