With apologies to Alice Cooper, the belief that “only women bleed” is now passé. So says no less an authority than the Brighton & Hove City Council. The Southeast England town’s council advised teachers via a report stating: “Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have.” The report also demanded that “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders.”
Sadly, there is—literally—no longer any way to spoof or parody this insanity. If I mentioned the increasing number of women with prostrate issues or erectile disfunction, many would simply nod knowingly. We are that far gone.
The report also recommends that “language and learning about periods” be inclusive of all “cultures, faiths and sexual orientations.” Did anyone doubt that Irish Catholic lesbian females have periods? The conflation of gender with chosen attributes like faith is a hallmark of the left. It also states: “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.”
Most kids are already uncomfortable enough as it is in sexual education classes without having to “learn” things that aren’t true. Telling the poor youths that boys can have periods too will leave them totally confused… and likely stressed. But the educators don’t care about that. They care about being seen as “woke” and enlightened by a fraction of the population.
Brighton & Hove schools will stock menstruation products in all bathrooms and have been provided with “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkits.” I don’t want to know what’s in those.
The report informs teachers that failure to refer to children by their preferred pronoun or name can constitute harassment. Young kids often have fantastic imaginations and imaginary friends. Now some boys may believe they have a “monthly ‘friend.’” Instead of giving their charges guidance, teachers will be feeding them bullshit. What could possibly go wrong? “Hi, I’m Jack and I’m a girl. I want my pronoun to be “zirx.” And I’m having my period right now. Wanna see my penis?”
Transgender rights activists are racking up victories with Blitzkrieg-like speed, primarily because everyone’s afraid to oppose them. Yet, some things are more important than appearing “woke” to others. The future of our children should be one of them.
There is no question about it: only idiots believe men have periods. Exclamation point.
