I agree. It is very dangerous that our profession is so involved in diagnosing sexual pathologies in children without any information about the wide range of sexual expression in healthy children. None of us would go to a surgeon who purported to diagnose and treat the pathology of some body part without him/her having data on that body part when it's healthy.
In addition to re-examining our assumptions about childhood sexuality, our profession should have the courage and intellectual integrity to examine how it is that so many practitioners have agreed to diagnose and treat an apparent pathology under these egregious circumstances.
