As more girls today are seeking to “transition” to become transgender boys, a town in England has advised its sex education teachers to tell students as young as nine that “all genders” can have periods.
The Brighton & Hove City Council has recently issued new guidelines advancing what is referred to as a “#periodpositive charter approach” that supposedly is designed to eliminate the stigma around menstruation.
The council’s new guidelines were issued on Dec. 3 and will impact what is taught to students as early as grade four (8-9 years old). The guidance states that “trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods.”
“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.’”
The council has ordered that waste “bins for used period products” should be “provided in all toilets” for children.
After initial criticism of the guidelines, the city council, which oversees dozens of area schools, defended the new guidance in a statement to Mail Online, saying that the council is only “encouraging effective education on menstruation and puberty.”
The council’s guidance comes as previous reports indicated last month that there were over 40 students at a secondary school in Brighton who identify as a gender different than their biological sex.
