We need to start celebrating women for their achievements, rather than their looks, so that girls have positive role models. We need to be introducing programmes in secondary schools to ensure girls know that they are just as capable as their male classmates of pursuing careers in any industries, at any levels.
When I complained to the school, I was astonished that this position was defended under the guise of "we are just trying to protect the girls, as there are bad people out there". When I pointed out they were giving the message that their short skirts would make them somehow culpable if they did get attacked, they struggled to see the relationship.
I like spending time with girls. I enjoy girls. I enjoy the company of girls. There's no way to say it without sounding like a fat, sweaty businessman justifying to his idiot friends why he's spent £680 in a strip club on a Tuesday night. But, in the cleanest of senses, I really like hanging around with girls.
