Ethics – Girl Guides trans row

May 2018

Girl Guide leaders have protested against new rules that allow boys self-identifying as female to share changing rooms, showers and tents with biological girls.

Last year, Evangelical Times reported that the Girlguiding UK association had published guidance stating biological males could use the facilities of the gender with which they self-identify. Parents were not necessarily to be informed if their daughters were sharing facilities with biological males — even though this might mean girls as young as 12 or 13 sharing showers with biological males of 18-25 years old.

However, 20 Girl Guide leaders have written to Girlguiding UK’s headquarters to challenge the rules, stating this is placing more emphasis on the demands of trans activists, than the needs of other girls.
