I think that if it alerts young women and girls to the dangers of men who pretend to be boyfriends but gradually enslave and pimp them; if it gives them the confidence to believe their fears and concerns will be listened to by those in authority; if they know the early signs rather than being in too deep before they feel they can ask for help - then I don't care if the far-right jump on the bandwagon, or if any group are upset or offended by the series.
The hope is that a drama might reach, inform and empower vulnerable young people in a way that news never will, and prevent such exploitation.
Maria, it is essentially the same question as I answered a couple of nights ago, and I was happy my answer captured my views. So why make a pretense of changing a few words round?
I'm not going to apologise to "Dianne" for focusing completely on the victims, the most important people in this story, and the people she ignores and doesn't care about.
Of course I utterly condemn anyone who abuses children, whether Muslim (as all those convicted in Rochdale were), or not. But "Dianne's" only interest in this tragedy is the ethnicity and religion of the criminal abusers. She doesn't care about the victims.
Once more for "Dianne" who seems unable to read and comprehend a simple sentence.
"I utterly condemn anyone who abuses children, whether Muslim (as all those convicted in Rochdale were) or not."
But "she" doesn't want me to condemn them for being abusers, "she" wants me to condemn them for being Muslim. Which shows the difference between us - I think their crime is abusing and exploiting children. "She" thinks their crime is being Muslim.
