    None of my kids secondary schools allowed shorts. It's not a new thing.

    Of course, if the boys wanted to make a point, they could probably get agreement for shorts as these Swedish train drivers did.

    This has precisely zero to do with transgender, right-on politics or virtue signalling, except it was seen that banning boys from wearing skirts could lead to snowflake activists getting hot under the collar.
    And boys in skirts are?


    The move was part of a government-funded drive to make uniform polices more sensitive to transgender children.

    Didn't we do this whole thing last year?

    I'm sure we found stories with photos of Spanish coach drivers and various school boys from around the UK who where banned from wearing shorts, so they all turned up in skirts in accordance with their uniform policies?
