(Tea Party 247) – There’s nothing more sexist than the idea that gender-neutrality is preferable to, well, gender.
Feminism is officially dead when women and girls are punished and made to hide from their biological gender in the name of “inclusion.”
This is exactly what has happened to female students in the UK who were literally barred from going to class by school officials and the police because they refused to wear a new “gender neutral” uniform.
Around 100 students protested the new uniform policy outside the gates of Priory School in Lewes after receiving a letter at the end of the summer which advised they would be required to wear pants at all times.
According to the school, the new policy was established to “address inequality,” and be “inclusive,” but students and parents were outraged.
After all, how is it inclusive to exclude girls who want to dress like traditional girls?
Hats off to the girls at a Sussex secondary school who are refusing to comply with new rules requiring them to wear 'gender neutral' uniforms. The gates were closed on them because – shock, horror – they want to continue wearing skirts! All power to them! pic.twitter.com/wwikWo6l53

Students who carried signs reading “choice” were turned away at the school’s gate by school officials aided by police officers.
“A gender neutral uniform would allow boys to wear skirts and girls to wear skirts and both to wear trousers,” said parent Sheila Cullen.
Other students objected that they were being forced to spend over £100 for another uniform that would only be worn for 9 months.
MP for Lewes, Maria Caulfield, declared it was “ridiculous” to tells girls they couldn’t wear skirts.
“It is political correctness gone mad,” she said.
Amen to that!
