"Still waiting for the government legislation on this stopping teachers from being named unless guilty."

Why stop at teachers?

Though this report is designed to raise a wry smile I think it highlights a deep seated difference in the socialisation of men and women. The stories about DV and Politics are both in areas where women are encouraged to complain but not to take responsibility. I think this is part of a very broad problem. I suspect this is the reason that the women who challenge feminists sacred cows are often successful people themselves(people who have taken responsibility for their own rise rather than waited for a qota). It has always struck me that in surveys of crime men tend to have a fairly realistic view of their risks, while women vastly over estimate the risks in general and to themselves. In America they coined the phrase "entitlement princess" to describe this miss match between expectations and the belief that others are responsible for delivering on these.
