Moidered by Quinsey: A Reply to His Comments Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment, Vol. 10, No. 1, 1998 Commentary Moidered1 by Quinsey: A Reply to His Comments William L. Marshall2 I am at something of a loss to reply to Quinsey's comments (see the preceding Commentary). Perhaps with advancing age my wits grow dim, because it is not clear to me in what way Quinsey's remarks represent a commentary on my paper, despite having read and reread both his and my own article. It seems to me that Quinsey is doing two things: (1) he is making rather oblique criticisms of my views, and (2) he is taking the opportunity to advance his own views on both science and sexual offending. The nice thing about the latter is that Quinsey has very interesting and, I believe, valuable views on these matters. Although I disagree with much of what he says, I admire Quinsey's confident and clear expression of his position. However, I consider Quinsey's paraphrase of Lord Rutherford's rather ar- rogant remarks to reflect an unnecessary stance of scientific superiority.
