Cross dressing to be allowed at Cambridge

"One of Cambridge’s oldest colleges has announced that it will now allow men to wear skirts and women to wear trousers at formal dinners."

"St Catharine’s College has relaxed its almost 600-year-old dress code in order to accommodate transgender students."

"Previously, regulations at the college stipulated that male students must always wear a jacket, tie and smart trousers to formal dinners and women must wear a skirt or a dress."

"However, concerns were raised that this was rigidly imposing traditional gender binaries. It has been announced that students are now welcome to wear either trousers or skirts regardless of their gender identity."

Does this mean young Scots attending Cambridge will be allowed to wear kilts, or is that too confusing?

Perhaps we need to teach children that clothes are only a convention.
