Don't calls girls 'girls' or 'young women' in case it offends pupils questioning their gender identity, schools are told

Teachers at Britain's leading girls' schools have been told not to call pupils 'girls' or 'young women' in case it offends any questioning their gender identity.

Head teachers belonging to the Girls' Schools Association were instructed to use gender-neutral words like 'pupils' or 'students' to avoid discrimination.

The advice issued last week also banned the phrase 'young ladies' and recommended the creation of unisex lavatories.

Caroline Jordan, President of the GSA and headmistress of £33,000-a-year Headington School in Oxfordshire, backed the advice saying it affects an increasing number of young people questioning their identity.

'In assemblies, instead of saying "Girls, go to lessons," staff should consider saying "Pupils, go to lessons," or "Students, go to lessons,"' she told the Sunday Times.

'I do not want anyone to think that girls' or boys' schools are invested in one way of being a girl or one way of being a boy.

'My view is that where you can use gender-neutral language about people that is a good thing,' she added.

The advice was given to the GSA by Gendered Intelligence whose chairman, Jay Stewart, branded the phrase 'young ladies' sexist and 'transphobic'.

Parents criticised the move claiming children should be allowed to 'enjoy their innocence'.

More utterly ridiculous Political Nonsense to avoid "offending" a very small minority of individuals with twisted minds.

That has to be the biggest load of leftist claptrap I have hear in many years. How about these leftist stooges focus on giving these children an unbiased neutral education and let them develop their own identities.

Gender neutral language. "Hey you! Yah, you."

Then how can it be called the "Girls' School Association" any more ??

Maybe it is all this "awareness" of gender identity that is causing the confusion. They seem to be encouraging boys and girls to think that they may be happier as the other sex.

Most people cannot comprehend how evil the left is, and what they really want to do. They really do hate civilisation, hate people and hate humanity, and really do want to destroy it. They want to mess it up as much as they can. Their talk about "caring" and "not wanting to offend" is all delusion, image, and lies, depending on whether they are emotionally or mentally centred or fully conscious of what they are doing.
