Educators Fired For Opposing Tyrannical LGBTQ Policies
This is just more proof that the Left is ruining our society. A Science teacher and an assistant principal were both fired after they tried to get public support for less oppressive policies when it came to dealing with trans people. The teachers wanted to keep with common sense and continue to separate bathrooms/locker rooms by biological gender. They also wanted to continue to use he for males and she for females. The school disagreed.
"Rachel Damiano, the former assistant principal at North Middle School, and Katie Medart, a former science teacher at the same school, both supported the “I Resolve” movement, seeking a biology-based compromise solution to radical transgender demands. They opposed the Orwellian “Equality Act” and supported a resolution upholding the binary of biological sex, urging an anatomical designation for shared public-school restrooms and locker rooms (with a private accommodation for transgender students), and free speech protections for teachers and staff regarding transgender pronouns.
“We recognize that, excepting very rare scientifically-demonstrable medical conditions, there are two anatomical gender presentations, male and female,” the resolution states. “Shared public-school restrooms and locker rooms, previously designated by ‘gender’ (e.g. ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ designations) could be re-designated as "anatomically-male" or "anatomically-female" spaces to only be used by persons matching the anatomical designation of the spaces as consistent with the purpose for which the spaces are built.”
“For any person who is not comfortable using their anatomically correct space, they may request access to a private restroom or locker room space, including designated staff spaces, to the extent that such spaces exist and are available,” the resolution allows.
The resolution also defends free speech while attempting to grant students who identify as transgender the right to request specific pronoun and name use.
“A student may, with parent permission, request to be called by a derivative of their legal name but it will not be mandated that students or staff be required to call the student by their preferred name,” the resolution states. “A student may, with parent permission, request to be referred to with preferred pronouns, but it will not be mandated that students or staff be required to use the preferred pronouns.”
The school disagreed and when they found out the teachers were trying to rally others to this perspective, they had them fired.
"...the school district decided to terminate both Damiano and Medart after a third-party investigator examined complaints that the educators had violated district policies by pretending to represent the school board while “politically" campaigning.” Superintendent Kirk Kolb recommended termination for both employees, and the school board voted 4-3 to terminate each educator."
The teachers were offering a private bathroom for trans-students and would refer to the students by their last name instead, which most trans keep anyway. So the plan was to give these LGBTQ students special treatment without making other students uncomfortable. The "I resolve" plan is far fairer for everyone involved, but the trans movement is not about being fair, it's about forcing everyone to believe their B.S. and then getting offended by anyone with a lick of sense.
