Alfie Patten And Chantelle Graduate From Sex Education Class

ALFIE Patten, 13, claims to have fathered his inamorata Chantelle Steadman’s baby daughter, Maisie Roxanne. Now read on…

The Herald : Old orthodoxies cannot address underage sex

What’s it all about, Alfie? Regardless of whether 13-year-old Alfie Patten is or is not the father of 15-year-old Chantelle Steadman’s baby daughter, the story has set the hare running on the issue of teenage pregnancy.

No story can be a story unless it contains the nugget of an issue. What that issue is depends on your vested interest and prejudices. For teenage boys it is about how 12-year-old Alfie not only pulled an older woman but squired her while they were just getting into masturbation.

The left is quick to draw on the still lamentable quality of sex education in Britain and the patchy quality of what are optimistically called “family planning services”…

The right blames moral decline: “broken Britain”.

So two teenagers have sex is a political matter?

So what to do, Anne Johnstone?

Poor Maisie. What a terrible world to be born into: devoid of morals and awash with greed and “sexploitation”.

Yeah, but…

No wonder, given the continuing coyness about sex… that old Calvinistic reserve, played out in sniggers and euphemisms…

Right. Left. Kak handed.

The tragedy about Britain’s teenage pregnancy debate is that it is so polarised, while both sides wring their hands about 12-year-olds having sex…

Now wash your hands.

The Mirror Brian Reade:  “It’s all about Alfie.”

The claim from 14-year-old boys that they slept with Chantelle Steadman. No  you didn’t. You had a quick session behind the bushes, then went hom for chicken nuggets.”

That man watching you is Brian Reade.

The Independent : “Judge bans further reporting on story of 13-year-old father”
