Teacher kicks student from class for saying there are only two genders

“O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended. ‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’ ‘And if the party says that it is not four but five — then how many?'” – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

On June 14, 2019, someone on Reddit posted a link, since deleted, to a video on YouTube, with this claim: “My teacher kicked me out of class for saying there are only 2 genders“. Fortunately, I’d saved the link to the video before the Reddit poster deleted it.

The video appears to have been taken by the student of his private meeting with the teacher after the teacher had kicked the student out of the class for insisting that there are only two genders, male and female.

The video shows a visual of the teacher looming over the seated student. You can hear the back-and-forth argument between the two.

The video begins with the teacher responding to the student: “You’re entitled to your opinion…. It’s not very inclusive…. I’m sorry, but what you were saying was not very inclusive and this is an inclusive school.”

The student apparently had defended himself by saying he got it from a website.

Teacher: “I’m saying that website has an agenda.”

Student: “Well, that’s your opinion.”

Teacher: “That is my opinion and that is an opinion which is acceptable in the school….”

Student: “There are just two genders.”

Teacher: “You are choosing to make an issue of this…. Keep quiet! …You were clearly given an opportunity not to pursue it. You choose to do so.”

Student: “Yeah, because I think it’s –”

Teacher: “You choose to do so.”

Student: “I think it’s silly to have anything other than two genders –”

Teacher, raising his voice: “Please keep that opinion to your own house, thank you.”

Student: “So you get to put your opinion out in the classroom….”

Teacher: “I’m not putting my opinion out. I am stating what is national school authority policy. Okay?”

Student: “Of course it’s not scientic whatsoever.”

Teacher: “Not every policy is scientific, sorry. Not every policy is scientific, buddy.” The teacher again points out that the student wasn’t being “inclusive”.

Student: “You can’t come out here and say that I’m not being inclusive.”

Teacher: “I said what you just said [was not inclusive]….”

Student says, as the teacher turns away: “If you want to have a discussion about it, we could have done it — had a discussion. You don’t have to kick me out of class…. I state something I believe in and you kicked me out of class. For 30 minutes I’m waiting….”

Teacher: “You can make an official complaint.”

Student: “I’m not gonna make an official complaint….”

Teacher: “I know what you think and I know what the authority thinks, the authority’s point of view. I know very clear that we make no discrimination on the grounds of gender….”

Student: “I wasn’t making a discrimination, I’m simply saying there are two genders, male and female. Anything else is a personal identification.”

Teacher: “I’m sorry, but you chose to make an issue of making a point which is contrary to policy.”

Student: “You made the issue when you complained about the website, sir. And I responded by saying there are only two genders.”

Teacher: “Yeah, you can choose, but you’re making bad choices.”

Student says, as the teacher walks out of the room: “I’m making bad choices. Okay. Well, can I take my bag and go to the…. Okay, I’ll stay here. Thanks for wasting my time.”

The teacher turns back to say: “Buddy, I am not wasting my time, you are.”


No one knows where the video was taken. The teacher has a strong Scottish accent; the student also has one, though much less pronounced.

Assuming the school is in Scotland, when the teacher refers to “national school authority policy,” he probably means this — on May 8, 2019, the Scottish government issued the letter, “LGBT inclusive education: guidance to education authorities May 2019“. The letter says:

On 8 November 2018, Scottish Ministers accepted in full the recommendations of the LGBTI Inclusive Education Working Group. The 33 recommendations cover the professional learning of teachers, practice and guidance, school inspections and anti-bullying….

The Scottish Government, in partnership with COSLA, is committed, through the delivery of the recommendations, to a fully inclusive education for Scotland’s children and young people. Many of you will already be taking steps to achieve this aim. We are issuing this intermediate guidance note to help you build upon existing good practice, make clear that education should be LGBT inclusive and encourage you to work collegiately and in partnership with your learners to enhance LGBT inclusivity….

Signed:

John Swinney, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills
Stephen McCabe, COSLA Children and Young People spokesperson

WTF does “education should be LGBT inclusive” mean? Does it mean acceding to every lunatic idea of the Left?

Someone on Twitter says the school in the video is Mearns Academy, a 6-year secondary (high) school in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. On its website is an emblem certifying the school as a “rights respecting school”:

By “rights” is meant the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child  (UNCRC). Among the “rights” stipulated in the UNCRC are the “right” of non-discrimination on the basis of gender, but also the “rights” of freedom of expression, and freedom of thought and belief.

Clearly, the school in the video and all schools in Scotland do not include a respect for students’ right to freedom of thought, belief and expression among its “national school authority policy”.

Again, conscientious parents teach their children, boys and girls, all about life, good an bad, right and wrong, after all we all went through it. Teachers and counselors must adhere and teach BY THE BOOK and NOTHING ELSE.

Four fingers are four fingers. If the teacher says five, I want my child to tell me so I can tell that m.f. teacher he is wrong, PERIOD. if that means taking my child out of that school.

I would say that we have four fingers and one thumb on each hand, regardless of what the “authority” says. The authority also says we must not think critically or express personal opinions. Why, then, would anyone force their children to attend these nonsensical laboratories of brainwashing?

km . . . . . You are absolutely correct. This has everything to do with the Communist agenda of bringing “confusion, distortion, and debauchery” into our communities, so that today’s children can be easily turned to the Communist way of thinking. God help all of today’s young people.

This teacher is a disgrace to the profession, an indoctrinator for The State. The kid wasn’t expressing his “beliefs” or “opinions”, he was stating scientific facts, aka objective truth. There is nothing the left hates more than truth. Public schools exist only to brainwash kids with their satanic filth. Home school your kids

Progressives/liberals are the true science deniers. There are 2 biological sexes, male and female as determined by genetics.
Now you may FEEL that you are a boy, a girl, a dog, a “furry”, or a Martian, but these are delusions, and have no basis in reality.
Feelings are NOT facts, and no amount of LGBTQ-LMNOP propaganda will make it so.

Yours is certainly the voice of reason . . . the PC crowd thinks we should cater to those who “feel” they are something other than either a human male, or a human female. This is crazy making for the rest of society.

There are more than 2 genders? Who knew?
I thought when you were born that you either had a penis or vagina. I had no idea that you could define someone’s sex or gender based on what they THINK they are. Or that Sex and Gender aren’t the same thing. These folks are what I would call mentally ill, including anybody that supports such nonsense. Period.

The “Gender Thing” may be the most instructive of all the many social engineered destruction ploys yet. Just think of it. If you can get reasonably well-educated people to actually believe that there are a “multitude” of “genders”, as opposed to two, you can get them to “believe” anything. In a larger context, getting people to recite state propaganda that is clearly false is a method to condition people to choose “correctness” over logic. They are the least “inclusive” people on earth, but they claim inclusiveness and that everyone else is “racist”, for example. So, what this teacher is really… Read more »

Indeed, the “Gender Thing” is very fundamental. It is astonishing to me that so many people just appear to accept that “some boys have a vagina and some girls have a penis”. What could be more obviously and clearly and unambiguously delineated than gender identity? Yes if people believe this they will believe literally anything, for instance that an infinitesimal increase in the concentration of an inert trace gas that is just a tiny almost negligible percentage of the atmosphere can cause “catastrophic climate change”. No it didn’t just spring up, we’re witnessing the ramping up of long-term planning. I… Read more »

Yes, absolutely. We KNOW that this phenomenon is not “spontaneous”. In fact, there are not anywhere near enough neurotics of this type to spawn and sustain a movement like this. Of course there are many more “claimed” neurotics since some are paid agitators and others are just insane joiners and general misfits. Look at the development curve. First its “gay acceptance”. Then it’s “Queer demands”. Then it’s “transgenderism” and pedophilia. I’m beginning to see beastiality creeping in there too. So, what’s foundational about this? They all HATE America (Europe if that’s where you are), want the total destruction and reordering… Read more »

Yep, “Hail Satan!!!, er I mean The Authority”. Just like Bernays, these guys were just excellent observers. This is so much the opposite of how I am that it always blows my mind when I see it. I think they’re having me on.

I actually had high school teachers that I can see doing this. There are no shortage of losers in our world.

It’s about time you read 1984:) Many people think Orwell was describing Nazi Germany but he was actually describing the Soviet Union under Stalin. He reversed the last two numbers of 1948

Amen DCG. I read Orwell in high school in the mid 1960s. Orwell and CS Lewis warned us of these trends and movements. It is amazing to see how prescient these authors were, and how they actually speak to our day.

I can assure you as a CA public middle school teacher (in the USA) that, for the last 5 years, the “fluid gender” crap (plus the bathroom and locker room issues) has almost taken over my daily lessons for most classes. I have to serve as the “mediator” and tread a fine line at upholding district and State policy, while allowing students to express their understandings and beliefs–one way or another. If it intrudes on my class lesson time, I have to do it anyway, b/c the kids will go home and tell parents “I told Mrs._____ that so-and-so commented… Read more »

The situation re: doing nothing about someone commenting on someone’s non-binary bathroom choices (??) reminds me of a friend whose daughter laughed when one of her “rivals” dropped her books in school and the school actually had two State Police officers come in and reprimand her about “bullying”. Another anecdote that came to mind was of a man in the old Soviet Union who had a dream that The Leader had died and he awoke in tears. He told his wife about it and he was arrested for having an “Anti-Soviet Dream” and she was arrested for not denouncing him.… Read more »

I think it would be well worth encouraging all students to chant there are only 2 genders and see if the school ejects them all……….massive walkout until the transgender push stops and sanity returns

Treason and tyranny coast to coast! America flying rainbows coast to coast. What is going on in this country is beyond words, but it will be over soon. No need to get violent, God, in very short time, is going to set things right. We are modern day sodom and gomorrah, and we are infecting the entire world with our satanic tv, movies, music, and the internet (the whore of Babylon that all fornicate with). We have years, not decades. Might not even get to 2020. Revelation 18. Who does it describe? And we sit here and poke the bear,… Read more »

That certainly seems to be an emerging consensus, on an intuitive gut level. Not too long ago “getting violent” might have actually been worthwhile, when there was enough left that was worth fighting for. Now I think the only justification for violence is self-defense. The darkness is spreading, and at an accelerating rate, and shows no signs of abating or even slowing down, except for an occasional tactical “victory” on our part. And the vast majority of people, having no grounding in anything transcendent or spiritual, much less Christian, passively accept this state of affairs, utterly unaware. The only question… Read more »

Was he in a biology class ? If I was picky, I’d say there a third gender, a hermaphrodite.

A person born as a hermaphrodite suffers a tragic condition, and must receive the respect and love of society. But this 57 genders thing makes a mockery of people suffering from being a hermaphrodite.

I’ve had a number of fares in different rides where the college students complained, to me and between themselves, and I can tell you that this has been going on in colleges and universities here in New York (NYU) and around the country. So someone has pushed this agenda, and it has been in the planning for years. This issue is BIG. Because we’re not just talking about censoring Alex Jones. This is bigger than internet deplatforming and censorship. This is an organized attempt to create and control THOUGHTCRIME, straight out of “1984,” and we can guess which… “tribe” or… Read more »
