Boys can have periods too, children to be taught in latest victory for transgender campaigners
School children will be taught that “all genders” can have periods in new sex education lessons, in a victory for transgender rights campaigners.
The advice to teachers was approved by Brighton & Hove City Council as they try to tackle stigma around menstruation.
The new advice follows a council report which said: “Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods”, adding that “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders”.
Bins used for menstruation products will be provided in all toilets for children, according to the report.
It also calls for transgender students and pupils to be provided with additional support from a school nurse if needed.
The report recommends that “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'”.
Brighton & Hove City Council said in a statement: “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… Our approach recognises the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary.”
The same council also recently released a “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit” to help teachers treat gender identity sensitively.
It asks teachers to be respectful and inclusive of children who are questioning their gender, and tells them that purposefully 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, and to reduce bullying.
Tory MP David Davies told The Mail on Sunday that it was “insanity” for teachers to tell pupils that transgender boys can have periods.
He said: “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.”
However, leading doctors have previously recommended that primary school children are taught about LGBT issues.
Earlier this year, the Royal College of Paediatricians and Child Health (RCPCH) urged minister go further in their guidance on sex and relationship classes, which will become compulsory from 2020.
Draft Government recommendations say schools are free to determine how they address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, ensuring teaching is “sensitive and age-appropriate”.
The Royal College said: “There needs to be a clear statement that LGBT people and relationships are part of teaching about healthy relationships in primary school. This can be demonstrated in relation to families – but also it is helpful to children to learn the meaning of terms such as lesbian, gay and bisexual”.

How on earth can a male child have a period. These creature misfits who consider homosexuality normal and spread their crap to our children should be locked up preferably in an asylum for the mentally deranged.
It seems from these crazies that nature has failed us and should we listen to this crap then boys will soon bear children.
I think Mother nature will have something to say about all this!
*A quarter of British men believe that they have man periods.
*26% of men experienced conditions associated with female menstrual cycles.
*Science – it is known that when 2 women live together – their menstrual cycles will synchronize – introduce an male – but not even a male – pump in the scent of a male & BOTH women’s menstrual cycles will immediately un-synchronize – to facilitate PREGNANCY no doubt.
*The male partners of pregnant females are know to suffer/experience the same conditions & including mood swings right along with the pregnant female.
*So I would assume that it is not a BIOLOGICALLY HORMONAL CONDITION that the males are experiencing when they say man periods – but a picking up of / mental mood transfer on the part of the males from the female & we all know that pain is controlled by the brain.
To Bleed Menstrually a man need to have an active UTERUS.
Who ever said that the British were intelligent ??
Charles Darwin went to Madagascar & saw the wondrous magic of diversity.
And then he went home … back to Great Britain & wrote EVOLUTION.
Didn’t he see that it was not simple evolution but the purest form of mathematics that made that divers magic happen.
For the moron that he was …
The crap has been taught in every school & university as GODS OWN TRUTH.
No one has dared to challenge Darwin’s theory of evolution …
Oh, why is that ??
Because there is no one in Great britain who has figured it out YET !!
And even at this late stage when we have accepted that evolutuon is not the how of it – they cling to their bullshit for dear life.
Their old ways
When Britain ruled the world.
TRADITION of a Medieval Time when the world was at its most intellectual.
They didn’t even have plumbing yet.
Maybe one quarter of British men have a psychological problem. I can understand that considering their Royalty and Leaders.
Where do they bleed from, their brain?
