Should teachers refrain from calling pupils 'girls'?

Teachers shouldn't call pupils 'girls' or 'ladies' because it reinforces gender stereotypes and could upset transgender students, according to mental health campaigner Natasha Devon.

Piers Morgan was so vocal about his opposition to the idea, we invited Girls' Schools Association President Charlotte Avery to call in to explain the reasoning behind Natasha's thinking.

"I don't want you to tell my little girl she's not a girl," Piers put to Charlotte to which she responded: "We're aware we have children who don't necessarily identify as girls and there's a balance to be struck, so we are absolutely supporting space for girls to be girls."

Are Charlotte and Natasha right in considering gender fluidity in the classroom?
