Old-style up­bring­ing

The Scarborough Evening News - - THE VOICE OF SCARBOROUGH -

Oh dear me I am be­com­ing slightly bored by the at­ten­tion of the na­tional me­dia in mat­ters of so-called ‘sex­ual abuse’ when all the at­ten­tion is placed on, what at one time was rea­son­able, ac­cepted be­hav­iour from both male and fe­male mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

I met my wife in the work place when she was 15 and straight out of school, no lessons about sex­ual re­la­tion­ships were on of­fer in the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem, God for­bid if you asked a teacher about their views you would be di­rected to the head­mas­ter for a se­ri­ous talk­ing to, where he would re­mind you that any­thing to do with re­la­tion­ships be­tween the sexes would be dealt with by your par­ents.

In the work­place sex­ual ban­ter, from both sexes, was ac­cept­able.
