It's a flawed analogy. They can go to a different site, or to no site at all, but they cannot go to a different school without divine intervention (parents). Also, commenters here are older, old enough to know better.

All analogies are flawed to some extent. I'm responding to this one because, by putting it in emotional terms like you have, you overemphasize the harm to the one, and don't take into account the loss to the rest of the readers of the site.
