UK: School bans teen boys from wearing shorts in the summer — but they are allowed to wear skirts

Article here. Excerpt:

'A SCHOOL has banned teenage boys from wearing shorts in hot weather — but they can wear skirts.

Parents have been told that only long trousers or skirts can be worn under its “gender-neutral” uniform policy.

Chiltern Edge School introduced a new uniform of blue blazer, white shirt, grey trousers or skirts and black shoes as part of a drive to improve standards after an “inadequate” Ofsted rating.

But dad Alastair Vince-Porteous asked if his 13-year-old son could wear tailored grey shorts as he suffers nose bleeds which become more frequent when he gets hot.

He said: “I wanted to try to make him a bit cooler but I was told shorts are not part of the uniform.”

Alastair said he was told his lad could wear a skirt to the school in Sonning Common, Oxfordshire.'

go mel Gibson (no underwear or minimal) on them and i'll bet they will be glad to start treating the boys fairly. then will begin the rules on undergarments. sadly, brits appear to be giving up their manhood at the door. other western cultures are right on their heels. its a sad fellow who is consigned to following his mistress around as though on a leash. I don't even try to include my married guy friends in my adventures anymore (fishing trips, etc.). too much approval required.
