From Madison, Virginia, USA:

A 14 year old boy in the middle school where I teach has diabetes. He uses this as an excuse for his behavior, which includes inappropriately touching girls, and making sexually explicit comments. Can diabetes in any way cause this behavior?


Diabetes does not cause behavior such as this and should not be used as an excuse for such behavior.
