Teenage dating in the 1950s

I’ve written for the Telegraph before about how almost every aspect of the man-child interface has been blighted by the seeming omnipresence of paedophilia.And with every Jimmy Savile or Rolf Harris front-page expose, it’s getting worse.These “utterly irresponsible” and even “borderline criminal” teen tips encouraged pubescent girls to “flirt with friend’s dads” in return for life’s essentials, such as “swanky” holidays to St Tropez, or invites to “country weekends”.Sadly, we live in an age where the rabid, paedophilic paranoia surrounding Operation Yewtree stalks our land in a way that's reminiscent of how Mc Carthyism hunted out reds under the beds in 1950s Cold War USA.Most Americans tried their best to allow their children to enjoy their youth while they were slowly prepared for the trials and tribulations of adulthood.Although child labor practices still existed, more and more states were passing restrictions against such exploitation.

A tiny minority of men are grotesque sexual predators who deserve to be jailed for a very long time.

In today’s schools, increasingly we are seeing that the power is with the pupils.

For this reason, we’re also seeing record low numbers of men applying to be primary school teachers – and record numbers leaving the secondary school profession altogether.

It was interesting, and ultimately depressing that, amid the frenzied Teen Tatler-bashing yesterday, not a single female voice spoke out with that much-needed message.
