Virginia high school teacher Peter Vlaming lost his job for something he did not say.

Good article about a Democrat proposed “equality act” that’s a real slap in the face of free speech



A county school board voted unanimously to fire the veteran teacher over the objections of his students after he refused to comply with administrators’ orders to use masculine pronouns in referring to a female student who identifies as transgender.

Vlaming did his best to accommodate the student without violating his religious belief that God created human beings male and female, using the student’s new name and simply refraining from using pronouns altogether.

Unfortunately, the school still considered this a violation of its anti-discrimination policy.

Incidents like these would increase under federal policy proposed in the Equality Act. Both federal and private employers could face costly lawsuits if they fail to implement strict preferred pronoun policies. Employees could be disciplined if they fail to comply, regardless of their scientific or moral objections.

1. It's gonna get hairy for a while.

Getting fired for that is dumb though. It's a force of habit.
Unless he was arguing with the kid all the time or going out of his way to do it just to be an asshole, but that probably isn't the case, and even then, a reprimand or 2 would fix that right up.

2. It's quite telling when ''party of science'' types feel the need to mandate public acceptance...

...of their mental illnesses as being "normal"....

...kinda like claiming that this:



...is a real Ferrari.

Sorry, no matter how much you dress it up, it will never be a real Ferrari...............

3. I'm pretty sure compelled speech is forbidden with case precedent.
