School gives students 23 options for gender identity

School gives students 23 options for gender identity

Pupils at a senior school have been given 23 options to define their own gender, in a move which has been welcomed by pupils and parents alike.

Blatchington Mill School in Brighton gave teenagers the survey as part of their homework.

The various options included: girl; boy; gender fluid; agender; androgynous; tri gender; non binary; genderqueer; demi-boy; demi-girl; trans boy and trans girl.

The top public school last week informed pupils that will be able to decide which uniform they wish to wear based on their chosen gender.

Headmaster Richard Cairns told students that uniform codes would be replaced by a ‘trouser uniform’ or a ‘skirt uniform’ for all pupils up to the age of 16.

“If some boys and girls are happier identifying with a different gender from that in which they were born, then my job is to make sure that we accommodate that,” Mr Cairns said.
