• I am puzzled by Mary Kenny's attempt to sanitise and cleanse the catch-all term 'child abuse' of its emotional content.
Apart from ameliorating her own personal discomfort, I don't see why it's an issue. It seems to me to be a crude attempt to censor, but why? What is to be gained by a "rational discussion" of the type she envisions?
Ms Kenny wants people to calm down and rationally discuss an irrational act.
