Community Safety #fearofcrime #hypervigilance Primary schools are losing more and more male teachers, so how can we retain them? The Conversation August 8, 2017 #strangerdanger #genderpolitics #maleprivilege ?
Guys walk on eggshells now
I relate to the concern about incidental/ accidental contact
But for me it's on public transport
I recall the last time I caught the bus a woman leaned into my knee as she touched her myki
I moved my knee straightaway but felt concerned whether she realised she leaned into me.
I am in fact NOT a Teacher
I know that people are rightly concerned about actual instances of inappropriate touching/ assault/ untoward remarks/ but the over zealous approach to these issues and fear of being misperceived has scared many men shitless
