Girlguiding now includes trans girls and not everybody is happy


The largest girls-only organisation in Britain is under fire for allowing trans girls to join in. Girlguiding, which has been empowering girls and women for 107 years through adventure and community activities has recently announced its new trans-inclusive policy. The document states that trans girls should be enabled to use the same dorm rooms, toilets and changing areas as well as cis girls. And if trans Guides don’t want to, they be should provided with separate spaces, the guidance continues. In its report, The Mail on Sunday quoted Conservative MP David Davies, who has previously called trans women “he/she” and said they should use men’s bathrooms. Davies told the newspaper: “If transgender girls who are physically male are going to be sharing facilities, it’s going to make some girls threatened and uncomfortable”. She warned of “boys invading bedrooms, tents and showers” at Girlguiding events, adding that it might be the end of single-sex spaces and what is girl-only won’t be girl-only actually.
