UK School District: “Boys” Can Also Have Menstrual Periods

In a move one member of Parliament has called “insanity,” schools in Brighton and Hove in East Sussex, England will now teach elementary-age students that menstruation is not “gender-specific.”

This follows the institution of the Red Boxes program, which will provide “period products” for children in all schools. The Red Boxes program is a “national voluntary organization” specifically aimed at addressing “period poverty,” or the inability of some girls due to limited financial resources to acquire things like tampons and absorptive pads needed to manage menstruation.

The measures were approved December 3 by the “Neighbourhoods, Inclusion Communities & Equalities Committee” – or NICE – of the Brighton & Hove City Council.

According to the NICE guidelines available online, schools are to speak in an inclusive manner to all students about periods or menstrual cycles.

The guidelines include these statements:
“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.’”
“Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods.”
“Periods are something to celebrate and we can see this in ceremonies and celebrations across the world.”

This is just biologically false.

This madness has to stop. Boys, don't menstruate.

We are biologically male and female, there are very small numbers of abnormalities resulting in hybrid combinations... much like there are some people born with 6 fingers. In no situation do boys menstruate.

There are small percentages of the human population that are gay or transgender. Gender roles can be dramatically different depending on culture and history. Even with this fact BOYS DON'T MENSTRUATE.

When did school systems abandon science?
