'There’s justifiable outrage around allegations of rape culture in schools, but rumours could blight a generation of boys'

United Kingdom News, United Kingdom Headlines

If I remember the stats correctly men are almost 100 times more likely to be the victim of sexual assault themselves, than to be falsely accused of committing it. This is the same knee jerk response we always see, just wrapped up in 'won't somebody please think of the children?'


Tarquin has his 'Lord of the Flies' moment recalling that difficult period of his life known as 'attending Eton School for posho boys.' No stars for this misogynist tripe.

How were those girls dressed, perhaps schools should ask the girls to wear skirts that don't show their knickers off. If they don't want to be treated like a slag don't dress like one.

Instead of worrying he's getting smeared, worry about whether you've done enough to make sure it IS unfounded. Talk to your boys early, about consent, about respect, about personal standards.


it’s the generations upon generations of girls whose lives have been blighted.

Sexual assault has blighted generations of girls. One single generation of boys can take the hit.

What a ridiculous take on this story, maybe try some empathy with the real victims 🤦‍♂️

Seems a bit needlessly reactionary. 'Yes, girls have had to endure some horrible treatment in schools, but what about the boys?' False reports happen, sure, and they can ruin lives, but this just seems very tone-deaf within the context.

Innocent until proven guilty.
