From the archives: "Our research demonstrates that sex offenders almost always attack the young. The percentage of female victims who are over 50 is close to zero. In male prisons...heterosexual men target the youngest inmates."
I'm not convinced by this argument. One could suggest youth being targeted bec they're also weaker/more vulnerable
