A key question in the following sections will be whether disgust
is reserved for moral transgressions that contain reminders of
physical disgust; that is, those that violate moral codes related to
purity or divinity, which forbid behavior that is polluting, filthy,
inhuman, or profane.

Something that stood out to me was when consensual incest was brought up. Most people reacted to it with disgust but when questioned why it was wrong they said what could be boiled down to "it just is, okay?" Or asking the participants whether masturbating with raw meat is bad, most said yes but again, they couldn't elaborate why it's bad without saying "it's immoral because it's gross." So the big question that needs answering: "Is disgust a viable way to gauge whether something is moral or not?"

To me it's a no-brainer. If we just accepted everything that disgusts us, we end up with modern society. Where scat fetishists and furries are accepted as humans. The problem is that they bring down the rest of society as a whole by exposing themselves and others to acts which are inherently harmful to one's own mental and physical well-being. And as I'm sure most of you are aware, going against the natural law of the world is inherently bad for humankind as a whole.

How did you find this? Do you normally look at psychological studies?

Not at all. I was just thinking about the human concept of morality and the correlation of right-wing ideology being associated with disgust over things deemed unnatural. So I was curious and did my own research.
 
I remember reading about some psych paper maybe a decade ago where they released smelly fart gas to see if people became less tolerant of gays. They did. I bet some of the papers cited have similar findings, I saw one of them had a title like "nice smells make people more generous".

I suspect a few culprits for grossness tolerance
-prosperous societies are equipped and inclined to be more tolerant of gross things. Imagine how much more disgusted people must be when they are regularly hungry, when any more serious contagious illnesses could kill them.
-social integration of society. Say I'm a normie. If X is normalized enough that my [friend/family/girlfriend/children] have friends who are X, I am likely to moderate my opinions on X to be more tame accordingly. This process only goes one way- once something is tolerated to the point that the people around you say "you should just tolerate it, it isn't that big of a deal"
-internet/porn. If people indulge in gross things they sometimes become agents of gross things. Trannies would not be nearly as big a thing without porn, you can look up the relevant research. More commonly, even if you remain normal and unafflicted it is hard to take up the burden that is the first stone. "Uh, incelchud... you touched your penis while thinking about tickling an anime girl... do you have any ground to judge me for [I'm not typing the rest of this but you get the point]" Also I think cringe content is really bad and you shouldn't watch it. You should be completely confused and disinterested when someone tells you about Chrischan or whatever- you need those cringing instincts sharp to keep you safe from the constant cringe of the internet and the world in general. You should not give your cringe detector erectile dysfunction.

Never thought about it but you have a point. It could explain why kiwiniggers are such disgusting crypto fags.
