The subject of our boys and young men in society who have been marginalized, left out in the cold, shown up by their female counterparts, not doing well in school, disenfranchised, spoilt, has been explored.
We’ve heard it all about our boys and what should be done to help them, socially, academically and emotionally.
Somehow though, I don’t think enough has been said about the state of many of our girls. Long gone are the days of pretty maids all in a row and of what little girls are made of - sugar and spice and everything nice.
Well, happily, most still are, but there are some little terrors in our midst, pretty little cherubs with eyes of innocence, hearts of Sirens, lips of seduction and skin of velvet, who can teach adults a thing or two about life.
