Male, Presumed Dangerous

From 2012, a humorous article in the Sydney Morning Herald describes the plight of men who work in the Australian child care industry and more generally public attitudes toward men interacting with children in general. As I say the article is humorous but the points made are very serious. 
Johnson was delighted when the British Airways flight attendant announced he had to move away from the two restless, difficult children beside him.
''A man cannot sit with children,'' she declared.
Whereupon the children stymied his escape by declaring: ''But he's our father.''
