Using the term ‘girls’ or ‘ladies’ is considered gender discrimination at one UK school, which is now encouraging students to use ‘gender-neutral’ language.

    I'd like to know if I can enrol my son in this school. He is not a boy. We are gender neutral, so he is neither boy or girl.
    So I do hope we can enrol ... the child. The child will be a great student at this school.

    Of course, if he/the child is refused then you are obviously being sexist and this will be discrimination which is a case we will have to take you to court over and we will win because of your schools self proclamation that you don't discriminate and language is gender neutral at your school.

    Good luck saying no... you have just painted yourself into a corner. Your school now has NO choice but to become co-ed. :-)
