I’ll leave you to read the article, but apparently schoolgirl binge drinking is now so bad that it’s starting to exceed school boy binge drinking.
Well now we get our femifolk calling on government action, because it’s girls that are affected!
Alcohol Healthwatch director Rebecca Williams said teenage girls who were binge-drinking risked establishing bad drinking habits for life.
And boys don’t?
Heavy drinkers were also more at risk of sexual and physical abuse, road crashes, unwanted pregnancies and having babies with fetal alcohol syndrome.
But not for boys? Are not boys more at risk of being sexually or physically abused, causing unwanted pregnacies, road crashes when drunk? Or doesn’t that count?
But little was being done to help female problem drinkers, Williams said.
And is anything being done for male problem drinkers?
She called on greater preventative measures, including screening women for drinking problems at GP clinics and hospitals.
You see, what we have is simply a call for more public funding for services to protect girls; but stuff the boys. They can fend for themselves.
Binge drinking – teen binge drinking has been going on for years. I’m not saying it’s cool; but why the emotionally manipulative claptrap? Can girls not fend for themselves? Do they need to be cottonwoolled by nanny-state?
Why the lack of concern for teen boys binge drinking?
Girls can do anything, we’ve spent 30 years telling them. And when they do? OMG! We’ve got to jump in and protect them!
Stuff the boys. We don’t care.
