UK school tells boys: No shorts — wear skirts instead

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

Banning boys from wearing shorts is a stupid move in itself. Chiltern Edge Secondary School in Oxfordshire has just done exactly that – meaning boys are going to come home with grass-stained trousers this summer, after playing football at lunch time. But this school has taken the insanity a step further.

Chiltern Edge has told male students that if they don’t want to wear trousers, they should wear skirts instead. Their new uniform policies explicitly states all students must choose between trousers or skirts.

Alastair Vince-Porteous, a father of a male pupil, contacted the school to ask if his son could wear tailored shorts. He was told by the school that their uniform policy was now ‘gender neutral’, and he could wear a skirt if he wished.

What kind of insanity is this? In temperatures reaching 26 degrees C, male pupils will either have to swelter in polyester trousers, shirts, and jumpers (come on, let’s face it, our parents all bought us the polyester uniforms) – or totally embarrass themselves by wearing women’s clothes.

The insanity has long been in our schools – our teaches are controlled by the far-left National Union of Teachers after all – but now the insanity is visible. Children are being directly affected in a way they can see, and while it’s laughable, stupid, and frankly appalling, it might just be the thing we need to prove our point.

When teachers are gently indoctrinating in schools, but giving students the freedom they crave at lunch time, letting them blow off steam in the canteen and run around in the school grounds, I doubt kids will kick up much of a fuss. Who cares what history they’re taught about, if they can sit and watch the clock and play with their mates at lunch?

But boys being forced to humiliate themselves if they don’t want to melt in summer, that’s different. Very different.

Perhaps the insane left has taken it too far. Their violence, their blatant anti-semitism, their rejection of democratic mandates and decisions like Brexit, and their mockery of straight white boys, will be their downfall.

This incident in Chiltern Edge Secondary School may be just the beginning of a terrifying snowball for the left, and the start of the fight back for common sense and normality.

Keith Barnes—Maybe I’m wrong, the guys wearing the kilts may be gay if they are also wearing
Panty Hose.

The UK goes farther and farther over the edge.

This is one screwed up world we have become.
Canada and US or on the cusp of becoming just like it.
Are you ready?

When I was at Dean Close School in Cheltenham in 1950, we were required to wear shorts year round. Of course, back then, they were training boys to become men, that doesn’t appear to be the goal today.

The boys can have my old private school uniform.

Keith Barnes…Just because a male wears a KILT doesn’t make him gay.


Hoots Mon, Scotsmen don’t wear Kilts all day, as a rule.

The UK as become a meme.

This came up a couple years ago. As I recall it was the boys themselves that decided to wear the skirts, as protest against an asinine but well established rule.

Just had a thought!
Could not all the schools in England force male students to start wearing kurtas, kufis and thobes? The girls could wear burkas and other assorted tents.
My would that not be stylish?

Most folks can’t afford kilts.

The twit that cooked this insanity up must have been a fan of a particular FBI director. Wonder if they would alow male kilts.

I find somewhat odd that there was a shooting in Pickering over the weekend but there seems to be very little information as to who the suspected perps are or any other information on this incident being delivered not only by the main stream media but the Rebel as well.
Has Canada become another UK?
What are the outcomes of the investigations into the jihadist attack in Edmonton, the driver killing the citizens of Toronto or any of the other reported cases of acts carried out not only by Islamists but by any citizen/resident of this country.
It should be noted that a cop in Toronto, who while performing his duties, shot a perp. Under what circumstances did the cop shoot. We as citizens are very poorly served by the MSM and the court system. We know the name of the cop but know nothing at all about the perp.
Seems there are double standards in this country.

Nothing like bringing out the latent homosexual desires that lay dormant in all males, ready to come to the surface when triggered.
Nothing but Psychological Birth Control for when these Lads turn Gay.
Nothing but the Marxist educational system, paid for by Islam, to speed up the end of the white race.

Today’s teachers are Change Agents for the insane Progressive left . . .
Dale, you are absolutely correct. I remember when my wife was studying for her Ed degree at the U of C in the 80’s. One of the mantras was, “Change society through the schools”.

Why can’t boys wear their gym uniform shorts?

Karan Singh, excellent post.

Isn’t oxfordshire the same town where the paki mohammedan rape gangs operated with impunity for 2 decades under Joanna Simons, the Chief Executive of Oxfordshire County Council?
She never apologized for her incompetence in stopping or for her active role in covering up these paki rape-gangs. On the contrary all these years she was making almost £ 200K (before benefits) per year and got another £260K after she resigned from the post.
What else but complete insanity would you expect form a city council with so twisted mentality.

So let’s work through the logic of this.

Assuming a gender neutral policy accommodates those who identify as one gender or the other. In hot weather skirts are available for girls. They are happy. It’s available for boys who identify as girls. They are happy. But it’s not available for boys who identify as boys. They aren’t happy.

I suggest concerned parents write to the head and Chair of Governors pointing out they are discriminating against boys who identify as boys with the above explanation). They should indicate they will send their boys to school in shorts. The more boys turn up like that the better.

Indeed if their boys have balls (which they will have, of course) they will refuse to go home if told they are dressed inappropriately and carry on normally with lessons.
