“Thou shalt not think that any male over the age of 30 that plays with a child that is not their own is a paedophile…

Some people are just nice.”

It really is ridiculous the dirty looks a man can get doing this. We always talk about equal rights, not stereotyping people, not judging a book by its cover etcetera, yet this judgement seems to be getting more and more common. Yes there are paedophiles, rapists and dirty perverts in the world; but that does not mean to say that every man is. The majority of men are not any of the above, the fact that if they saw a child crying on their own they would have to stop and think “Should I go and help them? Or will that look bad?” is a disgrace. A man touching a child’s shoulder is counted as sexual harassment these days, even whilst writing that I can’t believe how ridiculous our societies attitudes towards it are! To me this is no different to people saying “every girl who wears a short skirt is a slut”, “He’s camp, he must be a homo” or “Oh my, I sat next to an Arab during my flight, thought he was going to blow up the plane”. Nonsensical!
