While Irons expressed he "doesn't have a strong feeling either way", he did suggest same-sex marriage could be manipulated to allow fathers to pass on their estates to their sons without being taxed.

"It's not incest between men", because "incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don't breed," replied Irons.
