Ime 70 so i remember girls being taught they would be housewives,nurses,shop assistants and the like.
One of the participants in the film talked about finding 4-6 year olds sexy. He struck me as being a creep and I cant accept him trying to normalise it. That clip showed him making that comment in his younger days and later on in the video, the camera showed him much older, in front of an audience and being clapped for being there. I wonder what the message was by including him in the film. Perhaps to add shock value, or to test the viewer.

In Freudian psychoanalysis the phallic phase of development, spans from the ages of 3-6. The phallic climbing frames and slides - I canít see that in the UK playgrounds......

Ah! the right wingers would be up in arms

Wasn't it a bunch of moronic, Mirror reading lefties who tried to lynch a Paediatrician because they thought paediatricians were the same as paedophiles? Or were they moronic Mail readers?

In my experience both extremes of the political spectrum can be equally dangerous.

A Hungarian I know says that Atilla The Hun is a national hero of Hungary, and lots of boys are called Atilla!

I missed that story, a disturbing tale. Moronic mirror reading lefties, or moronic mail readers? Tell all

This story goes back probably fifteen or twenty years, and was from a time when paedophiles were getting a lot of attention in the press.

Either the Mirror or the Mail, I cannot remember which, had published an article mentioning a practicing Paediatrician living somewhere near Portsmouth. A bunch of readers who didn't know the difference between a Paediatrician and a Paedophile surrounded his house and planned to lynch him until the police arrived, arrested them and pointed out their mistake.

There is a lot of truth in that. What would be the opposite I wonder?

And who was it that said "Liberalism will result in totalitarianism." There is a lot of truth in that too. For all their warm platitudes liberally really do struggle with the concept that not everyone agrees with them.

Yes; I had forgotten that the Portsmouth attack was not an isolated incident and that there were many others around the country at the time.

Nothing like a story whipped up by the tabloid press inciting violence by those of limited intelligence.
