Article here. Excerpt:

'A UK primary school is trying to stop sexism being ingrained into young children by banning language that differentiates genders in the classroom.

Anderton Park Primary, a public school in Birmingham north of London, is encouraging its students to call out teachers for “sexist” language, The Times reports.

Those phrases include “man up”, “grow a pair”, “bossy” and “boys don’t cry”.

Other phrases banned at the school are “let’s go, guys” and “boys and girls”.

Students who call out teachers for sexist comments are rewarded with a certificate.'
