"That great explorer of taboos, Sigmund Freud, heard patients discussing abuse during their childhood, but eventually disbelieved it concocting convoluted, less disturbing, explanations about why they said what they did. Even he shied away from a reality which pretty all of society shrank from until relatively recently."
