Supreme Court Backs Teacher Fired For Not Using Student’s Preferred Pronouns

The Virginia Supreme Court ruled in favor of reinstating a high school teacher’s lawsuit against the local school board after he was fired for refusing to use pronouns that didn’t match a student’s biological sex.

The teacher, Peter Vlaming, had accommodated the student’s preferred name but avoided using the student’s preferred pronouns.

The court agreed that the school board violated Vlaming’s rights under the Virginia Constitution and state law, emphasizing the protection of diversity of thought, speech, religion, and opinion. (Trending: Joe Biden Impeachment Formalized As Republicans Unite)

The decision vindicated Vlaming’s right to stand by his convictions.

“Peter went out of his way to accommodate this student as he does all his students; his school fired him because he wouldn’t contradict his core beliefs,” Caleb Dalton of the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) wrote.

“The school board didn’t care how well Peter treated this student. It was on a crusade to compel conformity. He works hard to make his students feel welcomed.”

“In his French class, he always calls his students by the name they choose. He even used the student’s preferred masculine name and was willing to avoid using pronouns in the student’s presence.”

“He just didn’t want to be forced to use a pronoun that offends his conscience. That’s entirely reasonable, and it’s his constitutionally protected right. Tolerance, after all, is a two-way street.”

“Peter wasn’t fired for something he said; he was fired for something he couldn’t say,” Chris Schandevel of ADF said.

“The Virginia Supreme Court rightly agreed that Peter’s case against the school board for violating his rights under the Virginia Constitution and state law should proceed.”

“As a teacher, Peter was passionate about the subject he taught, was well-liked by his students, and did his best to accommodate their needs and requests.”

“But he couldn’t in good conscience speak messages that he doesn’t believe to be true, and no school board or government official can punish someone for that reason.”
