This article is very annoying! First of all, these university researchers undoubtedly received a big fat government grant (and the U of Calif is notoriously rich) to do a study and conclude the obvious! Second, look at what kids watch on TV, at the movies, and hear in songs on the radio! They don’t need a cell phone to be sexualized. And young people in Middle School are usually becoming acquainted with their reproductive system and very active sexual hormones. Was anyone surprised by their findings??? But let them get in trouble and they’re all “victims.”

Agreed! it seems most never look at the complete picture and have this false belief that children never think about sex until they turn 18, and then a light automatically turns on and suddenly they are aware. They never seem to consider that kids are people too, and different kids become sexually curious at different times, some before others; this is a natural occurrence. There isn’t, nor will there ever be a law that can change this. I think it’s something beyond most peoples ability to comprehend.

They actually had to do a study to figure this one out??? Here’s a better use of the money, pay me one third of what they spent to do this study and I’ll use simple logic and get the same results! What a waste!

This “study” is just a precursor to justify more minors being arrested and registered.

Who cares? They are acting as normal human beings. These laws have nothing to do with reality. They are made by stuck up Christians with antiquated “values” and nothing more. Go read your Bible in a dark room and let the rest of the world that scares you so much go on.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
