Rugby Christian Fellowship Church (UK)

A five year old boy has been banned from a church-run after-school club because he wears clothing designed for girls.

Mrs Bex Venables, the minister in training at the Rugby Christian Fellowship yesterday defended the decision.

‘[The boy] is still allowed to attend Buzz Children’s Club but has been asked to wear clothing of the gender stated on his registration form, which states male,’ she said.

In the UK, people are not permitted to change their gender on government documents until the age of 18. However, in most of the UK, transgender schoolchildren are treated as the gender they identify as. It would be interesting to know if this five year old boy identified as a girl, would the school then be ok with his choice of dress?

  1. He should be allowed to wear a dress if he wants to. He is just a five year old kid, and children that age like to dress up in all kinds of outfits. When he gets a older, his mother might have a talk with him and tell him that he might consider wearing pants and a shirt, especially at certain places. Still, I say leave this little five year old boy alone.

    “It would be interesting to know if this five year old boy identified as a girl, would the school then be ok with his choice of dress?”

    This is an interesting point, but it’s moot to me because how can a five year old male child “identify as a girl”. I’ve never bought into the idea that four and five year old boys “identify as a girl” whatever this is supposed to mean.
