Some of (the author's) analysis is supported by students' testimonies, but, as with all anecdotal journalism, one detects self-selection and data contamination at work. One problem is that (the author) cites no longitudinal work on the subject—these girls are still in college—which means a lot of predictive doom and gloom with little to buttress it.
A student interviewed makes an interesting point:
"If there's one thing that I know about adults, it's that they pounce on adolescent sexuality with zeal"
