Love Island-obsessed teenage girls are undermining MeToo cause, claims headmistress

Why will people act as people instead of doing their duty to the cause?

Teenage girls risk undermining the “Me Too” movement by focussing on “trivial” things like make up and Love Island, a leading headmistress has said.

It is hard for women to be “taken seriously” when they spend their time “glorifying” pursuits which are “insignificant at best”, according to Jane Lunnon, headmistress of the £18,800-a-year Wimbledon High School.

  1. It used to be the Trot teachers in the inner London Comps who used to come out with balls like this; now it has spread to the private sector too.

  2. You would hope there was a middle ground between trash TV and denouncing men in public show trials, but Mrs Year Zero doesn’t seem too interested in it.

  3. Excellent comments Rob. I would be most aggrieved to fork out the best part of £20k a year for my daughter to be told her choices are fake tan, slutting up and vajazzles or a lifetime of hating and despising men.

  4. One would have thought that “a leading headmistress” might have copped-on by now that teenagers are shallow, obsessed by fashion and basically silly…

    Most of them manage to grow out of it, the rest vote Labour.

  5. Its a very old theme, played out well for example by Tolstoy with Prince Andrei and his wife Lise. Tolstoy has Lise die in childbirth which hints at where the author stands on the matter but also is the kind of drama that love island would be criticised for taking it too far.

  6. She’s exactly the sort of modern bitch the Democrats are playing to.

    They know Kavangh is innocent, they know that anyone with a brain knows he’s innocent and they are effectively saying that they can fuck up anyone who isn’t a leftie just by making crap, unbelievable allegations.

    Of course, if you are a leftie or one of their protected species, you can’t be guilty of anything because it’s just a smear by the fascists.

  7. @ Rob: “It used to be the Trot teachers in the inner London Comps who used to come out with balls like this; now it has spread to the private sector too.”

    Absolutely. I have a friend who’s two kids go to private school. The older (boy, 13 years old) came home a couple of weeks ago to tell his dad that Head of English had told the class that “… any far right wing views are going to be reported”. To his credit, his lad firstly asked if any far left views should also be reported and the teacher said that their were no plans for that. He then went on to tell her that the extreme left have killed far more than the extreme right, and she disagreed and walked off.

    I bet he is on a list now, at that institution.

    The march through the institutions continues unabated: looks like Ecksian solutions will need to be applied to the private education sector too.

  8. Apologies for obvious spelling mistakes – I should bloody well check before I post (what would the Head of English say?!)

  9. “It used to be the Trot teachers in the inner London Comps who used to come out with balls like this; now it has spread to the private sector too.”

    Yes and no – private girls schools would traditionally been anti-Love Island/looking like a WAG in the old days too, its just that the reason for their antipathy then would have been how common and vulgar it was, not that it was standing in the way of Social Justice…….

    There are no lack of photos of Ms. Lunnon on the internet. She’s handsome in her own way, and appears to put some time and care into presenting herself as such.

    Want to know one of the surest signs you’re turning into an Old Fart? Start bitching about how Today’s Kids are presenting themselves to the world.

    Ms. Lunnon has just punched her ticket to Geezer City.

    Probably that spelling [and grammar] are tools of white males to enforce the patriarchy and white male privileged.

  12. “It used to be the Trot teachers in the inner London Comps who used to come out with balls like this; now it has spread to the private sector too.”

    It’s a private sector that’s become more and more regulated by the state. Which means you get the actors that fit with the state.

  13. How can schoolgirls add to or support MeToo unless they have been illegally groped (etc)??

    Otherwise, it’s just some stupid bitch exuding this week’s politically correct vapors.

    Assuming the headline captures the substance of her quote, she should be sacked forthwith.

  14. I haven’t watched the reboot (didn’t know there was one) but she sounds like the strict headmistress from the St. Trinian’s movies.

  15. Bloke in Tejas – much thanks for introducing that strip. I’ve now wasted an entire hour of valuable time, with promises of much more wasted time in the future.
