Even, a necessary lesson:
School girls have been propositioned by men in the UK’s first official red light district, an academy chief has warned as he says he has “grave concerns” about children’s safety.
Pupils as young as 13 have been asked whether they are “open for business” while walking to school, according to Sir John Townsley, chief executive of The GORSE Academies Trust which runs 11 schools in Leeds.
Young women are going to spend a decade or two of their lives being propositioned. True, much of it will be asking for uncompensated, unpaid, activity and sometimes they’ll even be interested themselves. Getting the lesson in early that men will ask seems a useful part of an education.
