Unis dole out money for breast-binders

Students are being offered university grants for ‘gender-affirming’ products and procedures, it has been revealed.

Universities and students’ unions have set aside thousands of pounds to help gender confused students pay for breast-binders, cosmetic surgery or trips to gender clinics.

Responding to the news, MP Lia Nici said : “Universities need to be supporting their students in lectures rather than wasting their supposed cash-strapped organisation’s money on gender ideology”.

Self-ID fund

The Daily Mail revealed that at University College London, students who self-identify “as trans, non-binary, intersex or otherwise gender diverse” can apply to its “Gender Expression Fund”.

Grants of up to £100 can then be used by students to purchase “items that will make them more comfortable with their gender presentation”.

A number of Oxbridge colleges and students’ unions at the universities of Edinburgh, Warwick and Bournemouth run similar schemes.

Toby Young of the Free Speech Union commented: “It beggars belief that universities are spending money on this nonsense when they’re charging £9,250 a year for tuition and clamouring to put fees up.”
