What is the difference between supporting homosexuality and incest?

Homosexuality is supported by people because it is a relationship between two consenting adults, But the same goes for incest, so why people find incest wrong?

You can try to argue the difference between homosexuality an incest is that with incest they might produce an unhealthy child but what if they adopt it or what if it's a father and son relationship?

    The difference is that homosexuality has to do with people being attracted to, and being in relationships with, mates of the same sex while feeling no attraction to the opposite sex, while incest has to do with intimate relationships (specifically sexual) between people who are closely related by blood and may be same-sex or opposite sex, and may be fully consensual and loving, or may be forced, coerced, or outright rape.

    As far as support goes, most people have too much of a sense of the "ick" factor when it comes to incestuous relationship no matter how consensual they are.  Like you point out, they very often point to reproduction and unhealthy offspring, but (1) that usually takes a couple generations before unhealthy traits start showing up, and (2) it can be avoided by simply not reproducing, whether or not they choose to adopt instead, and of course same-sex couples can't reproduce with each other anyway.  The way I look at it is this:  as long as the relationship, whether romantic or sexual or both, is fully 100% consensual and neither one is in any way forced or coerced into taking part or feels that the other one is in a position of power or authority over them, so both people completely want to be in that relationship and want whatever sexual activity to take place, and it isn't an adult/minor situation, then I have no problem with it and say to each their own, more power to them.

    Because whomever thinks about his mother/sister... etc, is mentally ill with evidence.

    Yes, let's ignore the fact that most incest involves minors.
