    Must admit that some of the skirts worn by youngsters on my bus are enough to make me blush.

    I love a bit of leg but this is just wrong with the age of these kids. Trousers seem a sensible choice.

      No, not at all. You've missed the deeper point I'm trying to make. Transgendered pupils can be male to female, or female to male. So why are they forcing a historically male item of clothing on all pupils in order to cater to only one kind of transgender person, rather than trying to accommodate both types.

      And, as a deeper point, which is an extension of this, why have we as a society got to a stage where no one bats an eyelid when a woman wears a historically male item of clothing, yet if a male wears a historically female item of clothing, they get a load of abuse for it?

      Both points are intrinsically linked... although I suspect such thinking may be a little deep for you.
      Very good.
      The reason they are all wearing trousers is because some girls wear their skirts too short and they can't seem to stop them. So putting everyone in skirts wouldn't really solve the problem, would it.
      Whilst deep thinking can be appropriate at times, in this instance it seems to have lead you down the wrong path.
      It's not as complicated as you seem to think.
      Nearly.

      From the Telegraph atricle on the same:

      Explaining why he brought in the uniform change, headteacher Mr Smith said: "Pupils have been saying why do boys have to where ties and girls don't, and girls have different uniform to boys.

      "So we decided to have the same uniform for everybody from Year 7. Another issue was that we have a small but increasing number of transgender students and therefore having the same uniform is important for them."

      Speaking about concerns raised by parents over how skirts were being worn, he said: "We know the current uniform is not necessarily worn as respectfully as it should be.

      "There were problems with decency and a number of issues raised by people in the community about how students were wearing uniform."
      Is @bashlsdir the Telegraph's proof reader?

      Another issue was that we have a small but increasing number of attention seeking students and parents and it has become apparent the majority of normal kids should have to bow to the perceived needs of the minority.

      I think many people on here seem to have grasped the wrong end of a stick here concerning gender neutrality. In a recent BBC documentary they posed the question is the way we treat boys and girls in childhood the real reason we still haven't achieved true equality between men and women in adult life? And could stripping away the pink and blue - and the other more subtle ways that boys and girls are shaped to be different - be the way to raise kids with abilities and attitudes that are the same regardless of their gender? They took over a class of seven year-olds from Lanesend School on the Isle of Wight, stripping away pink, blue and other less obvious manifestations of traditional gender roles from the class room. At the beginning of episode one, the children underwent psychometric tests to assess their perception of sex and gender. It was shocking that despite their young age many of the pupils already perceive a significant difference between the two sexes. Every girl but one said they believed boys are ‘better’ than them, with one girl Tiffany commenting “men are better at being in charge” and another Kara explaining “girls are better at being pretty”. Clearly that is not the case and at the end of the experiment it was fascinating to see how the girls and boys perceptions had radically changed.

      That's true though.

      Men make better leaders and women make better super models.

      Could you supply some empirical evidence that men make better leaders?

      I can.

      It's called history. Sure there's been some decent female leaders and some terrible male leaders throughout history but overall men have lead humanity from the dark ages to the technologically advanced world we live in today.

      We're talking about the %'s not in absolutes.
