Netherlands: Atheneum Halle allows girls to take lessons sitting and boys standing

Translated article here. Excerpt:

'During the first lesson, the students of the Atheneum in Halle were told that the boys had to stand and that the girls could sit. That immediately caused a buzz during math class. Because Lisa was allowed to sit down while her neighbor Thomas had to solve his exercises standing up. It was striking that the boys in particular asked questions about why they were not allowed to sit down, while the girls had less difficulty with this.

When the working group that had devised the action entered the classroom with chocolates exclusively for the girls, a discussion started. "Why does one get privileges and the other doesn't? What did we do wrong to be treated differently?" the boys wondered. "And what if we are not a boy or a girl, but transgender?".'
