Why should they have said no?

On Greta van Susteren's show Friday night on the RepublicanFox News Network, the guests were talking about the recent cases of the women who had had affairs with young children. One woman (whose name I can't remember) played a bit of "blame the victim" by saying that these boys should have just said no.

As a society, we are telling kids like these to NOT say no. Sex education programs are saying "You're going to have sex, and there's nothing wrong with having sex when you do want it, so we're going to tell you how to do it." Modern culture teaches kids that sex, especially sex outside of long-term committed relationships, is natural and desirable, and should be wanted and obtained whenever possible.

Simply put, these kids were offered what they were told they should want. We shouldn't be the least bit surprised that they took what was offered.
