(Truly upsetting content, btw. Click the Io9 link your own risk.)

It's been a while since I really delved into Io9 beyond the movie reviews and open channel posts, so I have to ask: Is this normal reporting/reaction from the commentariat? I haven't been this freaked out by a thread since...well, yesterdays comments on the Madonna article on Jez, but still...WTF?! And it seems to be largely ignored. Welp, I'll sacrifice any potential ungraying because...shit.

If someone wants to correct me or reassure me about Childrens Services, that's fine too. I'm at a loss.
