Forced opposite sex pronouns, but saying 'boys & girls' isn't allowed.

Our school just announced a "Rainbow Lounge- a safe place for LGBTQIA+ people, their friends and allies to come together." It implies that they are in danger- that's not a good message to give to little children. Why frighten them?

And I’m not sure that having a seperate space and inviting these kids, their friends and ALLIES is inclusive at all. The opposite of ally is enemy. So any kid not comfortable or not wanting to go in is an enemy.

I also know from a teacher at a government primary school that they’ve been told not to say “boys and girls” anymore but “Students”. So we have to use the wrong pronouns but aren't allowed to say 'boys and girls". This makes no sense.
