It's even truer for gay. Read any autobiography of a homosexual, there will be a bit about an alarmingly precocious early-life sexual encounter with an older man, and the older man by all accounts will be initiating without any feedback from the kid. That the adult homosexual reminisces of the encounter as "consensual" has all the telltale hallmarks of pssychological gymnastics to convince oneself it wasn't abuse.
I remember being shot at how brazenly Paul O'Grady (better known as the drag act Lily Savage) talked about an orderly seducing him at a hospital in Liverpool, and it turns out they're all this direct about it. An open secret in the gay community.
