Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige explore the sexual politics behind the meaning of "boys being boys." What are the implications of that viewpoint?
Ramani looks at the inherent power imbalances of sex, and how they don't excuse unwanted advances. Silvia chafes at normalizing boys' aggressive behavior, because that means victimizing girls is also "normal."
An expert on childhood abuse (and a former graduate student of Dr Ramani's) reveals the three factors that lead sexual abusers to perpetrate in the first place.
Then, a listener asks tough questions about whether child abusers both underage and adults – can be rehabilitated. Our expert weighs in, and Ramani explains how intra-family abuse can create "a vast storehouse of lies."
An episode full of tough but important topics.
Dr Ramani Durvasula (@doctorramani) is a licensed clinical psychologist, a Professor of Psychology, and the nation's leading expert on narcissism.
