British Public School: Boys Can Have Periods Too

In what can only be described as a rejection of biology and reason, the Brighton & Hove City Council in southeast England recently approved LGBT guidelines for its schools whereby students will be taught that "menstruation must be inclusive of all genders," apparently including biological males and transgender females (i.e., boys pretending to be girls). 

Mensturation, however, only occurs in biological females with a uterus. As Merriam-Webster states, menstruation is "a cyclical discharging of blood, secretions, and tissue debris from the uterus that recurs in nonpregnant breeding-age primate females at approximately monthly intervals and that is considered to represent a readjustment of the uterus to the nonpregnant state following proliferative changes accompanying the preceding ovulation."

If you are not a biological female with a uterus, you don't menstruate. 

Nonetheless, the Brighton & Hove City Council's advice to teachers states, "Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods," and "menstruation must be inclusive of all genders," reported The Telegraph in Britain. 

"Bins used for menstruation products will be provided in all toilets for children, according to the report," said the newspaper.  Also, "transgender students and pupils" will be "provided with additional support from a school nurse if needed."

In a statement, the city council said, "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," said the council. "Our approach recognises the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary."

The coucil also recently released a "Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit" for teachers, reported The Telegraph. The kit advises that not calling a child by his/her/its preferred pronoun "can constitute harassment."

The kit also calls for a "non-gendered uniform so all children feel included, and to reduce bullying," said The Telegraph

A transgender male is a biological female who thinks she is a male and may be having surgery to remove her breasts and cosmetically create a fake penis; she also undergoes hormone treatment.

A transgender female is a biological male who thinks he is female and may undergo breast augmentation surgery and have his penis removed to cosmetically create a fake vagina. Transgender females do not have a uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or eggs. 

Non-binary sexuality refers to gender fluidity, where neither a male nor a female gender identity is dominant. 

Binary sexuality refers to two distinct gender identities: male and female.
