All genders have periods, English school district says
Basic biology has been routinely called into question as transgender activists have made significant inroads in what children are taught about human bodies and biological processes.
A school district in England announced earlier this month that children as young as 8 would be taught that "all genders" have monthly periods.
The Brighton & Hove City Council issued guidelines on Dec. 2 advancing what is called a “#periodpositive charter approach” for the purpose of eliminating the stigma around menstruation.
“Language and learning about periods is inclusive of all genders, cultures, faiths and sexual orientations,” the guidance reads. “For example; ‘girls and women and others who have periods.’”
Among the critics of the guidance was conservative parliamentarian David Davies, who told the Daily Mail that it amounted to “insanity.”
“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,’ Davies was quoted as saying.
