OK, maybe not everything, but a great deal of what's wrong with the world is contained within one fifteen-year-old's (genuinely) innocent[1] question:

"How can she have been raped? She wasn't awake to say no."

Thankfully, there was a good teacher on hand to explain (and write it up later). But still....

[1] in the sense "without knowledge or guile". The child had never previously been taught better.

Well. Good thing there are older people around to explore that question a little. 15 is really very young.

15 is very young, but also quite old enough to have been given the basic concept of consent.

Particularly the idea that being asleep means you don't have to give it... there are worrying ideas about respect for oneself and for other people there.
