Slippery slope

Would anybody like to go on record arguing against polygamy, incest, pedophilia? The ink on the gay marriage decision has barely dried, and we already have (apparently serious) calls for legalizing all three. [I see polygamy as a done deal, btw — notwithstanding the smug lecturing, as recent as May 2015, that “Gay Marriage Doesn’t Open the Door to Polygamy”.]

So nevermind polygamy — heck, I can’t even be bothered to mount an opposition. But what about incest and pedophilia — anybody willing to advance any principled arguments against these? Tell me why these are inherently wrong, without appealing to the Bible or the yuck factor. Careful though: you could get fired from your job ten hears from now.
