A Scottish elementary school reportedly urged male students to wear skirts to class Thursday to prove “clothes don’t have a gender.”
Castleview Primary School in Edinburgh held “Wear a Skirt to School Day,” emulating a Spanish campaign in support of a boy who was mocked for wearing a skirt to school in 2020.
What a lovely idea 😊🌈
🏫 We're delighted to see one of our wonderful #LGBTCharter schools taking the lead from pupils with this today to help challenge gender stereotypes and send a strong message of inclusion for all.
Well done to the pupils for raising this idea! 👏👏🏽👏🏿 https://t.co/tYDdRSG9Dx

According to the Daily Mail, Castleview teachers wrote to parents, “We’re keen to spread the message that clothes don’t have a gender and that we should all be free to express ourselves as we choose.”
- While students apparently came up with the idea and were allowed to opt out, critics denounced the school for what they saw as woke indoctrination.
Some boys and male teachers at an Edinburgh primary school are supporting a Clothes Have No Gender campaign by wearing skirts.

MEANWHILE, IN AMERICA
Schools’ progressive policies and curricula about gender, race and other issues helped drive a surge of Republican votes in Virginia and New Jersey last week — sparking an intra-Democratic fight over the wisdom of woke politics.
Like the average audience for people seriously using the word “woke” in a 2021 political discussion are James Carville and Fox News pundits so that should tell you all you need to know
