I assume my mother would hear the resultant sounds and have a look to see if she could see me with my new friends. Wouldn't any parent do that? Just making sure that everything was all right, maybe a wave from the window if the child happened to look their way? Of course. That's what children deserve and parents want to do.
Martin Daubney, a writer for the Telegraph, had a sickening experience recently, when he made the mistake of attempting to say hello to his little boy, at his first school. Martin was passing by the schoolyard on his way to an appointment, just as the kids were let out for break.
As any normal caring father would, he stopped and, because he's a tall man, had a look over the fence to see if he could spot his little boy, maybe exchange a wave or hello.
At this point in the proceedings, the paranoid and groomed English public, lined up at a nearby bus stop, interfered in this completely benign incident, in the person of a 20-something man [most likely not a parent.]
Instead of coming over to Martin and in a low-key, non-challenging way asking "Everything all right, mate?" allowing Martin to explain what he was doing, this hyper-vigilante yelled from the bus stop, got everyone else involved, and left Martin with no other choice but to hurriedly leave.No, men are not all potential paedophiles
This is very sad.
Men have the right to be parents without the fear that any sign of caring on their part will be construed as something unsavory.
The public in Britain need to stop allowing themselves to be manipulated by a small group despicable opportunists who have no real interest in the welfare of children, only in their own ambitions.
But, as long as someone throws the bait, the feeding frenzy will continue.
