Support for those made of slugs;Letter

IT IS refreshing to read an article celebrating the virtues of maleness (TES, May 14).

Demonising boys is no more acceptable than demonising girls or ethnic minorities.

Boys may be made of slugs and snails but they're not all bad - I know, I used to be one.
