One of a number of researchers you did not mention and who has also swum against the overwhelming tide of irrational thought is Susan Clancy, author of The Trauma Myth, who at the risk of her career, also reached the conclusion that, absent force, early sexual experiences do not cause trauma or even fleeting emotional upset. Only when the individual, as an adult, learns of society's current views does he reinterpret the experience negatively. But for the hysteria surrounding the topic, more research done with strict scientific protocols would be possible and would lead to quite different conclusions from those informed only by unexamined prejudices and hateful agendas.
