UK schools to teach children that boys can have periods too
Brighton & Hove City Council has issued new menstruation guidance for primary schools which says that children as young as 8 should be taught that "all genders" can have periods in new sex education lessons .
The guidance follows a council report which says: "Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods ..menstruation must be inclusive of all genders .. 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... 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".
Tory MP David Davis told the Mail On Sunday it was "insanity" for teachers to be explaining the concept of transgender boys having periods to eight-year-olds... "Learning about periods is already a difficult subject for children that age, so to throw in the idea girls who believe they are boys also have periods will leave them completely confused" .
The same council also recently released a "Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit" to help teachers treat gender identity sensitively. The Kit tells teachers that not referring to children by their preferred pronoun or name can constitute harassment.The toolkit also recommends schools adopt a non-gendered uniform so all children feel included .
