    I'm not a troll - this is legit, hear me out.

    After 20 years of my life, I think I found out that a relative of mine may be an inbred.

    Basically, I was talking to my mum about our family and I always knew that my auntie (Dede, lets call her) was related to my mum as first cousins. My mum had an auntie who gave birth to Dede and you get the picture. What's disturbing is that I have just found out that my uncle (Bebe, lets call him) is related to my mum as a brother!!!! I had never knew this, I thought they just met on the random one.

    So my uncle and auntie married, had a baby and that's my cousin. Does that make him an inbred? He doesn't have any birth deformities, he just seems normal tbh.

    Not gonna lie, first thing I asked my mum after that was "PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE NOT RELATED TO DAD THROUGH COUSINS OR ANYTHING" - she is not!!

    Again, I'm 100% not a troll, I found out today.

    I know it's shocking I have just found out he is my uncle, but again, my family is very secretive - for obvious reasons i have found out

    Suppose so - i was thinking that there's plenty of fish in the sea so why literally go around the corner?
