Sparkle is against raping ten year olds. Some boys need to be put up under the jail. In Queen Bees and Wannabees, the author said an explanation for these sorts of attacks is too much masculinity. Basically boys are pushed into acts beyond their comfort zone by pressure to prove they are real men not girls or 'fags'. Add to this the fact that many boys may get only an education in the mechanics in school, and the rest is made up by talk with peers who are steeped in boy culture and maybe they have seen some porn. Learning about sex through porn is like learning how to drive a car by watching the Fast and the Furious. You aren't taught the rules of the road(respect your partner, learn nonverbal signs of 'no', not all women like the same thing) and what you do see about the road and driving is very unrealistic.
With all this, in some cases, a tragedy can occur.
