Your mother seems awfully young Jimmy

It’s not really a topic that I would like to write about, paedophilia. However, it appears to be what Jimmy Savile has been tagged with. The usual formula of “allegedly” having been abandoned, on the understandable grounds that he’s dead. Everyone is quite rightly slagging off the BBC – who we pay for – for effectively aiding and abetting his activities.

Most people’s understanding of paedophilia – which bizarrely is never out of the media – relates to young children, an evidently heinous crime. Teenagers below the age of consent though, are fair game on the BBC and elsewhere in the media, depending on their mood. For example:

PS: a few days later a related theme is nicely explored, here and here.
