the baggy trousered misanthropist

missives issued from the lair

An initiative to introduce healthy food to kids in schools resulted in parents handing burgers through the school fence. The mind boggles at what might happen if Porn Ed makes it through parliament. 

Teaching children the ‘impact’ of pornography is one of those ideas that sounds perfectly plausible, indeed necessary, given the petrifying availability of hardcore porn on the internet. Helping kids to disseminate the message behind porn, gender stereotypes and how they are manipulated could, at the very least, introduce the concept of questioning what the world presents as sexuality to young minds.

However, given the ineptitude displayed by the government, social services, school governers and even some parents when implementing a system to provide kids with proper nutrition, one can’t help but fear how this would pan out in practice.
