Daniel Smith talks to Anne Strainchamps about his book, "Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety."
The interviewer, Ms. Strainchamps, seemed to minimize and actually joke about the experience of the author's molestation at age 16 by two women in their mid-twenties. If the genders were reversed (a 16 y/o female having her first "sexual experience" with two mid-twenty males), the tone of that portion of the interview would have likely recognized the "experience" for what it was - sexual molestation. It is essential that we as a society recognize that teen and preteen males are molested by females; that this can have a long term negative effect on the survivor and his future relationships.
