It's Time to Accept Teens' Sexuality

In describing the unpleasant sexually aggressive behavior of some teen-age young women, Quintanilla attributes this to the demographic shifts of the last two decades.

I am under the impression that the underlying causes can be traced to the real estate construction boom of the last two decades.

Rarely has a female of any age passed a construction site without being regaled with unpleasant sexually aggressive behavior from the male construction workers. And since The Times hasn't written articles about their behavior as aberrant or quoted shocked parents who characterized them as "tramps," I assume today's young females simply appropriated society's norms for themselves.
