    nothing that deals with teens, sexuality, violence, or violence is simple.  

    It's uncomfortable, but we have to be able to have it.

    I have a fifteen year old, and I will tell you that he is, without a doubt, not a child.  Yet, his behavior is frequently more childlike than his eight year old sister.  

    He is clearly not a man.  I've heard him say things to me that would seem like he is a man, but he isn't.  

    It's a very confusing time for the individual.  

    None of that excuses the behavior of the teenagers.  It's reprehensible, and it points to some of our problems with the internet and how boys and girls treat each other in that environment.  

    I would not want to be a teenager right now.
