They must sit around the 'boardroom' table shitting themselves about getting sued if they don't jump through the leftie liberal PC hoops being set before them.

The word "GIRLS" remains emblazoned on the sign yet the word may not be uttered once entered. silent

I think it must be raging dyke type lesbians who are making these ridiculous rules and ramming them down everyones throats.
If anyone is offended...tough...I am offended that the word 'gir'l applied to a girl is becoming offensive to some. Rolling Eyes

The school has a really good reputation, its sad that they are going down this ridiculous route to offend the many just to placate the tiny majority.

What I don't understand is all this pc crap is happening so transgender people wont feel ostracised by society, yet transgender people are craving to be the known as the opposite sex they are.
There is a post op transgender woman on a TV programme at the moment, and she says over and over again she is a WOMAN....and no one is arguing against that.
How would she feel if it became wrong to actually call her a woman after all the emotional and physical pain she (and others like her) has been through to identify as one?

So what are you supposed to call girls now? How about the majority who are girls won't they be offended about being called something else?

Well, quite. And what happens when you get out in the real world and get called a girl?

Bullshit talks and watch the money walk.

I suspect this will hit their funding as parents pull their daughters out and seek alternative establishments

grin angel

I have to laugh at some daft twats labelling that kind of p/c crappola "lefty/liberal/lesbian" bulldust -- instead of plain old unthinking p/c bullshit ...

Especially considering how those "Grammar" schools are the conservative bastion of a prim-and-proper Church of England education..

I cannot be doing with this type of shite. I am a female and I like being female - in fact I celebrate my very femininity. I don't care if some girls want to be called "it" or "Bob" or "flibbety flob job" - but don't punish others for using a term that is universally fucking recognised and is actually, factually, correct.
