A city in southern England has become the first to prove that it’s city council is collectively certifiable insane.Following a report commissioned by councillors which recommends pupils as young as eight in local schools be taught: “Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods.” The report adds that “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders”.
The recommendation was adopted by Brighton & Hove City Council as part of an effort to tackle the stigma attached to menstruation. It is not quite clear how politically correct virtue signalling will remove any stigma regarding periods, but teaching pupils politically correct nonsense instead of language, science and humanities will help nothing. In fact, once adolescents find out how much fun can be had with the idea of boys having periods, and how much more fun can be had absolutely crucifying the poor teacher who has to try and teach it, the idea isonly going to make things worse.
Now that the council has agreed to adopt the report’s findings, in sex education lessons in Brighton schools, pupils will be taught that “all genders can have periods”. This is being hailed by LGBT activists as a a victory for transgender rights.
Unfortunately nobody seems to have noticed it is a travesty against the laws of nature. And nobody in mainstream media is likely to point out the irony contain in the fact that activist groups who have told us for the past twenty years that, “You must believe the science on climate change,” are now blatantly disregarding three thousand years of biological study to pander to a left wing sacred cow.
The report gets even further into loonytoons territory when it suggests, “language and learning about periods is inclusive of all genders, cultures, faiths and sexual orientations. For example; ‘girls and women and others who have periods’”. Bins used for menstruation products will be provided in all toilets, appropriately marked with gender inclusive instructions to encourage boys, girls and others who are surfing the red tide not to be embarrassed about their condition.
It also calls for transgender students and pupils to be provided with additional support from a school nurse if needed. We must hope the school nurse is a psychiatric nurse.
Brighton & Hove City Council’s press statement read: “By encouraging effective education on menstruation and puberty, we hope to reduce stigma and ensure no child or young person feels shame in asking for period products inside or outside of school if they need them.
“We believe that it’s important for all genders to be able to learn and talk about menstruation together… Our approach recognises the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary.”
This is the same bunch of left wing idiots that recently released a “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit” to help teachers deal with gender identity issues sensitively. It asks teachers to be respectful and inclusive of children who are questioning their gender, and tells them that purposefully not referring to children by their preferred pronoun or name can constitute harassment. The toolkit also suggests schools adopt non-gendered uniforms so all children feel included, and to reduce bullying. A school not far from Brighton, in the interests of promoting gender fluidity, recently tried impose a uniform ruling requiring boys to wear skirts. The result was that teachers found themselves being bullied by irate parents.
Conservative MP David Davies told The Mail on Sunday that it is “insanity” to require teachers lead pupils to believe that transgender boys can have periods. Davis said: “Learning about periods is already a difficult subject for children that age, so to throw in the idea boys who believe they are girls also have periods will leave them completely confused.”
The problems start at the very beginning. Are ‘trans boys’ boys who want to be girls or girls who want to be boys, and vice versa. From there, even when dealing with adults, the whole transgender thing becomes a quagmire of confusing terminiology. Worse still when men who live as women keep their dangly bits or women become men but retain womb and ovaries just in case they might want to have a baby. With pre pubescent children the most likely outcome of all this is they will recognise what they are being taught for complete claptrap and become completely alienated from school.
Draft Government recommendations say schools are free to determine how they address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, ensuring teaching is “sensitive and age-appropriate”.
