 These boys were pre-pubescent.  Their motivation could hardly have
been sexual at all.  It was plain, mean harrassment.  The sexual

Really nasty.

Sorry, Herman, I should have said. These were older boys, and sadly, it got worse and worse as time went on. I do appreciate what you're saying though: nasty is nasty, gender aside. :(
