Kansas teacher wins federal case, will not be forced to use students' preferred pronouns

LINK

quote:

After a months long battle, Pamela Ricard has won her battle against transgender-accommodating policies being implemented in public schools across the nation.

Ricard was reprimanded in April of 2021 for failure to use a student's preferred pronouns, despite the school not having an official policy on preferred pronoun use at the time. The school later implemented various policies on the issue after Ricard was reprimanded.


quote:

Ricard sued the school after she was reprimanded, citing that her First and Fourteenth Amendment rights had been violated. In May of 2022, Ricard received a ruling by a federal court that her termination for failing to use students' preferred pronouns was unconstitutional.

The decision rendered the termination unconstitutional because her refusal to use the pronouns was based on her religious beliefs, specifically Christianity. This she cited as the reason she could not be compelled to adhere to the school’s demand, which was to call students by names or pronouns that were inconsistent with their biological sex.

Thank God.

Can you imagine if a schizophrenic student demanded that the teachers/staff acknowledged the voices in their heads?

Or if an anorexic kid wanted everyone to address them as "fatass"?

My son had a friend that wanted us to use they/them as her pronouns. I quickly responded "no chance". To me, that's just bad English. She finally agreed.

I will call you by whatever name you choose. But I am not using crazy pronouns.

Because they respond to weakness with tantrums. These are spoiled children. 'No' is very effective.

Never mind that it’s mentally ill and/or exceedingly needy of attention.

This sets an important precedent, does it not?

PT lawyers, can you elaborate on if this will have bigger effects than just this woman getting some justice?

I think its a stage for teenagers to feel special. I have noticed 99% of them move on from the trans/gay/pronouns movement when they realize its not who they really are as a man/woman.

Because it's child abuse forced on the kids by the parents.

Which is why the gay groups push to get them poisoned and transitioned as fast as possible. No turning back.

Did SCOTUS ever put out a ruling about the teacher fired for doing a voluntary prayer after football game?

It was a pretty simple 1st Amendment case. Result was never in doubt.
