Some fair comments, Mishelle. For me, the style of the article mirrors that of many other such journalistic pieces in the same genre, and simply reflects good writing - for which its author deservedly was nominated for an award. Yes, fair point, looking at child porn is in some sense (especially legal/moral) "offending". And I noticed the same apparent contradiction that you mention too - it would be interesting to put it to Elizabeth and see how she responded. Perhaps she'd say that the few who don't grow out of it are those who can be prevented from continuing. I wonder too exactly what percentage of potential offenders develop their urges later on in life - I haven't looked into the stats at all so don't know much about under-reporting. Yes, perhaps her thinking is wishful, but it is at least worth trialling; I give her kudos for exploring a new possibility.
