It has been quite a while since I read a mainstream media article when the reporter's opinion alone truly sickened me but the sweeping generalisation that Mr Mark Lawson makes is one that is evidently imbued with his twisted personal perceptions as he suggests that the abduction phenomenon is no more than the externalisation of repressed memories of child abuse.
“The final rationale is that spaceship-spotting is an outward expression of inner fears. For instance, many of those who claim to have been abducted by aliens report the experience of being anally or genitally probed. You don't need to rent rooms in Vienna to guess that a memory of extraterrestrial interference may have replaced that of a human encounter, although it may well have involved being carried out of their bedroom in the middle of the night…..In Britain now, the likeliest cause of these reports is fear of a different kind of penetration ….”
Forgive me for not quoting the entire article…..
