Forget trust, it’s results that matter

In March 2006 a BBC reporter, after spending months undercover at Foxtons, presented a damning exposé of the firm.

The reporter also found the company forging customer signatures on legal documents and lying to suit its ends.

Where does this shocking language of "predatory" behaviour come from? Are such ideas just the "inappropriate" words of one individual (to cite the Crown Prosecution Service)? History indicates otherwise. So-called "rape myths" and "victim-blaming" of this kind have long roots. We need to look at the past to understand the nature of concerns about "predatory", "sexually experienced" and physically mature girls. By understanding the history of such ideas, we may be able to put an end to their use.
