Don’t treat young men like sex-crazed monsters

newsboxAlly Fogg, writing in the times, has taken exception to the way young men are being portrayed in the media by Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett (see ‘Porn’s influence is real’ below) and others.

He says, “I see young men desperately looking around and soaking up messages and cultural models for how to behave as a “real” man, many of which are downright toxic. It concerns me deeply that the political narrative that portrays young men as sexually aggressive, abusive and violent can easily become part of the problem. Young men who are at heart compassionate, gentle and kind cannot be well-supported by being constantly told they are the exceptions, when they are very much the rule.” You can read the full article here.
