At least 40 secondary schools in Britain have banned girls from wearing skirts in a bid to cater for transgender pupils. Schools are opting for gender-neutral uniform policies under which boys and girls must both wear trousers.
NO MORE SKIRTS FOR GIRLS?
A majority of pupils in the area now attend trousers-only schools with eight Ipswich schools instituting a gender-neutral policy, it is claimed. Meanwhile Crawshaw Academy near Leeds is ‘consulting on implementing a gender-neutral uniform (trousers only)’, The Sunday Times reports. And Phillips High School in Bury has announced that girls starting at the school this September will have to wear trousers with existing pupils adopting the new policy next year.
The move has been branded ‘crackers’ by one parent, who said there is nothing wrong with the existing uniform for girls.

When Rafi Daugherty of Denver (pictured) went to the hospital for the birth of his first child, he posted a sign on the delivery room door. “I am a single transgender man having my first baby,” it read. “I use he/him/his pronouns and will be called ‘Abba’ (Hebrew for father) by the baby. Papa, Dad, Daddy, Father…are also OK.”
Rafi, 33, wanted hospital staff to be prepared for what they were about to see: a man laboring in bed.
“I didn’t want them to assume that I identified as female because I was having a baby,”he said.Read More
