Virginia high school teacher fired for not using correct trans pronoun
He's now suing.

Quote:In the summer of 2018, a transgender student at West Point High School in West Point, Va., had transitioned, asking his French teacher to refer to him with masculine pronouns: he, him, his.

But the instructor, Peter Vlaming, did not comply, he said in a lawsuit. Citing his religious beliefs, he promised to use only the student’s name and avoid pronouns entirely. Administrators, he said, eventually gave the teacher an ultimatum: use the student’s correct pronouns or face disciplinary action.

Then, on Oct. 31, 2018, his second-year French students wore virtual-reality goggles and walked around the classroom. The transgender student seemed about to crash when the teacher told another student to help.

“Don’t let her hit the wall,” Vlaming shouted.

That was the last straw for the student, who withdrew from Vlaming’s class. But it was also the last straw for school officials, who suspended the teacher for insubordination, and from the school board, which later fired him, citing how Vlaming had repeatedly ignored orders from his bosses.

On Monday, Vlaming sued school district officials for allegedly violating his right to speak freely and exercise his religion, among other claims. “Vlaming’s conscience and religious practice prevents him from intentionally lying,” his lawsuit said, “and he sincerely believes that referring to a female as a male by using an objectively male pronoun is telling a lie.”

In a statement to The Washington Post, a spokesperson for West Point Schools and its board said they deny any wrongdoing and will “vigorously defend” against Vlaming’s claim.

“West Point Public Schools’ primary focus is on students, staff, and instruction,” the spokesperson said, “and we will continue to direct our energy toward maintaining a high-quality learning environment in our schools.”

He’s not the first teacher to receive some scrutiny for refusing to refer to transgender students by their preferred pronouns: A math teacher in Jacksonville, Fla., faced reprimands from his principal in August for doing the same thing. Last fall, a professor at Shawnee State University in Ohio said he was “formally charged” for his opposition.

Vlaming’s lawsuit, which also seeks an injunction against school officials for punishing teachers who refer to students based on their “biological sex,” comes amid ideological and legal battles surrounding gender identity, religion and anti-discrimination policies. The Trump administration has rolled back protections for transgender people in schools, in the military and in health care. In August, a federal judge ruled that a high school in Virginia’s Gloucester County, just down the road from West Point, had violated the rights of student Gavin Grimm after he was barred from using the bathroom of his choice.

Vlaming’s legal battle began after the student at his rural high school, about 40 miles east of Richmond, came out as transgender. The student, who had already taken two years of French with Vlaming, asked him to begin referring to him with masculine pronouns.

But Vlaming called the student female pronouns behind his back to classmates, his lawsuit said, leading to meetings among the teacher, student, student’s mother and various school administrators, who all asked Vlaming to use the proper pronouns. After each meeting, however, he continued using only the student’s name in class.

“I can’t think of a worse way to treat a child than what was happening,” West Point High School Principal Jonathan Hochman later said at a school board meeting, according to the Associated Press.

Citing policies against creating a hostile learning environment, administrators eventually told Vlaming that he would face disciplinary action if he didn’t comply. One day after the Halloween incident, he was suspended by the superintendent for failing to do so. A week later, administrators recommended that the school board fire him.

“That discrimination then leads to creating a hostile learning environment. And the student had expressed that. The parent had expressed that,” West Point schools Superintendent Laura Abel said, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “They felt disrespected.”

On Dec. 6, 2018, at a packed school board meeting that lasted more than five hours, with crowds of West Point students backing the teacher and his former student, Vlaming maintained that he was being coerced into using language with which he didn’t agree. But the school board disagreed.

“The issue before us was not one mistaken slip of the tongue,” the school board said in a statement to TV station WWBT.

His firing led to dueling petitions as well as a walkout in which about 100 students marched out of school carrying signs that read, “Men are men. Women are women,” the station reported.

Vlaming filed his lawsuit in state court on Monday, naming the West Point school district as well as Abel, Hochman and Suzanne Aunspach, an assistant principal.

Caleb Dalton, a lawyer with Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative legal organization in Arizona representing Vlaming, said in a statement Monday that the teacher went out of his way to accommodate the student. ADF has run afoul of civil rights advocates, including the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has classified it as a hate group.

The ADF’s vice president and senior counsel, Jeremy Tedesco, disputed that classification, calling the SPLC “discredited and unreliable” in a statement sent to The Post.

“In stark contrast to the SPLC’s name-calling tactics that divide rather than unify people, ADF’s legal victories—including nine wins at the Supreme Court since 2011—have expanded the freedoms of all Americans,” Tedesco said in the statement.

"The school board didn’t care how well Peter treated this student,” Dalton said. “It was on a crusade to compel conformity.”

He charged that West Point schools are compelling Vlaming to “take sides in an ongoing public debate about gender dysphoria,” according to the lawsuit, and forcing him to “express ideas about human nature” that he believes are false.

For the school and for the student’s family, however, it comes down to a matter of respect — and of following instructions. On Halloween 2018, after Vlaming referred to the male-identifying student as “her,” the student waited for the classroom to empty out, according to the teacher’s lawsuit.

“Mr. Vlaming, you may have your religion,” he said, upon approaching the teacher, “but you need to respect who I am.”

Note the "the parent had expressed that", which means a single parent household, which means it's the mom who is doing this to the girl.

Also, this is coming to corporate workplaces. If you accidentally call your tranny coworker by the wrong pronoun, you're in trouble.

Good for him for suing. One of the key ways to stop the madness is to make it very expensive for our enemies to keep pushing this crap. That's why outfits like Judicial Watch are so key in holding these crooks accountable.

Hopefully he wins the lawsuit.

I don’t think we are hitting peak degeneracy just yet, our public schools will continue to promote tranny rights and eventually will over reach spectacularly.

"...prevents him from intentionally lying."

That's amazing that he put that in there. Simple and tells exactly what so many people do in our society to not hurt anyone feelz. Telling the truth would prevent so much insanity, even if it stings at first. Imagine how much happier people would be long term if they weren't told so many lies.

More like "who I imagine myself to be".

Not much of this in the corporate world yet, but it is coming as they grow up. I hope the more high intensity careers can filter out the mentally ill, but it will be a shit show regardless.

No man. Err, no ma'am?

The trannies spent their entire lives demanding that the rest of the world aquiesce to their delusions. How well do you think any of them will function in the workforce? Imagine a tranny trying to work as an accountant or a lawyer or even a secretary or office assistant and how well that would pan out?

Terribly, but we will be forced - at the barrel of a gun - to entertain their delusions.

To answer your question very few can, function in the workplace. I am fuzzy on the exact number but somewhere around 60-80% of trannies are unemployed. Many can barely hold a basic job with excuses stemming from medical and stigma when the reality is that the majority of trannies have extreme behavioural and psychosis issues which make them a liability on staff. Some high function trannies who are likely 'Spergish (and 90% of the time Male to female transitions) can hold solitude mental might jobs as software programmers where they are just asked to perform mental tasks but this is not the norm.

As the majority are faced with unemployment or underemployment the natural route for most if not all are degenerate employment such as sex work as they can command niche money form fellow degenerates who want to pay for a wild time.

Other trannies simply are employed within their own world as councillors and admins for other trannies via government-supported community centres and shelters. Others are rent-seekers who do writing other types of creative work for the same integrated clown world they live in.

Also, many trannies are very picky with who they seek as potential employers as they put preference on jobs that provide benefits and other freebies to pay for their hormones and drugs (hence the above the prefered avenue of working within their own circular industries that would provide such benefits).

RE: Virginia high school teacher fired for not using correct trans pronoun
Lol, the system doesn't have enough power to force every one to accept this shit. Just say no. The silent majority may feel fear for not conforming to the lock step of the globohomo uniparty only because they see no one else resisting. May God bless this teacher for standing up to this disgusting delusion.

Need that flyer to go up now about how "Islam is right about Homosexuals" this is a war after all, and one of attrition at that. Flyers are the exposes normals require to reaffirm their thoughts which align to natural law and not the frankenstein of globalist fetishes.

You can't cheat nature.

It certainly highlights the merit of saving at least enough money to viably threaten a lawsuit when the globohomo NPCs expose themselves to one.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.
