Mentioning biological sex is ‘harmful to trans people’. This is from a resource currently being used to deliver inputs in Scottish schools.

“Biological sex is an ambiguous word that has no scale and no meaning besides that it is related to some sex characteristics. It is also harmful to trans people.”

THIS is being taught in schools!

“The assignment and classification of people as male, female, intersex, or another sex based on a combination of anatomy, hormones, chromosomes. It is important we don’t simply use “sex” because of the vagueness of the definition of sex and its place in transphobia.”

And this too

“Sex Assigned at Birth: The assignment and classification of people as male, female, intersex, or *another sex* based on a combination of anatomy, hormones, chromosomes.”

“It is important we don’t simply use “sex” because of the vagueness of the definition of sex and its place in transphobia.”

Lessons are being delivered in Scottish schools using the phrase ‘sex assigned at birth’. Children are then asked to complete a form answering how they identify – male, female, intersex or other!

Why are schools not informing parents about this?
