It's also the first poster design in my (Simple as That). series. I hope to create a further few more posters like this to help my school and community become more accepting and understanding of others.
And of course, others are more than free to use this poster in their own schools/communities; I simply ask that they contact me so I know what/where it's being used. I can send the full-sized design to you then.

what is wrong with me...
I'd like to assume most people wouldn't really think those things are morally correct (outside of incest, but that's an entirely different debate I'm happily neutral on) but kudos for keeping those current moral issues in mind!
Though social stigma and emotion do play large parts into why these three things are inherently wrong (though I hesitate to use that word, because I believe the word 'wrong' still holds way too much of an emotional bias). Instead, I think I'll use the word 'dangerous' because, for two of them, the dangers are far more immediate than the third.
Lets start with necrophilia, perhaps the easiest to prove how the emotional and social stigma is based in some fair amount of fact. Necrophilia is defined as 'sexual intercourse with or attraction toward corpses'. Lets begin it with the literal understanding of it's meaning: sexual relations with a corpse. Depending on whether the aforementioned corpse is recently or long deceased, there are a number of health issues that can arise from having sexual relations to a corpse. The human body is hose to thousands of bacteria colonies, all of which remain for a time after the body itself has died. Though they may die themselves, a number of other bacteria--the ones responsible for the actual decomposition of the body--takes their place. This isn't even going into the fact that a host of insects are also responsible for decomposition of some bodies as well. The social taboo in this case is based is based on health concerns for whomever is partaking in this activity.
Now for the second one, paedophilia. This one is a little easier, especially if we’re going by facts alone. So what does it mean? It is defined as ‘sexual feelings directed toward children.' Alright, so what is the generally accepted age of a child? A child is defined as ‘a young human being below the age of puberty or below the legal age of majority.’ So, a child is someone below the age of puberty. So paedophilia is the sexual attraction of children, typically beneath the age of puberty. Puberty occurs typically between 12-14 for females, and 10-16 for males.
The fact-based reason that this is wrong lies in the fact that having sexual relations with a child would be emotionally, physically, and mentally traumatizing for them. Remember, those ages above are for THE LIMIT OF PUBERTY, and the majority of those with this fetish will go for children of younger ages, anywhere from toddlerhood up, and there are cases of some with infants. I don’t think I have to describe the physical trauma alone that would come with an adult trying to take advantage of a child, a child who is far smaller, weaker, and with a barely-developed emotional spectrum. Simply put, it’s dangerous; physically, emotionally, and mentally.
If you have issues with my answer or need more clarification, feel free to let me know and I'll happily clarify further.
As for incest, I'd say the defects are enough to justify not doing that.
It seems cruel to risk the integrity of a child, when you know how to avoid it.
sorry not sorry
Indeed... and Canada here is not always so much more open than our southern neighboors.
