Kansas School District Pays $95K Settlement After Suspending Teacher For Not Using Preferred Pronouns

A Kansas school district has agreed to pay a settlement of $95,000 in a civil lawsuit brought by a teacher who was suspended for refusing to use the preferred pronouns of a self-declared trans student (a female demanding to be referred to as “he/him”).

Pamela Ricard, a math teacher at Fort Riley Middle School, says she was pressured by school officials to placate a trans student in her class by using preferred pronouns.  When Ricard asked for a religious exemption to the rule she was allegedly denied.  Ricard also claimed that the school district forced teachers to lie to parents about students and their trans status, and even asked teachers to not use student trans names during parent/teacher conferences in order to avoid revealing any sensitive information.    

Ricard received a three day suspension after referring to the trans student as “Miss,” and for using the student’s legal enrolled name.  She was warned that any further “misgendering” would lead to more disciplinary actions.  

It is important to note that there are no laws in the state of Kansas requiring that anyone use transgender pronouns, and that these rules were being unilaterally enforced by school district officials.  The Fort Riley School District was cornered into settlement when a federal court ruled in May that Pamela Ricard had a religious right to refuse censorship and to refuse to submit to pronoun requirements.  They also ruled that teachers cannot be pressured to keep secrets from the parents of trans students.

The Kansas incident is only one of thousands of exposed events that prove the existence of a concerted widespread social justice agenda within the American school system.  Though the political left has consistently claimed that such an agenda does not exist and that parent accusations are nothing more than “conspiracy theory,” the evidence is undeniable.  

The exposure of transgender indoctrination and policy enforcement in schools led to a national firestorm over Florida’s anti-grooming bill, which leftists called the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.”  The bill, now passed into law, prevents teachers from engaging in sexualized discussions or sexualized propaganda lessons with young children, and also demands that teachers share their lesson plans with parents.  Teachers that violate the law can be fired.

Multiple states across the country have had to formulate similar pieces of legislation as a means to stop intersectional ideology from being injected into school curriculum.  Florida alone found that at least 44% of school textbooks the state reviewed contained multiple instances of social justice propaganda including Critical Race Theory propaganda.  Interestingly, the majority of the propaganda was discovered in books for children K-5. 

Desantis provided multiple examples of leftist and CRT propaganda implanted in school texts, but to this day leftists claim no examples were given and that CRT is “not real.” 

Twitter group ‘Libs Of TikTok’ famously showcased hundreds of video, made mostly by teachers, in which they openly admit to indoctrinating students with LGBT and CRT propaganda in their classrooms.  The group has faced multiple suspensions from various social media platforms, and has been accused of “hateful conduct” simply for reposting the videos to their own account.  

The trans movement is a movement to control and to dictate speech while pretending it is a movement for civil rights.  No one has a right to compel another person by force or coercion to use their preferred pronouns.  The entire situation can be bewildering because of the multiple tentacles the extreme left employs in their culture war, but there are some rules that can help to clear the fog and confusion.

The first rule which makes it possible to understand and predict the actions of the social justice left:  They ALWAYS lie.

The second rule is:  They always double down on the lies.

The third rule is:  They always gaslight when they are caught lying.

The fourth rule is:  Believe what you see right in front of your eyes, not what they say that you should see.      

The Kansas settlement for Pamela Ricard reveals yet another piece of the hidden puzzle that is woke ideology within public schools.  It is an indoctrination process that has been ongoing for years and only recently have parents started to notice and become involved.  

Interestingly, though, in the case of Fort Riley, it was apparently school district officials that were threatening teachers in order to make them comply with the agenda, rather than specific teachers trying to slip their propaganda under the radar.  This shows that leftist teachers grooming children is not the only concern – We must also watch out for School board members and other officials using their power to frighten non-woke teachers into silence.

Report: UK Mother ARRESTED For ‘Offensive’ Online Posts

Alleges that trans activists are using police to harass her and anyone else who expresses disagreement with their ideology

A mother of five in the UK is making headlines after police arrested her in front of her children and apparently seized her computer following alleged ‘offensive’ online posts concerning transgender issues.

The Daily Mail reports the claims of ‘Catholic feminist campaigner’ Caroline Farrow who says she was detained for the alleged posts and memes shared on the online forum KiwiFarms.

Farrow, who has had previous run ins with the Surrey police over the same issue, says that officers forced their way into her house and took away all her devices, including an iPad she uses to homeschool her children.

Farrow says she isn’t behind the posts that someone reported to police as ‘offensive’:

She posted images of police entering her house to arrest her:

In an interview with GB News, Farrow who has been released pending investigation asserted “I have been arrested for what was a twitter spat about gender issues.”

Farrow has asserted that trans activists are using police to harass those who do not agree with their ideology, a stance she has been public about for some time now.

Police released a statement addressing the case after public backlash following media reports, in which they claimed it is their duty to investigate a report of a “grossly offensive message,” and “assess it alongside any available evidence to identify if an offense has been committed.”

“We do not have the freedom of detailing every stage of our inquiries or the specifics of an allegation on social media as it is critical we do not pre-empt or prejudice any future proceedings at any stage,” the statement adds.

While Farrow’s case is clearly an ongoing battle between her organisation and trans activists, many non-affiliated people in the UK have chimed in to relate how they have been harassed by police over ‘offensive’ social media posts.

The Mail notes that Farrow was previously investigated by police concerning allegations she misgendered a trans daughter of the head of the transgender charity Mermaids and accused the organization of promoting child abuse.

The latest developments have brought further scrutiny on the charity:

    Video: CBS News Report Frames Removal Of Gay Porn Books From Children’s Library As ‘Book Banning’

    Library claims it is being “defunded” by conservative parents

    CBS Evening News ran a report Wednesday lamenting the fact that various controversial LGBTQ themed books have been removed from a school library in Jamestown, Michigan after parents complained that the material was pornographic.

    The piece framed the development, which is occurring in schools nationwide, in the context of a “sharp rise in book bans in America’s schools and libraries”.

    Correspondent Elaine Quijano noted that a group of parents called the Jamestown Conservatives have “led a successful drive to essentially defund the library.”

    Defund?

    “They want those books removed from the shelves,” Quijano further complained.

    The report also contained an interview with the library board president, who repeated the “defunded” pejorative and whined “I feel like we’ve kind of stepped back in time, talking about book banning.”

    Watch:

    As we have repeatedly highlighted, the children’s books in question contain graphic depictions of oral sex between gay men, as well as a host of other material that is objectively unsuitable for children.

    This case is one of many where parents have spoken out against books and subject matter, including transgenderismpedophilia, gay pornography, and critical race theory, that children as young as Kindergarten age are being subjected to in America’s schools.

    Parents nation-wide have found themselves under attack by leftists and even government entities over recent months after taking on school officials.

    Watch: Planned Parenthood Cartoon Touts Puberty Blockers For Children

    “Puberty blockers are safe and can give you more time to figure out what feels right for you, your body, and your gender identity”

    Published

    Not content with staying in its lane as abortion champions, Planned Parenthood has produced a cartoon, aimed at children, promoting the virtues of puberty blocking pharmaceutical drugs.

    Yes, really.

    The video was shared to Twitter by Inside the classroom, a conservative group that has previously focused on exposing efforts to indoctrinate school children with critical race theory.

    “There is no one size fits all puberty experience,” the video claims, adding “Some people decide on hormones or surgeries to help their bodies match up to their gender identities or how they feel inside about themselves.”

    It continues, “Your gender identity is real. You should be the one to decide what changes you want to make to your body.”

    “If you’re transgender or nonbinary, you may find that your puberty experiences don’t line up with your gender identity. That feeling can be uncomfortable, scary, and stressful. If that sounds like you, know that you’re not alone,” the video further claims before launching into a push for ‘safe’ puberty blocking drugs.

    “There are medicines you can take to delay puberty for awhile,” the video further proclaims, adding “they work like a stop sign, by holding the hormones testosterone and estrogen that cause puberty changes like facial hair growth and periods.”

    “Puberty blockers are safe and can give you more time to figure out what feels right for you, your body, and your gender identity,” the video declares, without providing any detailed facts.

    There is little long term research on the effects of puberty blockers, and according to the American College of Pediatricians “There is not a single long-term study to demonstrate the safety or efficacy of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries for transgender-believing youth.”

    In the short term, the drugs have been linked to depression and a worsening of confusion, as well as other mental and emotional problems.

    The Family Research Council notes that studies have concluded the drugs do nothing to solve gender confusion, which is a natural state of mind that the vast majority of children eventually outgrow.

    The longer term studies that have been undertaken indicate the drugs could cause sterilization, reduced bone density, cognitive problems, increased body fat percentage and body mass index, decreased lean body mass, and arterial hypertension.

    But the 2 minute cartoon says they’re safe, so lets go with that.

    The Biden administration, with its transgender Assistant Health Secretary is pushing puberty blockers and working to “empower” children to get sex change surgery.

    Meanwhile, those who oppose lopping off the breasts and genitals of teenagers, and have chosen to speak out against it, are being vilified and facing calls to be prosecuted by the Justice Department.
