In today’s episode of Great Moral Dilemmas of the Day, we bring you the tale of Garry Ryan. He’s an Irishman who moved to Texas when he was young. That’s where he met another woman, who became pregnant. He claims he wanted to do the right thing and marry the lass…
But he also claims her parents disapproved. So he took off, and the woman returned to Ireland, where she gave birth to Penny Lawrence 28 years ago.
Penny’s mom would die when she was just four. So she went to live with her grandparents. But they died when she was 18.
By the time she reached 27, she became curious about finding her real father. So last year, she tracked Ryan down in Houston. They began talking by phone. Soon, Penny flew to Texas for a visit, and that’s where our story gets downright creepy.
Both say they were hit by instant attraction when they met. They began to date. Now Penny is pregnant with their child.
We think we can speak for most dads by saying that anyone who has sexual thoughts about their daughter is surely a degenerate. But the couple is couching their romance is psychology, saying their both afflicted by Genetic Sexual Attraction, a shrink term used to describe relatives who fall in love when they first meet as adults.
They know their relationship is illegal, and they worry that the cops may come a calling. But they also say their unborn baby is healthy after three months, and claim they’re victims, not incestuous freaks.
“We are not committing incest, but are victims of GSA,” Penny told Irish Central. “We’ve never experienced a father-daughter relationship, so we’re just
like any other strangers who meet in adulthood.”
Here in the manly heartland of America, we’re not really buying that bullshit. But we’d like to know what you think, dearest reader. (Special thanks to reader Lavender for the tip.)
