Life demands of some of us an exemplary public record. The Headmistress with a shady history is a lesson for us all. Teachers are, for all intents and purposes, in our modern societies, surrogate parents; we have all out-sourced our mentor responsibilities to paid professionals in regard to our children. Therefore, teachers, and especially Principals and Headmistresses, are forever judged by their moral behaviour, both past and present. We, most likely, set a higher standard upon these paid professionals than we do upon ourselves and our own kind.
I am reminded of a particularly news-worthy case that came to light quite recently. When a girls’ school headmistress, some two decades earlier, took a part-time job as a phone sex operator, little did she know the photo she emailed when applying for that job would still be on their website twenty years later. The photo in question revealed a lithesome full breasted woman with legs spread wide wearing nothing but a tiny pair of see-through knickers. A great choice for the visual promotion of a service offering aural stimulation for the masturbatory male, but not, I fear, for the moral leader of a Catholic girl’s school.
The Headmistress with A Shady History: A Lesson for Us All
Some among us may say that she as an individual, at that time unencumbered by her now onerous responsibilities, was free to pursue commercial interests on the Girls of Oz phone sex line and should not now be judged for that activity. But, parents of the girls, attending the Sacred Heart Institution for Young Virgins, were not in any way amused to discover that the moral welfare of their children was in the hands of a, once was phone sex operator. They were enraged and demanded the immediate sacking of their headmistress. The school board complied post haste and she was sent packing with the shrill complainants echoing loudly in her ears.
Beware the fury of the sexually repressed moral majority; it has not been that long since the last witch was burnt at the stake. Complex human beings are not wanted in certain professions. Multiple talents and interests are not an advantage in careers such as these. Life experience is not valued when it comes to those in the vicinity of Mary Magdalene and her questionable pre-Christ activities. Young virgins must not be sullied by voices that have urged on self-abusers in no uncertain terms; or they too may come to a sticky end.
