Schoolgirl Fancy Dress Race ‘Linked To Rape’

Anyone who reads the pages of the Escort Wales blog knows that we are not ones to be politically correct for the sake of it. However, when it comes to safety of men and women everywhere you can never be too careful.

This is why we found the following story coming out of Raleigh, North Carolina has pretty much split the office down the middle.

Organisers of a 5k race that encourages women runners to dress like schoolgirls, have decided to cancel the event after a backlash from members of the local community.

‘Inner Schoolgirl’

The Hillsborough Street race, which invited runners to “show off their inner schoolgirl and nerd sides” in a 5k and pub crawl, was first approved by the Raleigh City Council in March.

However, Paula O’Neal, a former Raleigh police captain who organises other local races, told the council she questions “the message that is being sent and endorsed by the City of Raleigh due to the increasing problem of rape and violence against girls in the schools and on college campuses.”

It seems that certain council members are extremely happy with this turn of events. Bonner Gaylord and Mary-Ann Baldwin lauded the news on their Twitter pages, with Gaylord adding “congratulations Raleigh.”

My Opinion

OK, I will tell you where I stand. I’m not sure how we jump from women running around in schoolgirls outfits, to an encouragement to rape? Maybe it’s because I’m not female, or a rapist, but I don’t see the problem.

When I see a Cardiff escort in a schoolgirl outfit, it is a fantasy and I enjoy myself. But that doesn’t mean I am going to get my mask and duck tape out and hang around the local school. I wont go spouting off statistics, but I’m sure I read once that rape was about power, not sex, to many offenders.

I do realise that there will be many people out there who disagree with that theory. As I said, it’s just an opinion.
