The UK has cavalierly experimented with progressive ideals in some of their schools, leaving pupils to act as guinea pigs in a grandiose social experiment.
Sometimes, social experiments backfire with certain negative consequences.
Dozens of British schools were found to have no white pupils at all.
Other schools reported an anomalous number of trans pupils.
Schools have also experimented with non-traditional additions to their curricula, including sex education where children as young as four will learn about safety and healthy relationships.
In the case of mixed sex toilets, which have been introduced under the pretenses of reducing bullying and promoting inclusion; some girls feel as if they’ve been robbed of their privacy.
Some girls report experiencing ‘period shaming’ from boys while forced to share a bathroom.
Muslim girls claim to feel uncomfortable when adjusting their hijabs around boys.
Female pupils have avoided drinking water while at school due to the new mixed sex bathroom arrangement.
According to the University of Warwick, around 40% of female students have reported being victims of sexual harassment at school in England and Wales.
Parents have expressed their disapproval of the new mixed sex toilets, venting concerns for their children.
Wales Online reports
One parent told the consultation that her teenage daughter at a secondary school in Cardiff refuses to use the mixed sex toilets: “She won’t use the toilets and tries to last all day. I sometimes have to go and collect her.
“There are problems when she has a period. Boys are always speculating on whether girls are having their periods according to how long they take in the toilet.
“I have raised the issue with the head. I was told that if my daughter has a problem she must go and see the nurse, which she thinks will just draw attention to her.”
