As we’ve continually stated, the secular left is bent on instituting a “genderless society,” and our warning has not been just for effect. It’s already here.
According to The Daily Wire, an Oregon elementary school teacher who identifies as neither male nor female, but “transmasculine” or “genderqueer,” was recently awarded $60,000 by her school district as compensation for the “suffering” she’d endured on the job after coworkers referred to her by the “wrong” pronoun.
Leo Soell, a female fifth grade teacher at Hall Elementary School in Portland, was compensated by the Gresham-Barlow School District after she complained to school officials that her coworkers kept calling her “she,” “lady,” or “Miss Soell.” Soell said she does not identify as male or female and would like to be referred to as “they” instead of “he” or “she.”
According to Soell, she and her co-workers felt frustrated and distracted from the lack of clarity in the school halls about her “transformation.”
No doubt the students did, too! After all, if not “Ms. Soell” or “Mr. Soell,” what are they supposed to call her???
An investigation within the district, which was kept confidential by school officials, found no proof that Soell was harassed. Of course, that didn’t matter. School officials forked over $60K for her emotional “damages” just for good measure.
Oh, and district officials agreed to add all-gender bathrooms to all schools in the district and create mandatory “transgender awareness” trainings for all principals and staff.
Being that Oregon is on the other side of these continental United States, it seems pretty far away from Virginia, but it’s not that far. And neither are its policies.
Students, parents, teachers, school staff, and school boards everywhere: you’ve been warned.
