    The Trauma Myth (Book) Susan Clancy's book demonstrates that the "harms" that children supposedly suffer from engaging in sexual activity with older people/adults are actually, for the most part, iatrogenic in nature (that is, due to the treatment given by medical "professionals" to those who have "been sexually abused," or else the harms are sociogenic (caused by the attitudes of society towards sex) rather than being due to anything occurring during the sexual activity itself.

    Harmful to Minors (book) Judith Levine shows that the lack of sex education, and society's attitudes, are harmful to minors -- not the actual sexual activity itself (though she irrationally considers certain kinds of sexual relationships "unacceptable" due to age differences, without citing research to back up her claims).

    Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony and the Rape of American Justice by Margaret Hagen reveals how expert psychological testimony is a total fraud, showing how the courts have increasingly embraced not a cutting-edge science but, instead, a discipline that represents a terrifying retreat into fantasy and hearsay; a discipline propelled by powerful propaganda, arrogance, and greed.

    The Moralist (book) Fifty-year-old "spin doctor" Red Rover volunteers for a creative writing mentoring program and falls in love with his twelve-year-old protege Jonathan. Over the next year and a half, as their relationship and the boy matures, Red becomes outraged by the witch-hunt hysteria gripping the nation. When his best friend's house is burned, he decides to act, even if it means threatening his love for Jonathan. [Semi-autobiographical novel.]

    The War Against "Child Molesters" (c. 1989) (pamphlet) contains advice to those under investigation, under arrest, or being tried on "child abuse" charges, and describes the ways the police abuse the one under investigation, arrested, or on trial, and also violate the constitutional rights of the young person who was the one supposedly "abused".
