What happened at Penn State then?

A total travesty perpetuated by people who cared more about their program, "legacy", privileges, and reputation than they cared about the safety and welfare of the children.

Yet there are people in the world who think that those young children should be able to consent to sex and not hold adults responsible for their part.

I got news for him and his ilk, children are not capable of consenting to some acts. He uses the 12 year old boy with the 30 year old teacher example as one where the teacher shouldn't have been prosecuted. Also adults - especially ones in trusted or authority positions - can manipulate children into thinking things are their own idea/fault/responsibility.
