From the article:  “To turn the tide on this ideological capture – and its harm to children – the guidance must be based on the understanding that biological sex is significant, binary and immutable. It must effectively prevent schools from “socially transitioning” children unless this is “prescribed” by an NHS clinician.
There can be no exceptions to this rule as it is unfair to expect schools to resist pressure from children, parents and activists to make decisions on a case-by-case basis. If a child expresses discomfort with their body – whether they have an eating disorder, anxiety or gender distress – proper safeguarding protocols must be followed, rather than the school agreeing that the child has been “born in the wrong body”.
