The Swedish Liberal party’s youth wing proposed legalizing necrophilia and incest Sunday during the group’s annual meeting in Stockholm.
According to the motion filed, two consenting siblings 15 years of age and older should be allowed to engage in sexual intercourse while sex with a human corpse should also be legalized so long as the deceased gave written permission prior to passing.
Speaking with Swedish news site Aftonbladet, Liberal Youth leader Cecilia Johnsson painted the move as a progressive step forward for the Scandinavian country.
“We are a youth organization and one of our task is to think one step further,” Johnsson said.
Johnsson stated that although most of society views the practices as “disgusting,” such acts should not be outlawed by the government.
“I understand that it can be seen as unusual and disgusting but legislation can not be based on it being disgusting,” she said.
“We don’t like morality laws in general and this legislation is not protecting anyone right now.”
In regards to necrophilia specifically, Johnsson argued that people should be allowed to fornicate with the dead so long as arrangements are made beforehand.
“It should be your own decision what happens with your body after you die, and if that happens to be that you want to bequeath your remains to a museum or to science, or if you want to bequeath your remains to someone to sleep with them, then that should be OK,” she added.
The group’s proposal immediately put several former and current members of the mother party on the defensive.
“Liberal Youth of Sweden focuses on publicity, but hardly the issues that determines our, and Sweden’s future,” former Liberal MP Carl B. Hamilton said on social media. “Surely, you must understand that people are laughing at your liberalism, you nitwits?”
Hamilton also quipped over whether or not the youth would focus on bestiality next.
“And what other challenges facing society is on the top 100-list for Stockholm’s Liberal Youth? Sex with hippos?” he said.
Despite the shocking subject matter, the group’s move is unsurprising to many given the growing effort by some liberals to normalize behaviors deemed reprehensible by the rest of society.
For example, left-wing news outlet’s such as Salon have spent the last several months attempting to convince readers that pedophilia is merely a sexual orientation and not a mental disorder.
“In essence, your brain knows what it likes and isn’t going to take no for an answer,” self-described pedophile Todd Nickerson wrote last September.
