Teacher Gender Requirement C.17.11.26

I read with amusement how the teachers in the UK have been told not to call female students girls as it reminds them of their gender. This also applies to boy.

I have no difficulty with gender identity regardless of its make up, but I do stumble with the use of the English language identifying a gender.

I have to disagree with the assumption it is gender offensive because it isn’t. I think if there are in between genders then we need to address a new English word to accommodate these identities rather than dismissing the obvious genders.

I understand it is required to use a gender-neutral word, even in the case of an all-girl classroom like people, students or pupils.

I think this subject has gone to extreme and people need to be less paranoid.
