Abuse anguish

• Mary Kenny's clumsy attempt at outlining a need for categorisation of child sex abuse culminated in her asking if "the subject cannot now be discussed rationally?"

This is an inference that all discussion to date, ie expressions of outrage and disgust, has not been rational. That is insulting to all those poor people who have suffered and are still suffering anguish due to this abuse.
