Daniel Rojas asked:

Was Holden abused when he was a child? After he storms out of his Mr. Antolini's apartment following the incident, he says "That kind of stuff's happened to me about twenty times since I was a kid. I can't stand it." I don't know if I'm reading too much into it, although I wouldn't have found it hard to believe if he was indeed abused.
