I don't think it's okay for men to have sex with little boys. I don't think it's okay when men drive boys to suicide for kicks, and call themselves "healers". I don't think it's okay for up-and-comers in the field of holistic health to turn a blind eye to the sexual assault of minors on the grounds that their careers are more important. I haven't read the book, because the man who wrote it isn't fit to breathe the same air as I do, much less speak to me on paper or in person. I think he would do better writing long letters to "Mel" and a number of other boys whose lives he has derailed and explain that, "No, Dr. Phil Hanisch could not hear your voice if you talked about him when he wasn't present; that, no, he couldn't burn a hole through you with his stare; and, no, he couldn't make a clock run backwards, that only worked with one clock and it was defective." I think Dr. Wong's colleague Mr. Schenk should wake up to the fact that his inability to disengage from the men who molested him, or from the men and women who condoned that molestation, obstructs any actual healing he may have taken a course or two in. Healing doesn't come from those who are fundamentally sick.
