Madelaine: What a Naughty Teacher!
This shameful liaison does not deserve prison | Barbara Ellen | Comment is free | The Observer
I am not so sure that the article represents the contemporary view. The Observer is middle-class, probably Liberal-Democrat in the purple on the Political Compass. So it was designed for their readers.
There are always exceptions, but surely one of the essential differences between the teenage sexes lies in the onset and manifestation of sexuality. Which is a posh way of saying that teenage boys mainly want sex, while teenage girls mainly want attention. Likewise, while teenage boys are usually sexually driven, teenage girls tend to be validation-driven.
My view was it was only the Scullery Boys and Pony girls (ESFJ) that are sex mad and that the girls are slightly (60-40) worse/better than the boys. In other words, the writer is completely wrong with her facts.
