School administrators reprimanded a physical education teacher in Florida for refusing to oversee a biological female middle schooler, who identifies as a male, get undressed in the boys’ locker room. (Daily Wire)
According to a complaint letter from Liberty Counsel to Pasco County School District, the female student caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” reports The Federalist.
Teachers and administrators were barred from speaking about the transgender policy, and when a male P.E. teacher refused to supervise the boys’ locker room with the female student, he was reprimanded and told he would be transferred to a different school:
“With a ‘gag order,’ school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed girl in the Chasco Middle School locker room,” the letter says. When he refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” administrators told him “he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.'”
According to Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast, the male teacher, who is also a coach at the school, was first threatened to be put on administrative leave via email; he was informed that his refusal to oversee a potentially undressed female in the locker room would “not be tolerated.”
According to the school district’s LGBT liaison “schools have an obligation to not disclose the student’s transgender status to other students or parents unless the student has provided explicit permission to do so.”
